Republicans and the supporters of Trump's Muslim ban, nativists and other anti-immigrationists can just shut up. Nobody is fooled by your faux compassion for the Afghans. Conservatives bemoan that Afghanis may not be able to leave Afghanistan, while at the same time throwing out an American unwelcome mat.

I especially don't want to hear from those who cheered and supported our occupation of Afghanistan.

“If history is any guide, and it’s always a guide, we will see many refugees from Afghanistan resettle in our country, and over the next decade, that number may swell to the millions,” Tucker Carlson said on his FOX News program. “So first we invade, and then we are invaded.”

“Is it really our responsibility to welcome thousands of potentially unvetted refugees from Afghanistan?” Fox News host Laura Ingraham said on her Monday show. “All day, we’ve heard phrases like, ‘We’ve promised them.’ Well, who did? Did you?”

    Strange bedfellows! You and Tucker agree that Joe did the right thing in abandoning our allies to be tortured and killed by the Taliban?

    po and Donna agree with Trump about leaving Afghanistan. Now this!

    Oy effin vey!

    Curt,

    I've come to realize that the SwampMedia is filled with liars. I saw the Newsweek article. So, I went on YouTube and watched last night's Tucker.

    You, at best, misrepresented what Tucker said.

    Tucker had an Afghanistan War vet as a guest, incidentally, a House of Representatives member from one district west of me.

    He talked about many Afghanis secretly fighting with terrorists and told how one who his unit considered to be a friend, led an attack that killed one and injured four.

    He splained the absolute necessity that these people be carefully vetted. He was not xenophobic in any way. Pragmatic, certainly.

    Thanks for spreading the lie. Splains how you can believe Clouseau as naively as you do.

    HtS,
    So you think that Carlson wasn't fearmongering with "we will see many refugees from Afghanistan resettle in our country, and over the next decade, that number may swell to the MILLIONS"?


  4. by HatetheSwamp on August 18, 2021 6:23 pm

    Fearmongering? Nah.

    Did you actually watch it?

    Bahahahaha hahahahahaha hoohoohoohoohoohoo hehehehehehehe hoohoohoohoohoohoo hehehehehehehe hahahahahaha hoohoohoohoohoohoo hehehehehehehe hahahahahaha, ahhhhhh!

    No. I think he was concerned that Afghanis won't be vetted adequately and they should be.


  5. by Donna on August 18, 2021 8:57 pm
    Vetting refugees is standard practice, right?


  6. by HatetheSwamp on August 19, 2021 4:01 am

    Donna,

    I suppose it depends on how you define the word. The way most Americans define it, Joe's not doing it on the southern border.

    And, if that's how Joe'd do it with refugees from Afghanistan, Tucker is more than justified in saying every word he said.


  7. by Donna on August 19, 2021 10:01 am
    Most Americans are uneducated on civics and government operations like taking in refugees and the asylum process. To those people, if they imagine something is true, or if some self-serving dickead like Tucker Carlson says it's true, then it is.

    Somehow it always comes down to you and your side being smarter and morally superior to people who think differently than you...

    ...or, more honestly, to me and people who think as I do being stupid and evil.

    Ah, if people only understood, they'd be just like you. It's too dang bad that everyone can't be you!

    What an absolutely stunning and intellectually compelling argument!

    I try as hard as I can not to think that you are sanctimonious. But, what adjective fits better!!!!!?


  9. by Curt_Anderson on August 20, 2021 7:54 am
    HtS,
    When has there ever been a conflict in which one side was NOT morally superior or smarter than the other side?

    When people are equally smart and equally moral their differences can be resolved peacefully and amicably


  10. by HatetheSwamp on August 20, 2021 8:10 am

    No doubt, Curt.

    What has fascinated me about what passes for progressivism these days is your side's constant insistence that you are smarter and better than people who are different than you.

    You can scream that, without ceasing, from the highest mountain. But, your ranting it doesn't make it so.

    What your believing it does is demonstrate your sanctimony.

    HtS,
    In the past there have been people of goodwill with different political ideologies. There have been Tories, Federalists, Whigs, Democratic-Republicans, liberals, conservatives and members of the more moderate and Republican parties who were all smart and decent people.

    However Donald Trump brought back the Know-Nothing party. And I'm not only referring to his nativist proclivities. His misunderstanding of and false statements about the Constitution are well-documented. In just the past couple of days he made the ridiculously erroneous statement that he cannot say if he's running for president or not because it would be "against the law". The ignorant finally have one of their own rise to the political heights.

    So yes, much of what passes as political discussion nowadays isn't an exchange of ideas, it's a debate between the informed and the uninformed.

    "However Donald Trump...

    What hell your life must be with Donald John Trump living in your brain!!!!


  13. by Curt_Anderson on August 20, 2021 10:19 am
    HtS,
    I appreciate you're not offering a rebuttal or attempting in any way to refute my observation.


  14. by HatetheSwamp on August 20, 2021 10:32 am

    That was rebuttal. Trump is entirely irrelevant to anything taking place in this moment. Afghanistan. COVID. Anything.

    You are obsessed!

    Join the conversation about the historically significant events that are taking place and developing by the minute.

    Trump is entirely irrelevant to anything taking place in this moment. -----HtS

    I wish he were irrelevant. He insist on inserting himself in any political or cultural news. He is the Republicans' most prominent presumptive candidate for president.

    And if he's not spouting off, Trump's followers are, like the would-be bomber they arrested yesterday in Washington DC.

    Anyway Trump certainly is relevant to the Afghanistan conversation as he was the one who made promises to withdraw from Afghanistan although he had no actual intention to do so.

    I watched the speech today and am finishing the last of the pressers and have been bouncing back and forth between CNN and Fox.

    Trump's name is not being mentioned...by ANYONE!

    You need to try to find reality again, Curt!
