Sayfullo Saipov, a 29 year-old man from Uzbekistan, in the US on a Diversity visa, used a Home Depot rental pickup truck as a weapon, driving onto crowded a bike path. Eight people were killed, and 12 more injured. Saipov was shot in the abdomen by a police officer. Saipov was residing in Paterson, New Jersey since 2010, and has also lived in Florida and Ohio. Saipov had a printout of an ISIS flag in the vehicle, and handwritten papers in English and Arabic, pledging his allegiance to ISIS were also found. From his hospital bed, he has said he “felt good” about the attack, and asked for an ISIS flag. He is being held without bail in a Federal holding facility. His public defender said Saipov was in a “significant amount of pain” and requested that he get medical care.
There have been 24 attacks perpetrated by Radical Islamic terrorist psychopaths in Europe, the UK, and the US, from January 7, 2015, to October 2017. The European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States have very open immigration policies, and very porous borders. Japan has had no attacks. Poland has had no attacks. Neither has Hungary or the Czech Republic. Japan does not allow Muslim immigrants into their country. Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic have strict immigration policies. When President Trump tries to strengthen our borders, and put restrictions on immigration, Hollywood liberals howl in outrage, and liberal judges do everything possible to fight these restrictions.
Consider this: You cannot work at Walmart, Target, Lowes or Home Depot without being vetted. This is also known as a background check. Vetting immigrants is not racist, or xenophobic, or hateful. Perhaps liberals should invite complete strangers into their homes without any questions if they truly believe what they say. Perhaps those who own businesses should hire people without an application, interview, or background check.
Another point the left will self-righteously repeat: the US was built by immigrants. That is correct. We are a nation of immigrants. Also correct. We have a population of 330 million, and no longer need immigrants to populate our nation. We are full up. Immigrant should enrich a culture, by bringing elements of their own culture, such as their food, drink, music and literature. Over time they should assimilate, by learning English, and adopting American dress and the values shared by democratic, free societies. The term melting pot is an ideal metaphor here. The immigrants from Ireland, Scotland, England, Canada, Poland, Italy, Germany, China, Korea, and Vietnam, who came here generations ago, have brought delicious food, the value of family ties, and hard work to America. We are strong because of these differences which have homogenized into the commonality of gratitude and love of a land where your freedom of speech, the press, assembly to petition freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms and to vote, the abolition of slavery, and law and order are valued. Those who come to this nation and refuse to discard the oppressive and toxic aspects of the culture they are from poison the melting pot.
How much longer are we going to allow Radical Islamic terrorists into our country? The barbarians are at the gate, and we open the gates and say come in. Do we have any sense of self-preservation? Or are we more concerned with being accused of racism (which is not even applicable, as Islam is a political-religious system, not a race) or xenophobia (also not applicable, as a phobia is an irrational fear, and fearing terrorists is quite rational, and fear is the literal goal of terrorists). Some elements of our culture our truly unhinged and deranged.
