More Refugees, They Said. It Will Be Fun, They Said. [VIDEOS]

Americans from New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota dodged the proverbial bullet last weekend. Jihadis attempted to slaughter citizens with the bomb or the knife, and fortunately their efforts failed.

However, on that very same weekend while mayhem was breaking out on the east coast and in the Heartland — courtesy of the Allahu Akbar crowd — a New York Times columnist published a plaintive opinion piece begging Americans to accept more Muslim Syrian refugees. And he shamelessly invoked the memory of the Jewish Holocaust.

Nicolas Kristof actually asked the reader, “Would You Hide a Jew From the Nazis?”

Anne Frank and her family, 1941.

And if you answered “yes,” Kristof attempted to shame you into agreeing that European Jews and Muslim Syrians were much the same.

Referencing stories of those who hid Jews — some of whom paid with their lives — Kristof tied the plight of World War II European Jews with those of today’s Syrian refugees. He posited that “world leaders should reflect on . . . today’s refugee crisis — and they might find inspiration from those . . . who saw the humanity in refugees and are today honored because of it.”

Kristof also praised Angela Merkel, along with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, for showing “real moral courage on refugees” by bringing in thousands of Syrian refugees and turning parts of once-sophisticated Germany into hellholes.


When I read Kristof’s woeful attempt at virtue signaling, I thought of this quote from Maj. T.J. “King” Kong in the classic 1964 satirical film, Dr. Strangelove:

“Well, I’ve been to one World Fair, and picnic and a rodeo, and that’s the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones.”

Comparing European Jews of early 20th century Europe and today’s Syrian refugees is ludicrous. Let’s analyze, shall we?

Were Jews in Europe assimilated into their culture? Did they speak the language? Check, and check. Syrian refugees into Europe? Eh, no.

Did they practice a religion which easily meshed into the Western concepts of the secular state and freedom of the individual? Yes. Syrian refugees? Uh, that’s a big no.

Did Jews attempt to convert non-Jews to Judaism forcibly, sexually assault local women, and engage in honor killings? Did they demand that the laws of their religion hold sway over the laws of their government?

Did European Jews act like this?

Or this?

So the United States is expected to risk the above — and worse — when we already have a growing terror problem, as evidenced by the bombings and stabbing last weekend? And especially when Homeland Security can’t even accurately grant citizenship to the right people? And when Hillary Clinton wants a 550% refugee increase, even though security experts claim that it would make accurate screening impossible?

That’s worse than being Stuck on Stupid. That’s suicidal. And average American citizens will be the ones to pay.

    who saw the humanity in refugees

    But prog views of “humanity” are based on utopic ideas that everyone is really an angel – with enough training/education/money/gov’t involvement. Conservative views of humanity, otoh, are more based in reality.

    That’s worse than being Stuck on Stupid. That’s suicidal.

    That’s the whole point. They’re actually aiming to destroy all we hold dear.
