I find it amazing that in an age of information at a keystroke, people don’t inform themselves better and then proceed to go off half cocked.

Donald Trump is doing exactly what he said he was going to do on numerous occasions during the Primaries and the election proper. To paraphrase, “we should cease Muslim immigration until we can figure out what the hell is going on” and although you rarely hear it mentioned, the suspension is only for 90 days.

It’s also worth posing the question as to where was this mass fury, indignation and finger wagging when Obama suspended migration for Iraqi refugees for six months in 2011? In addition there have been 6 other occasions over the years when US Presidents have done similar.

In 1987 Ronald Reagan banned HIV positive persons, a ban that lasted for 22 years until 2009, under Reagan, Clinton, and Bush.

But the peak hypocrisy lies in the fact that 6 of the 7 countries banned for 90 days, have themselves a permanent ban on Jews travelling from Israel and not a word about it from the arbiters of decency and the preening, posing moral narcissists of the left. There are 16 counties in total, all Muslim, who ban people travelling on an Israeli passport.
A bit of perspective and less high minded moralising is in order.
