It just doesn’t make any sense.. liberals want strict gun laws while somehow respecting the Second Amendment because they think that somehow it will “reduce” gun crime.. yet when presented with the idea of “reducing” illegal immigration by putting up a proven defense against it in the form of a wall, they say it is not worth it because it will not stop 100% of illegal immigration.
GOP Candidate Ted Cruz spoke out last night after the Paris attacks and many people will rally to his voice after this!
We must make it clear that affiliation w/ ISIS & related terrorist groups brings w/ it the undying enmity of America https://t.co/oM9GFyPift
— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) November 14, 2015
Here’s his entire statement
“America must stand with our allies against the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism. This is an evil that does not discriminate between French, German or American, Christian, Muslim or Jew, soldier, football player, or concert goer. Their only goal is to murder those who do not submit to their vicious, totalitarian ideology. Our deepest condolences go out to our French allies, and I know the government of the United States stands by to offer any assistance necessary.
“We must now face the facts. Between the downing of the Russian jet over Egypt and this massive coordinated attack on Paris, we are seeing an unmistakable escalation of ISIS’ ambitions and the scale of their terrorist attacks outside Syria and Iraq. Even as chaos rages in Paris, we need to take immediate, commonsense steps to preserve our own safety. We need to consult closely with our NATO allies who may be targeted for additional attacks. We need to immediately declare a halt to any plans to bring refugees that may have been infiltrated by ISIS to the United States. We need to redouble our efforts to prevent ISIS agents from penetrating our nation by other means.
“Such steps, however, are defensive reactions to an enemy that will continue to try to attack us until they succeed once again. We must immediately recognize that our enemy is not ‘violent extremism.’ It is the radical Islamism that has declared jihad against the west. It will not be appeased by outreach or declarations of tolerance. It will not be deterred by targeted airstrikes with zero tolerance for civilian casualties, when the terrorists have such utter disregard for innocent life. We must make it crystal clear that affiliation with ISIS and related terrorist groups brings with it the undying enmity of America—that it is, in effect, signing your own death warrant.”
