That link (above) is SO 1999!
It's now 2016, and the current version is:
"Send me your tired, your poor, your huddled rapists ..."
At the risk of being considered a "something-ist", I think that America needs to be just a little bit more particular about the "huddled masses" we welcome here.
5-year-old victim's father watched the video:
The case, which has largely been ignored or dismissed by the mainstream media, has created a political firestorm as pro- and anti-immigration proponents have clashed about the assault in an election year where the candidacy of Republican nominee Donald Trump has brought immigration and refugee issues to the forefront of national political discussion. Although the establishment press has given little time to the story that does not fit the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s narrative on refugees and immigration, the story has caused a stir on right-leaning media through the work of activists like Pamela Geller.What they are talking about is a five year old girl (FIVE YEARS OLD!) who was sexually assaulted by a group of adolescent boys. The parents of the girl ... at least the father .. was "treated" to a video of the attack.
Yes, the boys recorded the attack, and showed it around. Sweet.
The parents of the girl were 'encouraged' to not report the assault. Because they all came from a 'rape culture', you see, and so it's not really that
Stranahan: “The refugee family was trying to stop you from calling the police?”
Victim’s Father: “Yes. They were pleading with us, saying everything was okay, they did nothing wrong, you know – ‘No police! No police!’ – because they did not speak… they speak Arabic, so they had very few words that they can actually…”
Personally, I think that the boys who were involved in the attack (no matter how tangentially) should be forcibly returned to the country of their origin.
Their parents as well should be deported, because somehow they had failed to teach their children that Rape Is Wrong!
(Who knows what other dicta of a civilized society they do not understand?)
I know not what the culture is in their home country, but I refuse to allow them to import their sick cultural 'norms' into my homeland. I have children, and grandchildren here. They deserve to live under the cultural norms of my country; which do not include a casual acceptance of rape.
These are not Americans, they never will be, because it's obvious that they just ... don't ... GET IT!
Give me your tired, your homeless, your huddled masses yearning to be free.That dictum of the Statue of Liberty implies nothing about accepting "cultural norms" which are anethema to civilization, and America.
This is America.
We deal in lead.
