So I’m reading this article … and it suddenly becomes crystal clear what I’m being sold and how it’s being sold:
Allowing a terrorist disguised as a refugee is a possibility, Sandweg said. But he added, “talk to any professional and they will probably say what keeps them up at night is the homegrown terrorist.”
In Paris, where 129 were killed in a combination of shootouts and bombings, some of those responsible were radicalized French or Belgian citizens.
“There is a notion that refugees are the source of the problem. Recent events show the opposite. Individuals get radicalized at home and it’s not the wolf slipping in in sheep’s clothing.”
Let’s take a look at the wording up there.
And “homegrown” terrorists are grown from what sort of seed, in general?
Next sentence “some of those responsible were radicalized French or Belgian citizens”.
Some of them. They didn’t even say “most” of them. And you know darned well that if they could say “most” of them, they would.
Second, if we look at the “radicalized” citizens, what was their path to said citizenship? I’ll bet francs to beignets they weren’t multi-generational French people named “Pierre” or “Francois”. Immigrants become citizens unless they’re there illegally. Refugees who have children have children who are citizens at the very least.
Now back to my first question … who is it being radicalized?
By saying “homegrown” and “citizens”, they are intentionally disguising the problem, and that is the problem of setting up a culture clash in your own country. It might not happen often in the first generation … but that’s not what’s been going on in Europe, is it?
This is exactly what one would expect when you import people from radically different cultures and bend over backward to allow them not to assimilate. This leaves, after a generation or two, a large population of unassimilated people who have thus not been able to successfully integrate into society, most of whom probably therefore have crappy jobs and don’t mix with their new “home” countrymen. And they understandably feel “separate” and “other”. And it just so happens that their religious cohorts in their families’ original home countries and around the world are all to willing to provide the spark needed for radicalization, even self-radicalization.
But it all happened here at home, so don’t worry about bringing more in. Nothing to see here. Move along.
