Unless one actually believes, not just hopes, that we, as a race, have made quantum leaps in enlightenment in the last 73 years, then the feigned abhorrence regarding Trump's words are just that.

I'm not saying any of it is right. I'm just trying to put the harsh light of day on it.

The fact is, it no longer seems to matters as much how we got here. We're here. Someone is trying to kill us, and they are succeeding.

They don't have me deal with the public very often (for a good reason). But I didn't know who this guy was until the boss recused himself also, came in the back and pointed him out...

Oh and for the record, I do not support either of these positions.  Just was making the point that foolish knee jerk reactions and bigotry are not the exclusive domain of the Republican party.

In 1979 Iran had the largest population of Jews in the middle east outside of Israel. Most of them were driven into exile, but as of 1979 they hadn't been.

There were about 400,000 Baha'is (another persecuted minority) in Iran at the time of the revolution.

Iran has over 300,000 Christians at present (haven't been able to find historical figures), the largest single religious minority.

All of these are/were citizens of Iran. Non of them were allowed in.

Yes, Iran's government is a theocracy. And a brutal dictatorship. So is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, whose citizens are and were welcome to visit the US. Claiming that Carter's action against Iran equates to a proposal to ban visits by Muslims is absurd.

But let's skip that for a moment and move on to a practical matter: US Customs and Immigration doesn't have any way of determining what a visitor's religion is. They aren't allowed to subject visitors to any scrutiny based on religion*.

Yes, there has been bigotry across the political spectrum in our history. Non of it justifies or excuses any further bigotry.

*This is not to say they haven't. There is an ongoing lawsuit filed in 2012 over exactly that, and I can't see any way La Migra will prevail.

That is right and the Persians themselves are actually the most progressive citizens in the region, the distinction between Iranian citizens and their government is akin to the distinction between all Muslims and Muslim extremist.

You are aware, of course, that Iran is a country (and one engaged in hostilities against the US at the time) and not a religion, right?

Right?

Trump:

At a campaign rally in South Carolina on Monday, Trump suggested that Microsoftfounder Bill Gates could help censor parts of the Internet from radicalized individuals.

  "We're losing a lot of people because of the internet," Trump said. "We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, 'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people."


Clinton: 

The tech industry can help stem the tide by finding ways to “deny online space—just as we have to destroy their would-be caliphate—we have to deny them online space,” she said.

Clinton acknowledged that “this is complicated—you’re gonna hear all the usual complaints: freedom of speech, etcetera.” Still, she said, “if we truly are in a war against terrorism and we are truly looking for ways to shut off their funding, shut off the flow of foreign fighters, then we’ve got to shut off their means of communicating.”
