Madeleine is not so bright

Madeleine

As you’ve probably heard, President Trump is expected to sign an executive order placing a temporary ban on immigration from terrorist countries.

And before he even does it, unhinged, angry Leftists are howling like stuck pigs.

Imagine my utter lack of surprise that former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is one of the Leftists howling the loudest.

Um, Madeline.

I don’t mean to pick nits. But the executive order is to temporarily suspend immigration from terrorist countries.

It isn’t to create a registry of American Muslims, you moron.

I just don’t get it. Do Leftists not understand the English language?

Why is it these people are howling like wounded beagles over something Donald Trump doesn’t intend to do?

Suspending immigration from terrorist hot-spots is not creating a Muslim registry.

Oy, the work.

But Madeleine stands ready to register as a Muslim in the non-existent Muslim registry.

Great! And I stand ready to enlist in the non-existent Howdy Doody Circus Army!

Can you believe this idiot was once the Secretary of State?!

I didn’t think it was possible. But she manages to make John Kerry look like a Rhodes Scholar.

And Madeleine wasn’t done tweeting.

Oh, for heaven’s sake. Not this old chestnut.

Earth to Madeleine.

The poem by Emma Lazarus is not a law enacted by Congress. It is not a clause in the Constitution.

It’s a poem!

I don’t know how many of you know this. But “New Colossus” was written in 1883 as part of an auction to raise money for the construction of the pedestal on which the Statue of Liberty stands.

Obviously Madeleine Albright doesn’t know this.

I suspect she thinks it was written and passed by Congress and signed into law by a President.

In fact, “New Colossus” wasn’t even added to the Statue of Liberty until six years after Lazarus’ death.

And, I hate to break it to you, Madeleine. But there is fine print on the Statue of Liberty.

Beneath the poem are these words (from my post Only a Poem):

“This tablet, with her sonnet to the Bartholdi Statue of Liberty engraved upon it, is placed upon these walls in loving memory of Emma Lazarus.”

That’s the fine print, Madeleine. And the fine print is telling us, it’s a freaking poem!

Not a law.

Or an edict.

Or a Constitutional Amendment.

It is a poem!

Yet every time we try to enforce our immigration laws, Leftist morons like Madeleine Albright trot out “The New Colossus” as if it was carved on the statue by God himself.

Does she actually expect America’s national security and immigration policy to take a back seat to a freaking poem?

And you want to know why she resorts to citing a poem?

Because there is nothing in our Constitution or existing laws that prevents the President of the United States from limiting or suspending immigration.

Madeleine Albright does not have a legal leg to stand on. So instead, she does what all Leftists do. She demagogues and fear-mongers.

By pretending that President Trump plans to enact a “Muslim registry” when he never said that he would.

And by doing a little “virtue-signalling” by “bravely” vowing to register as Muslim.

Which isn’t especially “brave” of her since there will never be a Muslim registry to which she can register.

And to add insult to injury, Madeleine bases her entire argument on a poem written to raise money for the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty.

Now you see why Leftists can’t win an argument? They’re too busy arguing fantasy while conveniently ignoring facts.

This is all they’ve got, my friends.

And it’s exactly why they’re losing.

    To your question, “do they not understand the English language?”
    I submit that indeed the left does not, they spend so much time and effort to contort and confuse the meaning of those few words that make up our 2nd Admendment, that they are now incapable of actually understanding short, concise statements of limited meaning.

    Immigration from terrorist countries equals ‘all Muslims’ the same way opposition to ‘illegal’ immigration equals opposition to ‘all’ immigration. The Left can never be honest about their agenda if they want to succeed.
