Are You An Uzbekistan Terrorist?  Here’s An Online Application To Come To The United States, In Your Native Language

Printed from:

The title of the mechanism that got the Uzebekistan truck terrorist into the United States tells you everything you need to know:  U.S. Diversity Immigrant Visa Program.

Sayfullo Saipov, before he plowed down 20 pedestrians in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday, won a lottery to get into this country, through a program designed to bring 50,000 people a year to the United States from countries that don’t send many people here.


The most diverse country on earth … isn’t diverse enough?

If you’re nodding your head up and down in agreement with this “diversity” goal, you, too, are a victim – of the ideology of crazy people.

Let’s assume that ethnic diversity is, itself, a good thing. The United States has a lot of it. Why do we need more, and why should we put ourselves at risk to get it?

Consider:  A country is, first and foremost, for the people who are from the country. Next, it’s for people who aren’t from the country whom the country accepts. It isn’t for anyone else.

Whom should we accept?

Do you find that question hopelessly complicated? It isn’t. Only two standards are needed to figure out whether a foreigner ought to be allowed to come here:

1.  Are you in legitimate fear of your life from unjustified persecution in your native land?  If so, can you show us that you aren’t a threat to us if you live here?

2.  If you’re not in fear of your life in your native land, and assuming you can show you’re not a threat to us and our way of life, what can you offer the United States, something we need that we don’t already have?

Anything else is junk.

And here’s an example of said junk:  The U.S. State Department is accepting online Diversity Visa Program applications right now. Applications are available online in various languages, including in the truck terrorist’s native Uzbek.

The deadline is noon Wednesday, November 22. (That’s Eastern Standard Time, by the way, not Tashkent time.)

And if the prospective immigrant to our shores understands English, a 25-minute step-by-step video is available on the State Department’s web site.

A friendly-sounding young woman helpfully intones:

“The lottery aims to diversify the immigrant population in the United States, by selecting applicants mostly from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States in the previous five years.”

Mind you, she doesn’t say “diversify the population in the United States.” That would be ridiculous. By one count, at least 350 languages are spoken in this country. No, for some reason we are supposed to diversify the immigrant population in this country. Why is never stated. And it’s hard to imagine how it could be.

This is not a partisan issue. This strange program was passed in 1990, when George H.W. Bush was president; went into effect in 1995, when Bill Clinton was president; and admitted the Uzbek terrorist in 2010, when Barack Obama was president.

Neither is it a concern only to “the far right,” as The Washington Post claims in a “news” story Wednesday tsk-tsking President Donald Trump’s criticism of the program.

This is a concern for every American who does not want our country to commit suicide.

Let’s end this nonsense now – or at least by noon Wednesday, November 22.
