But is he wrong in saying that Europe isn't safe? Is he wrong in saying that the recent immigration surge has caused an escalation of terrorist attacks?
What is your definition of safe ? Compared to most places on earth yes Europe is pretty damn safe. The point of terrorism and ISIS recent attacks is to create fear primarily so if you let that happen then they win. He is wrong in saying that the recent immigration surge has caused an escalation of terrorist attacks yes.
It's about proportionality. It's irrational to fear something which is causing less loss of life than Americas gun policy but be cool with that. And in Europe Islamic terrorism has indeed not been as destructive in terms of human mortality as the gun laws in America. If you say Europe isn't safe based on Paris and Brussels, then nowhere is safe
We've already seen how ****ing dreadful Merkel's "roll-the-red-carpet" policy is, and now how she's gone back on her words.
Merkel's policy was dreadful and should never have been handled like that. Because it's created the conditions for the home grown ISIS supporters to demonstrate that Muslims can't live in harmony with non-Muslims. ISIS hijacked Germany's kindness to the people who are escaping who need refuge. It creates division and that is what they want.
Trump is expressing how they can't do the same in the US - which isn't wrong either.
He's isn't banning all Muslims, he's banning entry to dangerous Muslim immigrants (i.e he won't kick them out, he'll keep them out), and the wall is too help control immigration, which is already a serious problem in the US.
Tbh the fact you are a 'wall sympathiser' means this discussion is only gonna go one way.
Trump is using people like you to garner political support and unfortunately, it's working. Gotta hand it to him.
We are basically all pawns rn unless we use our own brains. We are pawns for ISIS for fearing and distrusting Muslims. And we are pawns for the Trump-esq ideologies which are being used to get into power. Same will happen with Brexit if we arent careful.
