    It's insane the response to a global catastrophe and insurgency is "they're all terrorists, ban them" and "Let them all in, borders are racist".

    Sensible border policies, vetting those coming in and a moral obligation to help those in need is the view of the majority, yet the loudest, most ill-informed, are steering the discourse.

    That the President of The United States and leader of the UK opposition are part of that is both embarrassing and frightening.

    I agree with what you're saying, but let's not forget that the people in charge were elected by the majority.

    I certainly do not question their mandate, but it's a loud majority of a minority. That does not take responsibility away from those who were taken in by a conman or a deluded, jam making fool who likes to dress up as Lenin.

    I suspect the vast majority of people lie somewhere in between in both countries.

    Our only hope is Putin chokes on it while pissing himself laughing.
