Hillary Tears Republicans APART Over Bigoted Refusal To Accept Refugees (TWEET)

The attacks last Friday in Paris, France were not the beginning of Republicans’ refusal to acknowledge that we need to be accepting Syrian refugees.

For months, Republicans have been vile in how they’ve been speaking of people trying to flee the grips of a war-torn nation plagued with violence and the extremism of ISIS.

The attacks in Paris have just stirred the pots of bigoted rhetoric, and many in the GOP were quick to use the horror in Paris to justify their hatred of refugees, because they seem to think, with their twisted logic, that the refugees who are fleeing ISIS are also in ISIS. At least that’s what they’re preaching to their base and has been echoed from conservative talking heads. They are terrified of Muslims, all Muslims, and it’s reprehensible.

Completely over the hate speech being spewed from the GOP, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to point out how horrible they are alongside their blatant hypocrisy.

She wrote:

“We’ve seen a lot of hateful rhetoric from the GOP. But the idea that we’d turn away refugees because of religion is a new low.”

It’s ridiculously ironic that the same party who so eagerly wants to shout “religious freedom” whenever they can’t control other people via their religion so quickly turns against other people solely based upon their religion. They don’t want religious freedom for everyone, just themselves.

Unlike her Republican counterparts, Clinton has long stood by accepting Syrian refugees. Even more so than President Obama has indicated.

Like in generations past, refugees have come the United States to seek solace away from strife. The Statue of Liberty says it best as she boasts the poem “The New Colossus“:

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

The United States is, and forever shall be, the land of opportunity.

Thank you, Madam Secretary.
