Connecticut Democrat Chris Murphy Schools Republicans on Trump Muslim Ban

Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 09:53 pm

Yesterday, Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy tweeted a disturbing photo that, because of its image, got a very powerful message across:

Sen. Chuck Schumer yesterday called Trump’s Muslim ban “one of the most backward and nasty executive orders.” Today, in a series of tweets, Murphy schooled those who compared “Obama’s reluctance to militarily intervene in Syria and the #MuslimBan” imposed by Donald Trump:

Of course, Donald Trump has vowed to exterminate “Islamic extremism” and would argue that he is putting out a fire. The Iranian Foreign Ministry has already pointed out that, on the contrary, “despite claims of being made to combat terrorism and protecting the people of the United States, it will be recorded in history as a great gift to extremists and their supporters.”

Meanwhile, people are dying. Refugees are dying. People who, like the Jews fleeing from Nazi Germany in the 1930s, and who were refused entry into the United States, will die instead. Chris Murphy is right to condemn American moral leadership. It has none. That disappeared on the day President Barack Obama left office. We are left with a moral void named Donald J. Trump.

Hrafnkell Haraldsson, a social liberal with leanings toward centrist politics has degrees in history and philosophy. His interests include, besides history and philosophy, human rights issues, freedom of choice, religion, and the precarious dichotomy of freedom of speech and intolerance. He brings a slightly different perspective to his writing, being that he is neither a follower of an Abrahamic faith nor an atheist but a polytheist, a modern-day Heathen who follows the customs and traditions of his Norse ancestors. He maintains his own blog, A Heathen's Day, which deals with Heathen and Pagan matters, and Mos Maiorum Foundation www.mosmaiorum.org, dedicated to ethnic religion. He has also contributed to NewsJunkiePost, GodsOwnParty and Pagan+Politics.
