How’s “diversity” working out for you?
How’s “diversity” working out for you?

Why is this so complicated? 

Especially after Tuesday’s jihadist slayings in Manhattan, the cry arose throughout the airwaves – why do these things keep happening?

So let me spell it out as simply as I can. Are you sitting down? Okay – here goes:

The reason we keep getting acts of terrorism is because we keep importing terrorists.

That is not politics. That is mathematics.

Let me repeat it for those who came in late: The reason we keep getting acts of terrorism is because we keep importing terrorists.
For instance, like most Americans, I did not know, until recently, that since the early 1990s we had a program named the “Diversity Visa Lottery.” So each year some 50,000 people are invited into our country from hellholes all around the globe, like Uzbekistan. Over there it is 96.3 percent Muslim, coincidentally.

That is where the Manhattan murderer came from…and, along with the rest, was welcomed with smiles over the years from types like NY Gov Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Sen. Chuck Schumer. Their smiles vanished after the attack when they had to explain how it happened on their support for diversity uber alles.

But that did not stop them from taking the stage to further dump on Trump and even though ashen-faced from shame, they continued to grandstand their Liberal pieties. As if none of this was their doing and if it came again between them and us, between migrants and citizens, they’d still choose the migrants.

President Trump wants to end the diversity lottery program. Trump wants to limit immigration altogether. Trump knows the math.

Let me repeat it for those who came in late: The reason we keep getting acts of terrorism is because we keep importing terrorists.

The very definition of the program, in view of the word “lottery,” means that we are GAMBLING with our security. 

Gambling is okay for horses; not for people. Betting on people, strangers especially, is a sucker bet.

Under these terms, we don’t really know who’s coming. 

In other words, we don’t really know who we’re betting on. Democrats and even some Republicans don’t care.

Trump cares. “The safety of our citizens comes first,” says Trump.

What a novel concept if you are a Liberal. 

To the question why – better ask where.

It was in Israel where all those deadly car and truck rammings began.

But the world and its experts took it to mean a Jewish problem rather than a universal problem. So nobody gave a damn. Let the Israelis deal with it; it’s got nothing to do with us. So they said, knocking on wood. They refused to learn…learn that, sooner or later, the same jihadists will come knocking anywhere and everywhere. 

From the terror tunnels of Gaza to the streets of New York, they will come.

Now even here jihadists feel they can get away with murder so long as they’ve got airheads like CNN’s Jake Tapper to assure us that Allahu Akhabar really means peace. 

Tell it to the dead, Jake. 

It’s a wonderful world of immigration jihad so long as they’ve got the fools of the world on their side – from de Blasio in New York City to Merkel in Berlin.

Now one man on a diversity LOTTERY visa from Uzbekistan comes to Manhattan and murders eight people.

We gambled. We lost.
