Whether you’re right, left, unaware or somewhere in-between…there is one thing every human can find common ground on. That is the need to feel safe…safety for yourself, for your family, for your friends…that’s where the refugee crisis comes in and decimates common ground. Who deserves to be safe? American’s or people flooding in to claim sanctuary? Well…Ted Cruz says… AMERICA and her Allies FIRST!
Ted Cruz spoke out clearly and I hope the American voting public will rally to his voice after this!
Here’s his entire statement:
“America must stand with our allies against the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism. This is an evil that does not discriminate between French, German or American, Christian, Muslim or Jew, soldier, football player, or concert goer. Their only goal is to murder those who do not submit to their vicious, totalitarian ideology.
“Our deepest condolences go out to our French allies, and I know the government of the United States stands by to offer any assistance necessary.
“We must now face the facts. Between the downing of the Russian jet over Egypt and this massive coordinated attack on Paris, we are seeing an unmistakable escalation of ISIS’ ambitions and the scale of their terrorist attacks outside Syria and Iraq. Even as chaos rages in Paris, we need to take immediate, commonsense steps to preserve our own safety.
“We need to consult closely with our NATO allies who may be targeted for additional attacks. We need to immediately declare a halt to any plans to bring refugees that may have been infiltrated by ISIS to the United States. We need to redouble our efforts to prevent ISIS agents from penetrating our nation by other means.
“Such steps, however, are defensive reactions to an enemy that will continue to try to attack us until they succeed once again. We must immediately recognize that our enemy is not ‘violent extremism.’ It is the radical Islamism that has declared jihad against the west. It will not be appeased by outreach or declarations of tolerance. It will not be deterred by targeted airstrikes with zero tolerance for civilian casualties, when the terrorists have such utter disregard for innocent life.
“We must make it crystal clear that affiliation with ISIS and related terrorist groups brings with it the undying enmity of America—that it is, in effect, signing your own death warrant.”
… Yes sir – I LIKE IT!!
There is one thing clear when Cruz speaks…he is no coward, and he makes sense.
This is a man that I trust to have all AMERICAN’S back. He will stand and do what’s right.
