It is time to address the Syrian Refugee Freakout, and that is just what David Waldman does today — aided by the full KITM all-star lineup: Greg Dworkin, Armando, and Joan McCarter!
But first, the polls are out and Greg Dworkin has got them:
Military leaders concerned that Washington hasn’t learned a thing from previous wars.
David and Armando review an article by Kevin Drum: “Liberals Should Knock Off the Mockery Over Calls to Limit Syrian Refugees”. If mockery is off the table, how does one confront the unconstitutional, un-American, illegal, impossible “positions” that won’t change anything, would make things worse, and aren’t actually policy proposals, but pure unadulterated bigotry without being called on to “reasonably compromise” with blatant immorality?
Joan McCarter joins the discussion: Republicans are laying the groundwork for a government shutdown to prevent any funding for a refugee resettlement program. In fact they have recently attached policy riders to many spending bills vowing to shut its borders to people fleeing political persecution, violence, famine, and abject poverty based on their religion.
Mitch McConnell isn’t letting xenophobia get in the way of misogyny. Is Gop hatred of Obamacare bigger than all concerns? Or can it just wait?
The Koch Brothers have a spy program — to spy on liberals.
Want to be as smart as Einstein, but don’t like big words? Here you go.
