It’s amazing how quickly you can tell how clueless most anti-Trump protesters are by the signs they carry. Take as an example those protesting what they believed to be a “Muslim ban” (that for some reason didn’t attempt to ban 90% of the Muslim population), who descended upon the nation’s airports in protest.
They must have never heard the old adage that it’s better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
Here were some of the best of the worst:
Protesters think the Constitution guarantees unlimited, unvetted immigration into the country
For some reason this man thinks we have all magically changed our religions
The travel ban is now somehow anti-immigrant, even though it only temporarily bars travel for 6 countries with ties to terrorism and poor vetting processes in place
Do these people even know what they’re protesting, or are they just recycling the rhetoric they heard over at MSNBC?
No, and yes.
Back in February after Trump signed his first executive order implementing the temporary ban, Fox’s Jesse Watters met up with a number of students in New York City who were protesting the ban. And what did they know about it? Not much.
“Which nations are on the travel ban list?” Watters inquired of one student.
The student, clearly unsure of what to say, uttered: “Well, as of right now, I’m not completely sure about the actual countries.”
Other class-skipping students claimed the ban targeted Lebanon and Afghanistan — neither of those countries is outlined in the executive order.
When the Fox personality asked one female student why she wouldn’t want to see potential visa applicants or refugees “extremely vetted” before they enter the U.S., she wondered why the government would want them to be screened in the first place.
“Why should they be extremely vetted?” she asked Watters, who replied, “Because [the countries in the ban] are havens of terrorism.”
“America’s a haven of terrorism,” the student quickly shot back, offering no explanation for her inflammatory claim.
One student found himself in agreement with the details of Trump’s travel ban, but nevertheless protesting against it. Watters asked if he believed in borders, to which the student replied “If you’re cool and all, you’re coming in to help me, I’m cool with that. But you’re not coming here to mess things up.” Watters then asked “So don’t you wanna check to see if someone’s ‘cool’ before you let them in?”
Things got priceless after that.
Student: “Well, of course, you always wanna check. That’s why we have our airports.”
Watters: “And that’s why we want extreme vetting.”
Student: “Of course, of course.”
I suppose Trump Derangement Syndrome is in full force if he’s protesting something he believes in just because Trump’s name is attached to it.
