Biden vows travel ban lifted day one; wants Islam taught in schools

Avatar

Joe Biden promised that the very first thing he’d do if elected as president is lift the travel ban that President Trump imposed on selected countries that pose a national security threat to the U.S.

“Donald Trump has fanned the flames of hate in this country across the board through his words, his policies, his appointments, his deeds, and he continues to fan those flames,” Biden said of the travel ban, according to the Hill.

Biden made his comments to Emgage Action, the largest Muslim political group in the U.S., on a virtual summit arranged with controversial Muslim activists Linda Sarsour.

“I will end the Muslim ban on day one. Day one,” Biden told the virtual attendees.

Although the ban includes a disproportionate number of Muslim majority countries, the ban also includes North Korea, Venezuela and Nicaragua. The other countries included in the ban are: Eritrea, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Libya, Myanmar, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania and Yemen, most of which are engaged in bloody civil wars.

Visas, under the Trump order, are issued to applicants from the banned countries only on a case-by-case basis.

The Supreme Court has subsequently upheld the Trump travel ban as Constitutional.

“Writing for the majority,” reports the New York Times, “Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said that Mr. Trump had ample statutory authority to make national security judgments in the realm of immigration.”

The Trump campaign countered Biden’s rhetoric saying that President Trump better understands how to protect the religious beliefs of all Americans, including those who are Muslim.

“President Trump understands that our faith is what unites us as a nation,” said Courtney Parella, a campaign spokeswoman according to USA Today. “He has and will continue to staunchly defend religious freedoms for all Americans.”

Biden also told the Muslim audience that he wished the country’s schools did more to teach about Islamic faith.

“I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith. I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths. It’s one of the great confessional faiths,” said Biden.

That comes as surprise to most Americans as the Pew Research Center reports that in 2005 Biden said that separation of Church and State shouldn’t be messed with when it came to teaching Christianity in schools. He also voted against withholding federal funds from schools that deny students the right to pray.

But as a number of American Muslim leaders such as Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Congressman Andre Carson, (D-IN) said, in a joint letter urging Muslim support of Biden, what you are for isn’t as important as what you are against.

“Our number one goal is to remove Donald Trump from office.”

    Keep you FRIENDS close. and your ENEMIES CLOSER . . . ISLAM is NOT your friend, but a TROJAN Horse of Destruction. I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who wanted the COLONISTS to learn about ISLAM, to learn of their DESTRUCTIVE, hateful ways. Allah is NOT God (he is a MOON god) and Muhammad is NOT a prophet (he was a REPROBATE and a PEDOPHILE. Look into his HISTORY). One Enlightened and WARY Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    Biden should not be allowed to run for office. His mental capacity is questionable and his beliefs change day to day.

    I am just absolutely in disbelief of what Joe stands for! In schools Christian groups are not allowed, but any other type is allowed. And Joe wants Islam taught in schools? Beyond belief! Is this another example of his dementia, or just more pandering for votes? Either way this man is too sick to even be running…

    If he wants Islam taught in schools then equal time must be given to teaching Christianity, Catholicism, Judaism, Buddism, Hinduism, and all other religions that are practiced in America.

    Islam is not compatible with the American constitution remember we hold these truths self evident and are endowed by our creator (The Lord Jesus Christ) with these inaliable rights to LIFE LIBERTY and the pursuit of HAPPINESS Islam is a cradle to grave doctrine that is why it can cohabitate with cradle to grave political and cultural belief systems as Marxism but only till Marxism see’s the threat.

    The Muslim faith is a contradiction to the values of Christianity and have always been intent to destroy the Christian world and all people of the Christian faith. Biden follows the Anti-American drumbeat of the likes of AOC , Omar, Tlaib. Presley and the far left. It is to the detriment and I’ll fortune of America and it’s people if this is allowed to happen.

    So Biden is telling them, (Muslims) what they want to hear also. If he were talking to 911 family’s of the victims he would say just the opposite. That is one thing I really appreciate about trump, he says what he means. No, flipping back and forth. You can’t teach any, religion in schools if you can’t teach Christianity the founding religion? Besides the Muslim religion being violent and brutal towards women, it can’t legally be taught. Remember the separation clause you democrats like to misquote when it suits you?

    That’s not true? The Muslim religion wants to destroy anyone who is not a Muslim! “If they don’t convert, kill them with the sword”. Maybe we Christians should try that? Our churches would be filled? Just kidding! That would be a violation of the first as well as Christian doctrine. Jesus doesn’t force anyone to do anything. He leaves it all up to you.

    If you don’t know by now these two things get with it . First, Biden is a puppet who will do whatever he is told by the radical Marxist Democrats. He will do anything they tell him to do . If that doesn’t scare you oil don’t know what will . Second, The Muslim religion is based on pure evil. Kill all that don’t believe. That means all Christians and Jews .

    Hey Biden knock knock anyone home? Last I looked this is America and when you come here it’s American way. English, American anthem and flag, history, 4th of July, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Freedom of speech, salute our military, respect our laws, kneel only to God, respect tour President of the United States, where our government works for us, Hollywood does movies, singers sing, other politicians don’t attempt coup on the elected President, foreign people don’t become our President then use government against us while getting rich in process, people coexist, sports are American, right to do what we want within the laws, have a constitution, Americans First no matter the color of our skin, do the crime do the time, no one is above the law, such a thing as rule of law, a system of fair justice, innocent till proven guilty, unbiased judges, and so much more. Want to learn Muslim go to the country that teaches it. This is America, with Americans, the American way, living the American dream, buying American products and Americans having American jobs. People who hate America are considered terrorist. God Bless America. How I forgot democrats are running what ever country this is all I know socialism is taking my beloved America from me.

    Most of the countries on the ban list were determined a threat to national security by the Obama/Biden administration. The previous administration had not yet imposed their intended ban before President Trump’s inauguration, to prevent damage to Deocrat election optics. Well, here we are at election time again. Amazing how National Security comes second to Democrat election optics. Democrats do not care one iota about American citizens, only interested in pandering to “one world order” global political optics, continuing a subservient world apology tour, Americans be damned.

    Islam is already taught in middle school social studies curriculum. If Biden wants the faith taught more in schools, then we need to bring Christianity back as well.
