Editor’s Note: Not that I don’t agree with the statement but the ESTABLISHMENT ELITES run both parties and you might as well ask ISIS to turn in their weapons at the nearest police station as expect Ryan not to follow the bidding of his masters.
Much of the Republican presidential field has united in opposition of Barack Obama’s plan to integrate 10,000 largely unvetted Syrian refugees into the U.S. over the next year. In light of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris and subsequent reports that at least one of the militants involved entered Europe as a refugee, Mike Huckabee has led the charge to, as he put it, “stop the flow of terrorists to America.”
In a statement released Monday, the former Arkansas governor lambasted Obama’s refugee policy before turning his sights to a leader in his own party: new House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Huckabee ridiculed “Obama’s wimpish and amateurish response” to the Islamic terrorism that devastated France’s capital last week, writing that the reaction “reveals we have a Cub Scout for Commander in Chief instead of someone who is capable of defending America and unleashing something more than a strongly worded letter through the UN.”
He went on to contrast America’s weak reaction with the firm and immediate stance taken by the French government.
“It’s embarrassing,” he continued, “when a left-wing socialist French President shows strength and determination to eradicate animals who are slaughtering innocent civilians while our President lectures us on the moral necessity to open our borders to tens of thousands of un-vetted people from the Middle East.”
While France has closed its borders, Huckabee asserted that “all President Obama wants to do is close Gitmo.”
He ended with a direct plea to Ryan, asking him to “make it clear that if the President won’t stand to protect America from wholesale open borders, then Republicans will.”
If Paul – who replaced John Boehner as speaker less than a month ago – will not sufficiently oppose the Syrian influx, Huckabee wrote that he “needs to step down today and let someone else lead.”
