Don’t Get It Twisted, the EO-2 Is Still a Ban on Muslims

travel ban 2

    You said that Muslims are under attack and that this “has seemingly caught just about everyone else [non-Muslim] off guard”. I’d add as well that so many people, despite all the evidence — the travel bans, the meteoric rise in hate crimes, the bile from the alt-right writers, the inflammatory political rhetoric, and on and on — don’t even believe that Muslims are under attack. And, when we point it out, they dismiss it by saying, (sometimes in so many words, other times by implication) that we deserve it due to our “barbarity”.
