RE: Over half of U.S. states rejecting refugees
The number of states refusing to accept Syrian refugees has risen to 31. The majority of Americans do not want these refugees.

Seriously, this is a huge issue that will cost the Democrats the 2016 election.

States can't refuse to accept them. It is not in their legal authority.

The xenophobic, homophobic, racist, and ignorant right have been screaming this same drivel for years. And yet...Obama was elected and re-elected. HmmmConsider

It only counts as forgetting if they knew it in the first place. Many don't.

States can't refuse to accept them. It is not in their legal authority.

It's also not the majority of Americans. It's the majority of Republican Governors trying to fear-monger the lowest common denominator. Of which Darth Purple Helmet Head seems to be a part of.

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

It is a majority* of Americans




*the "Americans" that the GOP recognizes, which are republicans only (and libertarians in some cases)

The racist right? Hahaha. Come on man. You should take a look at the candidates running for the GOP nomination. Ted Cruz (Cuban). Marco Rubio (Cuban). Bobby Jindal (Indian). Ben Carson (African American).

Now look to the left.

This isn't a race issue. Republicans don't care about race. There might be racists on the far right, like the KKK, but that's not the majority of us, nor is it why we are against these refugees.

Burning flags is actually more patriotic as it displays the power of our 1st Amendment.
