Cuck Ronald Reagan took in 660,000 refugees   August 8, 2016

In his 1989 farewell address, President Ronald Reagan counted the welcoming of 660,000 unvetted refugees from war-torn Asia as among his most important achievements:

I’ve been reflecting on what the past eight years have meant, and mean. And the image that comes to mind like a refrain is a nautical one: A small story about a big ship, and a refugee, and a sailor.

It was back in the early Eighties, at the height of the boat people, and the sailor was hard at work on the carrier Midway, which was patrolling the South China Sea. The sailor, like most American servicemen, was young, smart and fiercely observant. The crew spied on the horizon a leaky little boat – and crammed inside were refugees from Indochina hoping to get to America. The Midway sent a small launch to bring them to the ship, and safety. As the refugees made their way through the choppy seas, one spied the sailor on deck, and stood up and called out to him. He yelled, “Hello, American sailor – Hello, Freedom Man.”

That’s what…it was to be an American in the 1980’s.

Of the ~660,000 refugees admitted during Reagan’s presidency, most were impossible to vet, and many came from enemy territory under Soviet influence.

Contrary to what the perpetual online grievance industry would have low-information voters believe, Obama accepted ~100,000 fewer refugees than Reagan.

You may recall that in 2015, Trump had the same position as Reagan– telling the O’RINO Factor that we “have to” accept Syrian refugees…

It was only after Team Cruz’s cynical attacks (cynical, in that– like Reagan and Trump– Cruz would’ve let them in too) that Trump was forced to adopt the anti-American position he holds today.

Sad!
