OUTRAGE? Japan Refuses Refugees, Will 'Prioritize Its Citizens First.'
Yes, leftists are still recoiling from the Donald's "Muslim ban." Which isn't a Muslim ban, by the way. Read more about it here. Since news of it broke, there's been a lot of silly talk about violating human rights and such. You know, typical leftist claptrap. But as it turns out, not everyone hates the "ban." Apparently the Japanese drew some inspiration from Trump. Their Prime Minister laid down the law on refugees, Samurai-style...
Japan's prime minister said Tuesday that his nation needs to attend to its own demographic challenges posed by falling birth rates and an aging population before opening its doors to refugees.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced at the U.N. General Assembly that Japan... will provide $1.5 billion in emergency aid for refugees and for stabilization of communities facing upheaval. But speaking to reporters later Tuesday he poured cold water on the idea of Japan opening its doors to those fleeing.
He said Japan first needed to attend to domestic challenges which he proposes to tackle under a revamped economic policy that aims to boost GDP to a post-war record level, while bolstering the social security system to support families.
Good job, Japan. You said something that doesn't suck. Keeping your people safe and secure should always be priority number one. You know, because the open-borders way? Doesn't work out too hot. Just ask Europe (see Dear France: How's That 'Multiculturalism' Working Out For You?). If they have a moment to spare between bombings, that is. It appears Japan got wind of all the terrorism and would rather focus on one of its many other problems before adding to their plate. Can't say I blame them.
Notice anything amiss here? It's the lack of social justice behemoths stomping around in outrage. According to the left, this is very clearly "racism." And "Islamophobia." All the cardinal sins wrapped into one. Yet there's nary a protest to be seen.
But if this announcement was coming from someone non-Japanese, the left would waste no time before going Hiroshima on their behind. Too soon? Don't care. Apparently the SJWs of the world will let this one slide instead. Possibly due to their need for daily doses of sushi and anime.
Meanwhile, in the USA? Making sure refugees aren't killing or raping us is a big no-no, according to leftists. Because it's a violation of their basic human rights... Or something.
