American Xenophobia?

Madness towards Mexicans and Muslims may lead to Facism. It would appear that our descent into irrationality has not yet hit its limit but getting close and it could have dangerous consequences.

The definition of XENOPHOBIA is fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign. How can this be when our country is all about the multicultural melting pot. The American story has in large part been written by intrepid souls fleeing persecution in search of a better life in a nation forged in liberty’s name and dedicated to the equality for all.

Politicians are spreading xenophobia and specially sweeping through the right wing for some time. Mexicans, Muslims, they appear to be all the same. US builds that wall, tracks them, deports them, keep ’em all out?

US House of Representatives passed a bill this week that would suspend the program allowing Syrian and Iraqi refugees into the U.S. until key national security agencies certify they don't pose a security risk.
The vote count was 289-137, with 47 Democrats joining 242 Republicans in favor of the bill to override Obama's veto threat.

These reactions are fodder for the so called Islamic State. Islamophobic hysteria is a prime recruiting tool for terrorist organizations. This is exactly the kind of overreaction that they hoped for. To use terrible acts of violence to horrify Western society into compromising our own humanity and our own way of life.
