The Left seems adamant about comparing the current "refugee" crisis to that of the Jews fleeing Europe in the 1930s.
They believe that it was a stain on our history that we turned some Jews away, and sent them home to perish in camps. The Left warns that history will be repeating itself should we fail to welcome migrants from Muslim majority countries, but the situations are very different.
When the Jews were being persecuted by the Nazis, the west had few reservations about calling the Nazis by name.
There was little fear of offending German minorities. Many German minorities in the west publicly denounced Nazi doctrine.
Such is not the case in 2015.
The refugees from the Middle East aren't looking just for safe haven, but for benefits. They're outright refusing to move to countries that don't pay out benefits.
To top that off, some of these refugees are silent about ISIL or extremism within their religion, or they admit to actually supporting it. Non-Muslim liberals are having trouble squaring these facts with their insistence that "extremists don't represent Islam."
The Jews fleeing Europe also weren't bred in a culture that hates the west, disregards women's rights, and that kills adulterers and homosexuals.
Although I'm sure some of them had views about women and homosexuals that would be considered unacceptable today, I've never heard Jews murdering women who didn't cover up, or pushing homosexuals from the tops of buildings.
I'm not saying every Muslim believes in these things, but the Middle East has been a barbaric, regressive region for some time. So when these people are raised with war, hatred, and murder all around them for their whole lives, it's no doubt they will bring that here.
I'm more than happy to help those in need. What I'm not willing to do is sacrifice or give up anything I was raised with to accommodate a culture who would not reciprocate that generosity. There are good Muslims in the world, and I welcome them with open arms.
To the liberals who can't make accurate historical analogies, just stop with the social justice warrior nonsense. It makes you look foolish.
