The "free speech" of terrorist sympathizers
Hamas terrorists are of the same fabric as the people who crashed planes into the World Trade Center. They should not be allowed to roam free in our homeland.
When passenger planes crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, the American people were shocked out of their apathy. People burned to death in the towers and were blown to bits in the Pentagon. Others jumped out of the windows of the skyscrapers to their grisly demise rather face a much more prolonged and painful death by fire. For a brief moment, we understood that the War on Terror is a religious war and that you could not negotiate or seek peace with fanatics.
In the aftermath, we learned a horrible truth: We allowed Muslim terrorists into the country, and they used box cutters to turn our transportation infrastructure into instruments of mass murder. The American people demanded that we have more strict restrictions on and screening of immigrants from terrorist hot spots, because allowing Islamo-fascist radicals to run free in our homeland is literally a ticking time bomb.
When Republican candidates for President call for revoking the student visas of foreign nationals who openly protest in support of Hamas terrorists after the genocidal pogrom against Jews on October 7, they are not bowing to Israel. They are re-learning the lessons we should have had permanently seared into our brains 22 years ago. Having terrorist sympathizers running around free is a direct threat to our national security. We should not forget that Americans were also slaughtered and taken hostage by Muslim terrorists on October 7.
But what about free speech? Does the First Amendment not protect even the most odious ideas? Sure it does. But it is a privilege to be a non-citizen residing in these United States, not a right. No non-citizen has the "right" to live here, especially when they are actively promoting and defending a genocidal group that conducted the worst mass murder of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust. Removing foreign terrorist sympathizers from our homeland is a matter of national security. This is not about free speech. This is about immigration policy.
What we need to realize that Hamas terrorists are of the same fabric as the people who crashed planes into the World Trade Center, bombed the USS Cole, murdered 270 people by bombing Pan Am flight 103 in December 1988, and mercilessly slaughtered dozens of people in a coordinated suicide bombing attack on buses and trains in London on July 7, 2005. We should not permit foreign nationals who openly support genocidal terrorists to remain in our homeland and menace the American people. Allowing this to continue is a betrayal of the public's trust.
