BERLIN — President Trump’s attempt to suspend all refugee admissions and ban millions of Muslims from entering the United States continued to draw international condemnation Sunday — but there were also messages of support from some right-wing groups and quarters.


Trump’s executive order to halt refugee entries for 120 days and restrict for three months immigration by nationals from Libya, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — Muslim-majority countries with a combined population of 212 million — was partially blocked late Saturday. A U.S. District court judge issued an emergency stay preventing deportations for those already in the U.S. or in transit with valid visas.

  1. In one of my recent blog posts. I provided tRump’s inauguration message for anyone who might have missed it. I also offered a brief commentary at the end. One of my comments, which I feel is proving more and more apropos, was this …

    If you do not live in America? Screw you!

  2. I don’t remember a time in my life (I was born in ’57) when I’ve witnessed so much of the dark side of humanity on display as in the last week. Perhaps it’s that so many opinions are hurled on social media without having to look people in the eye, I don’t know. But I do know that I am appalled and disgusted with the attitudes of seemingly intelligent people; some of them people I know – it’s been startlingly upsetting. I can’t help but worry about how much worse it is going to get. My heart is with Americans whose lives are being put in everyday turmoil because of all of this. I wish I could just point to one man, but it’s clear that his supporters/benefactors are just as determined as he is to carry out their vision of what the USA should be. 😦

    • My heart is with Americans whose lives are being put in everyday turmoil because of all of this.

      This is the difference between you and many of the people you’re describing. So long as it doesn’t affect them personally, they’re going to justify and defend what’s going on. But once it hits home, watch how their attitudes will change.

    • It will get much worse, I believe. Trump’s presidency is just getting started.

      For those who are surprised by this dark turn of events (I’m not), I recommend reading “It Can’t Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis who tried to warn America nearly a century ago about the dangerous rise of fascist nationalism.
