I have seen a lot of proselytizing lately, mostly by the conservative religious right, stating things like: “Veterans should come before migrants!” or “Veterans needs should come before illegals!” As a United States citizen you would be hard-pressed to disagree; and if you did, you more than likely will be labeled a liberal kook, or worse yet, an ISIS sympathizer. While this propaganda machine steamrolls along, and so many angry individuals hitching their patriotic wagons to it, I wonder if they have ever considered that this just might be a political trick bag?
We Americans really do pride ourselves on our black and white thinking when it comes to issues such as these. In this case it must be as simple making a choice between Veterans or Immigrants; or Veterans or Illegals? Or if you want throw them all together and have a nice false trilemma we could say that we have to choose between Veterans, Immigrants or Illegals? Please tell me that we have risen above these either or/s scenarios?
