Proving what I said yesterday here, Perez was a lapdog for hardcore Muslim supremacists when he was Obama’s Assistant Attorney General, a gutless tool doing the bidding of the terror-tied groups.
True to form, Tom Perez spouts the talking points of Islamic supremacists. First off, Islam is not a race, so calling Trump’s counter terrorism immigration measure racist is absurd. Secondly, it is not a “Muslim ban.” That would mean all Muslims were banned from entering the US. The ban excludes almost 90% of the world’s Muslims. This is a counter terrorist measure. Trump’s executive order states that it is designed “to protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States.” “The United States must be vigilant during the visa-issuance process to ensure that those approved for admission do not intend to harm Americans and that they have no ties to terrorism.”
Why didn’t Perez protest Obama’s ban on Iraqi refugees or Carter’s ban on Iranians?
DNC Chair Perez: Trump Immigration Order a ‘Racist’ Action Against Muslims
by Pam Key, Breitbart, February 26, 2017:
Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s order halting immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, newly elected Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez called it an “ill-advised and frankly racist executive action against Muslims.”
Perez said, “We see no evidence, Chuck, of anything constructive from this president. Hours into his presidency he made it harder for first-time homebuyers to buy a home. A few days later he tried to make it harder for people to save for retirement. He nominates someone to head the Labor Department who wants to gut overtime pay. He is continually talking one way, but I judge people by their actions. Look at the ill-advised and frankly, racist executive action against Muslims. He has governed from the far right in everything he has done.”
