Look at thanksgiving memes talking about the irony of thanksgiving and religious refugees and think back to all the memes about Colombus and the Europeans killing millions of American Indians. How much overlap are you noticing. I am noticing a ton

It's like. One has to let anyone on your land that wants on your land, or you are a xenophob . At the same time, keep in mind, after they 'slaughter you' and take your land, just don't celebrate them, or you are being oppressive.

I agree with the parallels between the natives and the "Columbus" era explorers; and the "refugees" that are heading our respective directions... Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

The next batch will have just as many.

I agree with you, but your analogy paints thousands of people as undesirable based on the actions of a few.

It's not being a xenophobe, it's being racist. Painting a group of people with a broad brush because you are afraid because some people from their group are crazy. I wonder if you are a Christian and whether you would enjoy being compared to Westboro or the KKK...

I disagree, if you want to travel internationally you need a passport. The reason behind this is not just to identify you as a person but to allow foreign states to determine weather or not they wish to allow you into their country (which is why felons must apply for a ministers permit to enter Canada for example). Many refugees do not have such credentials due to the nature of their departure from their homeland. That doesn't mean we should just welcome them with open arms (or borders). Its not painting a populace as undesirable per say, just that you need to weed out the few bad apples from the good.
