I’m getting so tired of reading ill informed opinions on the refugee crisis. People who live in a land of diversity and tolerance acting if they really understand persecution. My news feed is full of comments which are either racist or completely uninformed.
Here are a few that have got my goat this week.
We should be looking after our soldiers first before anyone else.
Ok part of this is right, we should always be looking after our soldiers. Supplying them with the right kit to keep them safe, caring for them when they return. None of this is wrong but before anyone else? Tell me again how many of our soldiers have laid down their lives to fight against the persecution of others? They fight to protect the lives of their fellow man. I’ve never seen a solider ask to check the ethnicity or religion before he stands to protect someone. I think people do our armed force members a great disservice when they write this crap.
Our hospitals are struggling already we don’t need to add any more pressure.
True our NHS is struggling but this is due to underfunding by the prat that runs our country. Cameron would rather invest millions in a defunct defence system than actually saving the people he pretends to want to defend. If money was invested where it should be there wouldn’t be a struggle within the NHS.
They aren’t English so why should we help them?
This one really makes me sick, I am proud of my English heritage but we are all actually citizens of Earth.
Where you were born should never effect the value of your life.
We are all human, well someone better check all the Tories just in case.
The new one I’ve read this week is that the whole refugee crisis is a plan of ISIS to get it’s soldiers into our country.
First off maybe it is but let’s be honest it’s not a very good one. When we count the number of people who have died as they have fled the country. Secondly propaganda wise this sucks the treatment and violence that have forced this people to flee the country doesn’t make many think, oh yes those ISIS peeps have got it right and lastly how the hell can this be a undercover plan it’s not as if these people are entering our country under the radar. As for ISIS recruiting the refugees, Errmm tell me again who they are fleeing.
Seriously this has to stop, I am one of the first to say we need to start fighting for better treatment of our soldiers, for better support for our disabled, the poor, the homeless but it doesn’t have to be one or the other.
I truly don’t know the in’s and outs of this crisis nor will I probably know all the details of the next. I truly don’t know what has driven these people to risk their lives and the lives of their children.
Yet what I do know is this,
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.
