Glenn Beck praised the people of Iceland on Tuesday for petitioning their government to accept more refugees fleeing the Islamic State, thousands of Icelanders even offering to house the refugees in their own homes.
“Out of a country of 300,000 people, 10,000 people in 24 hours said, ‘I’ll offer up my home. I’ll offer up my money.’ I’m asking you to do the same thing today,” Beck said on his radio program. “I’m going to post in a few minutes just a quick note that just says, ‘What churches will take a family? What people will take one person? Will you offer up your home?’”
Beck said that when he began warning that the world was going to repeat the 1930′s and people would have to “hide or take people,” everybody thought he was “nuts.”
Everybody already thought you were nuts, we didn’t need your violation of Godwin’s Law to arrive at that conclusion. I don’t know who is more nuts, Glenn Beck, or the Icelandics welcoming this invasion.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, half of Syria’s population has already been either internally displaced, externally displaced or killed because of its ISIS vs Assad internal strife. The total number of those externally displaced, i.e. those leaving Syria to seek refugee status elsewhere, is four million. As Nutty McNutNut rightly points out, Iceland only has 300,000 people, fewer than the whole City of St. Louis. Four million versus 0.3 million, guess who wins that demographic war. Even if Iceland only takes in one percent of Syria’s emigrant refugees, 40,000, it’s going to change Iceland so much that those who are welcoming it now are going to wish to God they never did.
But, if space is what Glenn Beck thinks the Syrians need, there’s plenty here:
