The United States of America, founded on Judeo-Christian values, has nevertheless always been a welcoming nation. Despite the modern-day attack on Conservatives and Tea Party advocates of limiting immigration to allow for full assimilation, history is 100% on our side.
There was a period between approximately 1914 and 1952 when this immigration had plummeted for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons was the outbreak of World War I. Another occurred in 1917 when an English literacy test was imposed for all immigrants. Yet another was a purposeful decrease down to only 2% of all ethnicities to be admitted for reasons of assimilation. World War II also played a part in this enormous disparity between the immigrant waves of 1880-1912 and 1965-1990.
With immigration comes a wide variety of customs and beliefs as well. For instance, Sharia Law has become a huge issue of contention in areas of the U.S. that have overly large populations of Muslims. Due to this, a brutal, barbaric practice known as Female Genital Mutilation has been found to be in wide practice. This week, the governor of Michigan has made it official. FGM is now a felony!
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed several bills on Tuesday that are making members of one religion furious. Their so-called “religious freedom” on U.S. soil is coming to a screeching halt, and now, one of their favorite rituals will be a punishable offense, making them pay big time.
Michigan’s Governor signed 13 bills this week, and two of them are long overdue. Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) will now be a felony in the state. Current law stated the crime is punishable by up to five years in prison, but now, it is punishable by fifteen years behind bars, and rightfully so. But, that’s not all.
FGM is seen as a religious ritual in the Muslim community. Practiced mostly in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, this sick tradition was recently discovered to have been taking place in the United States, as well. The disgusting act involves mutilating or removing portions of the female genitalia to prevent sexual pleasure.
“Those who commit these horrendous crimes should be held accountable for their actions, and these bills stiffen the penalties for offenders while providing additional support to victims,” Governor Snyder said. “This legislation is an important step toward eliminating this despicable practice in Michigan while empowering victims to find healing and justice.”
Michigan now joins another 25 states that have thus far banned this Medieval practice considered a horrible violation of human rights by many civilized nations, yet one that has so far been completely ignored by both the United Nations and the European Union.
As well, feminists who are always vocal about any hint of a violation of women, especially when it is perceived on the Right. Good luck to any woman who speaks out against brutality among Muslims. Feminists couldn’t care a wit about Muslim women. They’re too busy talking about infanticide.
