A Reader Says That Muslims Immigrants Should Not Be Excluded From America Because Of Their Gender Bias

Re: Brenda Walker`s Blog:
Fox News Investigates Honor Killings in the USA
Muslims immigrants may well be a dangerous addition
our polity, lacking in appreciation for the
give-and-take required in a modern democracy and, in
some individual cases, given to religious violence to
carry out their fundamentalist leanings.
But their view of proper relationships between the
sexes (excluding of course barbaric acts like honor
killings) is not the disqualifier Brenda Walker would
have us believe.
I would wager these statistics are far lower among
Muslims, and the idea of a "no-fault" divorce
wherein the admittedly
non-aggrieved wife can expect a handsome profit at
her ex`s expense is, without doubt, entirely foreign to
These are healthy qualities that we should strive to
emulate and not shun.
A Washington State Reader (Female) Says American Men Have Personality Traits Equally Unpleasant As The Women They Disparage

The thing is that those traits are all applicable to
American males as well.
Pierce has never sat through a date where a man is
still bitterly trying to figure out why his wife left
him. And to hear a promiscuous male with a gaggle of
children by multiple women (and the accompanying child
support payments) drone on about his money problems is
no treat either.
Yet I understand his disillusionment with American
I could be the poster child for
foreign relationships. The men I dated did not need
green cards, but what they all had in common was an
extreme dislike for women from their native country and
a fascination with American ladies.
Based on my life`s invaluable experiences, I would
advise Pierce to be careful what he wishes for.
At the end of the day, there is a lot to be said for
the American next door.

I`m glad Guzzardi has left my home state of
California…a "Hispanic" word, btw!
There were no

the Civil War.
I hope to read his obituary soon, and that of
Peter Brimelow as well! We can send his stupid ass
back to England.
By the middle of the 2020s, the student leaders of

By the middle of the 21st century, Guzzardi, Brimelow
