Obama’s ironic Comparison

November 30, 2015

This Thanksgiving President Obama made a speech and in it encouraged the people to welcome the Syrian refugees. In the article written by the hill they have a quote from Obama that says:

“Nearly four centuries after the Mayflower set sail, the world is still full of pilgrims – men and women who want nothing more than the chance for a safer, better future for themselves and their families,” Obama said in his weekly address Thursday. “What makes America America is that we offer that chance.”

The article proceeded to include quotes from people across the nation who are willing to welcome refugees into their homes.

The article shows a supportive stance with Obama and the Syrian refugees. When I read the article I started to laugh because we forget that the Pilgrims actually cam over on the Mayflower and proceeded to kill the Native Americans. Not saying that the Syrians refugees would do the same, but it would be interesting to read about conservatives reaction to Obama’s statement.
