I'm starting to see an alarming number of individuals who are posting this idea that, somehow, the Syrian refugee crisis isn't their problem nor should it be. I'm going to post this on social media in the hopes to point out the severe problems in that line of thinking. I'm also hoping that this will serve as a go-to-guide for the enlightened to provide to their own social circles regarding how people should treat other human beings who are in need.
The crisis itself isn't something new. Ultimate reason to give a shit: They're human fucking beings. Get over yourself and take a good fucking look. Does that boy fall into your broken headed narrative at all? This isn't something that's up for fucking debate! That kid could easily have been someone you know. You don't leave a child to drown. E-V-E-R. I don't care what fucking religion they are, if they think homosexuals are living in sin, women are second class citizens or WHATEVER. You give them a place to stay, food to eat then you have a debate regarding their beliefs. It's not their fault they were dropped into a shit hole where that's what they were taught. Give them a fucking break considering they already know well enough to get the hell out of there. If you'd have been born there, you'd likely have the EXACT same outlook on life and their belief system. Don't act like you're somehow better than these people because you're not. You're one of the fortunate people who got to become self aware in the western world. You lucked out. They didn't. Stop being a self important asshole.
First of all, you need to inform yourselves on what exactly it's like over there. Then you need to learn about what it's like in the surrounding Arab countries. Life over there is far from simple. There's been a civil war that's been raging on for the past 4 fucking years. That coffee you ran out to get today, if you did that in Syria, it might have cost you your life. This is the reason people are choosing places like Canada, EU and the US. Because their chances of simply fucking dying are less likely. And yeah, they bring with them some of the less pleasant tenants of Islam but so fucking what? You show them what their world can be without that nonsense so either they or the following generation grows out of it because they're living in an environment that's not constantly drilling this bullshit into their heads or trying to kill them. We're all a product of our environment. That's why you lend people the better environment so they have a chance to better themselves. Unfortunately that requires the slightest amount of effort on our part. Luckily they're not going to hop on welfare and be unproductive. That's just bigoted bullshit. Grow up, take that silver spoon out of your gob and read up on the fucking world.
I don't know how else to explain human decency and common sense to the lot of you. It leaves me absolutely gobsmacked how little anyone cares these days. It's like even the least amount of effort that could help someone is too much. They'll post tons of content regarding the suffering of animals, but fellow man? Nope. They've got ideas man. Well so do you. Maybe you're the one who needs to get the hell out of this country because you certainly weren't paying attention in history class. I'll give you a hint. People in North America weren't always European.
