A recent Quinnipiac poll found that 58 percent of Americans thought “homegrown” terror presented the greatest threat to the country’s safety.
This result indicates the growing success of liberal government media to blur the meaning of words (particularly regarding immigration) to further its globalist ideology in opposition to American borders and culture. The press routinely uses the word “homegrown” to blame America for evil and conveniently omit perp facts regarding foreign birth, alien religion or connections (like immigrant parents, in the case of San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook).One example that comes to mind is the wanna-be Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad (pictured), who was widely called a “homegrown” terrorist, even though he came here as young adult on a student visa for college. He got an MBA, became a US citizen but later went to Pakistan for jihad training so he could more effectively slaughter lots of Americans. Despite his foreign background, Shahzad was an example in a 2010 Sixty Minutes report titled, “Uncovering the Roots of Homegrown Terrorism.”
Such is the unmitigated crap we are routinely fed by media. It’s designed to make people give up on following government in confusion and disgust.
Back to the poll under discussion, the Quinnipiac survey question was curiously specific in its details:
81. Which do you think poses a greater terrorist threat to the U.S., terrorists hiding among Syrian refugees, radicalized foreign visitors or so-called “homegrown jihadists”?Foreign “visitors” — is that the latest euphemism to avoid the “I” word?
Instead of a jumbled mess of a poll question, why not simply ask, “Does Muslim immigration constitute a danger to Americans’ safety?”
Here’s a news report on the sketchy poll:
Poll: Americans say homegrown jihadists greater threat than foreign-born, Fox News, December 03, 2015
The majority of Americans believe homegrown jihadists are a greater threat to the United States than foreign terrorists, according to a new poll released Thursday.
Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed for a Quinnipiac University National poll say jihadists raised in the country are America’s most likely terrorism danger. Sixteen percent say terrorists hiding among Syrian refugees are a great threat, while 17 percent say radicalized foreign visitors are.
The same survey found 52 percent of American voters were opposed to letting Syrian refugees into the U.S. Among political lines: 68 percent of Democrats would accept refugees, while 84 percent of Republicans would oppose it. Independent voters were divided as 46 percent support accepting refugees while 49 percent opposed the idea.
The survey also found 6 out of every 10 people said they worried the government wasn’t going far enough to protect them against terrorism.
The poll comes as momentum to slow the flow of Syrian and Iraqi refugees to the United States grows.
Opinions on security screening for refugees depended on how much voters know, Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll said.
“It takes time and meticulous vetting to be accepted as a Syrian refugee,” he said in a written statement. “Voters who know that are far more accepting than those who may not understand the process.”
