Martin O’Malley

BALTIMORE, MD – In response to the wave of Republican governors refusing to accept Syrian refugees, Governor O’Malley released the following statement:

“The best way to respond to the despicable attacks in Paris is to defeat ISIL and be a moral leader of nations. That means not only working in smarter and more collaborative ways with our allies and partners to eliminate the terrorist threat, but also staying true to our values.

“Scapegoating an entire religious community and rejecting those fleeing ISIL’s terrorism and persecution is what the terrorists want. We need to step up and act like Americans, in accordance with our principles. There are women and children dying and fleeing the same sort of carnage that was unleashed on the people of France. This is a time for American leadership, not a time for us to cower.

“Keeping America safe and staying true to who we are as a people is not a zero-sum choice. Real leaders don’t throw our values to the wind in the face of fear.”

    Here’s your proof LVS. Nutjobs like you and Maybe are the real danger to our society. The ammosexual gun worshippers who feel they have somehow lost “their America” and need to “take it back” have killed more people than terrorists since 9/11

        I see my comment was once again flagged for removal. So you’re saying Time magazine is too liberal of a news source for you? Facts are facts.

          @U R a Racist-It wasn’t me that deleted it. I am enjoying your childish, infantile attempts at lying. Grow up, grow a pair and get a life. Liars like you go to hell and there will not be any virgins waiting for you there.

    The main terrorist threat in the United States is not from violent Muslim extremists, but from right-wing extremists.
    Right-wing terrorists twice as likely to kill Americans than Muslim jihadists are
    Nearly twice as many Americans have been killed by right-wing extremists since 9/11 as have died at the hands of radical Muslims on US soil.
    There have also been nearly three times as many deadly right-wing attacks as jihadist ones.

      Bull Crap-Prove it. Dont forget the thousand killed on 911 or theMuslim that killed the servicemen or all the others. Don’t forget the marathon either. When they come and they will my one and only hope is that they get you traitors first. As for me, they will have one hell of a fight on their hands.

    I’ve been leaning Independent conservative for a while now, but this puts me over the edge. I seriously think I’m voting for a Republican this election season for the first time in my life. The Dummycrats are very wrong on this idea of kissing Islam’s ass. Islam when it reaches critical mass is DANGEROUS to the freedom loving public.

    O’Malley was the worse mayor Baltimore ever had and was also the worse governor Maryland ever had. Who the hell is he to tell anyone anything. The Democrats are sure sucking wind with the three clowns they have running. The one decent one “Web” backed out and I kind of liked him. Of course they couldn’t have anyone who wasn’t a liar.
