The Lyrics

I would have thought CML would have beat me to this!
Americans, we don't want to live in fear
Keep them in place, don't admit them here
Seven nations we despise all inundated with terror
So ban 'em, ban 'em!

Mostly Muslim, gotta do what we can
We don't serve Allah, need more Arab Christians
Vetting's gotta be tough, gonna make a stand
So ban 'em, even if liberals get mad!

Just ban 'em, ban 'em, ban 'em, ban 'em
Trump has often repeated
Showin' how ugly will be this fight
The lame stream media vs the Right!

Just ban 'em, ban 'em [4x]

Gotta think like Steve Bannon!

They're out to get us, those bad Jihadi clans
Building bombs like toys, groups of future gunmen
We wanna stay alive, so F-ck the damn Quran
So ban 'em, ban 'em

Listen to pretty Kellyanne!

We have to show them that we're really not scared
Keep them in their place, which is over THERE!
In Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen
So ban 'em, even if liberals get mad!

(Chorus) [x2]

Just ban 'em, ban 'em, ban 'em, ban 'em

Ban 'em, ban 'em, ban 'em, ban 'em
At the airport stop and seize them
AG was fired, gave Trump a fight
Lost her job 'cause he's got the might
And RIGHT... to defend America

(Chorus) [x3]

Just ban 'em, ban 'em
Ban 'em, ban 'em

This nation was not founded on Islam...

Ban 'em, Bannon! This is sarcastic, right? I mean, correct? If so, this is slightly funny. Anyway, please don't explain.

^ Show me your numbers and sources for refugees committing terrorism in the U.S., Jonathan. You're hysterical and talking out of your hat. Vetting has been extremely effective re refugees. I can say glibly that Trump's E.O. ban resulted in the recruitment of 10,000 ISIS fighters, formerly comrades-in-arms with U.S. forces and translators and intel sources for them. Prove me wrong.

Besides, the terrorism in Europe had nothing to do with those refugees. In fact that was the result of not letting enough of them in.

Dude, you don't get it. All it takes is a few baddies to kill hundreds and your facts aren't completely true either. Interpol and European intelligence estimate hundreds of terror cells in Europe from many of the seven nations listed by Trump. And what of the European mass rapes committed by the refugees, the violence, the increase in crime? Have you even considered the violation of communities that don't want these people? Several states here in America don't want them either. We are nation of legal immigrant's historically. Who says we have to take in everyone from everywhere? The Syrians should fight their own civil war. Same for Central America. But no, Mexico allows them to pass right on through to our southern border to enter illegally. The Mexican Army provides directions to water stations and entry points. Did you know that, asswipe? Ask the Border Patrol and the citizens on the border. You Sir, are an ignoramus.

^ For "@JTF who should STFU," this is an excerpt from The Atlantic, Jan. 30, 2017:
The libertarian Cato Institute, has found that nationals of the seven countries singled out by Trump have killed zero people in terrorist attacks on U.S. soil between 1975 and 2015.


Six Iranians, six Sudanese, two Somalis, two Iraqis, and one Yemeni have been convicted of attempting or executing terrorist attacks on U.S. soil during that 40-year time period. Zero Libyans and zero Syrians have been convicted of doing the same. “Foreign-born terrorism is a hazard,” the Cato researcher argues, “but it is manageable given the huge economic benefits of immigration and the small costs of terrorism.”
As for refugees, according to Cato, Trump’s action “is a response to a phantom menace.” Over the last four decades, 20 out of 3.25 million refugees welcomed to the United States have been convicted of attempting or committing terrorism on U.S. soil, and only three Americans have been killed in attacks committed by refugees—all by Cuban refugees in the 1970s.
Zero Americans have been killed by Syrian refugees in a terrorist attack in the United States.
No, we don't have to take in everyone from everywhere, but we have pledged protection to the world's tired and poor huddled masses yearning to breathe free, its wretched refuse and its homeless and tempest-tossed. Ms. Lazurus simply forgot to write, "the extremely vetted."
Btw, Emma should have excluded the foul-mouthed, intolerant, cowardly scum of the Earth, to account for wretched refuse like you!
