Donald Trump, Jr. went on Twitter recently and compared Syrian refugees to Skittles, stating that if three of them were poison, would we take the entire bag?

First of all, Europe has accepted thousands of Syrian refugees. Not one refugee has committed any type of terrorist act. These are not terrorists; they are people just like you and me, except they are literally running for their lives.

I have come up with a simple solution for these people to come to America. Let the Syrian refugees in, and replace them with the people who disrespect the flag and refuse to stand for the National Anthem.

I wonder how long it would take for those who refuse to respect the symbols of the United States to be begging to be allowed back into the United States after spending time in Syria. Not long, I am sure of it.
