Regarding the Nov. 28 news article “Suspect arrested at clinic; 3 dead”: For the second time in less than two years, a man from North Carolina has been linked to an act of domestic terrorism involving multiple fatalities in another state.
With white American extremists having killed almost twice as many Americans on our soil as radical Islamists have since 9/11, and with the North Carolina connection to such terrorism being so undeniably strong, I reluctantly offer this modest proposal: That governors from other states immediately take measures to prevent North Carolinians from coming across their borders – with special attention given to white males with Christian backgrounds.
Gov. Pat McCrory would no doubt be ready to work with other states on this matter. After all, he just recently erred on the side of caution by announcing he no longer wants Syrian and other Muslim refugees to be resettled in the our state. The governor surely knows that, unlike refugees admitted into the United States, North Carolinians entering other states face no vetting at all, therefore exposing those states to an unacceptable risk of terrorism.
These dangerous times demand that we consider actions that we have never undertaken before.
