Amnesty International Issues Warning to Travelers Visiting the United States

If you believe the press, America is full of white nationalist Nazi xenophobes who hate foreigners and want them to stay away. And if you believe that, then you have to admit that Amnesty International just gave all those bad people exactly what they want.

I haven’t thought about Amnesty International since Bono finally went away, but fortunately for all of us, they’ve still got a Twitter account:

This is my favorite part:

“Depending on the traveler’s gender identity, race, country of origin, ethnic background, or sexual orientation, they may be at higher risk of being targeted with gun violence, and should plan accordingly.”

Did Richard Spencer write this? It sounds like white-nationalist fanfic.

Maybe instead of building a wall, we could just post up these warnings all along the border with Mexico. America sounds like a really dangerous place. Why would anyone want to come here anyway?

I don’t remember AI ever issuing a “travel warning” for any other country. That must mean it’s more dangerous to visit the U.S. than places like Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria, South Sudan, Yemen, Iraq, etc.

Okay. Go visit those other places instead. Don’t come here. We’ll just keep being the best country in the world without you. Your loss.
