We told you so.
While the Nationalist Front was warning the people of Middle Tennessee last weekend about the dangers posed by Third World immigration and refugee resettlement, Sayfullo Saipov was busy plotting to unleash his terrorist attack on behalf of ISIS in New York City:
“Sayfullo Saipov’s arrival in the United States in 2010 began unceremoniously in Ohio.
“My dad introduced him as, ‘He’s new to the United States, and he’s going to stay with us,’ ” said Bekhzod Abdusamatov, 22.
Mr. Saipov, the suspect in the terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan that killed eight people on Tuesday, arrived from Tashkent — the Uzbek capital and its largest city — knowing little English, Mr. Abdusamatov said.
He spent those early days in the United States looking for a job and trying to improve his English, Mr. Abdusamatov said. But he was also a late sleeper.
At one point, Mr. Saipov made his way to Fort Myers, Fla., where he met a fellow Uzbek immigrant, Kobiljon Matkarov, 37. Mr. Saipov was working as a truck driver at the time. …”
He was brought here through the “diversity lottery”:
“At a Cabinet meeting later, Trump said he would work with Congress to end the visa program.
“I am today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program. I am going to ask Congress to immediately…get rid of this program,” said the president, who called the suspect an “animal.” “Diversity lottery — sounds nice, it’s not nice. It’s not good. It hasn’t been good.”
Trump continued, “We want people that are going to help our country, we want people that are going to keep our country safe. We don’t want lotteries where the wrong people are in the lotteries and guess what? Who are the suckers that get those people? We want a merit-based system.”
A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security later confirmed the suspect in the attack, a 29-year-old Uzbek immigrant named Sayfullo Saipov, had been admitted to the U.S. “upon presentation of a passport with a valid diversity immigrant visa to U.S. Customs and Border Protection in 2010.” …”
When I first heard about the terrorist attack in Manhattan, I thought of the reporters I had talked to this weekend in Tennessee. Were they safe? Were they reconsidering what the Nationalist Front had to say in Shelbyville? Are they willing to admit now this is a problem?
Then I thought about this scene in Murfreesboro:

Sayfullo Saipov could have easily driven his Home Depot truck into that crowd of Murfreesboro Loves counterprotesters standing to greet us on the sidewalk. It would have been far more devastating too than the death toll in New York City. Those people felt safe enough to stand out there on that sidewalk because they knew that we would never do something like that to them.
Apparently, this terrorist has been bouncing around the United States since arriving in Ohio in 2010. He has lived in Ohio, Florida and New Jersey. He was once arrested in Missouri. How many people like Sayfullo Saipov, Emanuel Samson or Mohammad Abdulazeez have we let into this country because of our lax immigration laws? What kind of terrorist attacks are they planning?
Why would anyone want this in Middle Tennessee? This is a known problem and standing on a sidewalk to virtue signal at us with a “Murfreesboro Loves” banner isn’t going to make it go away.
