Indeed, blowback is real. Every time the US sticks its nose in international affairs, the more likely it will face reprisals from disgruntled geopolitical actors. Those are some of the many pitfalls of interventionist foreign policy measures.
Combine that with a mass migration policy agenda and you have all the makings for a series of attacks being launched against the homeland. Now more than ever, we must stand against the Invade the World/Invite the World agenda. This policy paradigm presents an existential threat to both America’s national security and its demographic character.
