Jindal: Ban Radical Islamists Like Cold War Communists

By    |   Wednesday, 18 Mar 2015 10:43 PM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says his call to ban radical Islamists from entry into the United States is no different from Cold War rules that banned people who promoted communism.

Jindal earlier this week was asked whether members of the Islamic State (ISIS) or the Muslim Brotherhood should be barred from entry. He answered that people should be banned who use America's freedoms to undermine the freedoms of others.

"So, in other words, we shouldn't tolerate those who want to come and try to impose some variant or some version of sharia law," he said.

That statement drew fire from U.S. Muslim groups who accused Jindal of fear-mongering and trying to boost his expected Republican presidential campaign.

Appearing Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File," Jindal defended his statement.

"We've said you can't come here in years past if you were here to promote communism," he said. "If you're coming here to undermine America's foreign policy. If you're supporting a group that's an enemy of the United States."

Jindal said if America wants an example of what not to do, it should look at Europe.

"We shouldn't be blindly following Europe, where you have second- and third-generation immigrants that don't consider themselves parts of that society," he said. "We want people to be Americans."
