The progressive left defies logic when it comes to recognizing the threat posed by sharia law. They're ready to throw out the welcome mat to Muslim refugees who have grown up in a culture dominated by barbaric laws that treat women as chattel and gay men as rooftop offerings. Just as the concepts of liberty and freedom are sewn into the fabric of an American upbringing, so, too, are the concepts of sharia woven into a Middle Eastern or Islamic upbringing.
Glenn and Stu shared some stunning stats on how sharia law is perceived and accepted in Muslim-dominated countries.
"You have to understand . . . these Muslims are coming from a part of the Middle East where they've grown up, understanding that sharia law is a good thing," said Glenn. "So when they come here, they still want sharia law."
Take Irving, Texas, for example, where recently a Muslim tribunal tried to establish sharia law as above and separate from U.S. law.
"No, you don't do that," Glenn said. "You don't have separate laws. You have the Texas state law and the United States law. You don't also have sharia law. Period."
This is why understanding the viewpoint of people overseas --- people Obama and other progressives want to bring to the U.S. as refugees -- is critical to understanding the impact it could have on America.

"Remember when we sat with this imam from here in Texas?" Glenn asked. "He was like, 'Look, everybody understands that if you steal, you cut off somebody's hands.' And we just let him talk. Because he's from a culture that understands, that's just what you do. Well, that's not what we do here."
Glenn went on to explain that's why we cannot bring these people into the United States of America. Unless they're truly coming here to escape and see America as a great land of promise and opportunity, they cannot be allowed to enter.
"If they're coming here and they're like, 'Look, I think America is part of the problem in my country. I don't think ISIS is that bad of a deal. If somebody steals, we should cut their hands off. If my wife commits adultery, I should be able to stone her to death or kill. If the imam says I can do it, I'm going to do it.' You don't bring those people into our country," Glenn said. "Period."
