This map was posted on Facebook yesterday, and it’s been the subject of much discussion, in part because in part because — to my knowledge — it hasn’t been updated since 11/16.
As Leftover so eloquently (I’m not being snide here) pointed out in the comments, Montana, for one, is mislabeled. The governor has said he has no intentions of closing the borders, but that is not reflected in the graphic.
My home state of Missouri is probably accurately represented, because while Gov. Jay Nixon says he won’t seek to block Syrian refugees (and how would one do that, anyway), one Missouri legislator (Mike Moon) is calling for a special session (and he has support in this) and he’s swearing to block the “Islamization” of the Show Me States. The cretins. (Hey, dip shit: Is your theology so embattled? Get a grip. Oh, and read a book.)
Gov. Rick Scott, of Florida, is predictably ignorant on this subject, so that state is accurately portrayed. I posted this map after vetting a few of the states, but not — to my disgrace — all of them. Not everything you see on the Interwebs is Grade A Accurate, and I try to vet what I post but this time, I should have been more clear that 1) this map is not being updated and 2) I do not know the source. But as Sharon said on Facebook, I am the proud resident of a proud and loud green state. And, as I said in the original post: I’m told a few of the non-green states have crossed over to green, but I’m not sure which ones.
Up yours, ISIS.
