The USA supreme court did NOT just uphold "Trump's Arab and Muslim ban"
By Denis Rancourt
Statements to the effect that the USA supreme court just upheld "Trump's Arab and Muslim ban" are FAKE NEWS for fabricated outrage and to obfuscate reality.
Read the court's decision: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/17pdf/17-965_h315.pdf
The executive order that was before the court was not an "Arab and Muslim ban". It is a detailed policy instrument meant to ban, limit, punish, propagandize against and coerce USA geopolitical enemies (Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, Yemen...) while not affecting the USA ability to co-opt those nationals or to collaborate with the opponents of the governments of those countries.
Read it. It could not be more clear. It is a USA policy, not a Trump policy. It is not primarily racist. It is primarily colonial and anti-international-sovereignty.
Sarcastically, one could say that the USA has "the right to defend itself against the reactions of its victims".
