The actions of so-called Sanctuary Cities, Sanctuary Counties, sanctuary college campuses, etc. have exceeded what mature Americans could expect of anti-American, anti-Western Civilization sanctimony. Besides supporting law breaking illegal aliens (and yes, illegal aliens are law breakers) one Sanctuary City, San Francisco, is putting everyone in the country at risk by now refusing to work with the F.B.I.’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). JTTF is credited with preventing 93 radical Islamist terrorist attacks since the 9/11 attacks.
This childish temper tantrum by the San Francisco city government would have been unthinkable a generation ago, and provides a good example of the pathetic loss of common sense, morality, or any vestige of public service they may have once had.
It recalls a quote by Thomas De Quincey from the early 19th century.
If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he next comes to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination.
The point De Quincey was making is that if you engage in the worst of human behavior, murder, anything else is easier to engage in. After all, after murdering someone, why would someone have any moral qualms about robbing?
The list of illegal alien crimes has been growing exponentially for years and many jurisdictions have attempted to hide the crimes and victims from public view. President Trump’s creation of V.O.I.C.E. within the Department of Homeland Security, will chronicle the crimes of illegal aliens and their victims and is long overdue.
San Francisco, of all places, has experienced the worst of illegal alien crimes with gang killings and murders of innocent citizens.
San Francisco’s refusal to help the JTTF seek out terrorists to prevent attacks on innocent Americans brings about a paraphrase of De Quincey:
If once a city provides sanctuary protection for foreign terrorists, they will also protect illegal alien murders. And from there, illegal alien drug dealers and illegal alien welfare recipients and illegal alien workers.
This outrageous refusal by San Francisco to enforce federal law and support our anti-terror efforts should result in all federal money being cut off, immediately.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
