This whole debate about the border wall, caravans, and illegal immigration in general, is currently about as dumb as I can remember over the last 28 years.
We have Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi calling a border wall, “immoral,” when her estate in Napa County California is surrounded by a wall. Laura Loomer, an activist who had previously chained herself to Twitter’s office in New York, jumped that wall with some supposed illegal aliens from Guatemala, put up a tent and unfurled a banner with the pictures of Americans who had been killed by illegal aliens. Three of her accomplices were wearing “yellow jackets,” similar to what the protestors in France have been wearing. If her partners were, in fact, illegal aliens, they had little to fear. It is unlikely they would have been turned over to authorities on Pelosi’s property. Also it is alleged that Pelosi has had illegal alien workers in her vineyards.
Family members who lost loved ones to illegal aliens tried to have a meeting with Pelosi at her office, but she refused.
Then we have Congresswoman Debbie Schultz, and many others, claiming the border crisis is “manufactured.”
It’s manufactured Congresswomen, for sure. It is manufactured by cartels and financed by those who want massive illegal immigration into our country for a variety of reasons: cheap labor, future voters, destabilizing our country and weakening our culture, terrorism … it’s a long list.
The website for Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is interesting. When you search “border,” you get a list of search results, the most recent being a December 17th warning that your Christmas tree might contain the “spotted lanternfly.” Nothing has been listed for almost three months about the southern border.
CNN reporter Jim Acosta alleging that McAllen, Texas, was safe and that there was “no border crisis,” is recorded standing in front of a border fence with the Rio Grande River just beyond. The safety he was enjoying was a direct result of the fence and the river. Some have commented that he had unknowingly just made a commercial about the effectiveness of walls and fences.
The most worrisome thing is not that these elected officials and media types believe some of the incredibly naïve, some stupid, comments they make about border security overall. Some may believe what they are saying. The concern we should all have is that they think their constituencies and audiences will believe the lies and nonsense they spew. And if many do believe them, therein lies the real threat to our country and culture.
So, we can laugh at some of this craziness, but let’s also keep in mind what Groucho Marx said, “Humor is reason gone mad.”
Watch out for the madness.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
