"We The People Will Fund The Wall"


                Brian Kolfage started a GoFundMe campaign called “We the People Will Fund the Wall.” As of this writing over 20 million dollars has been raised-- from over 350,000 donors—to help fund a wall on the southern border of the United States. That is a little less than $60 per donation. It is “We the People,” not George Soros-level coercion by cash.
                Kolfage’s endeavor spurred Charlotte Clymer, a trans “woman” and leftist activist, to launch a countervailing GoFundMe campaign titled “Ladders to Get Over Trump’s Wall.” Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, I guess, at least according to Newton. However, “her” effort to aid and abet criminals trying to enter the U.S., involving as it does the material help of many others, could well be considered a criminal conspiracy under 18 U.S. Code §371, which refers, in part, to “two or more persons” conspiring to “commit any offense against the United States.”
                But what the hell, no one cares. If Ms. Clymer and Mr. Kolfage had been around a few decades earlier, the former might be raising money to help build the Berlin Wall, while the latter would be trying to help those enslaved by Marxism-Socialism get over, under or through it.
                Clymer is obviously not a big fan of the rule of law. “She” is unlikely to be a big fan of Natural Law, either.
                Governments’ only legitimate purpose is to provide for the common defense, ensure domestic tranquility, and promote the general welfare… of its citizens. Leftists don’t like any of these endeavors, but do believe government should do almost everything else.
                Those such as Clymer don’t want a wall on our border. They want open borders. Moreover, they want to abolish I.C.E. They want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens and then force them to pay for various services for illegal aliens. They don’t much care for the police, often deriding them and calling for them to stay away from certain venues.
                Why stop there, leftists? Let’s abolish fire departments, too. And get rid of first responders, EMTs and ambulances. Hell, let’s also do away with life-guards while we’re at it.
                The result of all this insanity will be utter chaos. At that point, no GoFundMe page will be able to help any of us.

Bernie Sanders' Campaign Workers Demand $15 An Hour


                “Do as I say, not as I do.”

                That appears to be the message Bernie Sanders, the wizened old commie, has given his own campaign workers. That is not atypical of leftists. In fact, it is closer to a modus operandi.
                In an amusing irony, the Washington Post reports that some members of Sanders’ campaign team have been lobbying to raise their wages so that they can make the same $15 hourly wage rate that the Vermont Senator has so frequently and fervently called for. The Post obtained a draft of a letter the campaign’s union intended to send to Sanders’ campaign manager, Faiz Shakir. The letter stated that the workers “cannot be expected to build the largest grassroots organizing program in American history while making poverty wages. Given our campaign's commitment to fighting for a living wage of at least $15.00 an hour, we believe it is only fair that the campaign would carry through this commitment to its own field team." It added: "Many field staffers are barely managing to survive financially, which is severely impacting our team's productivity and morale. Some field organizers have already left the campaign as a result.” The letter notes that since field organizers are working a minimum of 60 hours a week, their average hourly pay equates to only $13 an hour. Negotiations between the union and Shakir are apparently taking place.
                Reports of the negotiations came after the House of Representatives passed a bill to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, prompting Sanders to take to Twitter to praise the House for its action.
                Senator Sanders seems to be living in a glass House at the moment.
                                                        **************************
                (Update: it appears Sanders has decided to grant his campaign workers their $15 an hour request by cutting the number of hours they work).

Pride! Night At The Zoo


                It’s a good bet that when God told Noah to gather up the animals-- two by two-- and take them on the Ark, He was hoping that one of each kind would be a male and the other a female. Otherwise, the whole endeavor would likely have been for naught. None-the-less, the LGBTQIIA+ community would not allow God to get away with this kind of heteronormative, cis-gendered command today. Gayness is celebrated everywhere, all the time. And woe to anyone who isn’t “down” with that.                 
                Even in the animal kingdom. Case in point: The ZSL London Zoo gave itself a thorough “Pride makeover” for its special July 5th “Zoo Night” touting same-sex animal pairings…and all things gay. The zoo issued a press release stating: “On top of Zoo Nights’ packed schedule of activities, visitors will be able to learn about gender and mating in the animal kingdom at a Pride-themed talk, where they’ll discover just how common same-sex pairings are – from penguins and pandas to goats and giraffes.” The release also invited attendees to “score a hole-in-one at the Zoo’s new mini-golf course.” (I bet some of the gay animal couples would also like to score a hole-in-one. Just sayin’).
                 The zoo proudly claims it’s the home of a gay penguin “couple” named Ronnie and Reggie. It even designed a special banner for “Penguin Beach”—home of the allegedly queer penguin pair—in advance of the July 5 extravaganza. The banner read in part: “Next week’s #ZSLZooNights will be getting a #Pride makeover and our #penguins ae joining in on the celebrations! Learn more about our Pride-themed activities at the zoo & how you can join in: https://t.co/G62kM4oKGA.  #PrideInLondon #ZooLife@PrideInLondon  pic.twitter.com/zIFBFurnuR—ZSL London Zoo.” I don’t want to know how I “can join in.” There is another, smaller banner in the penguins’ habitat that aggressively states: “Some penguins are gay. Get over it.” Note to the ZSL zoo: “I am not. Get over it.” And I don’t advertise how proud I am to be heterosexual. Or spray-paint “Cis Power!” across progressive message boards and banners. Or demand cities grant my kind carte blanche for parade routes. Etc.
                 The zoo claims Ronnie and Reggie first got together in 2014 and adopted an abandoned egg a year later, sharing parenting duties until the chick left the nest. The zoo’s website states that the bond between the two literal lovebirds “remains as strong as ever” and notes that they are “often found snuggled up in their next box together.” What’s more, the zoo says there are other same-sex couples among its 91 other penguin residents.                

                  I bet there are lesbian lynx, gay gophers, bisexual bunnies, transgender turtles and questioning koalas, too. And, it’s no wonder a group of lions is called a PRIDE! What inspirational thoughts!                 
                  Alas, The Telegraph reported on a new study, published in the journal Ethology, that found homosexual behavior in the animal kingdom only amounts to “same sex flirting” until the individuals find a mate. The study, conducted by France’s Centre for Functional and Evolutionary Ecology, found that high levels of testosterone and a relative lack of females in the colony drives “lonely” males into simulated mating displays. One of the study’s authors, Professor F. Stephen Dobson, said that the number of same sex penguin pairs was actually lower than expected. He noted that, when the colony was studied over time, all the “gay” penguins chose a heterosexual partner.    
            
                  What a downer. 

                  Oh well. We shall overcome.

Oreo Cookie Pronoun Packs


                Oreo, the iconic cookie brand, recently partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) to give away “pronoun packs,” in celebration of those who identify as transgender, at PrideFest/WorldPride in New York City. Oreo took to Twitter to exclaim, “We’re proud to celebrate inclusivity for all gender identities and expressions,” adding that it was “encouraging everybody to share their pronouns with pride today and every day.” Oreo also shared a photograph of the packaging, which featured gender symbols and the message, “Share your pronouns with pride.” The company gave away Oreo-like pins at the event urging people to “Ask me my pronouns.”
                Oreo representatives reinforced the message via a Facebook post saying: “We are proud to support the LGBTQIA+ community, celebrate all forms of identity and encourage inclusivity at WorldPride 2019 and beyond. Oreo is proud to partner with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) for this activation and will be making a donation to NCTE to further a shared commitment to promote inclusivity, empathy and opportunity for everyone.”
                The pronoun packs consisted of three different sets of cookies, each with pronouns written on the cookies themselves. One set came with “she/her” on the cookies, one with “he/him,” and an extra-special one with “they/them.” These new super-woke biscuits came in pink, blue and purple packaging, mimicking the transgender flag. Some folks were so excited about the pronoun packs, they queried Nabisco (Oreo’s parent company) as to where they could be purchased. Alas, the company had to inform them that the remarkably inclusive baked goods were only available at PrideFest, though it did point out that it would “continue to offer new products that respond to the preferences of our customers.” I can’t wait for the “polyamory pack” and the “bestiality bag” to come out!
                Some reactionary sticks-in-the-mud weren’t supportive of Oreo’s fantastically virtue-signaling marketing campaign. One tweeted: “Just stick with making cookies! Good grief! Not everything has to have a message!” (Well, actually, that’s not true anymore). Another remarked: “Can we have some for schizophrenia and depression? Since we’re catering to mental health issues now.” Yet another noted: “Fun fact: Archaeologists can only determine whether skeletal remains are male or female.”
                And, much like Oreos, that is black and white. Sorry, progressives, that’s just how the cookie crumbles.

Mascot Madness


                Universities across the ever-fruitier plain are changing their team names and mascots in a doomed attempt to avoid offending those “wokest” of progressives who are steadfastly determined to be offended by virtually everything. Native American mascots have been disappearing faster than moderates in the Democratic Party. The North Dakota “Fighting Sioux” became the North Dakota “Fighting Hawks,” for example. The latter nickname just doesn’t sound right, doesn’t convey the same feel. Stanford morphed from the “Indians” to the “Cardinal.” Miami University went from the “Redskins” to the “Redhawks.” (Why is it Hawks seem to replace Indians)? Wright State used to be represented by “Rowdy Raider,” a red-bearded Viking. The pillaging and plundering Norseman has been replaced by a wolf, who, apparently, is not as intimidating or macho. More recently, students at George Washington University have seen to the demise of that school’s mascot, “George the Colonial.” Apparently, the obvious depiction of the great Revolutionary War general, first president and Father of His Country was deemed insufficiently inclusive and possibly hurtful to African-Americans. It’s just a matter of time before the university itself is fundamentally transformed from George Washington University to “Barack Obama University.”
                Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips traveled to the University of Miami to see just how far students are willing to take the mascot reform movement. Phillips carried a petition and a letter to the school’s administrators to the campus. The letter outlined his deep concern that the college teams’ nickname, (the) “Hurricanes,” could be scary and offensive to some students. When he asked students to support his petition to do away with the name, many jumped at the chance.
                When asked to sign the petition, one student remarked: “It’s not a huge deal, but it’s something, and it’ll make a difference.” In what? One thanked Phillips and said, “I totally get this. I think it’s super respectful.” And one stated, “Awesome! Good for you.” Another opined, “There’s gonna be people who have PTSD and this could f—k them up.” Say what? How? (“Hurricanes” could eff them up-- or getting rid of “Hurricanes” could eff them up)? Yet another simply exclaimed: “F—k yeah!”

Stick it to the man! Or something.

I did some research, as I am wont to do, and uncovered other potentially offensive mascots and/or team names. If we are to ban “Hurricanes,” we must obviously ban “Cyclones,” too. As in the Iowa State Cyclones. The university of Mississippi is referred to as “Ole Miss.” This is problematic enough without even considering the nickname “Rebels.” As in those who fought for the Confederacy. The school should immediately be forced to change its name to the “Resistance,” in honor of those bravely fighting back against President Donald Trump and his strong-armed attempts to make America Great Again. Alabama should henceforth be prevented from calling itself the “Crimson Tide,” no matter how many national championships it can claim. The red tide found off the state’s Gulf shores is a tragic reminder of man’s blatant disregard for the planet’s fragile ecosystems, not something of which to be proud. The University of Virginia’s use of the nickname “Cavaliers” is another egregious example of the white, Christian, ableist patriarchy reigning roughshod over the marginalized. Look up “Cavaliers” in any dictionary and you will find these definitions: 1) “supporters of King Charles I in the English Civil War.” 2) “Man of arms.” 3) “Not considering other people’s feelings or safety.” See what I mean?
The University of Georgia should rid itself of its bulldog mascot in favor of a bulldyke mascot, a moniker much better suited to the times. And, can anyone tell me why Notre Dame is still allowed to call its sports teams (and players) the “Fighting Irish?” After all, the “Fighting Sioux” was forcibly retired. Would anyone countenance, say, the “Fighting Germans” or the “Fighting Iranians?”
On the other hand, at least one school has a name befitting the times, a name that speaks to Millennial Humanists: The University of Southern California Trojans. Thank you, USC! The nickname Trojans is an important reminder that one should always wear protection. Particularly when playing the Beavers of Oregon State, as they do nearly every year, and especially when pushing deep into Beaver territory.
But I digress.
What we really need to see is a university completely throwing off the shackles of tradition and conformity. There is no law stipulating that a school’s sports teams must be named after a fierce animal or a group of humans known for their martial spirit. Why not the Pittsburgh Pangenders, the Iowa Intersectionalists, the Minnesota Golden Gayboys, the Alabama Crimson PRIDE!,  or the California Queer?

Boston Refuses To Fly Christian Flag


                 The city of Boston, the home of Faneuil Hall, Bunker Hill, Paul Revere, and the U.S.S. Constitution, is being sued for religious discrimination for refusing to fly a Christian flag—for one hour-- as part of Constitution Day observances on September 17th, 2017. The director of Camp Constitution, Hal Shurtleff, had asked the city to fly the inter-denominational symbol for 60 minutes to mark the 230th anniversary of the ratification of the Constitution of the United States of America, the preeminent document in the history of world governance. The modern-day Beantown Bureaucracy flatly refused, saying no non-secular flags could be flown, so Shurtleff recently filed a federal lawsuit, claiming the city’s act was unconstitutional, and in contravention to the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause. The event was to feature pastors encouraging racial reconciliation and to celebrate freedom and the Christian heritage of the United States, culminating in the presentation of the “Christian” flag. It was cancelled after the city rejected the request to fly the flag for 1/24th of one day.
                Matthew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, a religious freedom law firm representing Shurtleff, issued a statement saying: “Censoring religious viewpoints in a public forum where secular viewpoints are permitted violates the First Amendment. Boston city officials may not ban the Christian flag as part of a privately sponsored event when they allow any other flag by numerous private organizations. It’s time for the court to stop the city’s unconstitutional censorship.” Quite.
                Boston has permitted almost every other flag in existence—284 at last count…literally-- to be proudly raised on its city hall flagpoles. The suit claims that the Turkish flag—sporting the Islamic star and crescent—has flown from city hall flagpoles on 13 separate occasions just since 2005. The city flew the Chinese Communist flag to commemorate the anniversary of the Chinese Communist revolution. It has allowed the Cuban flag to grace its flagpoles. LGBTQ and transgender flags have also been raised above city property, flapping gaily in the Beantown breeze, without legal challenge. But a Christian flag? Well, that’s beyond the pale.
                In today’s perverted, inverted America, freak flags fly high. Red communist flags are fine, too. But Christian flags? They trigger the raising of a red flag of a different sort, one not sanctioned by coastal elite “public servants.” The merest hint of the nation’s Christian heritage sends Deep State Swamp Creatures into paroxysms of revulsion, hatred and anger.
                Boston was once the scene of a revolution that inspired the world. It is now a sad reminder of our…devolution.
    It is almost enough to make one wave a white flag in surrender. But we owe it to ourselves and those yet to come to find the spirit, courage and character that the founders possessed. We must shake off our malaise-- and overweening desire to be seen as unjudgementally hyper-tolerant-- and do all in our power to usher in a new birth of freedom. With liberty and justice for all. Including Christians.

U.S. Army War College Disinvites Speaker Critical Of Islam


                 The United States Army War College recently disinvited Raymond Ibrahim, a scholar and clear-eyed observer of Islam, from a speaking event at the Pennsylvania-based school that trains senior military officers and civilians. A spokesperson for the school claims the event is just postponed while officials attempt to locate another speaker who would “counterbalance” Ibrahim’s talk, according to The College Fix. The decision to pull the rug out from under Ibrahim, a Coptic Christian from Egypt whose family has faced persecution, was made after the Center on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) strongly urged the college to do so. Ibrahim was scheduled to give a lecture on June 19th, on themes from his latest book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War Between Islam and the West.
                 “CAIR,” an absurdly offensive acronym to anyone aware of its actions, is an Islamist organization that has long been linked to terrorist activities. Several U.S. allies consider it a “terrorist organization” in its own right and some of its board members and staff have been accused of terrorism. The U.S. considers CAIR an “unindicted co-conspirator and/or joint venturer” with Hamas. CAIR almost never denounces the sponsors of Hamas and Hezbollah, or the two terrorist groups themselves.
                 The public affairs director of the National Association of Scholars, Glenn Ricketts, told The College Fix via email: “For me, the disinvitation illustrates the depth to which political correctness and the outrage/grievance industry have saturated American educational and corporate institutions, with no apparent thought of the injustice done, the negative influence on the morale of the institution or, in this case, to the training of future defenders and military strategists. Good PR in the short term seems to me the paramount consideration.” No doubt. He added: “NAS will be following this closely, and we certainly hope that the Army War College will reconsider this monumentally bad decision. Perhaps it will recall that its mission is to train warriors, not social activists.” Good luck with that wish, Glenn.
                 If the U.S. military is so willing to lay down and capitulate to a single foreign-focused and supported entity such as CAIR, the end is indeed nigh. If politically correct bullshit and lies can induce it to change its plans and agenda, the proverbial jig is up. If the United States Army War College ceases fighting for American values such as free speech, who will?
                 Imagine if the U.S. Army War College, founded in 1901, had disinvited a speaker critical of Germany’s actions in the lead up to World War II…because of pressure from the Nazis or the Waffen SS. Imagine if the Air Force Academy disinvited a speaker who wished to give a lecture on the Cold War machinations of the Soviet Union due to pressure from the KGB. Or if the Naval Academy was persuaded not to allow a speech by an expert on North Vietnam at the behest of the Viet Cong. What if speeches by Samuel Adams, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, et. al., had been nixed in Colonial times because the British didn’t want to hear them?
The War College’s decision was insane. You can’t win a real war if you won’t even fight a cultural one.

Pride In America Tanks As Gay PRIDE! Soars


                The percentage of Americans who say they are “extremely” proud of their country is the lowest on record…since Gallup’s first measurement in 2001. Last year, 47% of U.S. adults surveyed said they were extremely proud to be an American. This year that figure dropped to 45%. The number has been steadily dropping in recent years, and this year’s reading, from a Gallup poll conducted June 3rd thru 16th, is the lowest ever. The highest percentages of those surveyed saying they were extremely proud to be an American, 69% and 70%, came in the two years following the 9/11 terrorist attacks when the public rallied around the government and the flag.
                Democrats, whose pride in the United States has historically been lower than Republicans, have driven the recent decline in patriotism. Only 22% of Democrats polled said they were extremely proud of America, the lowest such result ever, and just half as many as in the months prior to Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory. Democrat’s pride in their nation fluctuates much more than does Republican’s, increasing when one of their own is in office, and decreasing dramatically when a member of the opposing party occupies the Oval Office. By contrast, Republican’s pride in their country never fell below 68%, even when Barack Hussein Obama was president. As might be expected, Independents fell between those in the two major parties in this survey, with 41% saying they were extremely proud to be Americans.
                A mere 32% of all those polled admitted to being very proud of America’s political system, while only 37% felt likewise about its healthcare and welfare programs. Yet 85% purported to be proud of American culture and arts, a clear sign to me that most people perceive things ass-backwards while looking thru the wrong end of a telescope.
                Various subgroups of the Democratic constituency expressed even lower levels of pride in the U.S. than their peers…women, progressives, and younger adults among them.
                The precipitous decline in American patriotism is, of course, a direct result of a number of factors. Among them are the virtually total control progressives and leftists have on American Academia, mainstream media, the “entertainment” industry, mainline churches, the giant social media and tech companies, and corporate boardrooms in general, among other entities.
                There exists another factor, as well. Progressives have been largely successful in their insistence that identity politics must take precedence over assimilation and the “melting pot,” particularly with regard to the LGBTQIA+ community. These groups are now so proud—so extremely PROUD!—so damn incredibly PROUD!—of their own particular proclivities and perversions, that they have no more room left to be proud to be an American…or anything else.

Miley Cyrus Won't Procreate Because Of Global Warming


                Miley Cyrus recently released a video for her new feminist “fight song,” called “Mother’s Daughter,” in which she struts around in a vagina catsuit and sings “don’t f*ck with my freedom.” (The suit makes her look like nothing so much as a large, red Penis Flytrap). The pop star and Planned Parenthood propagandist also recently announced that she won’t reproduce due to global warming.
                A grateful world breathed a sigh of relief.
                The ditzy diva said of the Earth: “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-shit planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.” Say what? So, you’re not “handing down” this “piece-of-shit” planet to your child? Well, good for you, but Africans, Middle-Easterners, South Americans and Asians are handing this Hell-hole down to their children like their lives depended on it. And, Miley, there are fish in the water. All over the world. Just not in your chlorinated, vagina-shaped pool in Franklin, Tennessee, you ignorant skank.
Then the oddball offspring of Billy Ray Cyrus and Letitia Finley decided the Earth identifies as female, stating: “When she’s angry, don’t f*ck with her. That’s the way that I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry.” (Maybe Mother Earth shouldn’t have reproduced so effectively all these years. Maybe she wouldn’t be so tired now if she had used protection). Ms. Cyrus added, “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women.” Really? Giving her subsidized abortions? Taking her to Macey’s to go shopping? Plying her with alcohol? Telling her that her butt doesn’t look too big? 
Cyrus claims that most Millennials feel the same way she does about (not) having babies. “We don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it,” she said. I picture her staring at the Earth and bellowing, “You can’t handle my youth!” ala Jack Nicholson in “A Few Good Men.” (A movie title which probably wouldn’t be allowed today).
The erstwhile Hannah Montana cast member has expounded on her sexuality and her marriage to actor Liam Hemsworth in recent days, as well. She noted: “I like the way being sexual makes me feel, but I’m never performing for men. They shouldn’t compliment themselves to think that the decisions I’m making in my career would have anything to do with them getting pleasure.” She’s an American treasure, isn’t she?
Cyrus admitted, “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married.” (It certainly baffles me). She explained: “But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a f*cking apron cooking dinner?”
Probably not.
She added: “I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still f*cking good, and I know that.”
 Is she comparing women’s bodies to pig meat? Oh well, leftists aren’t known for their intellect.
Maybe Billy Ray and Letitia should’ve visited Planned Parenthood before having Miley. Before she f*cked with their freedom.

Had they done so, there wouldn’t have been a “Mother’s Daughter.”

California Courts Illegal Aliens


            California has approved a new budget expanding Medi-Cal coverage to illegal immigrants up to the age of 26. This will cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars, even without factoring in the costs created by the obvious incentive the program will create for illegals to move to California. Moreover, the formerly Golden State is bringing back the individual mandate, in part to fund the Medi-Cal expansion for non-residents of California.
This means that residents of the state who don’t want to-- or need to—buy health insurance, as well as those who can’t afford it, will have their money confiscated by the government to provide health care to illegal aliens. This is just another mind-boggling middle finger Democrats have thrust in the face of actual American citizens.
Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (I wrote that with a straight face!) made a campaign stop in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, recently, where he glad-handed asylum-seekers from Central America and listened to them bitch about U.S. immigration policies. The ex-Texas congressman participated in a sit-down with people housed in a migrant shelter and listened attentively as they complained about being denied entry into the U.S. until their asylum claims have been processed. He took to Facebook following the meeting, posting the stories of a few of those with whom he met. According to the Associated Press, O’Rourke said via livestream video, “We hope, by sharing these stories, that the conscience of our country is awoken right now, and the need to change the policies that we have in place becomes apparent.” He added, “We must end the Remain in Mexico policy, end metering, end family separation, and end the detention of those who pose absolutely no threat. But we must go far beyond that and fix the entire system.”
Illegal immigrants certainly pose absolutely no threat to progressives’ hold on power, but, no matter how well-intentioned they might be, they do pose an existential long-term threat to the nation, particularly if existing citizens have to pay for their health care, etc.  This was the second time O’Rourke has met with migrants in Ciudad Juarez. He went there in December, prior to announcing his candidacy for president. During that visit, he told a group of Guatemalans, “We’re here to understand your story and to see how we can help you seek asylum in our country.”
Where is O’Rourke going to “campaign” next, Honduras? Somalia? There are many places in America that he hasn’t visited, even once. This is yet another example of the disdain Democrats have for the citizens of their own country, especially those denizens of the Heartland that dare to differ with their “progressive” policy prescriptions and proscriptions. (As was O’Rourke’s choice of the Spanish language to answer a question posed to him during the recent democratic debates).
If today’s crop of Democrats have their way, virtually anyone and everyone in the world would be encouraged to circumvent the law and migrate to America. “Come for the free health care, stay for the income redistribution!” That is, self-evidently, a recipe for utter collapse.
O’Rourke and his fellow presidential candidates believe in the “right” to kill our unborn citizens. They dismiss those with whom they disagree as racists, bigots and xenophobes. All while luring illegal aliens across the border with our tax money. And they have the nerve to fret about our consciences?!
I propose a new trade agreement with Mexico: the U.S. would give them Beto O’Rourke and Mexico would give the U.S. a burro. That would be a “fair trade.” One ass for another.
