Mayors of “sanctuary cities” have blood on their hands. By refusing to identify illegal aliens and comply with Federal laws, they are opting to expose their legal citizens to more crime and violence. By hiding those here illegally from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, they are sentencing some residents of their cities to harassment and consigning others to their deaths.
For example, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf took it upon herself to tweet out a warning ahead of an ICE raid in northern California last month. Though ICE officials eventually caught 232 illegal immigrants, many of them criminals, hundreds more escaped because of Mayor Schaaf’s reckless act. One of those since apprehended was a Mexican national arrested for robbery and gun crimes, who had been released back into the community for a prior offense despite an ICE detainer request in November. Another Mexican national was arrested for a DUI, despite having previously been deported three times and having multiple convictions, including for DUI and battery of a spouse. The third was a Mexican national who was arrested for corporal injury of a spouse, despite being deported twice and possessing criminal convictions including drug possession, hit-and-run, multiple DUIs, possession of narcotics equipment and a parole violation. Well done, Libby!
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, addressing Schaaf earlier this month, said: “How dare you! How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda.”
How dare she, indeed.
But, perhaps things are saner in jolly old England? Apparently not.
Incredibly, the same governmental authorities who fast-tracked an Iraqi teenager, who admitted he trained with ISIS, into Britain, and promptly placed him in its public welfare system, deported or banned from entering the country three westerners for the crime of wishing to speak…at a free-speech event.
Unfortunately, Ahmed Hassan, the Iraqi teenager, exhibited his gratitude by detonating a nail-bomb on London’s Tube.
The three westerners had no designs on blowing anyone or anything up. Brittany Pettibone is an American. Lauren Southern, ironically, is a Canadian. They are considered by many to be “far-right” for their support of traditional values and Western democratic “virtues.” Martin Sellner is an Austrian activist and leader of the “Identitarian Movement of Austria,” which is attempting to warn people that their European identity is being swept away by unchecked Muslim immigration. He had long dreamt of speaking at London’s famous “Speaker’s Corner.” While he was detained at London’s Heathrow Airport, he wrote a speech…which the UK’s “Border Force” would not allow him to give. It is a speech that should be read by everyone who cherishes liberty, history, and honesty. (It can be read on Mark Steyn’s excellent site, steynonline.com).
Apparently, bombing public spaces and killing innocents is considered free speech in England, but advocating traditional values is considered beyond the pale of a civilized society. And this from a supposedly conservative government!
Western governments and “progressives” are so hell-bent…on retaining and expanding their power and control that they are now actually engaged in a deliberate attempt to replace their own citizens with a demographic group vastly more likely to vote for them. That is why they protect illegal immigrants at the expense of their own citizens. If the illegals, or “undocumented aliens,” kill off a few of those citizens, well, that’s just a “twofer.” The faster these demographic changes are brought about, the sooner Democrats/progressives/leftists will permanently solidify their hold on power.
We in the West are living an anomaly. Never before in human history has a successful, free society so adeptly assisted in its own suicide/destruction.
“Far-right” is what those bent on our destruction mockingly label all those who won’t willingly march to the guillotine. The “ultra-far-left” outlets such as MSNBC label anyone who believes in free-speech and objective truth as “far-right extremists.”
Leftist political language is explicitly designed to make lies sound truthful, and violence and chaos in support of “tolerance and inclusion” seem respectable.
As Orwell stated, during times of universal deceit—times like these—telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
