Rent a Mobs, faux tears, screaming the “F” word at President Trump, has-been left wing actor threats to kidnap Barron Trump and put him in a cage, Laura Bush signs op-ed condemning a practice her husband signed into law… it’s midterms in America and the Democrats are up to their old tricks.
Is America going to buy the left’s latest manufactured hysteria or are we on to the Democrat’s shenanigans and their “blue smoke and mirrors” games?
Does anyone actually still believe that the mob of 50, who just happened to appear in the same restaurant where Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was dining and badgered her to the point where she left, was spontaneous and not a typical left wing funded Rent-A-Mob? Probably the same automatons who buy that the Obamas are going to produce “apolitical” documentaries for Netflix.
As President Trump’s poll numbers were climbing and his successes piling up, the desperate empty suit Democrats were starting to panic. Their “Resist” Trump on all fronts and offer no-solution-to-anything strategy was starting to run on empty; they needed a new “card” to play.
Even their sycophants in the mainstream media were getting nervous; they had taken every shot imaginable at Trump and he was still president. Their leader and financier George Soros was said to be depressed.
But then, just when they had nothing left to spin or lie about, “the Children in the Cage” hoax was born. It was perfect… it was ripe with horrific photo-ops (even though they were taken of children in cages during the Obama presidency), the “race card” slogans for the rent a mob signs almost wrote themselves, and the issue would guarantee NEVER TRUMPERS in the Republican party would join the lefties even before John McCain got around to condemning Trump. Happy Days were here again.
Rachel Maddow cried crocodile tears on cue. Barack Obama’s tax exempt paid “army of activists” and union operatives mobilized to march in the streets. The media showcased America and the world’s universal new found disgust with an identical policy that President Obama implemented throughout his entire presidency.
“Children being ripped from the arms of their parents”, “Republican Nazi concentration camps/detainment centers”, “imprisoned little ones in horrid conditions”, “this is not what America is” are now the talking points heard over and over and over again.
Evidently, it was exactly “what America was” when Barack Obama or even George Bush was president, because separating the small percentage of children who actually come with their parents across the border illegally was precisely what happened during those administrations.
But you didn’t hear a peep out of or tears of outrage streaming down the face of Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings when Trump wasn’t president. The collective silence of the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Shutdown Schumer, John McCain, Jeff Flake, and the ladies on THE VIEW when the Obama White House “ripped these babies out of the arms of their parents” was stunning. Where was their outrage back then?
Evidently, less than 15% of the children presently in temporary American custody were with their parents when they tried to illegally come to America. The rest were unaccompanied or with an adult pretending to be a relative (which includes sex traffickers). Yet you have rent a mobs outside the air conditioned centers where the children are being temporarily held (remember, most of them were all alone), screaming “let our children go!”
Free them to let them go where, Geraldo Rivera? To prostitution rings, MS-13 gangs, to the streets? The professional protesters were not their parents or even related to these children.
Just like the Nazis, these children are being led to the showers, a horrified Joe Scarborough told his gullible, shocked viewers.
Except,the Nazis were leading the Jews to be gassed to death; the children in these centers (many who have traveled a long way in the heat and dirt) are being led to warm showers, followed by hot meals, medical treatment if needed, clean beds, fresh clothes, and recreation centers where they can play pool, basketball, etc. Shame on Joe Scarborough… he has become a shell of the man he once was and owes America an apology for this hideous false depiction of what is going on; but don’t expect Joe Scarborough or his despicable cohorts to apologize, it simply isn’t in their DNA.
Maybe President Trump should call their bluff: let the handful of kids who actually are with their parents as they attempt to invade America, stay with their parents and use that as motivation to fast track the deportation of these families back to their homeland.
And then let’s build that wall so that these exemplary families are no longer getting into America by the tens of thousands and can’t be exploited by dishonest Democrats and the John McCain clones for cheap political gain.
