As tens of thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America spill over our southern border, millions of disregarded black kids remain confined to war-like ghettoes across the United States. If the level of violence occurring every day in urban black communities popped up anywhere else, does anyone believe liberals would pretend not to notice?

Apparently, as long as a significant element of urban blacks are content to destroy each other, the Democrat Party seems more than happy to go on supporting them with taxpayer money. Of course, the individuals most responsible for annihilating these neighborhoods -- along with their children who inherit their addiction -- are those individuals most strung out on the government’s ghoulish compassion peddled by the Democrat Party.

On the other hand, the illegal immigrants who are fleeing barbaric countries spark a more vocal hysteria into liberals everywhere. They simultaneously make demands for immediate amnesty -- which, of course, would do nothing to stop the tsunami of people coming here illegally, since Democrats refuse to seal the border. Yet liberals fall over each other to parade their sanctimony before the media. They clamor about “immigration reform” and children from countries terrorized by drug cartels; meanwhile, more urban black kids become murder victims of gang violence, and the liberal majority pretends not to notice.

In general, however, magnanimous words and feigned compassion regarding Central America’s children will persuade the average liberal to the Democrats’ bizarre panacea: entitlements for everyone. To progressives, pouring hard-earned-taxpayer money down an endless hole in the southern border means nothing -- much like financing the self-destruction of many urban blacks doesn’t seem to bother them, either. For liberals, good intentions trump terrible consequences, and giving away other people’s money may serve as some twisted therapy to cope with the internal shame of exploiting impoverished people for political gains. But most of us understand that financing other human beings’ self-destruction is morbid -- even when liberals call it “compassionate help.”
