Oh, of course, MSNBC peddled this trash out there. It is like peering into a whole other universe watching that network, whose sole job is to keep liberal blood pressures low. When a Democrat is in the Oval Office, it’s the era of good feelings. When the GOP wins, it’s apocalypse watch, which has increased in its insanity and stupidity since Trump win in 2016. This network thought we’d be mid-way through another Clinton presidency, and then that plan got punched in the mouth.
Now, as the government is shut down over border security, the far Left is coming out swinging, with a few members suggesting that Trump’s ultimate aim to pretty much wipe out minorities in America. It’s nonsense. Enter Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who was on host Chris Hayes’ show, where she suggested that the fight over the wall isn’t about border security, but Trump’s alleged white nationalist agenda of purifying America (via Real Clear Politics):
CHRIS HAYES, HOST: Joining me now, Democratic Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal of Washington who was at the southern border last month helping migrants seek asylum and who worked in -- with immigrants and immigrant rights before she came to Congress.
Do you think a deal can be made, or do you think this is fundamentally existential and cannot be made?
REP. PRAMILA JAYAPAL (D-WA): It is fundamentally existential if he continues to insist on a wall. And, you know, you just said it so beautifully, Chris, this has never been about a wall. He actually could have gotten funding a couple of years ago, or a year ago, for a wall. It was part of a deal that was proposed. Not all of us agreed with that deal, but it was proposed to him and he turned it down because his ultimate goal is, as you said, to make America pure in the sense of not having immigrants, not having folks of color here and shutting down every form of legal immigration, all to throw a bone to those people.
Well, congresswoman, there is a crisis at the border. The Washington Post and The New York Times did stories about, not necessarily publications that are part of the right wing. Gangs are pouring across the border. Drugs are pouring across the border. The detention facilities are becoming overwhelmed. Hordes of these people are trying to bum rush ports of entry. Enough. This is a party, who despite their support for border security, really don’t want it. I know I’m preaching to the choir, but walls work. They know it. That’s why they’re staunchly opposed to it. They want amnesty. They want these people’s votes in the fullness of time, and they don’t care how many commit crimes in the process. When did being pro-legal immigrationbecome a dog whistle? It’s not. It’s how it should be done. I’m sick of the sob stories being used as a pass to break federal immigration laws. Oh, but families are being broken up. Yeah, tell that to the scores of American families destroyed because people who shouldn’t have been here committed heinous act of murder and mayhem. Build that wall, Mr. President.
Also, to those, like Jayapal, who see racism everywhere quit sniffing glue. It’s going to fry whatever brain cells you have left, most of which were eradicated when you decided to become liberals.
