There just doesn’t seem to be any escape from the idiotic and infuriating whining and virtue signalling on social media and in the mainstream media, about how much of a bad man Trump is. It’s just completely ridiculous at this point. Every story seems to follow the same path.
- Trump says or does something.
- Fake news mainstream media acts as if it as the worst thing ever.
- Idiots on social media buy into fake news story and pretend to be offended over it.
- Rational people try to debate with idiots by appealing to reason.
- Idiots choose to use emotion rather than reason.
- Idiots demand that we throw out common sense in favour of basing official policy around their own subjective emotions.
- Truth comes out that debunks fake news narrative.
- Idiots ignore truth and continue to believe the original lies.
- Trump says or does something new.
- Fake news mainstream media acts as if THIS is the worst thing ever and quietly moves on from previous “scandal”.
- Cycle repeats ad infinitum.
It’s all just so tiring at this point. Look I’m not saying that there aren’t any legitimate reasons to criticise Trump at all. I’ve done so myself in the past, and I will continue to do so, whenever I feel he’s deserving of it. But in regards to the current scandal that the horde of TDS sufferers are outraged over, namely his alleged “concentration camps” for migrant children, I think he has done nothing wrong at all.
The reality is that Trump’s “concentration camps” are anything but, as the following two videos make quite clear.
Trump’s voters voted for him for many reasons, but the biggest reason of all was because of his pledge to deal with illegal immigration, primarily coming from the southern border. He has a mandate to deal with the issue, and the way I can see it, there are only four possible options.
- He can do nothing and effectively give up on having a border at all.
- He can build a border wall that stops people from illegally entering in the first place.
- He can have agents capture and deport illegal immigrants on the spot.
- He can capture and detain immigrants until they’ve had a chance to have their cases heard by a judge. Then deport them afterwards
Option one is the very option he was elected NOT to do. The American people are sick and tired of the consistent failure to defend the borders, and they will not accept this at all.
Option two is the preferred option, and is the one he was voted in to implement. However, his enemies in congress are doing everything in their power to prevent this from happening.
Option three would be a great temporary measure to implement before building the wall, but he’s prevented from doing this, thanks to the actions of a corrupt judiciary that demands “due process” for every captured illegal immigrant. Despite not being citizens, and not being subject to the same constitutional protections as citizens, there is still an expectation that they waste time and money on court cases, before inevitably deporting them.
This means that the only option left is option four, which is the option that Trump is going with. Illegal immigrants have committed a crime by crossing the border illegally, and like all criminals, they are arrested, sent to jail, and given a chance in court to defend themselves. However, kids can’t go to jail with them, because jail is for adults, which inevitably means that kids and adults have to be separated, with the kids taken into state care instead. This is what all the outrage is over. Kids being taken into state care, while their illegal immigrant parents are in jail for committing a crime. But where is this same outrage when other criminals are arrested and separated from their children? Why is it an issue when illegal immigrants are arrested for the crime of illegal border crossing and separated from their kids, but there is no similar outrage in every other circumstance were a person is arrested and separated from their own children?
It’s just emotional blackmail. There’s no attempt at reason. No attempt at nuance. It’s just complete and utter insanity at this point. They don’t offer any reasonable solution to deal with the flow of illegal immigration. They just lash out at every single attempt to solve it.
“Can I build a border wall?”
“No, we won’t give you the funding.”
“Ok, can I have our agents patrol, capture and deport them straight away?”
“No, you have to give them a chance to defend themselves in court before deporting them.”
“Ok, I’ll do that then.”
“No you can’t do that. Many of them have children, and kids can’t be held in jail while their parents are waiting for their court appearance.”
“Ok that’s fine, we’ll build facilities to care for the children. They’ll have nice beds. They’ll have good food and healthcare. We’ll even provide education and leisure activities for them. They’ll be well looked after, while they’re waiting for their parents.”
“No you can’t do that. You can’t separate children from their parents.”
“Ok, so I can’t build a wall to keep them out. I can’t deport them as soon as they’re caught, because they have to appear in court first. I can’t keep the kids in jail with the parents while the parents are waiting for their court appearance, and I can’t take the kids into state care while the parents are in jail, because I can’t separate them. So what can I do instead?”
But we know exactly what he can do. The only option they’ll ever accept. Do nothing. Stop enforcing the border. Stop rounding up illegal immigrants entirely. Stop sending people back. Just abolish the border entirely and let everyone in, with no regard for the longterm consequences of doing so.
That’s literally all they will accept. And that’s the one thing he was elected not to do.
