Crazed Dims, crazed leftists, and they have replaced the KKK with Antifa as their paramilitary arm.


The paper of record runs a shameful op-ed in response to the border crisis.



I am growing increasingly convinced that the cardinal challenge of our time is the defense of the rule of law and a culture of liberty against the culture of outrage and fear. And when even the most historically respected and presently influential publications publish reckless attacks on due process and dangerous calls for personal confrontation, that challenge grows more acute.


Over the weekend, the New York Times ran an inflammatory and irresponsible op-ed by human-rights professor Kate Cronin-Furman urging a direct attack on America’s constitutional order. She makes three primary points. First, that the “harsh conditions” at border detention facilities represent a “mass atrocity” because they’re a “deliberate, systematic attack on civilians.” Second, that under those circumstances public officials responsible for border conditions should be denied an effective legal defense. And third, that Customs and Border Protection agents who staff detention facilities should be publicly named and shamed, “particularly in their home communities.”


Cronin-Furman is comprehensively, systematically wrong. It is odd indeed that the Times published an essay accusing the administration of a “mass atrocity” two days after Congress passed a $4.6 billion bill by overwhelming bipartisan margins to fund aid for migrant children at the border. That’s how a functioning democracy responds to a crisis.


In fact, the unfolding response to the conditions at the border shows exactly how civil liberties and constitutional governance work together to ameliorate genuine crises. The Department of Homeland Security has been hit with an immense wave of illegal entrants. From January to May, total border apprehensions almost tripled, the number of unaccompanied minors more than doubled, and the number of family units more than tripled. In short, the system was overwhelmed.

In fact it is the modern incarnation of Cloward-Piven, deliberately driven by the Dims, their money-men and their lawyers encouraging this, and dog-whistling to come here. Overwhelm the system followed by crocodile tears.

It wouldn't surprise me to find out that democrat agents were convincing people to rush our border.

They are probably down south right now rounding up groups of people.
