To hear Trump and the rest of the right-wing nut jobs tell it, we’re being invaded by a migrant caravan full of crooks, rapists and ISIS terrorists.
Crooks And Rapists And Terrorists. Oh My!
Migrant Caravan entering Mexico
The claim of the infiltration of “unknown Middle Easterners” seems to have originated from the extreme right “Judicial Watch.” An organization not known for their strict adherence to truth. They took a report on the arrest of 100 people suspected in Guatemala of potential terrorism and combined it with a separate story on the migrant caravan. Of course, the arrest happened before the caravan was organized in Honduras. But, what to facts have to do with a juicy conspiracy theory?
As to the crooks and rapists part? That’s been a guaranteed applause line at every one of Trump’s narcissistic rallies. (To be fair, he actually admitted that there might be a few “good people” in the mix. However, that doesn’t seem to generate much hand clapping.)
As a history buff, I find this disheartening, but not surprising.
Despite the immortal line “All men are created equal,” this has always been a racist (and sexist) country! Even that line only states that men are created equal. Back then, women weren’t.
There are times when the bigotry is a bit less overt, but it’s always there. From the Irish and German Catholics of the “Know Nothing” era to the Italians, the Chinese, the Africans and almost anyone that wasn’t descended from Northern European WASPs. However, you have to go back to the 20’s, last century to find it this openly rampant. (You can thank Trump for making it seem politically ok!)
One of the primary reasons for a migrant to join a caravan is safety in numbers. Central American countries are far from safe places to live. (Let alone, travel 1998 miles to the U.S.) Some of these countries have murder stats that would scare a gun-nut. However, if there’s a few thousand in the group, not too many people (or governments) are going to hassle them.
This latest group has grown from a few hundred to over 7,000 at last count. While not the first migrant caravan, (They’ve been occurring since at least the 80’s.) this is certainly one of the largest.
Unfortunately, this particular caravan is coming during election season and the Regressives are using every lie they can think of to blast it and connect it to the Democrats.
After all, fear has always been the Regressives’ strategy to win elections when they can’t run on issues. Back when I was growing up, Russians were the boogie men, then it was gays, now it’s Muslims and Hispanics. (And, it’s always been the African-Americans.)
To aid in this cause along comes Mike Huckabee, with his distorted take on the situation.
What we are seeing here are people who are demanding that they’re going to come in and nothing is gonna stop them. That’s not an immigration, that’s an invasion.
Well, it’s gonna look ugly, quite frankly. But I’ll tell you what also looks ugly is the fact that what we have is again an invasion. And you just can’t stand there and say well, if there’s that many of you, then we’re gonna go ahead and just look the other way. Because then you’ve really created a wide open door. And it’ll never stop.
I don’t understand, I mean what it looks like in some ways…You might say, it’s a registration line for Democrat voters, because the Democrats have been silent about this. Why? Do they not care about the borders of our country? Do they not care?
Who Done It?
Of course, the Regressives needed someone to blame all of this on. Not surprisingly, they chose their favorite scapegoat, George Soros. Soros has the added advantage of being Jewish. And, despite its claim of love for Israel (Or, at least the way Israel treats Arabs.) the right does NOT love Jews.
The cast of Soros-blamers are the usual gang of idiots. There’s a bunch, so I’ll just use a couple of the more prominent liars. It’s all repetitious bullshit anyway.
Starting off my list is everybody’s least favorite “crazy uncle,” Pat Robertson.
Yesterday [10/22/18] Robertson claimed that the migrant caravan was bought and paid for by old “bottomless billfold” George Soros. He then called on the idiot in the Offal Office to send troops to stop them and then investigate Soros for causing the mess in the first place.
It’s going to be a public relations nightmare for our president if he doesn’t get ahead of this thing. The person who has apparently been financing this thing is George Soros. Now, we don’t have hard evidence on that, but that’s the suspicion; that the George Soros foundation has somehow been providing money because somebody has been paying those people off.
My suggestion is that the Justice Department needs to get a warrant to search the books of the Soros foundation to see if indeed they have been setting this thing up. The whole idea was to use these people to embarrass the president just before the election.
As he admitted, he has no proof whatsoever. Just a gut feeling it had to be Soros.
Next up: Rick Wiles!
Wiles cited the aforementioned (and debunked) lie that ISIS terrorists were “embedded in this mob.” He then claimed that it was indeed Soros that “masterminded” the caravan. (Once again, no damn proof, but there you go.)
He demanded that Soros be arrested as an enemy of the state. (Earth to idiot: Trump is not “the state.” He only works for it.)
I don’t know why George Soros has not been named as an enemy of the state. His wealth should be seized. He should be arrested and imprisoned. He is working to collapse nations. He is a dangerous … he is a financial political terrorist.
Think all of this is just talk, with no real danger of lies like these spreading among the educationally challenged? Yesterday a bomb was sent to Soros’s home.
According to the Bedford Police Department,
An employee of the residence opened the package, revealing what appeared to be an explosive device. The employee placed the package in a wooded area and called the Bedford police.
The package was blown up and nobody was hurt. THIS TIME!
And make sure you vote. (Your country needs you before these anal pits take complete control.)
p.s.: If my ramblings don’t revolt you, check out my FaceBook page (“Grouchy’s Grumbles”) you might just enjoy it. Better yet, you might “like” it. I’d love it if you did. It’s free (and worth every cent) and almost completely painless (other than the usual bad jokes).
