Walls Are Great … for Democrats

“To the Democratic National Committee elites, keeping average Americans away from their convention is a good idea, while protecting the southern border from intruding terrorists, rapists and murderers is a bad one. The DNC has erected a four-mile fence around its convention site at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. (Isn’t it ironic they’re doing so much to protect a site named after a bank?)

The fence, which appears to be about 8 feet tall, is intended to keep out any individuals with whom Democratic Party leaders, delegates and other liberal elites would rather not mingle. Fox 29’s Steve Keeley shared a picture of a portion of the fence he said was erected near the intersection of Pattison and Broad. Twitter user @brokencarpenter visited the DNC border wall and noted there was ‘acres and acres and acres of fence.'”


But then again, it’s not. It’s healthy and reasonable to want boundaries. Just as a lock on your door, and a secret password for your bank account, are not unhealthy, it’s not unreasonable for a political party holding a high profile convention to want fences, police, or whatever other form of security is required to keep the peace.

The problem with Democrats is: They want boundaries for themselves, and for those they represent, but not for anyone else.

If you or I wish to own a gun for self-protection, this is a bad thing. If a major donor to the Democratic Party wants self-protection, that’s perfectly OK. If Hillary Clinton or the people around her want security, well of course that’s essential. Ditto for Hollywood celebrities, so long as they give money to Clinton and Kaine.

If Americans wish to build a wall to ensure that people, in these times of terrorism, cannot get into the country unless legally approved to do so first — well, that makes you a paranoid freak. And if you wish to reconsider the wisdom of open immigration for Muslims, given the fact that Islamic terrorists are presently laying waste to Europe, then you’re — well, of course (insert gasp here) a racist.

Democrats at their convention like and want security and protection for themselves, and for those who donate to them. They don’t want it for anyone else.

I am so sick of the stereotype that only progressives and Democrats are nice. The Democratic Party is not a nice movement. It’s the meanest, most narrow-minded and hypocritical bunch of people ever to call themselves Americans. What’s good enough for them is not good enough for anyone else. Their officials are above the law, while the rest of us are subject to the law, and even then some, especially if you oppose them (for example, the IRS when it ganged up on the Tea Party.)

Sooner or later, irrational and unjust people get what they deserve. When you’re fundamentally at war with reality and facts, as socialists generally and Democrats in particular are, then eventually the truth catches up with you. The only reason Democrats have come this far is because they’re skillful at perpetuating class division, racial division and other things which understandably frighten and disturb people.

Also, Democrats represent the party of bullying. They want to leave us all defenseless to the literally infinite number of government agencies, rules, taxes, regulations, bans and even censorship now being imposed by their party. With the green light of an “Obama third term,” nobody knows what will be next, but it won’t be good. They cloak their meaningless political prattle in smooth double-talk of “caring, compassion and love.” Nothing could be further from the truth.

Government is not about caring, compassion and love. Those virtues are for individuals to practice in life where they willingly and voluntarily see fit. Government is all about force. Because violent and fraudulent people will always exist, we want and need a government. But government is supposed to protect the innocent from those who wield force. Instead, it’s now government imposing its will on innocent victims — citizens — far more than any criminal could ever dream of doing. And, as Hillary Clinton exemplifies better than anyone else, those government agencies who are supposed to protect us will never go after their own. The system is beyond rigged; it’s essentially dead.

Yes, of course both parties are guilty. That’s why the Republican Party has imploded (and deservedly so). But Democrats are digging in their heels and taking the long-range view. They’re going all the way with their quest for authoritarian control over the economy, and even the people themselves. In the end, it will crash and burn just like Communism, Nazism and all these other movements did. Unfortunately, they will create a lot more victims along the way. Give them a chance to do even more harm, and they will.
