I am truly confused. I really do not understand. Has 50%+ of this nation, and 65%+ of California become so immoral, so unethical, so unfeeling, and so callous that they will resort to lies, distortions, obfuscation, and character assassination to push a political agenda? Those of us who are not members of the Progressive/Liberal ultra-left wing of the Democrat party cannot believe what we hear from the media, politicians, and political ideologues, who belong to the leftist cabal in our nation.
The latest lie coming from the Left is that children are being held in cages by the Border Patrol, ICE, and local law enforcement while illegal immigrants are being processed and awaiting deportation. According to SNOPES, this “heart-rending photograph of a crying child in a cage has been widely shared, but it was part of a protest to call attention to immigration practices.” The photo is actually from a pro-illegal immigration rally held on June 10, 2018. The group holding the rally erected the cage and used teenagers, children, and toddlers as props. Photos of the event were then picked up by the media and left-leaning immigration groups and used to do nothing more than smear President Trump, undermine current immigration policies, and create sympathy for illegal immigration. This is nothing more than another appeal to the emotions (argumentum ad passions) of the populace that has no basis in fact and does not advance the debate on immigration policy because the emotional plea is not backed by any effective solution.
Whether you call yourself a Leftist, Socialist, Progressive, or a Democrat, you really should question the motives and the morality of the group that you claim to belong to. The biggest political party in the United States should be able to come up with logical arguments and effective policy, plans, and programs that address the situation without having to resort to blatant lies and massive disinformation campaigns.
