A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse, unless, of course, that talking horse is the famous Sleepy Joe. Let out on work release by the handlers he always says he will get in trouble with, Dementia Joe Biden addressed a handful of carefully selected reporters with prepared questions and promised that those responsible would be punished and there would be consequences.
Oh, no, not those responsible for flooding our borders with untested, unmasked, and unvaccinated illegal aliens and then shipping them at taxpayer expense to communities around the nation where they are free to wander, burden our health, education, and criminal justice systems when they commit crimes. Want to witness the mother of all super-spreader events? Just look at the border that Joe Biden has flung wide open.
Certainly not those responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle which created a terrorist state armed with billions in state-of-the-art American weaponry that has resumed public executions, getting 13 U.S. servicemen needlessly killed, and then flying out hundreds of thousands of untested, unmasked, unvaccinated, and unknown refugees as American citizens were shamelessly left behind.
Joe Biden did not get angry and promise to punish those responsible for the droning of an innocent Afghan and his family including seven children loading containers of water in their car. He needed a media sorry about revenging the deaths of the 13 American servicemen he got killed, just as he needs a media story about horsemen whipping migrants to distract from the letting in of COVID-infected illegal aliens into American towns and cities.
Joe Biden did not threaten to punish the rogue cop who violated every police manual ever written to murder, yes, murder unarmed Trump supporter Ashlii Babbitt on Jan. 6 at the Capitol. You do not shoot to kill unarmed people whose intentions are unknown and when the imminent danger of physical harm is not present.
Joe Biden’s wrath is reserved for and laser-focused on the U.S. Border Patrol for using horses to control the throngs of Haitian refugees which Joe Biden invited into the country to congregate in squalor under a Del Rio, Texas bridge on this side of our supposedly closed border Says the presidential horse-whisperer:
President Biden on Friday issued a stern warning to Border Patrol agents seen this week chasing migrants on horseback, vowing, “those people will pay,” amid an ongoing investigation into the images which some Democrats have claimed showed agents whipping migrants.
The president said Border Patrol agents were victimizing migrants: “Horses run them over, people being strapped.” However, critics have pointed out the agents were holding onto reins to control the horses, not whips or straps for migrants.
“Of course I take responsibility,” Biden said. “I’m president, but it was horrible what you saw.”
“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped — it’s outrageous,” Biden said. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”
He added that it is “an embarrassment, but beyond an embarrassment, it’s dangerous.”
“It’s wrong,” he said. “It sends the wrong message around the world. It sends the wrong message at home.”
It is Joe Biden that is beyond embarrassment and is dangerous. The message that Joe Biden is sending is the wrong message – that we won’t enforce our laws or our borders and will punish those who risk their lives daily to do so. Forget the dozens of Border Patrol agents who have contracted COVID-19. Forget the Border Patrol Agents hospitalized when Haitians commandeered a bus they thought was taking them to be deported.
Mounted law enforcement has been used in a variety of settings throughout our history. Reins are used to control the horses, not whip migrants. Agents use reins to keep migrants from getting too close to the horses, risking spooking them and getting injured. Professional Democratic race-baiters like Mad Maxine Waters and Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton portray mounted Border Patrol Agents as echoes of slavery past, forgetting that the last time slaves were whipped, it was at the hands of Democratic plantation owners. It was Democrats who blocked the Selma bridge, unleashed the dogs, turned on the fire hoses, stood in the schoolhouse door, and wrote the Jim Crow laws.
And if race were a factor, explain the threat by the Secretary of HHS that Cubans that attempted to sail to Florida fleeing their oppression would be forcibly turned away. Why wasn’t that racist? Ah, Cubans tend to be Republicans and would not fit into the Democratic plan to import migrants as a new voter base in a plan to change the electoral demographics of America.
The fact is that most Haitians under the Del Rio bridge were not victims of oppression and in fact had achieved refugee status in various countries like Brazil and Chile and headed north only when Joe Biden extended them an invitation and grabbed all the free stuff, including their absentee ballots:
An immigration expert in Del Rio, Texas, says all of the Haitian illegal immigrants he has interviewed among the 15,000 huddled at the U.S.-Mexico border in squalid conditions have lived “pretty good” lives in Chile or Brazil for the past several years.
“I’ve never met one yet who is actually coming directly from Haiti. But they will probably apply for asylum on the basis of [problems] in Haiti,” said Todd Bensman, a senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies and author of “America’s Covert Border War.”
The reporting by Bensman, who has interviewed migrants for more than a year in his traveling through Guatemala and Mexico, was featured by New York Post columnist Miranda Devine.
Bensman said the Haitians in Del Rio were “living a pretty good life [in South America] but they are seeing an opportunity to improve their situation.”
The Haitians, according to Bensman, “say they heard Joe Biden was opening the border up so they came.”
If you open the border, Joe, they will come. Perhaps that’s the whole idea since you recently celebrated the fact that America was becoming minority white:
On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden said it will be a “good thing” when whites are an “absolute minority” in America in 2017.
The U.S. Census, though, has projected that America will be a majority-minority nation in 2044. The Census report, released in March, also projected that “by 2060, nearly one in five of the nation’s total population is projected to be foreign-born.”
By 2017, those of us of European stock will be an absolute minority in the United States of America,” Biden said at a State Department luncheon for Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. According to pool reports, Biden added that that’s “not a bad thing, that’s a good thing” because it means the country is becoming more diverse.
Which part of E Pluribus Unum does Joe Biden not understand? We already welcome legal immigrants from all over the world. But America was supposed to be a melting pot and not a salad bar. We are a nation of laws, and not men, and not a collection of tribes either. Enforce the laws Joe and quit horsing around.
