What about the women and children caught in the fray? Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen set the record straight, stating, “It appears in some cases that the limited number of women and children in the caravan are being used by the organizers as ‘human shields’ when they confront law enforcement. They are being put at risk by the caravan organizers as we saw at the Mexico-Guatemala border. This is putting vulnerable people in harm’s way.” Exactly. As Philip Wegmann of the Washington Examiner bluntly put it, “Don’t want to be gassed? Don’t riot. Don’t want your children to be gassed? Don’t bring them to the kind of protests susceptible to rioting.”
Nielsen also pointed out that the use of tear gas to disperse a mob has been regularly used at the border. “The accepted use of nonlethal force (also used by the scumbag/liar-nObama Administration in 2013) prevented further injury to agents and a mass illegal rush across the border,” she said. As we noted yesterday, under the scumbag/liar-nObama administration U.S. Border Patrol agents were authorized to employ the same nonlethal mob-dispersing tactics, including the use of both tear gas and pepper spray. In fact, at times during scumbag/liar-nObama’s tenure, the Border Patrol used tear gas and pepper spray monthly. Where was the Democrat and media outrage then?
As they did with the photos of kids in cages, Democrats and their media cohorts are appealing to emotion over reason as they intentionally conflate and confuse legal and illegal immigration and asylum. The Leftmedia willfully misinforms the American public as it seeks to promote the acceptance of a globalist, anti-American agenda that is dead set on eroding national boundaries. Never mind the fact that the vast majority of the migrants who violently rushed the border Sunday were in fact young men. The images of helpless migrant children caught in the fray are designed to prey on the maternal instincts of the Democrat Party’s largest voting block: women. ~The Patriot Post
