Trump being unjustly criticized for following our laws


Wednesday, July 4, 2018

The late great Charles Krauthammer once stated that “Liberalism is an emotionally based ideology and conservatism is an intellectually based ideology.” What better example is there, than when Krauthammer spoke about politics. He was always the smartest man in the room. Then you have someone like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who on more than one occasion resorts to crying on the air?

Recent letters to The Daily Advance chastising President Trump for enforcing our laws is another great example. Not once in any of these letters was a single fact or statistic used. Every point made was an unsubstantiated opinion based on feelings.

Democrats and those who have criticized the president never had a problem with Barack Obama separating illegal children from their parents. What part of “Illegal” don’t these people understand? One letter even stated that these people are not criminals and that they are not committing a crime by entering the U.S. illegally. The Democrats have tried countless issues to destroy Trump. All of them have failed miserably. This is just the latest.

Does anyone notice that in all the letters, tweets and commentary you hear from the left, not a single time do you hear a solution to the problem? If they are truly this outraged, wouldn’t they at least offer a solution?

Why do Democrats care more about these people crossing the border illegally than they do American citizens? Were they outraged over the senseless murder of Kate Steinle or the countless other Americans killed by those here illegally? Of course not. It doesn’t fit their narrative.

Time magazine even put on its latest cover a crying child that was never separated from her mother. Never! And the media wonder why so very few trust them.

To the liberals I ask, do you lock your doors at night? If so, why? Isn’t Trump doing the same thing by enforcing our laws? If they robbed a store in Elizabeth City and were arrested, wouldn’t they be separated from their children? How many of these children and families have the outraged media members, celebrities and Democrats taken in to their homes? Surely they have at least one empty bedroom in their house. The sheer hypocrisy from these folks is laughable.

If Democrats believe abortion is morally OK, they should probably sit out the whole “separating children from their parents is cruel” debate.
