Left Whips Up Hate

This kind of rhetoric reminds you of the hate that the anti-war Left spewed at our soldiers fighting in Vietnam. Our nation is still healing from that.

A human rights professor has called on the public to name and shame US Border Patrol guards to force them to quit their jobs.

Kate Cronin-Furman, an assistant professor of human rights at University College London, wrote in the New York Times that the guards needed to be pressured by their communities for the mistreatment of migrants.

She believes a ‘mass atrocity’ is taking place and says that people should expose guards who are ‘midlevel functionaries who make the system run’.

Cronin-Furman added that her plan would ensure that guards would be ‘internationally shamed’ as rights abusers, making them unable to say they were ‘just following orders.’

    The left is a giant hate factory against everything America stands for.

    Just curious Owen, how old were you during Vietnam?  Did you personally witness that “hate”?  And recall that Nixon got elected condemning Johnson for Nam.  That’s why I voted for him..

    Le Roi, you’re kidding right? You haven’t read about the stories about soldiers coming home who were spit upon? And yes, I was around then. And in my job, I meet many veterans who experienced this.
    But let’s face the facts. If you are Democrat or a liberal, you are a racist and you support racist policies, even today.
    Liberalism is about hate and racism. It cannot be denied and it is a prove fact.

    I lived that era (drafted in Jan. 1970), so yup, been there, done that.

    But let’s see that “proof fact” that liberalism is about hate and racism.

    You sound like a broken record always looking for proof. Just read the news, listen to liberals speak, look at facebook. The hate and anger is all around us all the time, like shaming border guards and Antifa attacks. Maybe you could prove otherwise and cite all the positive liberal discussions, gatherings and actions taking place.

    You’ll find a “proof fact” overload merely by paying attention to the world outside of what’s left of our Mayberry communities. Good on you if you still live in a Mayberry, by the way.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    Sure things like clean drinking water, clean air, health care, honesty and integrity, etc. are all racist and hateful.  But things like neo-nazis, birthers, separating children from their parents, 11000 lies and counting, etc.  are all warm and fuzzy?   I guess I’m glad I still live in Mayberry.

  8. guinness

    What a joke. You have your examples backwards.

    Honesty and integrity? Wow!

    How does abortion fit in with health care?

    If you believe all of your descriptions, you’re totally beyond talking to.

  9. Le Roi du Nord

    Well, which conservatives have spoken out in favor of clean water, clean air or health care?  Honesty and integrity is a non starter (to wit: 11000 lies and counting).

    I eagerly await your response…

    Le Roi, show me 1 politician that doesn’t lie or stretch the truth. AOC lies more than Trump. Obozo had some really big fat liws, some that much worse than Trump has ever said, especially about Obozocare. And Obama actually hurt many Americans with his policies, especially me.
