More irony this week… so much of it, it’s hard to take. This time it’s from the Democrats and this one is a doozy.
The open borders/never build a wall Progressives are… wait for it… building a wall around their entire convention venue. You just can’t make this crap up. They are building a special no-scale fence around the Wells Fargo and Xfinity Live! perimeter. It will be at least 6 ft. tall and I would bet more like 7 or 8 ft.
Supporters of Bernie Sanders are planning for a protest outside the DNC and have received approval from the city for 30,000 demonstrators at the park adjacent to the convention venue for the entire week. The protest will be outside the fenced area. Gee, wonder if there will be armed security there with high-powered rifles? More irony on tap.
From Dennis Michael Lynch:
There will be security restrictions around the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, host to this year’s Democratic National Convention, including some street closures, interstate ramp closures…. and a wall.
NBC News met with Secret Service Special Agent James Henry on Thursday, who discussed steps they will be taking to provide security at the event.
Special no-scale fencing around the Wells Fargo and Xfinity Live! perimeter will be installed. Details on the type of fencing are not available yet, but reports indicate it could be at least 6 feet tall, perhaps more. (Senator Jeff Sessions put out a statement regarding the development of a fence, it’s a great read.)
Senator Jeff Sessions nailed it:
“It’s interesting that the Democratic National Committee will have a wall around their convention to keep unapproved people out while at the same time, their presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton, pushes for open borders policies that are even more radical than President Obama’s. She would refuse to deport dangerous criminal aliens until after they have been convicted of committing heinous crimes against Americans, close detention centers, issue even more extreme executive orders than Obama, and increase Syrian refugees five-fold. Her proposed policies make no sense, decimate the rule of law, further reduce wages for poor Americans, and increase the risk of terrorism and criminal behavior.
Security is a necessity in this increasingly dangerous world. Clinton and the DNC don’t hesitate to use walls and guns for protecting themselves and their elite friends. I say it’s time to provide such protection to the at-risk people like Kate Steinle, and Clinton not understanding this will lead to her defeat.”
The hypocrisy is heavy with this one. The Democrats have screamed about securing our borders from the very beginning. Not only have they been hot to bring in illegal aliens, they are trying to bring in as many Islamic refugees as possible. There are a number of reasons for this, but the biggest is changing the national voting demographic forever, so that Democrats will stay in power and office indefinitely. They don’t care about average citizens and what Islamic refugees or violent illegal immigrants will do to our streets and neighborhoods.
But when it comes to their personal security, just build the damned wall already! Wow. Anything to keep the riff raff out and protect their own hides. And you know who’s paying for that wall? That’s right, we are.
