Some early, hopeful rays of light have shone through since the inauguration of President Trump, piercing the cloud of darkness left by his predecessor in office. The Washington Post reports on another today, stating that the weekly number of U.S. government deportation flights landing in Mexico City has gone up 50% since the current President took office — from two to three. The most recent flight carried 135 people. At that rate, and if that was the only deportation channel, it would only take around 480 years (as opposed to 720) to fly all our illegal aliens to Mexico City. Baby steps, but in the right direction.
But what really struck me, when reading that report, was the dullness that the WaPo’s left-wing politically correct agenda imposes upon the intellects of their writers and editors. It requires a lot of willful blindness to carry out their (un)holy mission of trying to guilt legacy-Americans into thinking that basic law enforcement is bad. Two whoppers stood out.
Over the past month, numerous Jewish Community Centers (“JCCs”) across America received hoax bomb threats. These frequently triggered building evacuations, police responses, security sweeps and a whole lot of general consternation. A number of Hebrew graves in St. Louis were also vandalized at the time, which was viewed as somehow probably linked to the bomb threats.
Our hysterical friends in the mainstream press, who still fixate daily on Adolf Hitler, lost no time rushing to insinuate that these anti-Jewish incidents were the fault of some very-bad no-good right-wing Trump-supporting cisgendered heteropatriarchical White Men, and that our sitting President bore responsibility for unleashing these menaces on an unsuspecting population. For instance, the Washington Post wrote, on February 21:
The remarks by Trump [denouncing the JCC bomb threats] also appear aimed at easing pressure on his administration, which faces claims from opponents that it has failed to distance itself from extremist ideology and has emboldened right-wing groups through its populist, America-first themes.
Got that? According to conventional wisdom, the chain of causation is:
Election of Trump –> fails to distance himself from “extremist ideology” (note the use of the same phrase typically reserved for guys like Jihadi John) –> Emboldened right-wing groups –> White guys intimidating Jews.
You know the guys that the Washington Post has in mind. They’re thinking of the guys in this photo, when they get a little too boozed up:
Back in November, shortly after Donald Trump’s election, I wrote a very popular post in which I called upon the President-elect to deport every publicity-seeking illegal alien who was audacious enough to flaunt his lawbreaking habits. I even helpfully assembled a list of such illegal aliens based on press articles, where such aliens tended to give sob-story interviews in a misplaced attempt to garner sympathy.
While President Trump did not manage to deport everyone on my list during his first day in office — and while he has been disappointingly slow and equivocal as to what policies he will adopt with respect to Obama’s lawless DACA program — I must give credit where it is due. After years of anarch0-tyranny, his administration is showing signs of cracking down on the proper object of Federal law enforcement: the brazen and the lawless.
Today’s Washington Post provides an excellent example: Daniela Vargas, 22, late of Jackson, Miss., and former participant in the DACA program (she allowed her DACA status to expire last November) spoke at a news conference on the steps of Jackson city hall after her father and brother — also illegal aliens — had been detained by the immigration authorities. Shortly after speaking at that news conference she was detained by the immigration authorities as an “unlawfully present Argentinian citizen.”
