As you read this, a “caravan” of thousands of Central Americans, estimated at four to seven thousand so far, treks through Mexico with the announced intention of swarming across our country’s southern border–illegally.
Who is funding this? (https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/newt-gingrich-the-caravan-is-an-attack-on-america-stop-the-caravan-now) In Newt Gingrich’s words, this “caravan” is “an organized effort to destroy the rule of law,” and assorted villains on the Left, with the tacit blessing of the Democrat Party, “are funding this deliberate attempt to invade America.”
This is a campaign to destabilize America. It’s being waged for a political purpose: to ruin Donald Trump’s presidency and somehow get Democrats back into power in next month’s elections.
Here’s how it works. Either the president stops the invasion, which would probably necessitate the use of force, and provide unhappy incidents which will allow Democrats to denounce his cruelty and “racism”; or else he doesn’t stop it, gutting his own promise to protect our borders and demoralizing his supporters in time for Democrats to make hay in the elections.
Could anything be more cynical? What are we to think of persons, and of a political party, so willing to use poor people in poor countries as pawns, not caring what happens to them, just for their own political gain? “Despicable” would be a big step up for them.
Whatever happens at the border, use your vote next month to punish those who did this. And that would be the Democrats.
