Leftist Agitators Aren’t Fooling Americans

Barry MacDonald

It is characteristic of our time that so many people who are in positions of authority cannot be trusted. Our laws, traditions, and ideals are being trashed. Government officials are arrogant, accusatory, hypocritical, dishonest, and incompetent. They are unconcerned about the suffering their policies are inflicting on the middle and working classes of America.

The rule of law has been upended. Illegal migrants are pouring across our southern border, and federal government contractors were caught red-handed transporting migrants from the southern border to White Plains, New York. From there, the migrants were being dispersed to the tri-state area in the middle of the night. The reporter who exposed the story, Miranda Devine, estimates that two million illegal immigrants have entered America in 2021, with the connivance of the Department of Homeland Security.

Who knows how many illegal migrants have crossed our borders? Where are they being taken by the Federal government? Who are these people? We can’t get straight answers from Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Think of the irony of the name of the bureaucracy he’s in charge of. Government titles are often dishonest in practice: Mayorkas is undermining American security.

These migrants are impoverished, unvaccinated, and untested for COVID, and enter they without background checks. People from Bangladesh, Somalia, Yemen, Lebanon, Uzbekistan, Eritrea, Haiti, Cuba, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, India, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador have been caught crossing the border. The smugglers are being paid $9,000 per person. The Biden Administration has turned the control of the southern border over to the Mexican drug cartels.

There were so many negative developments in 2021.

  • Gang violence is taking over our major cities, such as New York, Baltimore, Chicago, Portland, and Seattle. With few exceptions, the media ignore the innocent minority victims of minority perpetrators. Black children are being shot and killed in their homes, backyards, and in their parents’ cars — and their names aren’t reported.
  • Progressive district attorneys in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Milwaukee are refusing to keep career criminals in jail, and criminals are released with no or low bail. Darrell E. Brooks is such a case. He is a career criminal who killed six and injured dozens by driving a vehicle through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, after having been released on a $1,000 bond.
  • School board meetings are scenes of contention. School systems are short-changing children by refusing to teach in-person in classrooms in some places; by imposing harmful mask mandates; and by espousing racist theories and warped gender programs. Public and private schools from elementary schools to universities have become indoctrination factories. It is a good sign that parents are confronting and organizing against teachers’ unions, school boards, and education bureaucrats. The question is: Whose children are they — the government’s or the parent’s?

It is a tell-tale sign of the time that people in places of authority, from the local to the national level, are being squeezed by good-hearted opposition, and in response they are deceitful, dismissive, condescending, obstructive, and nasty. Hard-left officials can’t be honest about their intentions and about the impact of their policies.

A majority of Americans are feeling the effects of inflation and the high price of gasoline. We are noticing that the president and governors and mayors aren’t following the mandates they promulgate — they aren’t wearing masks when photographed in public. Americans understand that the vaccines aren’t preventing the spread of COVID-19, and that the forced closures of private businesses in 2020 and 2021 failed, harming people unnecessarily. The flood of illegal immigrants into America isn’t being concealed. Parents and decent Americans don’t want children taught in elementary school that they are either oppressors or hopeless victims of an inherently racist society. We expect district attorneys to prosecute criminals — we want violent offenders off the street. Americans are disgusted by the swelling encampments of homeless people in our big cities, and we are outraged that city councils and mayors aren’t cleaning up their cities. The vast majority of Americans support the police, abhor the assassinations of police officers, and oppose the defunding of police departments. Americans haven’t forgotten that President Biden and his “woke” generals abandoned large numbers of Americans, and American allies, in Afghanistan; and that he lied in doing so.

The truth is that Leftist agitators have nothing to offer America but division and misery. A majority of Americans see through their dishonesty.     *
