How do you feel about “migrant” children – presumably here illegally – who are put in a cage until….who knows until when?
Well here’s a picture – a real one – of just that:
Does this picture bother you? Outrage you?
Do you blame the President of the United States and his immigration policy for the treatment afforded these children? Would you want media to attack him unmercifully for it?
If so, you have plenty of company. Yesterday, when the above picture became publicized, a raft of media people such as CNN’s Hadas Gold, the New York Times Magazine’s editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein, and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, among others, furiously tweeted out comments which excoriated, villified and pummeled President Donald Trump.
….as pointed out by “Tyler Durden (a pseudonym for one of the writers at zerohedge.com), the picture was taken not in 2018, but in 2014.
Hmmmmm, let’s see. The President in 2014 was…wait, give me a second here….oh, yeah. Barack Obama.
The saddest, most pathetic part of this story is that, when the date of the picture became known, every one of the people mentioned above did not change the name of the President on their furious tweets. They deleted the tweets altogether.
In other words, the inhumanity of treatment afforded these children was worthy of the strongest condemnation they could muster…until they found out that it was President Obama, not President Trump in charge at the time. Then, like magic, their concern completely disappeared. Children in cages didn’t count at all.
Regular readers of hopelesslypartisan.com know that I ongoingly rail against many of today’s “journalists” for their partisanship and lack of integrity. This should go a long way toward explaining why.
