Pope Francis exhibited raw hypocrisy as he warned President Donald Trump…without specifically using his name…that building a wall to stem the flow of millions of illegal aliens will have dreadful consequences.
“Builders of walls, be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build,” the pope told reporters aboard his papal plane over the weekend. “The issue of migration will never be resolved by raising barriers, fomenting fear of others or denying assistance to those who legitimately aspire to a better life for themselves and their families.”
Returning to Rome from Morocco, where he used the occasion to speak extensively about those he refers to as “migrants,” during his two-day visit to the Muslim-majority nation. Francis praised King Mohamed VI, for welcoming and protecting “migrants,” and warned of the futility of border walls and other barriers in keeping out those who seek a better life. The king spends little time in his kingdom, preferring a castle in Oise, France which his father, the late King Hassan, bought in 1972. The fully modernized estate is maintained by a massive staff paid by Morocco’s taxpayers. His recently divorced wife has disappeared from public view as she’s been replaced by a newer queen. The pope remained silent on that issue, preferring to focus on President Donald Trump.
In 2016, Francis determined who is and who isn’t a Christian, with President Trump falling short in the eyes of the clairvoyant pope, who stated, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”
In response, SRAZ posted, Pope Francis: “Tear down this wall,” paraphrasing President Reagan’s message to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev regarding the Berlin Wall that divided the German city and separated its own citizens.
The Marxist pope, an ardent anti-capitalist who has referred to capitalism as “the dung of the devil,” favors wealth redistribution for others but not for himself. He slams America’s duly elected president for following his mandate to provide security to the American people. Vatican City and its astonishing wealth and priceless works of art, is a walled fortress. A practiced practitioner of hypocrisy, Francis has disingenuously called for “vigilance against hypocrisy.”
What we wrote in 2016 remains just as true today:
The massive 50-foot-tall, ten-foot thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City, and the Swiss Guard that function as its private military force, were defended by the Rev. James Martin who said:
“The fortifications were built a very long time ago. This pope didn’t build them — and he certainly didn’t build them to keep out poor migrants.”
Fair enough. Then let’s see him tear them down. Count on this: That won’t be happening.
