Leftists get tough supporting invasion
After watching caravans of hundreds of thousands of Central Americans plow through our sovereign border, the far left has become so acclimated to the illegal invasion they are willing to take on law enforcement officers and risk arrest to protect those who hold this country and the rule of law in contempt.
We witnessed this distortion as a reported 100+ people assembled in downtown Phoenix to protest the planned roundup of illegal aliens by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers slated to begin today.
Two of the 16 protesters who were arrested in downtown Phoenix face charges of aggravated assault on a police officer after they attempted to prevent officers from arresting other participants. Protesters filled the streets and blocked traffic following a rally at a local church. They also blocked the light-rail tracks, bringing traffic to a standstill.
This is emblematic of the topsy-turvy world in which we live, where students are systematically dumbed down, given scant instruction in American history and taught that we are an aggressor nation — made even worse by a capitalistic system — which, in fact, separates us from the harsh realities of Socialism such as the people of Cuba and Venezuela endure.
In Arizona last year, Gov. Doug Ducey rewarded teachers with a 20% raise for their part time jobs, as they embarked on a week-long strike and abandoned, in violation of their contractual agreements, an estimated 840,000 Arizona students.
This past Thursday, traffic on Tempe’s Mill Avenue Bridge was shut down and three women were arrested as protesters from Black Lives Matter railed against police.
On the Fourth of July a reprehensible incident occurred in a Tempe Starbucks, when a barista asked police officers to leave the premises because a customer complained of feeling “unsafe” with officers in the establishment. Several of those officers were veterans who had fought for our country.
In an increasingly hostile environment, police officers put their lives on the line every day as they leave their families to go to work, where they often have to make split-second decisions, and are now routinely covered by an antagonistic media.
Jeri Williams, the weak Phoenix Police Chief, has given increased authority to a citizen review board to second guess officer’s decisions. Though she’s swore to uphold the law, Williams does give her unequivocal support to so-called “Dreamers” — saying she “supports policies” that allow the unverifiable claims of illegals to lawfully remain in the USA. Those “polices” are known as amnesty.
