Sometimes I just get disgusted. Today is one of those times.
This morning I was driving my son to the airport so I had the radio on in the car, which is about the only time I listen to the radio. I was listening to an audio “clip” of President Trump saying, “We have people coming into the country or trying to come in, we’re stopping a lot of them, but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.”
Of course, the media is going nuts! They are only reporting the above portion of what he said which is taking it out of context and completely spinning the statement. In actuality, President Trump was in a meeting with a group of California leaders who are very worried about the current situation and don’t want to be a part of the sanctuary city/state program the leftist communists are pushing on them. Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims was telling that even if they – the police/sheriff – think someone in their jail is connected to or a part of MS13 and are here illegally, they can’t tell ICE.
It was to this statement that President Trump made his statement, in essence agreeing with her that there is a huge problem and it has to be dealt with. According to Wikipedia, “MS13 stands for Mara Salvatrucha. MS-13 is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles, California, in the 1980s. The gang later spread to many parts of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, and is active in urban and suburban areas. Most members are of Central American origin, principally El Salvador.”
I have never been to El Salvador, nor do I wish to go. But I do know enough about the country that a friend, who was serving there as a missionary, had to live in a gated community and have security protection due to the violence in that country. She told of the wonderful people there who are victims of MS13. But it isn’t just El Salvador. If we’ve paid any attention at all then we know that MS13 is alive and well in the United States, in fact it was born here – in California America – the sanctuary state!
The violence, brutality, rape, murders, robberies and other crimes committed by MS13 are always over the top. They are animals in their mannerisms, in their disregard for life, even in the way they treat their own members. They are a group of people that truly are less than human in morals and dogmas. Yet the media chooses to take out of context a statement that President Trump made, which in my opinion is true, and blow it out of proportion.
What will it take to awaken the media? What will it take to awaken some of the “famous” people that are openly taking the side of these criminals? Will it take their being victims of MS13 or illegals? Or will their families and friends have to suffer as victims before they see how bad these people are? What price will they have to pay before they grow up and realize that President Trump is correct?
We finally have a President that is a man of his word. We finally have a President that is willing to take a stand and I sometimes wonder if there is no one that will stand with him. It is time for the media to tell the truth. If they don’t then the blood spilled by MS13 is, essentially, on their hands. That same blood is on the hands of Congress, if they don’t build the wall, and on all of those who are against the wall and for sanctuary for these criminals.
Personally, I don’t wish ill on anyone, but if it has to happen then I hope it is to the people who are coddling the illegals, the MS13 criminals, the no-wall screamers. No one should have to suffer but someone will. How sad that will be when it could have been prevented had those with the power – that includes the media – done something about it instead of trying to protect them.
They say the pen is mightier than the sword – if MS13 comes against media people I hope their pens are sharp as they will have gotten rid of guns, protective devices, the wall and on and on. But that’s another part of the story!
