According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “New York Times op-ed writer calls for public shaming of US Border Patrol agents.”
Ahh yes, “the failing” New York Times, as President Trump likes to say.
“A human rights professor called for the identities of U.S. Border Patrol agents to be made public so they can be ‘shamed’ for the mistreatment of migrants, saying a ‘mass atrocity’ may be taking place.”
“Kate Cronin-Furman, an assistant professor of human rights at University College London, wrote in the New York Times over the weekend that Border Patrol and other federal agents must be pressured into ending their participation.”
Okay…, I’ve got all kinds of problems with this guest op-ed writer.
First of all, she’s not even from the United States!
Second of all, she’s a college professor, an assistant professor actually, a profession otherwise known as a liberal activist and propagandist!
And lastly, she has a hyphenated name.
She wants to “shame” our border agents, as well as make their identities public, because of their “mistreatment of migrants?”
Exactly what kind of “mistreatment” are you accusing them of Ms. Cronin-Furman?
These agents are dealing with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants every month, and I haven’t heard of any cases of “mistreatment.”
They are just doing their job according to the law, as handed down by our dysfunctional houses of elected morons.
In fact…, I hear more cases of them going above and beyond what’s required of them.
I would contend that our congressional representatives have a much harder time doing their jobs, while causing much more pain and suffering to actual American citizens in our country.
These aren’t mean people, Ms. Cronin-Furman…, not like you and your liberal propagandist friends.
‘“The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable,’ she wrote.”
Oh really? Could I just mention that YOUR personal information and the personal information of all of YOUR comrades is also “not undiscoverable.”
‘“Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos. These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities,’ she added.”
Lawyers and “journalists.” Now there’s a motley crew for you!
“Cronin-Furman claimed she was not making ‘an argument for doxxing’ but wants to see an effort to expose the ‘midlevel functionaries who make the system run.’”
What a disingenuous liar.
So you say you’re not making “an argument for doxxing,” but on the other hand you’re calling for the publication of their personal information. What do you think doxxing is?
Just another typical fascist liberal calling out to other fascist liberals.
‘“The knowledge, for instance, that when you go to church on Sunday, your entire congregation will have seen you on TV ripping a child out of her father’s arms is a serious social cost to bear. The desire to avoid this kind of social shame may be enough to persuade some agents to quit and may hinder the recruitment of replacements,’ she argued.”
The problem is Ms. Cronin-Furman…, how do you know the arms the child is being taken from is their father’s arms?
Are you aware Ms. Cronin-Furman that it is becoming more and more common for children to be used just to cross the border?
Are you aware Ms. Cronin-Furman that in many cases these children are not traveling with their families?
So in all actuality, the picture you want to publicize is more likely to be a border agent RESCUING a child from a human trafficker or worse.
For someone who is an assistant professor of human rights, you seem more interested in promoting the liberal agenda than “human rights.”
‘“For someone who is ‘just following orders,’ the prospect of being internationally shamed as a rights abuser and being unable to travel freely may be significant enough to persuade them to stop participating.’”
Wow! You’re just full of great ideas aren’t you, Ms. Cronin-Furman?!
Again…, these border agents are just people doing their job, and it’s a dangerous job…, and it’s a thankless job…, and these media hustlers just want to make their job even more difficult, and expose them and their families to additional harassment at home.
According to American Military News, “During Obama’s two-term presidency, from 2008 to 2016, border deaths ranged from 251 to 471 each year. The 471 deaths occurred in 2012, and that is the second highest number of border deaths in the last 20 years. In the first two years of Trump’s presidency, border deaths have actually decreased [per Border Patrol data].”
I don’t recall hearing any outage during Obama’s presidency. I don’t recall hearing one word about it actually. Nothing.
So what changed?
We all know “what” changed Ms. Cronin-Furman.
We all know what changed.
And it wasn’t your concern about “human rights.”
And it wasn’t your concern about these migrant children and families.
