Democrats know The Wall is imminent. Is their pending dread of it more psychologically damaging to them than would be the actual erection of The Wall?
Democrats know The Wall is the issue that finally will break them, and no amount of Democrat Media-Industrial Complex agitprop will ever tear down The Wall. It will be the chasm between the old guard and the burgeoning Leninism within the party.
The Wall is deserving of proper name capitalization.
The Democrats know The Wall will achieve its intent of deterring and preventing mass illegal immigration—immigration that has resulted in an illegal alien population of which the federal government cannot even get an accurate count.
The Wall will be the physical affirmation of our historic, black swan, glass-ceiling shattering 2016 win over Hillary Clinton. Tax reform and withdrawals from bogus deals with Iran along with climate change globalist welfare treaties aren’t, by themselves, palpable to voters. I can’t take a selfie in front of the 2018 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. United States Supreme Court justices are a bit more tangible, but the court isn’t omnipresent in the lives of citizens.
The Wall, though? That proposed happy marriage of steel, spikes and concrete? Oh, it will be glorious. I know President Trump has described The Wall as “beautiful,” but we don’t care if it’s the ugly Christmas sweater of American architecture.
The Wall Will Save Lives and Money
Want to know how padded-rubber-room inducing The Wall is for Democrats? Trump has convinced fiscal conservatives to spend money and Democrats have talked about saving money.
The Wall is Mount Rushmore and AR-15s and the Electoral College and the Gadsden Flag all in one. It is a watchtower and a monument to sovereignty, an homage to citizens, law enforcement officers—all Americans—who not only have to worry about American criminals murdering them, but now must worry about criminals here illegally, as well. Ignore the Democrats and Mitt Romneys of America, who prattle on about about xenophobia and “who we are”; fear along with greed are the bases for every human decision.
Am I afraid of crimes being committed against me and my family from those who shouldn’t be here? Damn right I am—and if most of the spineless politicians in Washington acted with a little more respect for fear, Kate Steinle, Mollie Tibbetts, and Ronil Singh likely would be alive today. Singh, a California police officer killed by an illegal alien in the line of duty last month, emigrated from Fiji, a country that I bet is safer than the Golden State.
I wouldn’t care if “only” one person died annually because of illegal immigration, and would not care if “only” one illegal border crossing occurred annually; but the cult of the Democrats’ gun confiscation sales pitch has always been that it’s worth doing even if it only “saves one life.”
Weird, then, that they claim to believe a vote to fund The Wall and end the government shutdown is either immoral or folly. If The Wall saves one life (and it likely will save many more), and saves even the smallest percentage of the annual $116 billion illegal alien financial burden, then break ground today. Just keep hammering the point to all your Democrat friends and relatives: “But if it saves one life,” “But if it saves one life,” “One life…”
And, GOP, are you listening? Especially those of you who are zealous open-borders Tessio-style Republicans—those of you who have continued to betray your voters the way Sal Tessio betrayed the Corleone family in The Godfather.
The Democrats know The Wall will work. Beto knows it. Elizabeth Warren knows it. Kamala Harris knows it; so does Cory Booker. And Joe Biden knows, too. The Wall will accelerate the cannibalization within the Democratic Party, between the establishment, which consists mostly of covert Leninists, and the new school Dems, who are unabashedly open about their collectivist fetish. The Wall is the Bolsheviks overthrowing Czar Nicholas II, and will usher in the Democrats’ version of the Russian Revolution. It will be some sight to behold; recommended viewing beverage is a “Build That Wall” cocktail. Yes, such a drink exists.
The entrenched Democratic and Republican parties can’t stand the fact that a reality television star president will do more to curb illegal immigration and the ills it has begotten than all their combined lousy efforts.
How much will The Wall cost? A lot of moola—$25 billion, maybe more. Is it worth it? Sure is. Am I concerned Mexico won’t pay for it? Nope.
Admittedly, I’m not thrilled about all aspects of The Wall, such as the expected eminent domain, which could displace hundreds of landowners. Since these property owners will be an integral part of history, let’s compensate them with triple the market value of their property.
The Wall Makes or Breaks 2020
The Wall is a black and white policy issue for Trump. He knows he can’t cave to the Democrats; if he acquiesces, read my lips: Clinton will be the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nominee, and she will win.
But worry not. There’s no going back now.
The Wall isn’t anti-immigrant; in fact, it might be the most pro-immigrant expenditure in American history—a ubiquitous reminder that America is the most generous nation in the history of the world—which admits two legal immigrants every minute, of every day—and will welcome with open arms those who adhere to our rule of law. American nationalism is the glue that holds this whole experiment together.
Some presidents want freeways, hospitals, and airports named after them. Not our president. The Donald J. Trump Great Wall of America is what he wants, and it’s what the majority of people in the majority of states want. Time to get this “elections have consequences” party started.
Build that wall, Mr. President. Build it high, build it wide; build it tall, as tall as the sky. Our only regret about The Wall will be that it’s not visible from outer space.
