Texas Republican Takes Bizarre, Anti-Humanitarian Stance on Border Crisis

Now, however, it seems as though this “resistance at all costs” schtick is spreading to the GOP as well.

There is strange and uncouth disconnect occurring on the left side of American politics as it pertains to the reality of the situation at the border.

You see, the liberals love to play the “bleeding heart” card, using their outward-facing “compassion” in order to claim the moral high ground on any number of issues, regardless of their stance politically.  At no other time in history has this been more true than it is now, as the left continents to wallow in the mud in ways that few other political parties could dare dream to.

In the name of “resistance”, the left will do and say that darnedest things.  One needn’t look any further than the horrific and erroneous treatment of a young high schooler in recent days, as the leftist media selectively edited several videos and photographs in order paint the teenager as some sort of supreme bigot, in order to get a sense of their classless, baseless attacks.

Now, however, it seems as though this “resistance at all costs” schtick is spreading to the GOP as well.

Texas Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican, is familiar with the country’s southern border; his district spans more than 800 miles of it. But when it comes to a border wall, Hurd isn’t fully on board.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Hurd, 41, denied President Trump’s claim there is a “crisis” at the border, calling it a “myth” and contending a concrete wall is a “3rd-century solution to a 21st-century problem.”

“This is an issue that has transcended multiple administrations. I think $67 billion of drugs coming into our country is a crisis. Now, I also think when you think of a crisis that means people are afraid to leave their homes, right?” Hurd told the magazine. “El Paso is one of the safest cities in the United States of America. The same can be said about Del Rio, Presidio and Eagle Pass, places I represent.”

“When I crisscross my district, the thing I hear the most, people are like, ‘We need workers.’ Whether it’s agriculture or artificial intelligence, we need workers. Why aren’t we also talking about streamlining this immigration process so that we get people here legally who are going to contribute to our economy?” he continued. “It’s a problem that needs to be solved. I think it requires us to be cool, level-headed and talk about these solutions.”

What is so utterly disturbing about Hurd’s comments are that they completely ignore the near-constant stream of tragic news that we receive from the border.

Children, as well as adults, are literally dying after choosing to take a massive march through Mexico in order to reach America, via legal or illegal immigration.  These tragedies are real, and comments such as those by Congressman Hurd completely ignore the human consequences of such actions.

Hurd has effectively determined that these lives do not matter, just so long as he gets a chance to vilify the President of the United States.

REVEALED: Photo Emerges Showing Liberal Canadian Prime Minister In ‘Brownface’ (Details)

Imagine if he was conservative…

Virginia’s Democrat governor, Ralph Northam, was busted for past photos showing him wearing “blackface.” Nothing happened. Northam still holds office. On Wednesday, at least one photo emerged of radically far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in “brownface.” LOOK: NEW: Justin Trudeau Wore Brownface at 2001 ‘Arabian Nights’ Party While He Taught at a Private School https://twitter.com/yashar/status/1174455955737776129?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174455955737776129&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-blackface-photos-emerge-of-canadas-prime-minister-justin-trudeau%2F From Time: Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, wore brownface makeup to a party at the private school where he was teaching in the spring of 2001. TIME has obtained a photograph of the incident. The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened. The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher. Earlier this month, TIME obtained a copy of the yearbook, The View, with the photograph of Trudeau in brownface from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community. Adamson was not at the party, which was attended by school faculty, administrators and parents of students. He said that he first saw the photograph in July and felt it should be made public. Justin’s reaction: https://twitter.com/PnPCBC/status/1174480007881744385?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174480007881744385&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F https://twitter.com/PnPCBC/status/1174480742203711488?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174480742203711488&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F https://twitter.com/iD4RO/status/1174480977382576129?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174480977382576129&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F Trudeau should not have to resign and Northam shouldn’t have had to, either. The problem is that if these beta males were conservatives, they would’ve been forced to resign. That’s the difference. That’s the problem.

RNC Raises Record Amount of Cash, Then Trolls Dems On Kavanaugh Impeachment Push

Sounds like a good day at the office!!

Raising money and trolling Democrats? That’s an easy win-win for Republicans. Both of those things happened on Wednesday. From Daily Wire: The Republican National Committee (RNC) had some good news for President Trump this week about its historic fundraising efforts — and some fun with Democrats in the process over their “help” with the GOP’s surge in donations and the Dems’ doomed “impeach Brett Kavanaugh” strategy. […] Together, the Trump campaign and RNC have brought in an impressive $210 million since the start of 2019, which is “more than all the current Democrats seeking to replace Trump raised combined during that period,” Fox notes. The RNC smashed another fundraising record last month. Between @realDonaldTrump’s accomplishments and our grassroots infrastructure, Republicans are going to be unstoppable in 2020! https://twitter.com/GOPChairwoman/status/1174310576228589568?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174310576228589568&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51938%2Frnc-announces-record-setting-fundraising-haul-james-barrett To all the Democrats who demonize half the country… To all the Hollywood liberals who want us boycotted… It’s because of you that @realDonaldTrump’s team is raising over $15 MILLION in California. Thank you! https://twitter.com/GOPChairwoman/status/1174087336013029379?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174087336013029379&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51938%2Frnc-announces-record-setting-fundraising-haul-james-barrett “’Innocent until proven guilty’ no longer applies. Republicans are guilty of whatever Democrats accuse them of, and when the evidence comes up short, we are still ‘not exonerated.’” – @LizRNC https://twitter.com/GOPChairwoman/status/1173992845704908800?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173992845704908800&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51938%2Frnc-announces-record-setting-fundraising-haul-james-barrett
