Walls Don’t Work? Then Why Did Dems Build GIANT Wall to Protect Their 2016 National Convention?

The idea that walls “don’t work” is fundamentally erroneous, and nothing more than a political talking point.

Nearly to a person, Democrats today are blabbering that “walls don’t work” to prevent President Donald Trump from getting a “win” on the budget. But, if “walls don’t work,” why did the Democrats build a giant wall to keep protesters away from their 2016 national convention?

Apparently, the walls the Democrats built around the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia in 2016 was the sort of border security that they could sign onto.

Of course, the Democrats were really trying to keep out undesirables. And by that they meant Bernie Sanders supporters.

Many of the protesters who gathered outside of the barrier were supporters of Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Some Democrats, like Brady Brassfield, told WJLA they felt “cheated” after seeing the extensive security constructed by the DNC.

“They don’t want to hear what we want to say or see what we have out here, really,” Brassfield said.

No doubt, Mr. Brassfield.

The Democrats also did not want to hear what Bernie Sanders had to say in 2016, either. It was all about the coronation of Hillary Clinton, so contrary views were not wanted.

Indeed, the Democrats went nuts on security for their 2016 convention. The Party actually erected about four miles of fencing in concentric stages to keep the riff-raff out of their august presence.

In July of 2016, for instance, The Observer wrote:

Much has been made of the gigantic four-mile wall that the security people have built to shield DNC attendees from the robust protests taking place throughout Philadelphia. Even People magazine noted that high-profile supporters of Bernie Sanders cannot get anywhere near the delegates they’re hoping to influence and several have been arrested trying to scale the 8-foot fence that rings not just the stadium proper, but a giant area outside the stadium.
According to the US Secret Service, it was a nearly unprecedented effort to shield convention-goers from the riffraff. Special Agent James Henry told NBC10.com that it would include “no-scale fencing to enclose the Wells Fargo Center and Xfinity Live!”

What may look like a boring story about securing an area during a naturally contentious event is of course irresistible because of the irony of the Democrats, who have made sport of Donald Trump’s focus on building a wall on America’s southern border, being protected by a wall surrounding their convention.

I would say hypocrisy, as opposed to irony.

VIDEO: Biden Comes Unglued When Fox News Reporter Asks Him About Ukrainian Scandal

Not a good look for you, bro!!

You have to hand it to Joe Biden. When confronted about his alleged Ukrainian scandal, the former VP dodged, deflected, and blamed President Trump like he had that card up his sleeve the entire time. Check this out… From Fox News: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden exploded on Saturday when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted him over his Ukraine scandal, claiming that he did nothing wrong and that the media should be looking into President Donald Trump. Doocy’s question for Biden centered around Biden’s admission that he used his position as Vice President to shut down a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company that was employing Biden’s son. Doocy pondered, “Mr. Vice President, how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Biden screeched, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. And here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, you should be looking at Trump.” But there’s a problem… https://twitter.com/dmartosko/status/1175480222164160512?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175480222164160512&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1175471237138485249?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175471237138485249&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra Trump weighed in… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1175392716110401543?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175392716110401543&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump…

WATCH: Biden Wants to Put Male Prisoners Who Identify As Women In Prison With Female Convicts

Hmm. What could be the problem there!?

With each passing day, Democrats become sillier and sillier. Saturday appeared to belong to Joe Biden, who may or may not still be the liberal party frontrunner. Check out Joe’s thoughts on mentally ill male convicts who think they are women… Joe Biden – Male convicts that identify as female will be housed with women. “In prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is not what in fact the prison says it is.” https://twitter.com/DaveNYviii/status/1175229023603089409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175229023603089409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwoke-joe-biden-says-put-male-prisoners-who-identify-as-women-into-female-prison-pop-because-thats-totally-sane-video%2F Check out this story Biden swears by, even though it is completely made up… From Daily Wire: Last Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden told a rapt audience in New Hampshire a poignant story revolving around a Navy captain who rappelled down a 60-foot ravine to rescue a fallen comrade, but rebuffed Biden’s attempt to pin a Silver Star on his chest because his daring actions to save the soldier came too late. There was one problem: Biden made the story up. The Washington Post reports that Biden told the story of a four-star general who asked Biden, when he was vice-president, to take a dangerous trip to Kunar province in Afghanistan so he could put the Silver Star on the chest of a Navy captain who had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and brought back the body of an American soldier. […] Addressing the silent crowd, Biden concluded, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.” Liar, liar, pants on fire. It’s time for Joe to concede. That’s saying something, considering this guy was the Democrat frontrunner. It’s looking more and more grim for the former VP who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama.
