We know the left loves hyperbole, but this is ridiculous, even for them.
Cynthia Nixon, the actress best known for her role on the TV show Sex and the City, has decided to pull a Schwartzenegger and to throw her hat into the ring for the New York governor’s race, for some reason. Most likely because she, like so many other leftist celebrities with an inability to stay in their lane, thinks she can make a difference with name recognition alone.
Nixon, who has little chance of beating incumbent Andrew Cuomo, must have figured she might as well go full leftie drama queen when she made her recent timely comments on Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.
She called the agency which enforces our border a “terrorist organization”, because why not?
“ICE has strayed so far from its mission,” she said in a recent television interview. “It’s supposed to be here to keep Americans safe, but what it’s turned into is frankly a terrorist organization of its own that is terrorizing people who are coming to this country.”
Actually, Cynthia, ICE is keeping Americans safe. I know you’re running for governor of a country that shares a border with Canada, not Mexico, but the Southern Border has long been a hotbed of not only illegal immigration, but drug, weapons, and even human trafficking.
We all know how often ICE likes to cut the beating heart out of their victims and lives by the motto “Rape, Kill, Control,” right? Oh wait…that’s not ICE. That’s MS-13.
The powerful, inconceivable violent and destructive gang that is empowered by the lenient enforcement of our Southern border.
By doing their job, ICE is helping to deter the flow of violent gang members and the goods they sell to grow their organization. Yeah, it’s probably pretty terrible to be detained by ICE when you were hoping to break across the border without legal repercussions.
But I’d take that any day over a run-in with MS-13. If you feel differently, Cynthia, maybe you should run for governor of Baja California Norte instead.
