The Guardian, CBC News, Reuters and others also reported increasing amounts of people crossing from New York State into Canada, and that the Canadian military was tasked in August to erect tents to accommodate this rush of refugees. However - and here’s the devilish details that fake news outlets love to gloss over - it turns out that almost 100% of these refugees are Haitian citizens living in the US on temporary immigration visas granted them after the devastating 2010 Haitian earthquake, and fearful their visas may expire at the end of this year they are making another move northward. Well, whaddya know, not a word about natural-born US citizens attempting to flee. Why? Because there are none; no evidence at all of disaffected Americans seeking safe haven in the land of free (or so everyone wrongly believes) healthcare. Yet, given the current polarizing political environment and the (mostly Left-wing) media’s penchant for hysterical propaganda about the Trump administration, that was surely the intended tone of these articles.
Listen; don’t get me wrong, I don’t necessarily have a problem with refugees fleeing their birth country in the face of devastating natural disasters or man-made disruptions. I’m an immigrant myself - though by choice rather than need. But that’s not what this article is about, nor is it what's being portrayed in mainstream media. Instead, we have far too much hyperventilating from the Left's talking heads about how the end of the world is surely nigh with Trump at the helm of the government. And, in case they need to be reminded, the Left’s constant holier-than-thou, elitist attitude is not only insulting a wide swath of good, honest, down-to-earth, law-abiding, just-leave-me-the-hell-alone citizens, who sort-of like the way things are and don’t really want to see traditional values tossed aside by the progressive wing of society, it’s very likely going to lead to confrontations; kind-of like someone who kicks a cornered dog shouldn’t be surprised if they get bit.
How do we fix this? Let’s start by the Left practicing their oft-stated values of inclusion and acceptance. They’re always reminding us that everyone has a place in society – well, make sure that applies to us on the Right, their political opponents, and not just the causes they happen to agree with. Next, let’s demand the media take its job seriously by reporting all of the facts of a story – not just the ones that conveniently fit their editorial outlook. Lastly, we all need to take a breather and contemplate the consequences of not fixing this growing social divide; you know, compromise on both sides won’t mean the end of the world. Finally, let’s expect – but allow - our elected leaders to do their jobs. The voters’ sacred right to choose must never be overturned without cause so let's drop this talk of impeachment. Having said that if our representatives don’t do the job we expect of them then let's vote them out of office and start again.
