Liberals Defend MS-13 Gangs
Schumer takes issue on Senate floor with President Trump calling MS-13 gang members “animals”
The simple fact of the matter is that Schumer doesn’t care if he’s defending a gang of machete-wielding rapists, as long as he scores a quick anti-Trump zinger.
Nancy Pelosi flat-out defended the rapists and murderers that make up MS-13 from the President’s harsh rhetoric saying “Calling people animals is not a good thing.”
She said, “There is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person,”
Pelosi said, “So when the president of the United States says about illegal immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity, and worth of every person?”
Wow, what Planet is this nut case from?
Trump tweeted “if Democrats couldn’t bring themselves to stand for the families of MS-13 victims during Trump’s first State of the Union Address, no one should be surprised at their disgusting reaction today. This is who they are.”
The very fact that we are debating this is crazy. The President calls the members of an extremely dangerous criminal gang animals and Liberals and Democrats are upset. What’s next ISIS terrorists are just misunderstood cherubs.
According to the establishment media, it is wrong to describe as “animals” those who rape and beat a 15-year-old girl to death, those who rape and murder with impunity. But if you call a Republican an “animal,” the media accolades of fame and wealth are rained down upon you.
On Wednesday May 16, 2018 President Trump was holding a White House meeting with California lawmakers and sheriffs from several areas of California to discuss California’s Sanctuary State law.
Trump was asked about the gang by Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims when addressing California sanctuary city laws. Mims specifically said, “There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them.”
She made her feelings on California’s Sanctuary State law clear from the very beginning, “Thank you, Mr. President. You know sheriffs in California are now in an untenable situation.”
Sheriff Mims said the law flies in the face of public safety because it dictates which agencies her department can communicate with.
“So here we are stuck in the middle trying to decide. We have federal law, we have state law, and that’s why I welcome Attorney General Sessions’ lawsuit because that will provide us clarity that we need.”
Mims also shared how she has welcomed ICE agents into the Fresno County Jail.
“We didn’t have the staffing to be able to help them figure out who they wanted to talk to so I said come on in.”
Mims said, “the law makes the community less safe because the department is unable to talk to ICE agents about any criminals being released. We can’t do a lot of things other law enforcement agencies can do, and it’s really put us in a bad position.”
President Trump called that a, “Disgrace.”
Sheriff Mims agreed, “It’s a disgrace.”
President Trump said, “We’re working on that, and I think it will all come together because people want it to come together. It’s so ridiculous. The concept that we’ve been talking about. We’ll take care of it, Margaret. Thank you.”
Then the President responded, “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”
“The state of California’s attempt to nullify federal law has sparked a rebellion by patriotic citizens who want their families protected,” said President Trump.
California legislators say the sanctuary state law is designed to protect undocumented immigrants and offer comfort to families living in fear.
On Thursday CNN contributor Ana Navarro blasted President Trump for calling “immigrants” animals during a White House meeting with California lawmakers and sheriffs.
Navarro compared Trump to Hitler for his comments. In fact, over his “animal” remark, Navarro compared to Trump to the Nazis. “Trump is in very bad company,” Navarro Tweeted “Nazis referred to Jews as “rats”. Slave-owners viewed slaves as “sub-human animals.” .
But then someone found this old Navarro tweet — calling President Trump an animal.
On October 9, 2016, just weeks prior to Trump’s upset presidential victory, Ana Navarro of CNN tweeted the following from her verified Twitter account, “Should Donald Trump drop out of the race? Yes. He should drop out of the human race. He is an animal. Apologies to animals.”
Navarro is an immigrant who was born in Nicaragua in 1971. She and her family moved to the United States in 1980, because of political turmoil in that country. Just maybe she should pay some attention to what is going on in her home country today.
Watching our esteemed establishment media this week, as they fell all over themselves sputtering fake news and faux outrage over President Trump’s “animal” remarks is ajoke. First, we were treated to the obligatory and predictable lies, with story after story spreading the false claim that Trump had described all immigrants as “animals.”
Then, after that lie had been spread around the world, the truth finally forced the media to retract and acknowledge Trump was referring only to a vicious gang of unrepentant rapists and murderers.
Even after these retractions, we had to listen to the sanctimonious riffs from the media about how it is still wrong to “dehumanize” a gang of organized rapists and murderers as “animals.”
Once again our media has revealed themselves to be liars and hypocrites, but also con artists who fabricate the rules as they go along. If it is handy at the time to beat Trump over the head with a just-invented rule about the use of the word “animals,” that is what the media does.
The Associated Press, New York Times, Washington Post, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News and CNN all published misleading pieces of content that failed to mention Trump was speaking about MS-13.
The AP issued a tweet correcting its error, and CNN also clarified its initial report. The other news organizations? Not so much.
Several news organizations have refused to correct wildly misleading reports that took a comment made by President Trump out of context, even after other organizations such as the Associated Press have issued corrections.
CBS declined to comment, NBC did not respond. ABC did not clarifiy its tweet that claimed Trump referred to “some who cross the border illegally as ‘animal.’”
The New York Times did post the full video and noting, “Several reporters and news outlets, including The New York Times, had posted remarks on Twitter, noting that they had been made about unauthorized immigrants, but without saying that the president had specifically referred to MS-13.”
The Washington Post is firmly standing by its reporting. Fox News, pointed out that the Post’s article states Trump was talking about “deporting those here illegally who commit violent crimes,” although the paper’s story makes no mention of the ruthless gang that Trump was actually talking about.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders stood by President Trump’s comments on Thursday, saying the term “animal” isn’t harsh enough to describe the dangerous gang members.
Sarah Sanders reiterated the sentiment in the White House press briefing, saying “This is one of the most vicious and deadly gangs that operates by the motto of rape, control and kill,” Sanders said, “Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough. MS-13 has done heinous acts. It took an animal to stab a man 100 times and decapitate him and rip his heart out. It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking with a bat, 28 times, indenting part of her body. And it took an animal to kidnap and rape a 13-year-old Houston girl.”
Sanders concluded, saying “The president should continue to use this platform and everything he can do under the law to stop these kinds of horrible, horrible, disgusting people.”
