Security for me but not for thee.
Ask any Democrat how they feel about Trump’s proposed border wall and you’ll be met with outrage. According to most liberals, such a concept is racist, xenophobic and utterly unnecessary.
Building a wall doesn’t solve anything . . . unless it’s used to protect delegates and other high ranking officials in the Democratic Party.
NBC News in Philadelphia reports:
Wells Fargo Center, Xfinity Live! to Be Inside DNC Security Perimeter
Security at the Sports Complex during the Democratic National Convention next month will include “no-scale fencing” to enclose the Wells Fargo Center and Xfinity Live!, the Secret Service special agent in charge said in an interview Thursday.
But exact boundaries of the security perimeter around the sports arena, where the convention will take place July 25-28, are not yet finalized, Special Agent James Henry told NBC10.com.
“We’re not quite there to talk about the perimeter yet,” Henry said. “We’re probably a couple weeks away from finalizing that. But expect some closures.”
Unsurprisingly, the area which has been set aside for protesters is outside the security perimeter.
FDR Park, which is across South Broad Street from the arena, has been designated a protest zone by the city. Pro-Bernie Sanders protesters have secured permits to demonstrate from Sunday through Thursday of the DNC week. In applying for those permits, protest organizers estimated up to 30,000 people could take part.

People are starting to take note of the hypocrisy, even some Senate Republicans.
The Hill reports:
Sessions knocks ‘wall’ around Dem convention
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) knocked Hillary Clinton’s immigration policies Friday, amid reports that a “wall” will be built around the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.
“It’s interesting that the Democratic National Committee will have a wall around their convention to keep unapproved people out while at the same time, their presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton, pushes for open borders policies that are even more radical than President Obama’s,” Sessions said in a statement Friday.
Special Agent James Henry told a local NBC station that the Wells Fargo Center and Xfinity Live! would be enclosed in “no-scale fencing” as part of the convention’s security measures.
Sessions added Friday that “Clinton and the DNC don’t hesitate to use walls and guns for protecting themselves and their elite friends. I say it’s time to provide such protection to the at-risk people like Kate Steinle, and Clinton not understanding this will lead to her defeat.”
If it weren’t for double standards, Democrats wouldn’t have any.
