Sweet. I hope President Trump sees this…
I quite enjoy these comics when you point out establishment dem hypocrisy, Branco. It’s a shame it’s for the wrong reasons, but I’ll take what I can get.
I’m a bit surprised you guys are upvoting me, so uh.. thanks? I’m going to take this opportunity to be uncomfortable and point out many “illegals” just fly over the border and overstay their visas. Makes this wall farce immensely amusing to watch
Conservatives are often blamed for “tearing the country apart.” But there are three ways to “tear something apart”: pulling from the left and the right; pulling from the left and holding fast on the right; and pulling from the right and holding fast on the left.
Border security is a perfect example of an issue in which it can be plainly seen which side is pulling and which side is holding fast. As the cartoon points out and makes clear, conservatives are holding fast (as they do, or mostly do – they have a tendency to drift to the left, making it clear that both sides are not pulling in different directions) and it is the left that is doing the pulling. Who is tearing the country apart?
This is from Howie Carr at the Boston Herald:
Barack Obama, 2005: “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the U.S. undocumented, undetected, unchecked, circumventing the people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”
Hillary Clinton, 2014: “I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in and I do think you have to control your borders.”
Sen. Chuck Schumer, 2009: “People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the U.S. legally. The American people will never accept immigration reform unless they truly believe that their government is committed to ending future illegal immigration.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 2008: “We do need to address the issue of immigration and the challenge we have of undocumented people in our country. We certainly do not want any more coming in.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders, 2007: “I don’t know why we need millions of people to be coming into the country who will work for lower wages than American workers and drives wages down even lower than they are right now.”
Ex-Sen. Harry Reid, 1993: “If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal alien? No sane country would do that, right? Guess again … (If you’re an illegalimmigrant who gives birth in the U.S. you can go on welfare immediately.) Is it any wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at taxpayer expense in the county-run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers?”
Democratic Party platform 1996: “We cannot tolerate illegal immigration and we must stop it … (At the border before Bill Clinton) drugs flowed freely. Illegal immigration was rampant. Criminal immigrants, deported after committing crimes in America, returned the very next day to commit crimes again. … We continue to firmly oppose welfare benefits for illegal immigrants. We believe family members who sponsor immigrants into this country should take financial responsibility for them, and be held legally responsible for supporting them.”
That was then…This is now. Branco hits another homer.
Does anyone else look at the url for the image, and see its real name, the file name so to speak?
Pro-Waller! Love it Mr. Branco
