Thousands of scary people are pouring over our unsecured southern border to kill us all and destroy our democracy. Which clearly isn’t being destroyed by corrupt people already here and in power. Or by the outrageously powerful corporations pulling the strings of those in power. Or by the lobbyists buying influence over those in power.
No, it’s the scary people pouring over our border. We must fear them and build a wall. They are definitely democracy-destroying, drug-packing, murderous, evil people who will first milk the system dry and then rape and kill all US born citizens. They will definitely not work menial jobs on farms, harvesting the food that feeds America, or other such helpful and important labor. No, they will steal YOUR job! They will steal YOUR tax dollars. And don’t get me started on ISIS and Hezbollah sneaking over our massive, dangerously porous southern border. Oh my.
But, it’s okay. We’ve got a national emergency now so we can build a wall that will certainly stop those intent on committing a crime in our country. Everything will be just fine. I mean, we don’t need the Constitution anyway, right? We certainly don’t need rational thought, compassion, cooperation, decency, or any sort of immigration reform. Nope, we need a wall! And maybe a few camps where we can safely store all those scary people. Put them to work and starve them and stuff.
I mean these are seriously, scary, scary people crossing that border. Not at all like our political leaders. And certainly nothing like our own ancestors.
