How Cute: Cards Against Humanity Purchases Border Property To Stop Wall

Once again, I’ll reiterate that I’m not a big fan of a border length wall. We can have a wall in certain areas, with human patrols in the rest, and do many other things that dissincentivize illegals from coming and staying. This, though, is just virtue signaling

(Business Insider) The company behind the popular card game “Cards Against Humanity” says it has purchased vacant land along the US-Mexico border in an attempt to block the construction of President Trump’s proposed border wall.

The card-game company has promised a map of the land and six other “surprises” to anyone who donates $15 to its campaign to “save America.”

The map and other promised items will be delivered to donors’ homes in December, according to a website devoted to the campaign.

Within seven hours of the campaign’s launch, the “surprise” packages were sold out, according to USA Today.

“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans,” the company says on its website. “He is so afraid that he wants to build a $20 billion wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.”

Well, good luck with that, guys. Especially if you do not develop the land. But, then, this is really just being #Resist, virtue signaling, and, let’s face it, a really spiffy marketing campaign to sell their weird product in the leadup to Christmas.

    If I owned the land surrounding theirs on the U.S. side, I’d be happy to let the wall be built along that property line.

    I bet El Presidente for Life will come down hard on them for insulting him! He’ll sic the DOJ on them, not to mention the IRS!

    An aside… If you get the chance, play “Cards Against Humanity” with your adult friends. It’s a riot. A few drinks don’t hurt either.

  4. Two words: Eminent Domain

    Look them up Cards Against Humanity.

    If walls do nothing, why do rich elitists live behind them. Oh and jeff, odummer is no longer president.

  6. Michele Delo says:

    Ah, but lawfare works both ways. If the wall is built with an attractive gap across their property, the resulting locus of crime and violence might spark lawsuits that leave CAH paying out more than they’ll want to pay. Adjacent owners, get the drones up, perimeter monitored and attorneys ready. And popcorn.

    They’re lying idiots.
    Unfortunately for them, whatever they purchase, a 60′-wide contiguous strip alongside the border from the Pacific ocean to the Gulf Coast, as well as from Maine to Seattle and along the Alaska border, is public domain, and the feds can put anything they damned well please there, and even declare an access easement through your land to get to it if needs be, and the landowner can do jack and squat in reply.

    All they’re doing by buying border land is preserving habitat for mojados to cross through, and paying someone glad to dump the land for the privilege.

    The feds can and will build any walls right on through, and the roadway to patrol it, and there’s not one thing any owner can do about it.

  8. Jeffery says:

    And to think the Cons used to oppose eminent domain.

    “Donald Trump, who is afraid of Mexicans…”. I guess they forgot to mention that must mean Mexicans are afraid of Guatemalans as they have a wall on their southern border

    Hope this doesn’t come across as a threadjacking, I don’t mean for it to be. But until this point I had an impression the pro-wall and anti-wall people were simply talking past each other; now I’m sure of it.

    Many’s the time I’ve heard pro-wall advocates sum up their position exactly the way you just did. A wall where it makes sense to have one, something else where it makes sense to do something else. It is, after all, a lengthy stretch and I’m not aware of anyone who’s said it’s all compatible, every single yard of it, with an actual wall. Which it isn’t.
