‘Climate Change’ Is The Driver Of The Migrant Caravan Mob Or Something

It’s like the UK Guardian spun a wheel of things to link to Hotcoldwetdry

The unseen driver behind the migrant caravan: climate change

Thousands of Central American migrants trudging through Mexico towards the US have regularly been described as either fleeing gang violence or extreme poverty.

But another crucial driving factor behind the migrant caravan has been harder to grasp: climate change.

Most members of the migrant caravans come from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador – three countries devastated by violence, organised crime and systemic corruption, the roots of which can be traced back to the region’s cold war conflicts.

Experts say that alongside those factors, climate change in the region is exacerbating – and sometimes causing – a miasma of other problems including crop failures and poverty.

And they warn that in the coming decades, it is likely to push millions more people north towards the US.

“The focus on violence is eclipsing the big picture – which is that people are saying they are moving because of some version of food insecurity,” said Robert Albro, a researcher at the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies at American University.

“The main reason people are moving is because they don’t have anything to eat. This has a strong link to climate change – we are seeing tremendous climate instability that is radically changing food security in the region.”

Well, that’s a bummer, because ‘climate change’ is not covered by U.S. asylum laws. Of course, this entire premise is a bunch of mule fritters, but, that’s never stopped the Cult of Climastrology before.

Migrants don’t often specifically mention “climate change” as a motivating factor for leaving because the concept is so abstract and long-term, Albro said. But people in the region who depend on small farms are painfully aware of changes to weather patterns that can ruin crops and decimate incomes.

So, they don’t mention it? Weird. Fortunately, Warmist elites are there to tell the peons what to think.

Anyway, we can solve this with a tax.

    The “Caravan Mob” are the GOP candidates and their toadies who think the refugees comprise a threat, and the right-wing terrorists crazy enough to believe them.

    The neoNazi who murdered the Tree of Life Synagogue worshipers believed that Jews were bringing in dangerous immigrants to kill white folks.

    “HIAS likes to bring invaders that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optic, I’m going in.”

    It’s a scam, people. And the president is sending 5200 troops to the border to defend against this scam.

    • gitarcarver says:

      Defending the borders and following the rule of law is a “scam.”

      I would love to discuss that idea, but there is nothing to discuss in that lunacy.

      • Jethro says:

        Scam or political ploy… both are accurate. The actions have no relation to “defending the borders” or “following the rule of law”.

        It’s demagoguery, pure and simple.

        It’s disgusting.

        Your hope, and tRump’s, is that it will get his minions to vote.

        But you are right about one thing, it’s not worth discussing with white nationalists.

        • formwiz says:

          No, it has everything to do with the rule of law, which you hate when it goes against you.

          You want the election overturned because your side lost. You want a good man defamed and ruined because the Supreme Court will not be full i=of Leftist activists. You want the laws of immigration ignored because you can’t win without the illegals.

          Blacks are talking Blexit and you call them Uncle Tom. Kids and Homosexuals WalkAway and you send Antifa after them.

          Hispanics are fed up to the tune of 40%.

          What you’re selling is a scam. I wouldn’t bother wasting my time rebutting all your lies, but I’ve seen how Lefties use unanswered lies.

          I understand how angry you are because next week is going to be Hell and all your schemes blew up.

      Jeff,
      We all know that you are saying very stupid things in order to get attention. But your dismal ignorance is showing, you are not a good troll, is there anything that you know??

      Now on the caravan and illegals or the preferred term “wet backs”, the one who hated these people and came up with the term wet back was Chavez. He actually had people kill folks trying to get into the US. Why?? Because they were disruptive to his union and its plans for a better life for those here. These people violate everything that you desire, unions, better life for the middle class, etc., etc.

      Then as to the Nazi who killed the poor Jews, again, that is your folks, you are the one who loves the ideals of Hitler and his followers. Hitler had the exact same desire for a perfect government as that for which you are fighting for.

      • Jethro says:

        dave,

        You aren’t making any sense.
        Chavez? Hitler? Wetbacks?

        We understand that truth hurts, as it should.

        YOUR tribe is lying that the assembled refugees in southern Mexico are 1) financed by Jews, 2) are motivated to harm “real” Americans, 3) are carrying polio, smallpox and leprosy. YOUR tribe is lying that the US southern border is in imminent danger of being overrun by Central Americans.

        What’s clear is that tRump is trying to light the fuse under his white nationalist/neoNazi base to either win elections or to terrorize the populace. Or both.

        Anyone denying that tRump is using our military for political gain is a fool.

        White nationalists hate immigrants. Period. They hate Jews. They hate Blacks. They hate Muslims. They want a white Christian ethnostate. Q.E.D.

        Stuff your Hitler comparisons up your ass.

        • formwiz says:

          Dr Evil is no Jew, so that’s the first lie.

          You think MS-13 and IS are coming here for the sun and the water sports? Second lie.

          The only truth you tell is the diseases, but you leave out tuberculosis, syphilis gonorrhea, polio, cholera, diphtheria, smallpox, severe acute respiratory syndromes, scabies, chicken pox, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus. Stuff we’d all but readicated.

          Anyone denying that the Left is using the illegals for political gain is a fool.

          White nationalists don’t hate immigrants. Period. They don’t hate Jews. They don’t hate Blacks. Democrats hate them and will turn on them the second they try to escape the plantation. They want a white Leftist ethnostate. Q.E.D.

          • Jethro says:

            You’re full of shit.

            George Soros is Jewish. I don’t know who your mythical Dr. Evil is.

            It’s a lie that MS-13 and ISIS are in the refugee caravan.

            There is no smallpox, you’re full of shit.

            By all means, show your evidence that the other diseases are carried. Someone’s opinion on Google doesn’t count.

            Can you type anything that is actually true?

            White nationalists hate all the groups you list. You’re so full of shit.

        • david7134 says:

          jeff,
          As usual, you are not making sense. It appears that rather than learning something and understanding the origin of you hate, you chose to just maintain a senseless argument. Almost as if you get sexual release from the anger that you engender in others. Unfortunately, most who visit here are much more intellectual than you, better read, and have a firm knowledge of logic and sense than you will ever possess. You are a figure to feel sorry for rather than to try and educate or reason with.

    • formwiz says:

      Jeffery and his friends have been beating this particular drum for years, only to have the facts prove them liars.

      These people bring disease, crime, bad government, mob rule, and increased tax burdens for every American.

      The people murdered in the Tree of Life Synagogue deserve a better epitaph than a cut-rate Jessuh Jackson trying to make political hay over their bodies.

      But, since Jeffery will do it over any body, why should he consider these to be special?

  2. Jl says:

    “The actions have no relation to defending the borders or following the rule of the law..”. So sending troops to defend the border from people that want to enter illegally, actually invading, is…no relation to defending the borders? What contorted liberal “logic” was used in that contradictory statement? J and his kind can’t actually offer up any intelligent argument, so instead we get “white nationalists, neo Nazis, ect. Labeling (without proof, as usual) in lieu of debate.

    • Jethro says:

      The response, i.e., sending 5200 troops, is much greater than the threat.

      Maybe cons are actually afraid that Honduran civilians will overrun America, but it seems very unlikely, right?

      You understand this is a political stunt by tRump serving no purpose other than bolstering GOP chances next week.

      NeoNazis and white nationalists are the groups that tRump caters to. This truth SHOULD hurt.
