It’s Independence Day, So, Of Course The NY Times Tries To “Take Stock” Of America

At least in the Era Of Trump, news organizations must find ways to hate on America, so, the NY Times editorial board gives it a shot

America the Beautiful
Taking stock of the state of the Republic on Independence Day.

America in 2019 is a nation that locks up migrant children after separating them from their families. And yet it is also a nation that gives sanctuary and charity to tired, poor people as they seek to join this community, built by immigrants.

It’s a nation that walked out on its commitment to help preserve a livable planet for future generations. And a nation whose engines of ingenuity are working to make the planet healthier and safer.

Its underpaid women’s World Cup soccer team competes wearing the national colors, even as the nation’s symbols and traditionsare fiercely contested back home.

Despite the mention of Hotcoldwetdry and the soccer team, this is mostly about illegal immigration

Anyone curious about the effects of anti-immigration policies of the Trump administration needs look no further than the sad faces on the pictures of jailed children drawn by jailed children. For the strong of stomach, photos from the government’s own inspectors are even more disturbing.

Again, these people put themselves in this situation by coming illegally. Though, certainly, illegal aliens supporters like the NYTEB are complicit in telling them to come illegally. Further, where were the complaints when Obama was doing this? The condemnation rings hollow

Yet there are also stories from the border that showcase this country’s virtues.

After reading about the conditions inside detention facilities, Austin Savage and a group of friends walked into a store in Texas. They walked out, having spent hundreds of dollars on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys. When they arrived at a Border Patrol station that was holding children in Clint their donation was refused. While at the station, they also found a bag in the lobby holding soap, toothpaste and a note: “I heard y’all need soap + toothpaste for kids. Maybe more will be on its way soon.”

Of course, that whole soap and toothpaste thing started under, yes, Mr. Obama! This schlock continues on and on, finally delving into other subjects

It may seem odd that a country so prosperous, so powerful and so free would at the same time be so anxious and angry, so riven by factionalism. It’s even more puzzling — and not unrelated — that this same country, with such resources to draw upon, would nevertheless tolerate such high levels of poverty and homelessness, of addiction to pharmaceutical drugs, of inequality in wealth and application of justice and quality of education.

Well, perhaps if we weren’t spending so much money on illegal aliens we’d be able to spend the money on those other things. But, hey, rather than celebrating America and all its great things, the NY Times has to shit on it. Because this is Liberal World

    Happy Independence Day!!

    TEACH typed: “…illegal aliens supporters like the NYTEB are complicit in telling them to come illegally. Further, where were the complaints when Obama was doing this?”

    While there’s little question that the media preferred the decent President Obama to the indecent trump (as did/do most Americans), President Obama was not immunized against criticism for his policies. Even by the NYTs.

    trump’s entire campaign was “Make America Great Again” by terrifying white voters of an infestation/invasion of brown rapists, murderers, drug dealers and terrorists. Only trump could save you by making Mexico build The Wall. And locking up Secretary Clinton.

      And the Gray Lady has been anti-America and anti-freedom since Walter Duranty.

      In Texas, between 2011 & 2018, there were a total of 292,000 crimes by illegal aliens, 539 murders, 32,000 assaults, 3,426 sexual assaults and 3000 weapons charges

      Since 2001, 63,000 Americans were murdered by illegal aliens

      So, yeah.

      Only trump could save you by making Mexico build The Wall. And locking up Secretary Clinton.

      And he’s doing just that.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Not sure of what all that was just typed is false, but certainly:

        “Since 2001, 63,000 Americans were murdered by illegal aliens”

        is false.

        The source is trump, no doubt, by way of Steve King, but there is no evidence to support the claim.

        https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/have-undocumented-killed-63000-us-9-11/

        https://www.politifact.com/facebook-fact-checks/statements/2019/jan/09/blog-posting/claim-about-63000-americans-being-killed-illegal-i/

        There are dozens of other reports that refute King’s/trump’s falsehood.

        The common response has been to “prove that undocumented immigrants HAVEN’T murdered 63,000 American citizens since 9/11!!”

        We can safely assume that any unverified “factoid” from that commenter is false.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Or no response at all. Must be busy forging trump’s MBA from Wharton.

          • formwiz says:

            There’s my response.

            I see you have no real rebuttal except to dredge up your old failures.

        • formwiz says:

          When you can find something from more reliable sources than snopes and Politifact, let us know.

          The common response has been to “prove that undocumented immigrants HAVEN’T murdered 63,000 American citizens since 9/11!!”

          Common from whom? Lefty shills?

          When you find a reliable source who says that, we’ll be impressed.

          Hell, we’ll be astonished.

          We can safely assume that any unverified “factoid” from that commenter is false.

          Only if that commenter is you. Anybody else here tells the truth.
