Over here in the U.S., the barbaric destruction unleashed at Israel’s failed border is raising some awkward questions about our own American border.
The unrest is currently welling out of the GOP’s right wing, but I’m betting the notion will quickly spread toward the political middle, since there is really no effective rebuttal.
Here are Representative Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga.) comments from Saturday:
Former Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake asked an obvious question yesterday: where are all the women?
There’s a lot I could say about this disastrous border issue, and I probably will say a lot more in coming days. But one thing the Israel attacks have proven beyond argument is that citizen fears about uncontrolled illegal immigration in the U.S. are not hypothetical, exaggerated, or fantastical, these undocumented people are legitimately a clear and present danger.
Republican governors should immediately consider two things.
First, if it’s not already done, declare a state of emergency and do everything possible to thwart the federal relocation of illegal migrants into red states.
Second, immediately start organizing civilian militias and training citizens how to fight back against a sudden sneak attack like Israel just endured.
There’s no time to waste.
It’s a unique political moment, and Governor DeSantis could seize it.
Organize community militias in every Florida city and county and start training them.
So, whoever review the Governor’s public email box gets the idea, use the subject line, “Letter re: Response to Attacks on Israel”. Add whatever additional thoughts you like. Hopefully once they see how many of us are concerned about this issue, they’ll escalate the priority.
Here is my open letter to Governor DeSantis stating the same.
