Posted on 08/01/2014 2:38:24 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
On Thursdays Outnumbered on the Fox News Channel, panelists Tucker Carlson and Kirsten Powers had a heated exchange over the ongoing border crisis and whether or not it was this countrys so-called Christian duty to grant those unaccompanied minors entering the United States asylum.
Carlson questioned Powers suggestion as it being the Christian obligation of the country to accept these minors into the United States. He argued that it wasnt Christian to shirk those cost onto the American people through the use of their tax dollars and called out church groups encouraging those fleeing Central American countries to seek government assistance.
Partial transcript as follows:
CARLSON: You are saying the United States have an obligation anyone who is suffering around the world has a right to come here and be supported by you and me?
POWERS: Hey, have you ever been to the Statue of Liberty?
CARLSON: So, you are saying, in Congo for example where there has been a war for 20 years, every Congolese has a moral right to come here?(continued)

Tuck it where the sun don’t shine
Better yet is it the obligation to inflict the invaders on the taxpayers?
I may have to withdraw my award of “Most Rational of the Mostly Irrational Liberals for 2014” to Kirsten. Sad to say. I did have hopes for her.
Christians being suckered in ,Demonuts will be back at hating you soon enough
Gee what happened to that sacred liberal separation of church and state?
Maybe Kirsten means well and people like her think they do. However while they gaze longingly at the huge horizon believing they and only they care so much more they are looking right over the very ones who are already here, first in line. They’re called Americans.
That's where I stopped reading the OP.
Kirsten, step up, show your Christian values, and warmly welcome some MS-13 gangbangers and other diseased invaders into your personal residence. No? Then STFU.
Either we are a Republic with laws that need to be followed and applied evenly and not through arbitrary forces and arbitrary manner, or we are not a classically liberal national Republic.
Sentimentality, over the plight of whomever is in the eye of the media, is not the way to run a Nation. True sentiment is in individual charity and applied on each instance of the truly righteous heart.
A six year old found of the banks of the Rio Grand or the shores of the Florida Keys, can claim all the hearts of a nation. A gaggle of teenagers, called by their illegal alien parents working at a meat packing plant in Iowa to come here because Obama has thrown the laws out the window in hopes of new undocumented Democrats is not worthy of my heartfelt virtue.
I used to give to a variety of missions and charities trying to combat poverty all over the world. Now these charities can all kiss my fat rear. I refuse to be intimidated or made to feel guilty.
In the House just now Louis Gohmert said it was harry Reid’s way or the highway..
he also said he had to vote NO on the vote up right now..
It gave Eric Holder the authority to pick the 40 new judges for the illegal aliens..
Louis said that besides he couldn’t see giving a man who is contempt that power...
And how many of these illegals are living in Powers’ million dollar home?
Kirsten Powers’s new found faith has turned her into a scolding churl.
Churches are being paid off by funny money from Obama Admin. to actively support Amnesty.
Wiether GOP-e is also actively involved is suspected but not proven.
Rove knows but no one will ask him
What BS. These people are not being persecuted. The squalid conditions and gang violence in Central America has been going on for years - there’s nothing different now. Obama is just using the “children” as a ruse to import new Democrat voters. What a despicable man and despicable party.
America is a “Christian” nation when it’s favorable to the liberals.
Every dollar spent on a real double fence saves $100 caring for and feeding illegal aliens.
One of history's great sentimentalists was none other than Adolf Hitler. There was nothing he wouldn't do to gain lebensraum for his poor landsers...in just the same way liberals wouldn't hesitate to kill every single white, middle-class American to save their vision of the world.
People of that ideological persuasion cannot separate charity from government imposed social benefits that forcefully extract payment from others, or from socialism. To them it’s all the same good ole Robin Hood.
“POWERS: Hey, have you ever been to the Statue of Liberty?”
Does Ms. Powers have any idea how many were returned from Ellis Island to their native country in Europe because they didn’t have proper documentation?
Does she know that those who DID have proper documentation were totally on their own once they got past Ellis Island? There were no ‘benefits’ whatsoever.
Those immigrants of yesteryear were willing to risk it all in exchange for the opportunity only of making it in the USA, no housing subsidies, no food stamps, no healthcare, no nothin’.
It all sounds good but it doesn’t fit the One world agenda to make the North American Continent a big happy melting pot.
It is outrageous to have a group of people designated as being above the law. They will not enhance our quality of life, and they will not improve our gene pool. Instead, they will drain our resources and great chaos. The amnesty people are playing right into the hands of the terrorists.
