Democratic Congresswoman Compares CBP Practices to Auschwitz, But Uses Obama-Era Photos

Thursday evening, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) compared U.S. Customs and Border Protection confiscating items from detained immigrants crossing the border to images from Auschwitz. The pictures in the story Speier cited were from an artist’s exhibit using items confiscated from 2007 to 2014, mostly under the Obama administration.

“CBP takes away rosaries, shoes, wallets and toothbrushes from detained immigrants; what they call “non-essential” personal property,” Speier tweeted. “The images in these photos shockingly resemble the shoes collected from Auschwitz – and it’s revolting and chilling.”

Title calls her a “Democratic Congresswoman,” which is misleading. There is nothing “democratic” about the ideas which motivate such conclusions as hers.

Cong Jackie "Jonestown" Speier (Democrat-CA) compared U.S. Customs and Border Protection confiscating items from detained immigrants crossing the border....... to images from Auschwitz. However, the pictures she stupidly were from an artist’s exhibit of items confiscated 2007-2014, mostly under the Obama administration.

FROM A FR POST-—when Hillary Clinton was gearing up for a presidential run, she argued children of illegal immigrants aren’t entitled to stay in the United States.

“Should they [children] be able to stay here? It’s safer,” CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour asked during a 2014 interview.

“It may be safer, but that’s not the answer,” Clinton said. “We need to provide more border security in southern Mexico. They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who the responsible adults in their families are. All of them who can be should be reunited with their families,” she continued. “We have to send a clear message: just because your child gets across the border, doesn’t mean your child gets to stay. We don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or that will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.”

President Obama made the same argument then that President Donald Trump has been making about the problems with current immigration law. “Do not send your children to the border,” Obama said. “The problem is that under current law, once those kids come across the border, there is a system in which we’re supposed to process them, take care of them until we can send them back.”

REFERENCE——The first major unaccompanied minor crisis occurred in 2014 when tens-of-thousands of illegal alien children crossed the southern border with Mexico without their parents. Today, that crisis continues. While many illegal immigrants are adults with children crossing as (unverified) “family units,” the vast majority are unaccompanied minors.

I wonder if she is one of the Democraptic Party congress critters who are also members of the Democratic Socialist Party of America? (That is an existing party that is a hair to the conservative side of the Communist Party of the USA)

Liberals are against liberty

Progressives want to regress into hereditary monarchy.

Gays are not happy.

Educators do not educate.

Civil rights advocates take away civil rights.

Community organizers divide communities.

She could use photos from Jonestown, where commie loon Jim Jones murdered children, and her own congressman at the time, Leo Ryan.

Jackie Jonestown is also going down in history as the woman who spoke on the floor of the House about how grateful she was to get an abortion........(gag).

That looks like a “@MeToo” moment right there.

Jackie Spier in Jonestown with Cong Leo Ryan right before he was shot dead by Rev Jones' goons.

Jackie was Ryan's aide.....when he got shot, she ran for and won his seat.

The Party wants to protect children of illegal immigrants, but wants to murder American babies before they are born.

She threw a dead man under the “#MeToo movement Bus”.

She said that when she was in her 20’s a chief of staff for Representative Leo Ryan, “kissed me and stuck his tongue in my mouth.”

A real “Profile in Courage” recipient.

Oh I’m not defending her flaky azz. I’m just saying that she has better examples of murderous tyranny from her own side (Jones was from the left after all, Ryan was prepared to be fooled until he got stabbed at Jonestown, then he started opening his eyes, too late).

No problem. I’m still flabbergasted and frustrated at certain events today and our side’s milquetoast reaction to them. I need to calm down and get my perspective back.
