Honduran Welfare Horde Proves We Still Need a Wall
Some rabble rouser jumped up on a soapbox in the town square of some backwater village in Honduras last month and sold a dream to a group of illiterate peasants. A dream of a land, far to the north. A land of milk… and honey… and welfare checks.
So, now we have another Honduran welfare horde numbering in the thousands marching toward our southern border in yet another election stunt for the media and the Democrats to lecture us about.
If only someone could invent some type of impermeable, contiguous barrier along our wide-open southern border that would keep illegal aliens, terrorists and drugs out. We could call it, “The Embankment” or, perhaps, “The Palisade.”
As it turns out, someone did invent such a barrier, approximately 12,000 years ago. According to an article in National Geographic, which was published in early October and received zero attention, an invention known as “the wall” is what made human civilization possible.
The article is titled, “Walls May Have Allowed Civilization to Flourish.” Aside from the cute ‘May Have’ that the liberal Nat Geo editors felt compelled to throw in, the article is well worth reading. It’s an interview with David Frye, the author of “Walls: A History of Civilization in Blood and Brick.”
Frye’s theory makes tremendous sense. Without the safety provided by walls, civilization as we know it would not exist. Walls provided security from the dangerous outside world.
Instead of having to constantly be on the lookout for bad guys, humans were able to turn their attention to creating important things that make life better, such as writing. And gunpowder.
Before the days of modern mechanized warfare to repel invasions, walls were what allowed craftsmen, inventors and others to make early technological advances that we take for granted today.
Walls kept bad things out, including criminals, invading armies, immigrants and people with horrible diseases. The only exception in history was the Berlin Wall.
If National Geographic of all publications is able to grasp the importance of a wall for national security purposes, what’s Congress’s problem? If anyone on the left realizes that pro-wall article was published, Antifa is liable to set the dumpsters outside of Nat Geo’s headquarters on fire.
Here’s another question: Why is it only racist for America to want to have a wall protecting its border? Let’s do a quick check to see what some other nations are doing right now.
India is building a 2,030-mile wall on its border with Bangladesh to keep out illegal aliens. India is also building a 1,000-mile wall on its border with Myanmar, to keep out illegal aliens, drugs and Islamic terrorists.
If a developing country like India is able to put up 3,000 miles of border wall to protect itself, why are we repeatedly told this is “not feasible” or “too expensive” for America? Perhaps we could send an envoy to India to study how they’re doing it.
Turkey is building hundreds of miles of walls on its borders with Iran and Syria. China is building a 900-mile fence on its border with North Korea, to keep illegal aliens out. Pakistan is building a 1,500-mile wall along its border with Afghanistan to keep the Taliban out. Iran and Pakistan are jointly building a 430-mile border wall to stem the flow of drugs between their two countries.
Ukraine and Russia are working together to build a 1,200-mile wall between their two countries – and they’re practically at war with each other! These are just the walls under construction currently. 65 countries around the world already have thousands of miles of walls and border fences topped with razor wire to protect their citizens.
Curiously, none of the anti-wall coalition from America ever cites these walls as examples of racism. The women on ‘The View’ have never called up the president of Pakistan and huffed, “Haven’t you dummies ever heard of ladders?”
If the politicians would quit toying with us and actually keep their campaign promises to build a wall, these Honduran welfare hordes would be a moot point.
March all you want. March right up to our big, beautiful wall. Behold its marvelous construction. Then turn around and march back to wherever George Soros paid you to come from.
