Conservative Blogger Asks the Refugee Question Nobody Else Dares… Media Dumbfounded
The left prides itself on promoting the barbarous murder of babies, yet appears to have unlimited compassion for both refugees and illegal immigrants.
This disturbing dichotomy has not gone unnoticed by TheBlaze blogger Matt Walsh, who in a piece published Friday asked, “If we call unborn babies ‘fetal refugees’ would leftists care about them?“
“The contrast is even more remarkable when you consider that every argument they make in favor of unfettered immigration applies even more directly to the unborn,” he added.
Specifically, the left’s arguments in favor of the federal government importing infinite numbers of illegal immigrants and refugees appeal “almost entirely to morality, dismissing with contempt practical concerns like national security and national sovereignty,” Walsh noted.
“They say that these people — illegal aliens, refugees — are human beings and as such they deserve to be treated with respect (which is true). They say that it is our responsibility as citizens to deal with whatever inconvenience or burden caused by their presence (which is not necessarily true). Their right to enter our country supersedes our own concerns (which is definitely not true).”
Yet when it comes to unborn children, leftists dismiss these exact same arguments, maintaining instead that unborn children do not deserve to be treated with respect but instead deserve to wiped out of existence so as to not impose an undue burden on the mother.
“In other words, they say that an American citizen has a GREATER responsibility to an immigrant from Mexico or a refugee from Syria than to her own child,” Walsh added.
It makes no sense whatsoever, but upon closer inspection, nothing about liberalism comports with rationality or consistency. It is at its core nothing more than an ideology that places how someone feels above and beyond the actual facts.
And so, because importing potential troublemakers makes liberals feel happy, they support it. Likewise, because allowing women to abort their babies all willy nilly makes some women feel happy, liberals support this as well.
What a hideous ideology — one based not on any semblance of truth but rather on the puerile emotions of fools.
