I'm a bit pressed for time today, so I'll leave you with two things that juxtaposed nicely for me today. First is this tidbit from a Rich Lowry piece.
Beto O’Rourke — the losing Texas candidate for the US Senate who bootstrapped his way into becoming a losing presidential candidate — had a message for refugees who had come to America: Your new country is a hellhole.I haven't seen anyone on the left disavowing him or his primary opponents using the stupidity of it to attack him, so I'm guessing they all pretty much agree. That leads me to these tweets from Richard Fernandez, aka Wretchard the Cat.
The former congressman told a roundtable of refugees and immigrants in Nashville last week: “This country was founded on white supremacy. And every single structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression.”
For the same reason, they can't denounce the raising of the Mexican flag at ICE. They know they must. They may even be convinced. But the words won't come. The words die in their throat. It's spooky.— wretchardthecat (@wretchardthecat) July 16, 2019
This isn't going to end well.
