Left-wing Hypocrisy

Conservative commentator Molly Hemmingway made an observation that is worth repeating.

Yesterday morning, the left was still in full-throated outrage over the children who were “ripped away from their parents” at the border.  Around 2:30 yesterday afternoon, the news broke that Anthony Kennedy was resigning, giving President Trump the chance to nominate a second constitutionalist to the high court.

Immediately, the same liberals who were crying about children being ripped from their mothers were screaming about the right to rip babies from their mothers’ wombs.  I don’t think any of them paused to consider the stark contradiction of those statements.

By the way, these same leftists who are demanding that women be allowed to illegally enter the country with their children are also demanding that pregnant women who do come into the country illegally be allowed to abort their children at taxpayer expense.

The radical Women’s March movement is calling for a day of unrest and “mass civil disobedience” in Washington, D.C., today.  At least 1,000 women have reportedly vowed to risk arrest.  Among their many demands, the Women’s March is joining the left’s call to abolish ICE.

Let’s be clear about what that means: These radicals are demanding that we let thousands of criminals roam our streets.

According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, “Immigrants with past criminal convictions accounted for 74% of all arrests made by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in fiscal 2017.”  We’re talking more than 100,000 illegal immigrants with DUIs, drug charges, sexual assaults and even homicides.
