If that’s the case, why are there four times as many national border fences in the world right now than there were when the Berlin Wall fell?
In 2014, Saudi Arabia finished building a 600-mile wall and ditch along the Iraqi border that includes fencing, towers, cameras, and is patrolled by 30,000 troops. But you won’t hear Hillary Clinton squawk about it, since the Saudis are reportedly floating about 20% of her campaign.
In 2013 Brazil announced that it was building a “virtual” drone-and-satellite wall along its 9,000-mile border.
Hungary completed razor-wire fences along its Serbian and Croatian borders in 2015, and its previous wave of unwanted Middle Eastern refugees slowed to a trickle.
India is in the process of building a fence along its 2,500-mile border with Bangladesh. This year it also activated a dozen “laser walls” along its border with Pakistan.
An article this year in The Atlantic stated that “Of the 51 fortified boundaries built between countries since the end of World War II, around half were constructed between 2000 and 2014.” The Economist recently predicted that Europe “will soon have more physical barriers on its national borders than it did during the Cold War.”
What were you saying about the “wrong side of history” again? The recent historical thrust is in one direction”more walls.
I’ve endured more pious, hypocritical indignation from the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, Paul Ryan, and Hillary Clinton than one workin’ man should ever be expected to endure. No longer will I sit silently as they huddle safely in their fortified, high-tech Batcaves while castigating proles such as myself for not embracing and financing the hostile hordes they’re pouring into this country like so much fire and brimstone. Until you give me your keys and allow me to pop by your walled-in mansions any time I want, you all need to shut your lying pieholes about open borders.
