The Progressive Socialist Vision of a ‘Wholesome America’

Allen West Old School PatriotBY ALLEN WEST

Recently, I shared with y’all a post about House Speaker — Miss Impeachment — Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Texas. Ms. Pelosi made the comment that turning Texas blue — meaning sad — would be wholesome for America. I tend to disagree with her assertion. Just ask yourselves: if things are so great in these Democrat (socialist) controlled “blue” — again, meaning sad — states, then why are they fleeing to prosperous red states?

Seriously, all one has to do is analyze the top 25 most dangerous cities in America, as to who is in control. Not very wholesome. Or, how about assessing the crisis of homelessness in cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and now Austin Texas…wholesome?

Does anyone truly embrace the notion that wholesomeness can come from the party of infanticide?

We hear so much chatter about how President Trump is failing with American suburban women. Sure, Mr. Trump sometimes does remind women of the obnoxious boy from middle or high school. But, if there is one thing one cannot debate is that President Trump would never advocate for a policy that endangers the American people, and American women.

I do not think we can say the same about the so-called “party of wholesomeness,” and I write that in utter sarcasm.

As reported by Townhall:

The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency announced the arrest of 82 alleged illegal immigrants during a five day stretch from September 20 – September 25 in New York state. Forty-two of these individuals had been previously apprehended by local police but released back into the streets despite having federal detainer requests from ICE. At least two of these foreign nationals have been previously accused of unwanted touching and sexual assault with pending charges.

Mark Lungariello of the Rockland/Westchester News reports that “a 32-year-old man arrested in Yonkers had been released in New York City despite a detainer. The unnamed man, of Peru, was out on charges including forcing touching with the subject victim to sexual contact on a bus/train/subway and sexual abuse in the third degree.”

Lunagariello also reports that “51-year-old registered sex offender was picked up in Mamaroneck after he was released by New York, ICE said. He is facing charges of forcible touching, public lewdness, third-degree sexual abuse and unlawful surveillance. A Mexico native, the man was previously convicted of unlawful surveillance and using an imaging device to view under clothing.”

At least 10 of those arrested had been previously deported from the U.S. but re-entered the country. “Of those arrested during these five days, more than half were released from local custody with an active detainer,” Thomas Decker, field office director of Enforcement and Removal Operations, said in a statement. “That is more than three dozen illegal aliens with convictions or criminal charges who were released back into New York communities, further putting the safety of its residents at risk.

Not too long ago we shared with y’all the story about the scourge of criminal illegal immigrant sex offenders in the suburban area of Montgomery County Maryland. We have on many occasions shared stories about MS-13 criminal illegal immigrant gang murders. Let us never forget young American women like Kate Steinle and Mollie Tibbetts who had their beautiful lives cut short by criminal illegal immigrants.

Just who is the party that supports sanctuary cities and states? Who is the party that attacks our ICE facilities and demands that we abolish this agency that is charged with protecting us from illegal immigrants? Who is the party that embraces the policy of open borders, decriminalizing the illegal crossing of our border, and who would give free healthcare to illegal immigrants?

Is that what Nancy Pelosi defines as wholesome? Is this the progressive socialist vision of a wholesome America? Yes, it appears that it is, and why it is more important to reject their vision than be overly concerned about President Trump’s personality. Just ask yourselves a simple question: would you rather have Joe Biden’s, Elizabeth Warren’s, Kamala Harris’, Bob Frank O’Rourke’s, Julian Castro’s . . . or any of the other leftist clowns’ personality, and live in fear in your homes and on our streets as they release predators, and allow them to freely assail our wives and daughters?

How wholesome is it that we have the left who wants, admittedly so, to disarm the American people…all while they release these animals onto our streets? Oops, sorry, Miss Impeachment said that even these cretins have a “spark of divinity.” How wholesome.

C’mon folks, put on your thinking caps. First, we have to find one that can fit the heads of progressive socialists. These Democrat (socialists) do not give a doggone about you, your life, your standard of living, quality of life, nothing.

The progressive socialist left’s definition of ‘wholesome’ means their control, their centralized power, and our being relegated to subjects and targets for their thugs, like Antifa and criminal illegal immigrants.

That’s not wholesome, but it is anti-American.
