Honestly, I really don’t understand why this is so difficult for some people to comprehend.
The United States of America is a sovereign nation.
We’re not a charity.
We’re not a homeless shelter.
And we’re not the world’s friggin’ halfway house.
Our Government’s primary role is to preserve and protect the rights of its citizens.
It has never been to act as an outreach charity for the world.
Worse still, some Americans believe that Christian charity and caring for the poor is something they can outsource to the Government while still claiming spiritual points for it.
Yeah, no. It doesn’t work that way.
As I wrote in December in my column Yes, please lecture me on what Jesus would think of the tax bill:
And apparently what Jesus was talking about wasn’t “you” in the “you personally” sense of the word.
Instead, Leftists believe Jesus meant “you” in the “you let the government do it for you by confiscating the wealth of others” sense of the word.
If you’re concerned about the hungry, the thirsty, the strangers, the unclothed, then you, personally, can help them.
That’s what Christian charity is all about – self-sacrifice for the least of these.
It isn’t something you outsource to the government.
Jesus didn’t say “For I was hungry and you demanded the wealthy pay more in taxes to feed me. I was thirsty and you demanded corporations pay more so that I had something to drink. I needed clothes so you badgered Congress to confiscate the wealth of the one percent to clothe me.”
[And he also didn’t say: “I was all those things so I demanded a sovereign nation let me illegally cross its border.”]
These guys don’t really care about the poor and needy. Except of course when the poor and needy can be exploited for political gain.
This is wooly-headed collectivism disguised as Christian charity.
And it’s garbage.
The role of a sovereign nation’s government is to preserve and protect the sovereignty of the nation.
And one of the most important things a sovereign nation can do to preserve and protect its sovereignty is secure its borders.
This isn’t cruel, heartless or immoral.
And it certainly isn’t unchristian.
Instead, it is the government fulfilling its obligation to its citizens.
In fact, to abdicate this responsibility would be unconscionable.
If these Hollywood celebrities and pearl-clutching “journalists” really wanted to practice Christian charity, there are plenty of poor American children who could use their help.
But their newfound “religious fervor” doesn’t include personally lifting a finger to practice what they preach.
This is the reason their sanctimonious wailing doesn’t even register on my conscience.
It’s contrived and manipulative.
The Left despises the idea of a sovereign nation.
Mostly because they simply do not comprehend it.
Case in point:
Believing that portions of the earth belong exclusively to particular humans and that they are justified in using whatever means necessary to keep other humans out exemplifies the amorality of conservatism generally. https://t.co/44EPJmjJeb

National sovereignty is not a “conservative” thing, you Twitwit.
It has been a part of human history for millennia.
But this shouldn’t be a shock to you.
This is how the Open Borders Left really thinks.
America is evil for having the temerity to preserve and protect its own sovereignty.
I’m guessing this bubble-headed idiot would also be okay if someone simply moved into his (or her?) house.
It’s probably a her.
Either that or a typical Leftist soy boy.
Any old how.
I’m getting off track here.
One of the reasons Donald Trump is President is because the American people believed that our government lost sight of its primary purpose.
And that purpose is not to treat our sovereign nation as the World’s Halfway House.
But to put the rights, sovereignty and security of the American citizens first.
