Chip Roy Takes AOC to School on Border Issues

Published

on

Texas Congressman Chip Roy wants to set the record straight on what’s taking place at the Southern border.

Since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused a huge media uproar about the conditions of migrants at detention centers at the border, immigration quickly came back to the spotlight.

However, Congressman Roy has a different take on the situation.

In a tweet, Roy said “I’ve been to the border multiple times.”

And unlike AOC, he’s isn’t putting on “a show for the media.”

Roy has made several visits to the border, and based on his experience, he does not share the view that the detention centers are the second coming of Nazi concentration camps.

But he does understand the bigger picture—the U.S. government is failing to secure the border.

Since he was elected in 2018, Roy has been one of the fiercest proponents of border security in Congress.

He recognizes what’s going on at the border, especially the influx of criminal elements such as drug cartels.

In fact, BLP reported on Roy’s efforts to designate drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.

He believes such organizations should be designated as FTOs “because of their particularly violent actions and intentional strategies to affect the political system. These cartels push for an anarchic form of government which allows them to skirt laws and push their terrorist model without any legal ramifications.”

These specific factions were chosen “because of their particularly violent actions and intentional strategies to affect the political system. These cartels push for an anarchic form of government which allows them to skirt laws and push their terrorist model without any legal ramifications.”

Roy singles out AOC for her recent demagoguery on the issue.

Indeed, there is a crisis at the border, but it’s for different reasons.

It has nothing to do with “Holocaust” like treatment of refugees but rather a broken immigration system that encourages mass migration from the Third World while not providing adequate protection from the very real threats south of the border.

But this debate goes beyond border crossings. The mass migration to citizenship pipeline presents a legitimate threat to U.S. political and social institutions. Europe is already overrun with ethnic ghettoes thanks to its mass migration policies, which has sparked a populist backlash across the continent.

The U.S. could suffer a similar fate given Third World migrants’ tendency of bloc voting for leftist parties.

For that reason, immigration is the number #1 issue heading into election season.

Roy should be commended for his efforts to bring some sanity into the immigration discussion.

The time for emotional pandering is over.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks. 

Can Americans actually grow a spine for once?
