From the Christchurch massacre to the deaths of Gaza protesters, Democratic candidates for president have spoken out against violence in foreign countries, especially when Americans are among the victims. Itís natural for Americans to be outraged when our fellow nationals are killed abroad just as itís usually expedient for politicians to latch onto these events and attach them to one or more of their policies. But there are certain taboos, especially for Democrats, in which the best option is to ignore anything happened at all. The infuriating story of American women and children gunned down and burned to death by a Mexican drug cartel is such a taboo.
Nearly two days after the news of the tragic murders broke, the total number of upset Tweets, official statements of condolence, or even acknowledgement that the heinous crimes occurred currently sits at zero. In fact, they arenít even willing to attack President Trump after having his offer to assist with the problem rejected by Mexican President Obrador. To hit him on it would mean acknowledging the crimes took place, and thatís something Democrats will vehemently ignore at all costs.
A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing. If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!
This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your new president. (Im not sure this is a good move because the Democrats will be tipping off the cartels every step of the way.)
The reasons for their silence are much more complicated than they appear on the surface. The obvious answer, as was mentioned in comments to Tweets noticing the absence of a response from Democrats, is that their candidates believe their Hispanic base doesnít want to feel like theyíre being condemned by politicians running for office. This is a false assumption as the vast majority of Hispanics in America are adamantly opposed to Mexican drug cartels for the same reason other Americans are. The cartels represent evil and disdain for human life. Just because the perpetrators of these hideous murders are Hispanic doesnít mean law-abiding Hispanic-Americans support them in any way. If anything, Mexican Americans are more inclined to have strong negative emotions towards the cartels.
Has a single Democratic presidential candidate issued a statement about the violence in Mexico yesterday? I haven't seen anything, and you probably wont either.
The biggest reason for the Democratsí silence is because their policies regarding the border would encourage extending the cartelsí reach into the United States. Some of the policies proposed, especially frontrunner Elizabeth Warrenís, represent de facto open borders. These policies would hamper law enforcementís ability to stop them while creating new avenues for cartels to not only smuggle drugs into America, but also establish a wider presence of their own within our borders.
Will any journalists with access to the candidates ask them their thoughts on the disturbing crimes that took the lives of nine American citizens? LOLOL.. Will they get their stances on the drug cartels and how they plan to prevent them from having a stronger presence in America? These are questions Americans need answered and now is the time to ask them, but donít expect mainstream media to do its job in this regard. Theyíre aware the Democrats donít have answers to the growing problem. Putting them on the spot would be unacceptable to the mediaís DNC puppet masters.
Every aspect of these murders should infuriate Americans and make us shake to the bone with total outrage. But Democrats have pushed their internal mute buttons because discussing the crimes would mean exposing their flawed intentions.
The Democrats could not possibly care any less that this has happened other than wishing that it will all soon go away. if it does n0t benefit them, they arent interested, but they damn sure will support the drug cartels if the Mexican tells him to engage. In fact, they have probably already got to the Mexican president and threatened him.
