    Trump's wall is about giving people an enemy to hate

    1. Violent crime is at historic lows

    Crime Remains at Historic Lows in America

    2. Illegal immigrants commit fewer violent crimes than natural citizens

    What statistics actually show about crime and immigration

    3. Illegal border crossings are at record lows

    Arrests For Illegal Border Crossings Hit 46-Year Low

    Yet, we are to believe there is some great crisis at the border? What's going on?

    It's simple. The best way to control people is to give them an enemy to hate. Allow them to pour that anger and frustration upon a common enemy.

    In 1963, Rod Sterling wrote an excellent episode of the Twilight Zone about a young political activist who learned to use hate to motivate and control people from a shadowy figure.



    Where will he go next? The answer is Washington D.C. in 2016.

    Rod Sterling's monologue at the end of the episode is really worth hearing. The monologue and its transcript are below?

    Where will he go next, this phantom from another time, this resurrected ghost of a previous nightmare – Chicago? Los Angeles? Miami, Florida? Vincennes, Indiana? Syracuse, New York? Anyplace, everyplace, where there’s hate, where there’s prejudice, where there’s bigotry. He’s alive. He’s alive so long as these evils exist. Remember that when he comes to your town. Remember it when you hear his voice speaking out through others. Remember it when you hear a name called, a minority attacked, any blind, unreasoning assault on a people or any human being. He’s alive because through these things we keep him alive


    Does anyone deny that Trump is just giving the masses an enemy to hate to fulfill his own ambition?

    Trying to make people migrate and enter the country properly is not about violent crime.

    What's happening at the border is vast numbers of unskilled uneducated people that don't even speak the language here are entering and undercutting the lowest skilled citizens. Not only do they undercut the lowest skilled citizens they also create the need for bilingual lowest skilled citizens. And the lowest scum citizens are likely never going to be bilingual.

    The border wall is a barrier and it will force people to go through the gates.

    1: And...?

    2. So what? All that says there are Americans who are criminals so there should be indifference about importing non Americans to be criminals.

    3. Because security is being ramped up. Drive it down further. As far as no crisis, seems that Mexico is having problems.

    Meh, Trump's wall is all about Trump not wanting to lose on his top campaign slogan. No need to put any more effort into figuring this out.

    Looked at another way - it virtually guarantees the need for massive income redistribution (democratic socialism?).

    Yup, because anger and hate work for the rubes. They have been living on a diet of talk radio hate for years, they won't listen to actual logic and reason, they need fear and hate and, by all means, make it real simplistic so that they can numbly nod their heads and say "hell yeah!".

    His target demographic is really ignorant angry idiots....and those are not in short supply.

    So if that's all it's about why in the hell are the Democrats shutting down government over it? I think that's all about not letting Trump fulfill on his promises.

    Do you have any evidence it will do this to the tune of justifying spending $5b? Because every day people are going over and under the existing walls. What's so special about this new wall?
