Last week, the liberal media went into a near hysterical uproar when President Trump spoke about the notoriously violent gang MS-13. While speaking about the viciousness of their actions, the Commander in Chief referred to the gang members as “animals.”
Fresno, California sheriff, Margaret Mims commented to the President about MS-13, sanctuary cities and ICE. Trump responded, “We have people coming into our country – or trying to come in, we’re stopping a lot of them – but we’re taking people out of the country, you wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.”
Despite the fact that Trump was having a discussion with the sheriff about the brutal gang, radical left-wing news commentators seized the chance to twist his words around and make the statement about immigrants in general, not the dangerous, hardened criminals.
The liberal commentators at CNN and MSNBC were up in arms for days, misleading their viewers by claiming that Trump was being derogatory towards all immigrants. Opinion pieces published in newspapers across the country also mislead readers into believing this as well.
E.J. Dionne Jr. of the Hartford Courant wrote, “It’s never right to call other human beings “animals.” It’s not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter how much legitimate anger genuinely evil actions might inspire, dehumanizing others always leads us down a dangerous path.”
That’s right. Dionne was, in so many words, stating that it was insulting to members of the violent MS-13 gang members to call them animals. The same people who are notorious for committing rapes, kidnapping and murders so horrific in nature that the details are often censored from live news programs.
However, Trump didn’t back down.
“We have laws that are laughed at on immigration,” he told reporters at the White House. “So when the MS-13 comes in, when the other gang members come into our country, I refer to them as animals and guess what? I always will.”
As of today, May 21, the White House released detailed information regarding MS-13 which touched on the controversy of last week and the horrors committed by members of this gang. To read, please click here.
