Black lives
And barriers

TWO ITEMS IIN THE NEWS prompt this effort;

‘Black Lives Matter’ Mob Surrounds, Attacks Trump Supporter For Wearing MAGA Hat (September 29, 2016)

A variation of this article reported basically the same thing: BLMers are intolerant of anyone who might think differently. Man attacked by angry mob at Black Lives Matter demonstration for wearing 'Make America Great Again' hat (29/09/16)

The second news item that caught my eye was about Turkey’s plans to finish construction on a border wall between it and Syria
“by the end of February, Turkish media reported. Not everyone in Syria appreciates the wall; another article, titled “Turkey building barrier wall on border with Kobane, Syrian Kurds protest”

BLM Attack

According to news reports, An Arab-American supporter of Donald Trump was chased and beaten by an angry mob during a Black Lives Matter protest in southern California Wednesday.

Feras Jabro, a 21-year old San Diego resident, was attacked by demonstrators in El Cajon, California who had gathered to protest the recent shooting of a local man by police.

But when protesters noticed Jabro’s “Make America Great Again” hat – a symbol of support for the campaign of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump – some in the crowd went
berserk, charging Jabro, who attempted to flee.

The unfortunate Trump supporter was cornered, however, and beaten before being escorted away from the mob after attackers removed his hat.

While some protesters continued to follow him, Jabro was able to find safety around a police detail assigned to contain the demonstration.

This is an on-going problem as proven by headlines in October 2015 and August 2016.

Violent Black and Latino Activists Invade Trump Rally – Trump Supporters Strike Back (October 14, 2015) and Protesters Crash Trump Fundraiser, Beat and Rob Trump Supporters Leaving MN Convention Center (Aug 20th, 2016)

What is sad about both situations is that the anti-Trump people refuse to consider any opinion but their own. This is the way of anarchy.

Granted, neither presidential candidate really is a worthy candidate – although they probably are what we, as a nation, deserve. We have not had a “decent” president since I can’t remember when – Harry S, probably.

The Walls

China built its 13,171 mile-long “Great Wall” to keep out invaders. According to Wikipedia , Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century BCE;[2] these, later joined together and made bigger and stronger, are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall.[3] Especially famous is the wall built 220–206 BCE by Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. Little of that wall remains. Since then, the Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced; the majority of the existing wall is from the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644).

Other purposes of the Great Wall have included border controls, allowing the imposition of duties on goods transported along the Silk Road, regulation or encouragement of trade and the control of immigration and emigration. Furthermore, the defensive characteristics of the Great Wall were enhanced by the construction of watch towers, troop barracks, garrison stations, signaling capabilities through the means of smoke or fire, and the fact that the path of the Great Wall also served as a transportation corridor.

The Romans also were great wall builders according to The Walls of Rome. As with the Chinese, the walls were to keep invaders at bay.

Likewise the walls around the Temple in Jerusalem. Unfortunately for the Jews, the walls were breached by both the Babylonians and the Romans.

While no one seems upset that the Turks are building a wall to keep out Syrians in general and Kurds in particular, there is loud wailing and gnashing of teeth about the walls - in truth mostly fencing – that Israel and the U.S. are building. set that the Turks are building a wall to keep out Syrians in general and Kurds in particular, there is loud wailing and gnashing of teeth about the walls - in truth mostly fencing – that Israel and the U.S. are building.

In Israel’s case, the wall is to make it more difficult for Arab terrorists from the so-called “Palestinian Authority” to enter Israel to murder as will. (No one seems particularly concerned with the fencing along Israel’s border with Gaza or the fencing along Israel’s border with Lebanon.

The U.S.-Mexican border fence is to keep out drug traffickers more than “undocumented immigrants,” known as “illegal aliens” before “politically correct euphemisms” became the order of the day. How far has this gone? See AP Won't Use the Term 'Illegal Immigrant' Because Of Its 'Anti-Ethnic Undertones' and Politically Correct Bot Will Correct You If You Say “Illegal Immigrant” on Twitter

The Democrats, led by Obama and Clinton (Hillary, that is), condemn Trump for promoting the wall, but as president, several Web sites report that the Obama Administration Is Spending $75 Million Securing Mexico's Southern Border. (American taxpayers protecting Mexico and not the U.S.?)

Attacking Trump for promoting a wall to keep out drugs and criminals is hypocrisy on a field of dishonesty. That’s politics in America.
