The Liberal Stampede to ‘Abolish ICE’
Pat Buchanan, American Renaissance, 3 July 2018
“What is it in the DNA of the left that it is always ready to enlist in any new war on cops?”
“No Borders! No Nations! No Deportations!” “Abolish ICE!”
Before last week, these were the mindless slogans of an infantile left, seen on signs at rallies to abolish ICE, the agency that arrests and deports criminal aliens who have no right to be in our country.
By last week, however, “Abolish ICE!” was no longer the exclusive slogan of the unhinged left. National Democrats were signing on.
Before his defeat in New York’s 14th Congressional District, Joe Crowley, fourth-ranked Democrat in the House, called ICE a “fascist” organization.
After Crowley’s rout by a 28-year-old socialist who called for killing the agency, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., declared ICE to be “a cruel deportation force (that) we need to abolish.”
Cynthia Nixon, a candidate for governor of New York, described ICE as a “terrorist organization … terrorizing people who are coming to this country. … We need to abolish ICE.”
A star of “Sex and the City” castigated the men and women of ICE as terrorists at St. Paul and St. Andrew United Methodist Church in Manhattan. One wonders what the pastor thought of this Christian message.
Friday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the clamor: “We should abolish ICE.” Over the weekend, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., signed on:
“President Trump seems to think that the only way to have immigration rule is to rip parents from their family (and) treat rape victims and refugees like terrorists and to put children in cages.”
What ICE does is “ugly” and “wrong,” said Warren.
“We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality.”
Wisconsin Democratic Congressman Mark Pocan plans to introduce legislation to do exactly that—abolish ICE.
President Donald Trump describes this latest liberal campaign as social and political insanity: “You get rid of ICE you’re going to have a country that you’re going to be afraid to walk out of your house.”
What is going on here?
Democrats, having just gone through the worst week in memory for progressives, are in imminent danger of losing it altogether.
