A guest on the Lou Dobbs show and invokedthe right’s favorite boogeyman, George Soros, blaming him for Central American immigration and the violence between drug cartels in Mexico. He gave no evidence of this, of course, because Republicans decided long ago that evidence simply didn’t matter in politics.
LOU DOBBS (HOST): Let’s turn to Soros and Koch. An incredible alliance, but seeming to announce that they are going to put up this institute to do — to talk about, to think about, to strategize about what the president of the United States is already doing. That is, working to bring our troops home, to create a modest foreign policy, more in order and commensurate with this nation’s history and traditions.
DOUGLAS MACGREGOR: Well, Lou, even a broken clock is right twice a day, so let’s give credit to Soros and his partner in crime Mr. Koch for being right for a change on something. It’s a litt.le late. President Trump has got us on that glide path, we’re headed in the right direction.
The problem is that Mr. Soros in particular has funded or helped fund these massive migrations out of Central America. Both of them support open borders. Mr. Soros helps to fund antifa here inside the United States.
These two men are effectively sharing responsibility for the massive criminality pouring into the United States from Mexico and the war in Mexico that no one wants to talk about.
Massive criminality from immigrants coming to the United States? Part of the evidence they always ignore are many, many studies that show that immigrants commit far less crime than native-born Americans. They continue to sell this myth of violent immigrants despite the evidence against the idea. Fear and demagoguery work much better than evidence.
