Don’t the Democrats like to preach that they are the party of tolerance and inclusion? Of course we know this is a lie. They’re tolerant so long as you agree with exactly everything they say. Toe the party line or suffer the consequences. Via The Washington Free Beacon:
As President Donald Trump renews his battle with Congress to fund his multi-billion-dollar border wall with Mexico, Democratic lawmakers and liberal groups in California have stepped up their campaigns to blacklist businesses involved in building the border wall.
San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.
The majority Democratic San Diego City Council, in a 3 to 1 vote last week, directed city officials to draft an ordinance requiring contractors competing for city projects to disclose any past and present work, as well as planned bids, on parts of Trump’s planned border wall.
“Trump’s border wall does nothing to promote San Diego’s robust economy and our positive international ties with Mexico,” Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry, a Democrat, said in a statement. “Our region is stronger because of our cross-border exchange with our neighbors to the south.”
I’m all for freedom of choice for consumers to choose who they support and buy products from. But this is not that. As the left pushes further to the extreme left and outright Communism, they will continue to ramp up government intervention and control. Centralized planning is a core tenet of Communism. And again none of their policies respect a diversity of opinions. If you do not agree with them they will black ball you and try and ruin your life. Is it really fair to the construction workers of these countries who are trying to put food on their tables for their families to suffer because the feral left want to take their toys and walk away? How tolerant!
Nearly 100 out of the estimated 600 companies who have competed for border-wall contracts so far are reportedly based in California, and 10 percent of those firms are Hispanic-owned, according to the Guardian.
I think it’s funny how much they’re willing to hurt their fellow Californians in this blatant attempt to railroad and delay essential infrastructure for border security. Remember also how much we’re told how racist the wall is. Sorry, but many legal Hispanics also agree with better border security and lower levels of even legal immigration. You cannot have a country if you have porous borders that allow in drugs, human trafficking, and a multitude of future welfare recipients on the public dole with zero skin in the game. As much as Ms Bry wants to obfuscate the truth about our relationship with Mexico, it is possible to control your border and still maintain friendly relations.
