Boxcars?


For John, BLUFThis isn't just micro aggression, this is prejudice.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From Hot Air Writer ALLAHPUNDIT leads us to Mediaite, which has this paragraph:
She continued, saying it was “the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort—including perhaps National Guard and others—to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them, I don’t know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border.”
For its headline to an article by Reporter Alex Griswold, Mediaite titrates this down to "Clinton:  Republicans Want to Round Up Illegal Immigrants, Shove Them in Boxcars".

Thus, Godwin's Law has been fulfilled, and very early in the campaign.  Ms Clinton appears to be the winner.

Sometimes we get our historical metaphors mixed up.  Neither Donald Trump or any other Republican Candidate is advocating rounding up American Citizens and deporting them a strange land, there to be gassed and cremated.  There are some who say that illegal immigrants should be returned to their current homeland.  There is a difference.  To not recognize this distinction is to suffer from Invincible Ignorance

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
