The guys at Filming Cops recently produced an excellent video that proves the hypocrisy of the left on the issue of illegal immigration. Using two speeches, one from Bill Clinton, and one from Barack Obama, they were able to prove that not only are Donald Trump’s words in line with our political history, his actions are completely in line with more than 50 years of presidential precedent. President Obama himself mentions it; nothing President Trump is now saying/doing is any different from what his last 10 predecessors have done.
The media and the Democrat Party only want to pretend his actions are out of keeping with past presidents so that they can undermine his presidency.
Here’s what the guys Filming Cops had to say about their little video:
Everybody is interpreting the video how they want and a few people are calling us “fascist” (?), so here is our own interpretation: the video shows that presidents have expanded state power in the name of border security for quite some time and to varying degrees. Obama deported 2.5 million immigrants, more than any other president in history. Bill Clinton went so far as to deny thousands of immigrants welfare — even food stamps — even though many of the immigrants were legal. Why are we supposed to pretend this never happened? Why are we supposed to narrow our focus onto Trump’s wall and act hysterical instead of being honest about the political realities that led to this moment? What is so “fascist” about recognizing that the State itself is the problem? We cannot fully understand the present if we fail to situate it in its historical context. It is possible to cut through the party politics of “D vs R” and reject unmitigated State power, regardless of who the president is. We will disagree with Trump if/when he expands a police state, just as we disagreed with Obama and Bush and Clinton in the past, sorry if that makes us “fascist,” lol.
By the way, it wasn’t just Bill Clinton and Barack Obama who have made speeches supporting, defending, and agreeing with Trump’s immigration policies… Hillary Clinton has too.
