Horrors! He Called Them Animals!!

Horrors! He Called Them Animals!!

In a recent article for the Patriot Post, Dennis Prager noted the following:

“If you want to understand the moral sickness at the heart of leftism, read the first paragraph of the most recent column by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne:”

He quotes Dionne as follows,

“It’s never right to call other human beings ‘animals.’ It’s not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter how much legitimate anger that genuinely evil actions might inspire, dehumanizing others always leads us down a dangerous path.”

Dennis then went on to make his argument that the use of the word
“animal”, as President Trump applied it to MS-13 gang members, was a moral statement, not a biological one.

The leftist-democrats and their mainstream media propaganda machines selected only the part of his interaction with another person that showed him mentioning that illegal immigrants were animals. However, he was only referring to MS-13 members. They then presented this as his and his administration’s encompassing attitude about all illegal immigrants, and by implication, all Mexicans and brown people from Latin America.

The following is part of an article written by Jim Geraghty that relates to this piece of damnable lying Leftist/Democratic propaganda.

Trump’s ‘Animals’ Are MS-13 Members, Not All Illegal Immigrants

“Making the click-through worthwhile: For once, Trump’s heated, hyperbolic rhetoric feels appropriate; a long look at a Democratic congressman who’s called moderate but is nothing of the sort; and the Robert Mueller investigation hits one year . . . and why it’s, at least so far, mostly just confirming what we already expected.

Who’s an Animal?

President Trump, during a roundtable event discussing sanctuary cities yesterday, talking with Fresno County sheriff Margaret Mims:

SHERIFF MIMS: Thank you. There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.

THE PRESIDENT: We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy. The dumbest laws — as I said before, the dumbest laws on immigration in the world. So we’re going to take care of it, Margaret. We’ll get it done.

I’d prefer if the president spoke more precisely and clearly, but it seems pretty clear to me that the president is referring to MS-13 gang members as animals. That, of course, is not what the media reported.

The New York Times: “Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the country’s borders ‘animals’”

HuffPost: “Trump Refers To Immigrants As ‘Animals.’ Again.”

Vox: “Trump on deported immigrants: ‘They’re not people. They’re animals.’”

The Washington Post: “Trump compares illegal immigrants to ‘animals’”

Come on, Washington Post. We expect you to shed a clarifying light on controversies such as these, not obscure them further with inaccurate headlines. Haven’t you guys ever heard that democracy dies in darkness?

You could argue, as John Harwood of the Wall Street Journal does, that even MS-13 members are human beings, and that there’s reason to be worried when an American leader — or a leader anywhere, really — starts arguing that a certain group of people aren’t really human beings. (You know, such as “partially born,” the disabled, or the terminally ill, right?)

But let’s have no illusions about MS-13. Their motto is “Kill, Rape, Control.” They’re heavily involved in sex trafficking and forcing underage girls into prostitution. They don’t merely kill those who cross them; they do so in particularly gruesome ways to intimidate others, such as stabbing a teenager 153 times in a public park. They leave bodies of victims near elementary schools.

Advancement within the gang requires murdering members of rival gangs. Some members are literally Satanists, justifying their murders with the claim that the Devil “wanted a soul.”

Donald Trump says a lot of crude, obnoxious, inappropriate, incendiary, and disgusting things, but this . . . really isn’t one of them.”

End of quote.


The leftist/democratic media published this scurrilous smear tactic to defame a duly elected President of the United States and this purposeful slander should be legally actionable.

This and the unrelenting leftist/democratic media’s deceitful disinformation is all part of a great propagandist rule-of-thumb; one developed by one of the most skilled propagandists the world has ever seen.


All of this would simply be preposterous, were it not such a gut-wrenching symptom of how seriously our way-of-life has been damaged by the American Progressive Movement within the new Marxist Democratic Party and media.

Now, just for fun and to alleviate the sick feeling all of this gives me. When I grew up there were only three categories of materials on earth.

They were vegetables, minerals and animals.

So my fellow homosapiens, to which category do you belong? 

However, since my early schooling, science has broadened its taxonomy of living matter. Never the less, I suspect that most of us homosapiens will still wish to identify as animals among the expanded options available.

I challenge you to decide where you fit-in!
