About that bridge in Brooklyn . . .
I'm sure that by now, many readers have seen reports (such as this one) of the carefully-cuted-up five-year-old child who "slipped through the security barriers" in Washington DC (yeah, right!) and presented a letter to Pope Francis calling on him to support the cause of illegal aliens in the USA.
This was clearly a set-up job from beginning to end. The security surrounding the Pope was - must have been - at an astronomically high level . . . yet, seemingly miraculously, it parted before this child like the Red Sea parted before Moses. The wording and tone of the letter she carried had about as much to do with a five-year-old's way of thinking and expressing herself as I had to do with Mata Hari. Yet, from the way the mainstream media lapped it up, you'd think it was the most original, most spontaneous thing since sliced bread.
They're lying, of course. It was nothing more than a deliberately staged photo and propaganda opportunity by those in favor of increased tolerance towards illegal aliens and granting them a path towards first residence, then citizenship. Any politician who uses this incident as an argument to support illegal immigrants thereby brands him- or herself as either blind to reality, or actively in collusion with those seeking to undermine the constitution and laws of the United States.
If you believe otherwise, there's this bridge in Brooklyn, NYC I'd like to sell you. Cash only, please, and in small bills.
EDITED TO ADD: It was, indeed, staged.
