@VDHanson: Had we a wall now, that’d deter people from coming in by 1,500-mile march. If Hondurans & Guatemalans can crash the US border with impunity, we won’t have citizenship, sovereignty or the idea of nationhood any more.
Victor Davis Hanson, Hoover & NRO, discusses the optics prior to the midterms. Second caravan forming. Possible explosive devices: the white powder associated with the explosives is thought not to be dangerous. One of the couriers seems to have been identified. . . . In the case of the caravan, we have hard evidence. If the people from Honduras and Guatemala were able to crash the US border with impunity, we wouldn't have citizenship, sovereignty, or the idea of nationhood any more. Had we a wall now, that’d deter people from coming in by 1,500-mile march. Looks as though 60% or 70% are young men. . . .
Now there’s a second caravan marching toward the US border. And explosives delivered to celebrity Democrats. Do these look theatrical to you? Perhaps associated with the midterms? I think everyone has become pretty cynical about this. “Tough speech reifies aggressive actions like these” – not really. We don’t know what the rules are; and it's not symmetrical. If speech leads to violent acts – Madonna wanted to assassinate President Trump – maybe they should be on a no-fly list for 90 days.
