My Brief Response to Dana Loesch
Mrs. Loesch's strong reaction to my post yesterday caused other outlets to react as well. So much so, that Redstate's Aaron Gardner counter-attacked in defense of Loesch and stepped close to the line of defamation of my character with the following:
“Evans hurts her own cause by her treatment of human beings as nothing but political fodder, or worse, a class of people to be killed if they don’t leave immediately."
I hope Redstate will print a retraction. Nowhere did I suggest in any way that people be killed.
The goal of all Americans should be to uphold and maintain the integrity of our laws and society. While acts of charity are good, binding those acts to the lawless situation at the border is not.
If the children were not being used as pawns by this administration to open our borders, a goal well-documented by radical leftist groups, and if they were being turned around at the border by government authorities, then offering them a “drink of water” and food, as Beck suggested, would be justifiable
But that is not the case. At great cost to the taxpayer, illegal immigrant adults and some minors are being called “refugees” and transported all over the United States without the consent of those communities to which they are being transported. This is a direct attack on our sovereignty.
The liberal left, which includes many church organizations as well as non-profit open borders groups, want to erase the word "illegal" from the whole immigration debate. So they frame the narrative by saying that those of us who oppose anyone going to the border to assist the violators, as Loesch and Beck did, are hateful and angry. This deflects attention away from the crux of the matter, the defense of our laws.
Millions of Americans must agree with me if the comments sections of various blogs are any indication. My article gave voice to the fact that we have stood by others monetarily and ideologically but they did not stand by us this past Saturday.
In making a public plea for donations for illegals and making this a media affair, Beck, Loesch and others had to know there would be opposition. They went public with their relief fund, as they had every right to do, and as did I with my article. That’s what America is all about.
If Mrs. Loesch wants to tweet insults about me and American Thinker that is her right. And it is my right to speak my mind, and I thank American Thinker for giving me that opportunity
