Walls are racist, and only monsters want to use barriers to separate people.
That’s the classic liberal line, at least. Conservatives and especially President Donald Trump are frequently smeared as cold-hearted for wanting the U.S. border secure, while also painted as deeply racist if they bring up the proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.
None - New - York - Times - Claims
None other than the left-leaning New York Times just showed how silly these claims are, however. It turns out that barriers — yes, even walls — work pretty well for increasing security after all.
On Wednesday, keen observers noticed that the newspaper which attacked Trump over his proposed wall had added large, ugly concrete blocks around the perimeter of its headquarters.
Barrier - Part - Efforts - Security - Headquarters
The new barrier is “part of our continuing efforts to enhance security at our headquarters building,” a representative from the famous newspaper told The Washington Examiner.
A photo from Times employee Alastair Coote showing the concrete barrier was posted on Twitter Wednesday morning, prompting people to note the irony.
Paper - Editorial - Board - President - Trump
“The paper’s left-leaning editorial board opposes President Trump’s proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border,” explained The Examiner.
Indeed, an April think-piece from the editorial board of The New York Times mocked the southern wall concept as “irrational,” while also calling plans to use National Guard personnel at the border “foolish” and “spiteful.”
Barriers - Fences - Walls - Parts - Security
Do you think that physical barriers like fences and walls are key parts of security?
Poll - Tribune - News - Updates - Charge
Yes, in that paper’s view, only spite can explain using tried-and-true methods of stopping unauthorized access to an area. It couldn’t possibly be that barriers which physically impede entry are used at every secure location in America, from court houses to embassies and The White House.
