RUSH: “We’ve gotta do something!” That’s what they wanted to create. The problem was the drug cartels were not crossing the border and buying the guns. The Obama administration was arranging for the guns to be bought and then transported to Mexico, and then they sat around and waited for the drug cartels and the other bad guys to start using guns that were easily traceable to American gun stores.
They wanted the American people to be outraged, but not at them. They didn’t intend for any of that to be learned. All they wanted was the news to be filled with stories about guns, easily obtained in American gun stores, getting into the hands of drug cartel thugs being used to shoot innocent people. The thought was that you would rise up in righteous indignation and demand instant brand-new gun control laws where everybody who had a gun would have to surrender it.
It backfired, didn’t work. The truth was learned, and everything I told you became public knowledge. Well, I think it’s possible the same type of scheme is in play here with these kids, these refugee kids. I think maybe the Regime is thinking along the same lines. It’s possible. Just an idea. You flood the southwestern United States with tens of thousands of the essence of innocence: Young children.
By definition, not self-sufficient; by definition, totally dependent; by definition, without their parents. You create, hopefully, in the public mind an outcry of outrage and sympathy. “How could we allow this to happen? We must do amnesty!” It could well be they’re thinking the same theoretical thoughts with this as they did with Fast and Furious.
That’s the charitable analysis, I might say. The truth is probably far more penetrating than that. But if you want to cut ’em some slack then you could say, “Well, they’re just trying to repeat Fast and Furious with illegal immigrant children instead of guns.” That could well be. But if you look at this through the prism of it being an election year, it all falls apart and doesn’t make sense.
