And this from Berlin Mayor Michael Müller:
Müller’s statement has been widely circulated and greeted with joyful ululations among clueless Leftist millennials. Apparently there wasn’t time back in high school to take a break from teaching about how the U.S. was founded by white male slaveowners and has a history of oppression, racism and imperialism, and so the self-righteous Left today largely doesn’t know or care that the Berlin Wall was constructed by a totalitarian Leftist government in order to keep people in, not out.
Trump’s border wall, by contrast, is simply a national security initiative. But the President of Iran, whose regime has ordered its citizens to chant “Death to America” every week in the mosques, clearly has a vested interest in opposing any step the U.S. takes to defend its citizens. The Mayor of Berlin, on the other hand, who of all people should know better, is putting his self-righteous globalist Leftism above the safety of his own people.
It’s ironic to see Leftists referring to the Berlin Wall as if they oppose it. They never did while it actually existed, and recoiled in horror when Ronald Reagan declared, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
