history does more than just "rhyme."
"The Children" is one of the left's favorite cards.
It's ALL politics: https://tinyurl.com/yylvzsmx
Look at what playing the kiddie card has gotten us into in the past: It's
worth noting that when kids are trotted out for political reasons, it's
because that side has run out of ideas and is desperate, so it tries to tug
on heartstrings. Things haven't changed much in the last 100 years.
In WWI, the Euros were so hard-up to get the U.S. involved in the
"European War" that posters and illustrations of children being abused and
killed by German soldiers were circulated throughout the U.S. 100 years
later, many historians still feel we were "duped" into sending 110,000
American doughboys to their deaths.
Small wonder that the U.S. balked at involvement in another European war:
Students of WWII will remember the famous 1937 photo of the toddler at the
railway station in Shanghai during a Japanese bombardment. It later turned
out to be staged, with the photographer placing the child on the platform.
There's also evidence it was faked outright, with the kid and the platform
photographed separately and then combined (note the "burning in," the light
area around the child's body). Humanitarian Clare Boothe Luce, wife of Time
magazine founder Henry Luce, did everything she could to give the pic wide
dissemination. Hubby Henry finally tired of wifey's histrionics and
reportedly said, "People don't want to read about yellow men killing yellow
In the early 60's kids were used as an excuse to get us involved in Vietnam:
Ten years later they were used to get us out of Vietnam:
At the beginning of the First Gulf War in 1991, there was a story about
invading Iraqi troops dumping hundreds of Kuwaiti babies out of their
incubators and leaving them to die . The MSM ate it right up without
checking on sources. It later turned out to be a hoax, cooked up by the
daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the U.S.: http://tinyurl.com/46b83yr
Now the kiddie card is being played again, for the sake of bleeding-heart
leftists who want to see refugees pouring in from all over the world. Were
it not for the Web, we wouldn't know better, at least not right away. Sure,
a Syrian toddler drowned, but he didn't wash up on the beach. His body
was found in the water among some rocks nearby. Photographers asked the
Turkish soldier to stage the picture by laying him out at the water's edge,
and that's where they fucked up: http://tinyurl.com/otemsyj
And daddy Abdullah's story is bullshit: http://tinyurl.com/ojcgvzp
His family was given FREE housing in Turkey and had been there for THREE
years. Abdullah Kurdi was not in any war zone. He was safe, he had food, he
had over 13,000 Turkish Lira, ($4,400) in cash: https://tinyurl.com/y2myvs2b
Oh, and BTW, that "refugee" who was carrying a child when he was tripped by
that Hungarian reporter has turned out to be nothing less than a war
criminal: http://rudaw.net/english/middleeast/syria/20092015. Spain decided
to take him in because he's allegedly a good soccer player.
Most recently beaner babies in "caravans" are the subject of choice among
the Democrats and their leftist lackeys in the MSM:
[SIGH] The more things change, the more they stay the same. And when this
whole "refugee" bomb blows up in everyone's faces, they'll wonder, "How
could we have been so naïve?" Hopefully, I'll still be around to say, "See,
I told you so!"
