From Ace:

Because the US Stood Up to the Border Rushers and Refused to Let This Tactic Win, No Matter How Much Bad Press the Administration Got For It, Migrants Start Saying They Regret Joining the Caravan and Start Heading Home

Hey NeverTrumpers — tell me that your precious Maaaario or Jeb! or John Kasich would have faced the fire and simply said, “NO.”

TIJUANA, Mexico–After fleeing tear gas shot at the U.S. border, Carlos Gonzalez confessed confusion and second thoughts about the caravan that carried him to doorstep of his dream: life in the United States.The 40-year-old corn farmer from Honduras, wearing a pink breast cancer awareness hat and an orange work vest, had hopped on the caravan of Central American migrants figuring it would facilitate his entry into the country. It set out from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Oct. 12 and for five weeks he could hope and dream–especially as the caravan pushed past police barricades and crossed through closed borders in Guatemala and Mexico.

But the U.S. border has proved impossible so far for the more than 7,000 migrants anxiously arriving in Tijuana, where they’re waiting in the squalor of a small baseball stadium-turned-tent city. It’s just a stone’s throw from the border they hope to cross, which many could not imagine would be so difficult.

“I thought it would be easy,” said Gonzalez, who traveled north with his wife and two children, ages 4 and 3. He said his family was planning to sign up with Mexican officials for voluntary repatriation.

Hey Erick Erickson — he’s going back home and all we needed was to defend the fence. We didn’t have to fund authoritarian regimes dropping dissenters out of helicopters. We just had to say “NO.” We just had to stop pissing our pants and bowing to leftist media pressure as our cucked party always does (due to the cuck pants-shitters who lead it and fancy themselves as real stalwarts).

The migrants freely admit their tactic is to front their columns with human shields go garner sympathy:

Women and children were walking at the front of the march, he said, “to see if they would let them enter.”

But saying “NO” to predictable and tired tactics, and the hand-in-glove cooperation of leftwing NGOs, “protesters,” and media operations all working to achieve leftwing agenda points, has changed some minds:

Corrales, wearing a yellow soccer jersey, expressed few complaints with the camp, where he sold single cigarettes to fellow migrants. He thought the caravan’s experience crossing into Guatemala and Mexico would prove the template for the U.S. border.But now, “I’m done with the United States. I’ll stay [in Mexico, which offered him asylum].”

More to that post that is on point, and amusing. You really should read it.

Funny how that works, isn’t. All we had to do was to say what we mean and mean what we say. There’s still plenty trying of course, but the word is filtering through. Uncle Sugar isn’t playing word games anymore. He means it.

And even better, it starts to look like Mexico means it as well. The ones identified trying to jump the border are now on their way home, they’ve been deported from Mexico.

I’m no hard ass really. Many of these people I feel sorry for, and wouldn’t mind a bit if they came to America (not including the animals of MS 13, the terrorists sponsored by Hamas, and other assorted dregs). There are a lot of poor suckers in that caravan, just looking for a better life, and who can blame them.

Although it would be better for all of us if they worked hard to improve their own country. You know, like generations of Americans have.

They are likely not really asylum cases though, the actual rules are pretty strict, ask Elian Gonzales down in Cuba, thanks to Bill Clinton. But there is no reason why many of them couldn’t apply to emigrate here.

Not as easy as jumping an open border but a lot safer for everybody. It’s the right way to do it.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, civilization continues to unravel.

    Funny, I never saw such behavior until the mid 90’s when my wife and I along with our 2 young children were trying to have lunch at a ‘respectfully normal’ restaurant while a young, loud couple spewed their profanity in almost every sentence. It makes me believe that Darwin had it wrong about evolution or else he never thought of the possibility of devolution as another possibility.

          Yeah, ‘rain’bows and arrows pointing to unisex bathrooms are all good protections I reckon. But nobody warned me that spitting at, cursing at and beating down people who remind them that their behavior isn’t civil suddenly became acceptable. I must have missed that one. They should have blown them kisses instead of criticizing them.

          I guess I’m a dinosaur because I can still remember going to a billiard parlor where they hung signs that said NO PROFANITY and NO SPITTING in large letters on the walls . . . and they meant it. That was in the days when they would have thrown you out of their establishment or had you arrested for such a violation. But in our more enlightened day we are more civilized than that.

          I note that nobody stopped the first one from standing on the counter to begin with. So I guess that’s common practice in the Wawa stores. My bad. Just getting too old and I’m no longer ‘with it’ . . . and I thought I was part of the ‘in’ generation.

          My father refers to people going feral when things are really out of control. We have made a slow climb out of our beginnings. Granted much of what we call “civilisation” is ungodly, but that does not entail behaving like that. Self-control is very important and these days, in the absence of anyone else preaching it, seems to have become the preaching preserve of Christianity. Where are the stoics now?

          Indeed – scary. The Lord created mankind as a family unit – and families became clans, clans became tribes, and tribes became nations. They want us to submit to their invisible tyrant, to the Dragon, his beast, and his false prophet. Well, nuts to that.

          Well he is having his day and will continue to have his day until somebody starts confronting him for the tyrant he is. As St. Ignatius said, “The enemy is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed. In a quarrel with a man, it is natural for a woman to lose heart and run away when he faces up to her; on the other hand, if the man begins to be afraid and to give ground, her rage, vindictiveness and fury overflow and know no limit.”

          Women also have the old crying trick and that is a fitting metaphor for how traditional people have been manipulated by a false gospel, a false irenicism, that undermines masculinity and bravery. Who now praises John Bunyan for standing up to prevailing opinions? No one. Why because they do not like his message. So it will be to the rest of us who oppose this cultural tyranny. We may not face prison – though some do – but they will get us by other means: ostracism; job rejections; law suits; fines; etc.

          Yes, I meet with several fellows every Tuesday night for dinner and conversation . . . but we are on the same page. I would like to open this up to many others for discussion and a meal but there would have to be ground rules and an understanding that argumentation can be good and robust if we leave emotion and feelings to the side. Let us disagree but retain our friendship. Then, perhaps, you might be able to persuade people one way or another on a host of issues. Without such rules and foundations then it is worse that useless as it destroys respect and friendships alike.

They whooped the greatest armies that they met and they executed cowards. Now I do not condone the latter as a Christian practice, but it does illustrate the point that we rise and fall together.
