Democrats correctly oppose wall funding
One wall is a human artifact, to be designed and built by engineers for the purpose, in concert with other resources such as technology and staffing, of having better operational control on America’s southwest border with Mexico.
The other wall is a talisman, a fetish, a charm for warding off evil and bestowing good fortune. Evil, in this case, is personified by immigrants and asylum seekers from black and brown nations — with religions, customs and languages distinguishing them from “real Americans.”
What we have with President Donald Trump’s wall fetish has nothing to do with operational border security and everything to do with the symbolic consignment to death of those who are
foreign in defense of a purified, white, monocultural America that never really existed.
And Democrats are right to refuse to waste $5 billion on such a morally corrupt project.
“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.” — Ephesians 2:13-14, New Revised Standard Version.
