“The Silence of the Lambs:”
Lecter: First principles, Clarice. Simplicity. Read MarcusAurelius. Of each particular thing, ask what is it initself? What is its nature? What does he do, thisman you seek?
Lecter: :He kills women.He kills women.
Lecter: No. That is incidental. What is the first andprinciple thing he does? What needs does he serve bykilling?
Now, with regard to pearl-clutching and sniffy, weepy moaning about “separating families,” you’ll forgive me while I play the part of Hannibal Lecter.
Ask yourself of the Left, what is it in itself? What is its nature? And what does the Left seek?
Do they care about children and families?
No, that is incidental.
What is the first and principle thing the Left seeks? What need do they serve by howling about “separating families?”
The first and principle thing the Left seeks is Power.
This isn’t about Christian values or concern for families.
Not in the least.
It’s about Power.
The Left lost it.
And they will do anything to get it back.
It isn’t about charity; it’s about Power.
Raw, unfettered Power.
These illegal aliens who are detained for violating our laws – and even their children – matter not one bit to the Left.
They are nothing but a tool – a carefully crafted talking point to sway public opinion so that the Left can regain Power.
And when you understand the First Principle at work here, all these weepy, emotional pleas roll right off of you like rain a slicker.
Because it’s nothing but the latest manipulation tactic the Left has seized upon to regain power.
Crying over refugees from terrorist countries didn’t work.I'll sell you some Kleenex..
