Liberals Are Furious About ICE – What About the IRS and NSA?

Last week, New York University adjunct professor Sam Lavigne doxxed (basically, revealing personal information about a person online) – 1,595 ICE employees when he published their full names and home addresses to a repository on his GitHub account. According to Lavigne, he published the information “with the hope that researchers, journalists, and activists will find it useful.”

Thankfully, GitHub removed the files and suspended Lavigne’s account – but not before Antifa could pick up the information and spread it to their followers on Twitter. A few days later, an unidentified DHS official found a burned and decapitated animal carcass on his front porch.

Lavigne’s reprehensible actions are the latest in a growing wave of liberal harassment, intimidation, and violence against members of the Trump administration and ICE employees specifically. Just days before Lavigne published his cache, Occupy Wall Street encouraged their followers to murder ICE agents. Earlier this week, an ICE agent’s ankle was broken as he attempted to shield an elderly woman from protesters.

It’s getting so bad, many Americans think a second civil war is on the horizon.

But despite the burgeoning violence, President Donald Trump has remained steadfast. Speaking at a rally in Fargo, N.D., Wednesday, he issued a stern warning to extremist liberals that their “shameless attacks” will not be tolerated:

“Left-wing activists are trying to block ICE officers from doing their jobs and publicly posting their home addresses, putting these incredible people and their families in harm’s way.

These radical Democrat protesters, they really want anarchy, but the only response they will find from our government is very strong law and order. We will not tolerate attacks on our law enforcement. We will protect our law enforcement like they protect us. We will always stand proudly with our brave heroes of ICE, the Border Patrol, the sheriffs, the police. Yes, the firemen. The firemen are sometimes under attack if you can believe it. The firemen, these are great people. And we have their backs.”

To drive Trump’s point home: extremist liberals are attacking people who are just trying to keep Americans safe. Every other country in the world refuses to tolerate people illegally crossing their borders, so why should the United States? ICE and Border Patrol are the front line keeping America safe from criminals intent on doing harm. What’s so terrible about that? If liberals really want to fight injustice, there are far greater enemies they could oppose. Take, for example, the IRS and NSA.

Unlike Border Patrol, the Internal Revenue Service is pointless. Not only does the intrusive IRS make the tax filing process needlessly complicated, but it’s become a partisan agency that’s used by leftwing bureaucrats as a political weapon against conservative organizations and individuals. Where was all the outrage when Lois Lerner got away with discriminating against members of the Tea Party? It was one-sided, because the left is perfectly okay with their opponents being unfairly targeted.

As for the NSA, they’re still invading the privacy of innocent Americans everywhere. Just this week, The Intercept published a report exposing the existence of “hidden spy hubs” stationed in eight major cities across the U.S. These buildings, all AT&T facilities, “are central to an NSA spying initiative that has for years monitored billions of emails, phone calls, and online chats passing across U.S. territory.”

Remember back during the Bush administration when liberals used to (pretend to) care about unaccountable bureaucrats invading our privacy and violating our constitutional rights? And then their silence during the Obama administration?

Again: where is the outrage? It’s sadly limited to extremely narrow, partisan boogeymen. And in this case, it’s being used to put Americans last. Just look at this (and we apologize in advance that it is from CNN):

Liberals would do well to gain some perspective and realize that the people they’re demonizing are the ones trying to protect our country. If they want to find the real boogeymen, they should pay less attention to the border and more attention to their fellow Democrats in Washington, D.C.

  • Illegal means criminal behavior. this hoopla over children is bogus. First it never takes into account the responsibility of the parents to prevent their families from being parted. These are activists not parents using their children as props. Who would use their child that way? Liberals they do it all the time with their moral turpitude one should only be surprised that they haven;t already tried to make legislation to terminate babies after they emerge from the womb to the age of what walking or speaking? Or the age at which the child can argue they are a viable life form. I m not looking to a bunch of illegals and drug smugglers for a lesson in moral behavior in the treatment of children basically abandoned by the parents they might as well throw them at the border.

  • Just when you think the libs have reached the bottom, they break out the shovels and dig to an even lower bottom.

  • Getting rid of ICE would end in them being replaced by US Marshals in the interior and military on the Borders. That might not meet their needs over time. 28,000 troops with guard armed posts every 500 yards for a total of 7,000 posts would be better than a wall. They are not equipped to arrest invaders - just repulse them. The consequences to the invaders might not be made right in their lifetime.

  • they are creating all this to destroy America, then blame it on Trump.. creating is the key word. Mostly you see the young people who are clueless of history, the mafia and really what is going on for years. Much of it is also a smoke screen because they know crap is about to come down on them .

  • These are NOT people who love our country, are PATRIOTS, and believe in the RULE of LAW! They're communist puppets, just like their False IDOL! Wants to get rid of EVERYTHING that makes this country SAFE, prosperous, and at PEACE! Let GOD take them in hand! He's dealt with rabid, radical, depraved HATERS since Adam committed the first sin!

  • There is a saying. "Be careful what you ask for, you just may get it". Well, if the socialist ask for a civil war, remember, the last time was over a minority being mistreated. This time, it may be over a majority being mistreated. The conservatives. And if they are true to their leaders, they will show up to a gun fight with a knife. There are people out there, that don't have a clue what is going on, with all this in the news everyday. So, what makes you think they will hear the call to vote in conservatives? All of the liberals(socialist to me) and half the "conservatives" voted for the last socialist president we had, you know, the one that lied every time he opened his mouth. So, do we really think that people like that, will actually vote for a true conservative? All of them lie so much, it is hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. Remember Alice Cooper? His song, No more mister nice guy, applies here.

  • TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE' HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2018, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT

  • 1. Post Lavigne name and address, then forget about it.
    2. President Trump should ask for volunteer security people for the administration people and the physical plants. I would give my government 90 days a year free, supply my own weapons and ammo and sleeping bag, All it would cost the government is 2 MRE's a day.
    It is time to start putting the liberal garbage down
