Border Crisis: What Glenn Beck Did Wrong
If we had a secure border this wouldn’t have been a problem in the first place.
Check it out:
Wednesday morning The Blaze’s Glenn Beck announced it was “deadly to my career” for him to provide truckloads of meals and soccer balls as a way to “help care for some of the roughly 60,000 underage refugees who have crossed into America illegally in 2014.”
Early Thursday morning on “Morning Joe,” the left-wing Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski did exactly what I feared the media would do after Beck’s announcement: they trashed conservatives who disagreed with Beck as lacking in compassion. Scarborough even mocked them as un-Christian. And they are not alone.
The problem isn’t what Beck did. The problem is how he did it.
Beck’s desire to help kids caught in a geopolitical crossfire through no fault of their own is laudable. We all want to help. I’ve yet to hear anyone argue that it’s wrong to use American taxpayer dollars to feed, house, and offer medical care to these children. No one opposes that.
Beck thinks more needs to be done.
