Michelle Malkin: Who’s funding the wicked war on ICE?
All the gun control zealots out in full force this month have apparently gone to the beach. An alarming shooting took place at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Antonio on Tuesday. The Second Amendment saboteurs were AWOL.
Federal government workers are under literal fire for enforcing our immigration laws and protecting America. But the left-wing Moms Demand Action ignored the story. So did the anti-gun Brady Campaign agitators. And the usual stampede of camera-hogging Democratic presidential candidates lost their unquenchable thirst for the spotlight to blame “hate speech” for inducing violence.
The vacuum is bipartisan. With few exceptions, Beltway Republicans have also lost their tongues when they should be smashing the wall of silence about this escalating anti-ICE terror campaign. The San Antonio attack comes just one month after an antifa extremist ambushed an ICE detention facility in Tacoma, Wash., armed with a rifle and incendiary devices. The gunman had assaulted a police officer last year at the same location, received a wrist slap, and then published a manifesto that declared: “I strongly encourage comrades and incoming comrades to arm themselves.”
The Tacoma terrorist had also invoked the incendiary ICE-bashing rhetoric of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her diatribes on ICE centers as “concentration camps” were, in turn, borrowed from and amplified by rent-a-mobsters who demonized Homeland Security employees at a string of summer demonstrations against ICE facilities the past two years.
The same hysterical demagogues are silent about the climate of hate wrought by:
• The New York Times op-ed page’s brazen call to target (for shaming) ICE and Border Patrol agents and their families.
• WikiLeaks’ “ICE Patrol” personal information and location database targeting more than 9,000 ICE employees.
• Twitter’s publication of bloody hate speech by antifa and Abolish ICE thugs.
Who’s funding the wicked war on ICE? For starters, open borders billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, his son Alex’s Jewish social justice nonprofit Bend the Arc, Soros-backed CREDO Action, and the Soros-funded Center for Popular Democracy, United We Dream and Make the Road New York have all subsidized and stoked hatred of ICE and the Border Patrol.
Even more shocking is how much of the toxic propaganda undermining the men and women on our Homeland Security frontlines is being underwritten by unsuspecting taxpayers, churchgoers and consumers.
In the coming weeks, I will be exposing the global financiers and government programs promoting the campaign to “melt ICE,” turn the Border Patrol into the “diaper patrol,” open the floodgates to every last unvetted Muslim refugee and unassimilated, low-wage Central American laborer, and erase the America my legal immigrant parents taught me to cherish.
My forthcoming book, “Open Borders Inc.: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction,” traces tens of billions of dollars spent or received by 400-plus nonprofits, religious charities, legal organizations, political lobbying groups, businesses and government contractors.
Border security and restored sovereignty start with defunding the funders of America’s destruction, and then prosecuting them as criminal open borders racketeers. Follow the money; find the truth.
