Trump’s heartland voters shrug off global uproar over immigration ban

Many of President Donald Trump’s core political supporters had a simple message on Sunday for the fiercest opponents of his immigration ban: Calm down.

The relaxed reaction among the kind of voters who drove Trump’s historic upset victory – working- and middle-class residents of Midwest and the South – provided a striking contrast to the uproar that has gripped major coastal cities, where thousands of protesters flocked to airports where immigrants had been detained.

In the St. Louis suburb of Manchester, Missouri, 72-year-old Jo Ann Tieken characterized the president as bringing reason into an overheated debate.

“Somebody has to stand up, be the grown up and see what we can do better to check on people coming in,” she said. “I’m all for everybody to stop and take a breath … Just give it a chance.”

There really is no “uproar that has gripped major coastal cities.”  A small handful of the Soros rent-a-mob has shown up at airports to show off and show out.  There were even a few hundred at Lambert yesterday; Ironically, major renovations to Lambert are part of Trump’s infrastructure wish list.

Interestingly, the Manslaughter Road drag through West County between Barrett Station and Clarkson is starting to fill up with mosques.

I recall the Boat People after the 1975 fall of South Vietnam. The Ford administration’s policy was to admit them. These were people who were supposedly on our side. The Left was against allowing the Boat People into the United States.

I remember George McGovern intoning They’re better off where they came from.” Jessie Jackson was adamantly against letting the South Vietnamese refugees in. I think The Nation magazine editorialized against admission.
Some on the Left used the “racist America is a bad place” trope.

It was somewhat embarrassing for liberals that so many were fleeing a Communist Paradise. Or insofar as a liberal can be embarrassed by the hypocrisy that defines them.

That was just D=Good, R=Bad politics. If that was Carter instead of Ford, every shitlib would’ve lauded him as the Messiah reincarnate. Just like when B.J.Clinton spoke of halting illegal wetbacks in his SotU Address, all the D’s applauded.
