Words mean things. And to Democrats, words are the only thing, which is why they are literally tying themselves in semantic

knots over the southern border.

A few weeks ago, McClatchy News wrote, “There’s a strong constituency among Democrats for border barriers. Just don’t call it a concrete wall. While Democrats will not specify what they might propose next, one big clue came from [James] Clyburn [D-S.C.], a close Pelosi ally. Semantics matter, which is why he’s calling enhanced security a ‘smart wall.’”

On Feb. 11, NBC News reported, “Congressional negotiators said Monday night they had reached an ‘agreement in principle’ to prevent another partial government shutdown that would further fund border security but would include no money for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

“The deal would match 2018’s funding level for what officials described as new border fencing that could include steel slats and other ‘existing technologies’ but would not be a concrete wall. It would also provide an additional $1.7 billion for other Homeland Security priorities like new technology and more customs officers,” multiple sources told NBC News.

I’m sure we’ve all heard the latest argument, that a concrete border wall is racist. It’s like six degrees of separation. Anything with which the Democrats disagree will eventually lead back to racism.

Carl Bernstein says: “That – that – look at what we’re talking about. We’re talking about a wall here that is a symbol that says, ‘brown people, we don’t want you.’ …”

CNN’s Don Lemon claims “that the purpose of the wall is ‘to blatantly attempt to stir up fear of people of color, of brown people. As my colleague Chris [Cuomo] calls, the brown menace.’”
