Peak Irony: Mexico Wants To Build The Wall To Stop Illegal Immigration

One of the largest newspapers along Mexico’s border with Texas is calling for a border wall with Central America, similar to the one being promoted by Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump.

The editorial board of El Mañana, one of the largest newspapers in the border state of Tamaulipas, penned a piece called “Yes to the Border Wall … but in Mexico’s South.” The piece praises the idea of border wall, not on the border with Mexico, but on the border with Central America

Why even bother to comment? Hypocrisy at its ultimate. You'd almost think they're Dumbocraps.

1. The DNC conventionion,

It's just outright racist, ya'll.

3. The funding provided by Congress allows for a much more substantial wall

4. Then why are all the Bagz getting their asses in a bunch over this "wall" at the DNC?

It's almost like you're on the verge of hysterics over it.

6. How so? They put up a fence that you're calling a wall.

Do you understand the difference between up and down?

How about black and white?

10. This "fence" as you call it...

...is a metaphor that highlights the irony of the corrupt Democrat Party.

Wall or fence, it's there to keep undesirables out. It's not there to keep people in the convention, it for keeping people out.

Just like the wall President Trump will build, it will keep undesirables out.

16. It's funny that the RNC had to struggle to keep Dems out, and the DNC has to struggle to keep Dems

out.

7. That's not a bad idea. It would help Mexico to minimize drug incoming drug smuggling.

9. This is very easy to understand.

Mexico, with lesser resources than ours, can't vet the people coming across their southern border, and can't provide for them. Once in Mexico, even those who are basically decent people, lacking the means to survive, may become easy prey to drug cartels who can recruit them as 'mules' to take drugs across our border. Some of them may themselves be members of South American drug cartels. If we build our wall, they'll be stuck with these people and probably don't have the resources to round them up and deport them. If we don't build it, they will become our problem, easing Mexico's law enforcement headache. At least, that's my theory.

11. Some Mexicans think the U.S. still belongs to Mexico

and will be subject to "reconquista". Whether someone builds a wall or not should be up to them in their minds, not us. It doesn't seem to matter to them that Texas was part of Mexico for only 15 years and California was Mexican for only 27 years. Before that, Mexico itself belonged to Spain.

14. The continental United States?

Never heard that one. I don't even think most of Mexico was controlled by the Aztecs.

18. The Aztecs were invaders

The original inhabitants of the valley were Majicans who were overcome by invaders from the north who created the ruling class that called themselves Aztecs.

15. No, I was referring to Mexico in response to the last sentence.

Their territory reached from Guatemala and other parts of Central America to Central Mexico. To be more accurate, I should refer not only to the Aztecs (more correctly, the Mexica) but to the Nahua culture in general. While the Mexica were strong and had a relatively advanced culture, the Spanish conquistadores destroyed that culture, bringing them mostly disease and the Inquisition.
