IMHO the optics were the entire mission.
Oh you poor sweet summer kids are entirely out of your depth.

Voting for Democrats was supposed to fix this bullshiat. Unfortunately they love it as much as Trumpers do. We still have concentration camps and everything. It's farking sickening.

Shut the fark up with your "Blame Dems First" agenda

Can we defund the (border) police yet?

Democrats, what's your tipping point? One would think that whipping black people seeking refuge would be a step too far.

/Republicans would think it's a good start
//The Haitians are fleeing a country farked over by Obama/Biden and Clinton's response to the 2010 earthquake. Of course the Democrats want to whip them out of the country
///But, let's not talk about the CBP whipping people before deporting them. To do that would mean coming to terms with Joe Biden's disastrous border policies
 
2021-09-21 8:50:53 AM  
More like they didn't care.

\ain't it great that Biden is using Trump's "disease-ridden immigrants" rule to expell Haitian refugees?

I'm curious as hell where CPB came up with whips.  Is that part of the traditional CBP uniform?

"They were putting people on a bus and sent them to Haiti just like that without signing anything," Isner said.

That's one long bus ride.

This is AFTER a housecleaning when Biden came into office.  Just abolish the whole department.  They are *very bad*.
 
2021-09-21 8:51:49 AM  
Nothing justifies this macho tiny-dick-energy bullshiat. I doubt Biden knew CBP would chase Haitians down in the river with horses and whips. Some serious housecleaning needs to be done.

Mayorkas has been on TV this morning discussing the investigation and making it clear now that the violent horse charging and whipping was unacceptable.

The video is worth a watch - these run down people are being told not to try and pass the agents but they just slowly keep walking through, get whipped and pushed back, and do the same thing again and again.
 
2021-09-21 8:54:03 AM  
In Grand Theft Auto for PS2, there's a segment where you're supposed to rob these Haitian drug dealers and it flashes across the screen "Shoot the Haitians!" and I'm thinking "Should you be saying that?  That doesn't sound good."

It's reins, not whips. Horses have reins for control.

This is a symptom of a much deeper sickness.

Let me know when the Democrats decide to deal with the illness (Border police, ICE, DHS) rather than posing this as an aberration.

It's entirely fabricated, just like AOC claiming illegal aliens were drinking toilet water.

The aren't whips.  Some city slicker who has probably never seen a horse before mistook horse tack for whips.

I have loved how conservatives have looked at all these images of refugees being repelled/kept at the border for processing and claiming "this is proof that the border is open under Biden".

There are some real treats on Twitter saying 'They aren't whips, they're reins', as if beating black people is less reprehensible than using the proper nomenclature.

In fact, if that's your takeaway, you are a racist.

There is zero evidence the reins were used to whip anyone.  Also, using reins to whip someone would be a terrible decision given that the reins are used to steer and control the horse that the person is riding.

Do Haitians speak English? I know they are from the French-speaking side of the island.

Gotta love the "The long thin strips of leather with which the CPB agents were striking brown people from horseback were technically attached to the bit, so despite them being intended for ground leading and these agents using the extra length as a weapon, the important thing to remember is that they weren't technically whips.  Nor were they switches nor lassos.

A couple of officers will get a paid vacation that they'll call a "suspension." And then they'll declare the problem solved. Meanwhile, they'll find the context that Jen Psaki claims she doesn't have to make excuses for the horrific behavior.

Yeah, we know how this works.

Y'all are seriously ignorant about riding horses and why one would never use their reins as a whip.

You gotta wonder if the house cleaning they did got deep enough.

If you look at Fox News during the day they will often cut to a shot of immigrants coming across the Rio Grande.  Only to then get caught by waiting CBP officers.  Followed by an appearance of the CBP union rep decrying a weak admin.

I know we can't just defund an entire federal agency overnight (it would be cool if we could) but at very least a general stand down of everything except for controlled border crossing and ports should be put on hold while a deep dive is performed.

Some people right here on Fark are doing the same thing.

Reins hurt just as bad as crops if you get hit with them, just saying.

And here I thought the WORST thing we'd done was the detention camps. This is just disgusting.

That's not how you kit a horse to ride, champ.  It's actually really farking dangerous to ride with loose tack like that.  Which means it was chosen for ... another reason.

But you lick those tasty tasty boots.

Hmmm Democratic President, Democratic controlled House and Senate(barely)...gee, I wonder why folks are miffed with Democratic inaction concerning CBP, I mean they really shouldn't be surprised.
