Cruelty, Based on Lies

Our President wants us to believe that his policies are designed to keep us safe, but he’s lying to us. And he’s doing his best to build a government based on lies.

Trump’s constant attacks on immigrants are perhaps the best example of how this President governs, and the country he hopes to build out of our America. He is using classic propaganda tactics to divide the country into us and them, and it’s working. Like most propaganda, his scapegoating is built on lies. As this opinion relates – with plenty of links to the facts that support it – immigrants are far less likely to commit crimes than people born in the U.S., they “boost[] labor force participation rates, productivity and wages and reduces unemployment rates for native-born American workers, whose skills these immigrants tend to complement,” and they contribute more to the public coffers than they take. But none of this information helps with the scapegoating, so the Administration suppresses reports that would reveal it, and Trump lies, constantly, to a base that seems eager to blame someone for something. Trump wants a government that picks winners and losers, often based on his distorted idea of reality.

Tom McClintock supports and repeats the lies and scapegoating. This is one of the many reasons we oppose Tom McClintock. California’s Fourth District, and this country, deserve better.
