Voices of CPAC 2017 Joe on Life behind the Berlin Wall

I have a lot of inter­views still upload­ing and sev­eral that I intend to post today as time per­mits but the inter­view worth being the lead post today come from what would seem an unlikely source & situation.

I ran into Joe at an infor­mal event called #rinocon that Cyn­thia Yockey & I briefly attended to mix with a few CPAC blog­ger friends some old some new. We got there early see­ing Jeff Dunetz (yid with lid now the lid) and Erik Svane (No Pasaran) but the big names Didn’t show while we were there so we didn’t stay long, but I was there long enough for Erik to re-​introduce me to Joe who in the course of con­ver­sa­tion informed me that he lived in East Berlin while going to school in West Berlin (his father was a diplo­mat) and thus daily crossed the wall that meant death for other who might con­sider try­ing to do so.

I had never heard of such a thing and con­sid­ered it so unique that I inter­viewed him on the spot to hear the story and also to ask about the com­par­i­son the left is con­stantly mak­ing between the bor­der wall that Pres­i­dent Trump will build and the wall in Berlin.

This inter­view is impor­tant because it demon­strates the non­sense here.

In East Berlin you had a wall ille­gally put up by a soviet con­trolled gov­ern­ment look­ing to keep peo­ple who wished to leave in, much in the same way that the same Sovi­ets that the anti-​trump folks revere divided Ger­many and kept peo­ple enslaved in the east.

Mean­while in Mex­ico a bunch of peo­ple are leav­ing their coun­try, which is appar­ently not a place they want to live, and head into the United States which for all of the faults that our friends on the left claim it has, is appar­ently where the rest of the world wants to be.

How­ever they aren’t will­ing to bother with the busi­ness of com­ing in legally like hun­dreds of thou­sands of oth­ers from all over the world.

The left should be ashamed of them­selves for com­par­ing those risk­ing their lives to escape ille­gal impris­on­ment to free­dom to those vio­lat­ing ours laws to enter our coun­try because they don’t like their own. How­ever that shame would involve learn­ing the actual his­tory of Com­mu­nism in gen­eral and East Ger­many and I sus­pect that’s a bridge too far.

So they will remain scream­ing igno­rant out­rage and com­par­ing them­selves to actual heroes with­out being heroic because it’s so much eas­ier. Kinda sad really.

I have a lot of interviews still uploading and several that I intend to post today as time permits but the interview worth being the lead post today come from what would seem an unlikely source & situation.

I ran into Joe at an informal event called #rinocon that Cynthia Yockey & I briefly attended to mix with a few CPAC blogger friends some old some new. We got there early seeing Jeff Dunetz (yid with lid now the lid) and Erik Svane (No Pasaran) but the big names Didn’t show while we were there so we didn’t stay long, but I was there long enough for Erik to re-introduce me to Joe who in the course of conversation informed me that he lived in East Berlin while going to school in West Berlin (his father was a diplomat) and thus daily crossed the wall that meant death for other who might consider trying to do so.

I had never heard of such a thing and considered it so unique that I interviewed him on the spot to hear the story and also to ask about the comparison the left is constantly making between the border wall that President Trump will build and the wall in Berlin.

This interview is important because it demonstrates the nonsense here.

In East Berlin you had a wall illegally put up by a soviet controlled government looking to keep people who wished to leave in, much in the same way that the same Soviets that the anti-trump folks revere divided Germany and kept people enslaved in the east.

Meanwhile in Mexico a bunch of people are leaving their country, which is apparently not a place they want to live, and head into the United States which for all of the faults that our friends on the left claim it has, is apparently where the rest of the world wants to be.

However they aren’t willing to bother with the business of coming in legally like hundreds of thousands of others from all over the world.

The left should be ashamed of themselves for comparing those risking their lives to escape illegal imprisonment to freedom to those violating ours laws to enter our country because they don’t like their own. However that shame would involve learning the actual history of Communism in general and East Germany and I suspect that’s a bridge too far.

So they will remain screaming ignorant outrage and comparing themselves to actual heroes without being heroic because it’s so much easier. Kinda sad really.
