Remember Time Magazine's devastating Obama Immigration Policy cover?

Nope?  Neither do I.  Maybe I just missed it.

Memo: It's increasingly likely that much of the political Left doesn't give a damn about immigrants, babies or otherwise.  They can rot for all it cares.  It sees them as convenient for the time being.  When no longer convenient, off to the old shoe pile.  The same goes for murder rates, crime rates, poor, suffering, AIDS, racism or anything.  It matters when it's beneficial for it to matter.  Otherwise, not so much.

A note for Christians worth remembering: the Christian view is that we must do the right thing for the right reason.  Doing the right thing for the wrong reason is ultimately no better than doing the wrong thing for the right reason.  We won't get into doing the wrong thing for the wrong reason.  Though we may need to explain that some day.

UPDATE: Ooops. It looks like the little girl crying was not really crying for the reasons the picture suggest.  That reminds me of the editorial cartoon following the Oklahoma City Bombing, where the sad photo of the fireman cradling a dead infant.  The editorial cartoon reproduced the photo perfectly, but added a thought bubble for the fireman that said "Damn Limbaugh."  The fireman, IIRC, was outraged at the thought that he would care about politics while holding a dead infant.  But such is the emergent Left.  Ethics and common decency stop dead when it involves advancing the political Left.

UPDATE II: Double Ooops Ooops. I'm starting to lose track of all the times Trump was said to have lied about the border situation when he didn't, photos that turn out to be fake, and statements that turn out to be false.  So it turns out the caged children photo, the one that helped jump start the "Trump Incarnates Auschwitz" backlash against the policies that he invented for the first time in history, is also a fraud.  It turns out the children were not caged by the Gestapo American ICE agents under orders of Hitler/Trump.  Instead, the pictures are from the kerfuffle around The Deportation That Cannot Be Mentioned (that is, the deporting and separating of Immigrants under Obama).  Yes, some liberals did complain.  But there is an eternal difference between "We really don't like what you're doing to immigrants Obama - we love you dude!", and "From now on Hitler is an angel compared to the True Spawn of Satanic Hell Trump and the American Holocaust!"  Again, consider that much of the outrage is likely fake, convenient, and only for advancing political power for the Left.  Any other explanation, and I'm afraid it just doesn't make sense compared to the emerging truth.

UPDATE III: OK, so it's getting crazy.  It's been brought to my attention that Mark Shea also posted on this as proof of Trump/Hitler.  It was pointed out to Mark that the picture was fake, that is technically a lie.  We all remember the Great Lila Rose disaster of 2011, when Mark, Dawn Eden, and a host of Catholic bloggers decided to make lying the premier issue of the day.  If we found that Planned Parenthood was selling body parts of unborn babies for profit, that was hardly more important than Christians encouraging lying.  That was the Law.  So one would expect Mark to be consistent, right?  Sorry, the only thing consistent about Mark Shea is that almost everything he once called good he now calls evil, and everything he called evil he now calls good (or at least defends or ignores).  So Mark made it clear that the truthfulness of the image is irrelevant next to the horrors of the border.  Unlike 2011 when he made it clear babies dismembered and sold for profit were bad, but nothing next to the horrors of lying.  Flee apologists who make it their profession to call good what they once called evil, and evil what they once called good.

    1. Got it. I think. I'm having a hard time keeping up with all of the things turning out to be false that have been said and posted about this in the last couple weeks. Now if only Mark and company would say Immigration is important, but we must now focus on lying for Jesus! I'll hold my breath.

  2. I stand corrected. Apparently someone tried to point out to Mark that the photo was fake. Mark fired back that whether it was true or not is irrelevant. The important thing is the children suffering at the border. Sort of like how he used to say whether people lied or not to uncover abortion abuses didn't matter, but aborting babies and selling baby parts is what matters. No, strike that. Once again we have a Mark Shea 180. At least he's consistent.

    Other Facebook photos from the protest, organized by the Texas chapter of the Brown Berets de Cemanahuac, a Latino advocacy group, show the same boy outside the cage as activists hold signs urging the White House to "stop separating families."


    Well my heart has turned to stone now. I just can't believe anything else about this any more.

    1. A Protest Stunt from 2014. Not as a result of Trump's policies. There have been so many twists and turns about what Trump has and hasn't lied about, what is really happening, and so many things that have turned out to be fraudulent and false, it's almost impossible to have an informed opinion.
