Border Patrol pics were ‘misconstrued’ as whipping, photographer says

NYP: The photographer who captured the controversial images of Border Patrol agents using horses to keep Haitian migrants from entering the US says the images have been “misconstrued” as showing abusive behavior.

The agents depicted in the photos have been accused of using their horses’ reins to whip the migrants to prevent them from crossing the Rio Grande into Del Rio, Texas. An investigation into the situation is ongoing but photographer Paul Ratije says he never saw the agents whip anyone. more

  1. It’s amazing me people are so ignorant they don’t know what reins are.

    The border patrol agents should all just resign, not only are they not going to allow them to do their job they’re going to likely charge them with crimes for doing their job.

    We were talking last night and what needs to happen in this country and would prevent bloodshed is all cops, firefighters, ambulance, doctors, nurses, truck drivers, train engineers and farmers refuse to participate until they stop with the covid bullshit including masks and shots, secure our border and deport the illegals, send the Afghans elsewhere, and Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer and McConnell all resign.

    We still have power in this country if the right people would just do it, it would take no time for the people to demand the government give in to those demands when it meant no healthcare, nobody coming to put out fires, nobody coming to take you to the hospital, no law enforcement, no goods being shipped, no food.

  2. It’s not misinformation when they spread actual lies and deceit.

    How many social media posts have been removed and users banned for suggesting the illegals were whipped?

    None?

    Okay, maybe not intentionally. But surely some were banned “mistakenly” as always happens when a conservative suggests something.

    Still none? Imagine my surprise.

  3. The big “news” or MSM’s real game is to preserve the corruption that has fed them very, very well! They have no desire to make America great again or much less be her watchdog. They are very happy to push synthesized, centralized propaganda all day long!

    1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
    2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.
    3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country, and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
    4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don’t really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.
    5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn’t mind running the country, if they could find the time — and if they didn’t have to leave Southern California to do it.
    6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country two centuries ago and did a poor job of it.
    7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren’t too sure who’s running the country and don’t really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.
    8. The New York Post is read by people who don’t care who is running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.
    9. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores.
    10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren’t sure if there is a country or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped, minority, feminist, atheists, dwarfs, illegal aliens from any other country (or galaxy), provided of course, that they are not Republicans.
    11. The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.

  5. TRF: you forgot the Portland Oregonian: Read by people who don’t believe we should even be a country, since we stole the land from indigenous people. And reading is racist.

    The San Francisco Chronicle is alternative toilet paper for people who poop nowhere near plumbing.
