It's not authentic unless Pelosi takes Loomer's kids away and put them in cages.

Pretty good publicity stunt, when you think about it.

I had to google who Laura Loomer is.

All I can say is that for a bunch of transphobic idiots, the right sure loves its manly women.

#7 Right. But if you had your way the rest of us would be subject to non-vetted illegal aliens, violent criminal, gangs, drug dealers, etc with open borders. Pelosi needs to take DOWN that fence and arm herself with a car antenna.

How has this nation managed to survive for this long without a wall?

Yes, if I had it my way you'd be subject to non-vetted illegal aliens, violent criminals, gangs, drug dealers, etc with open borders.

Only because if I had it my way, we'd deport all you traitors to the Russia Federation, where you belong.

This shows the lenses people view the world through.

The right sees there was a fence which is like a wall and their brain stops and they say "see? we need one too."

The left sees there was a fence which is like a wall but also see how easily it was defeated. They see that there are huge costs but very little benefit.

So you're not subject to all that now?

#7 Why does Gracie want a socialist wall when she can get a capitalist wall like Nancy?
Why should job creators pay for a wall to protect poor people when they can afford a wall of their own?

The right need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and build their own walls like liberals are able to.

I have a personal carry wall to stop criminals because I don't want to depend on a socialist government wall.

You love the fact that the futility of a wall/fence was demonstrated by someone jumping over Pelosi's fence?

Lots of people love that... Donald Trump excepted, of course.

Yeah, it's almost as if Nancy's house is invaded every day by hundreds of people. You use the same bad logic so many other people do. How many people want to invade Nancy's yard? How many people have we heard of doing it? I bet the ratio is EXTREMELY low...probably under 1%. So, in that sense, the fence is incredibly effective to the point of condom-like effectiveness. Yep, the rare swimmer gets through sometimes but that doesn't make it an easy defeat with very little benefit.

Obviously the fence is easy to get over. Fences, walls, locks, etc. are all about keeping the masses out...not the minority of people who are crooked no matter what is in front of them. That's just common sense, or should be to anyone who is an adult. It's the purpose you are not understanding. The purpose of the wall isn't to stop illegal immigration 100%. It's to stop illegal immigration in a "defense-in-depth" strategy that has been used for thousands of years. For example, you don't see a king put his bed in a yard with a big wall around it. No, you see the big wall, then a big drawbridge, then a big gate, then guards, then etc.

Looks like someone's brain stopped before making their post and it's not just the Right...

Nope.

It's to keep people from wandering in. Fences don't keep people out who really want in...as you can see. Not sure why Trumpers can't understand this...

And it didn't cost $5 billion.

Dumtake is right. If people can get over Nancy's wall with a low frequency of attempts, imagine how useless a wall will be when hundreds of people try every single day to get over it.

Trump's wall will inundate us with illegals.

People jumping Pelosi's fence are not incredibly invested in the outcome. This woman did it because she was invested in the political stunt for attention. But for most, it's just getting arrested and no benefit so why jump the fence? The fence just makes it a bit more difficult so the average person thinking of trespassing won't do it.

People coming from South America are traveling a thousand dangerous miles to escape poverty stricken, dangerous origins for a better life. They are invested. So jumping the fence is worth it. The fence on the border won't stop them. The fence we have now doesn't stop them.

Thank you for proving the idea of a border wall being useless.
