Media hysterics over use of tear gas at the border

Media hysterics over use of tear gas at the border ignored Obama admin frequent use

By Thomas Lifson

The old joke that if it weren’t for double standards, the MSM would have no standards at all certainly applies to the cascade of hysterical media coverage of the use of tear gas to repel rock-throwing invaders at the San Ysidro border crossing. When the Obama administration used tear gas at the border to repel invaders, there was no tidalmwave of outrage. Stephen Dinan of the Washington Times reminds us:

The same tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob this weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration, according to Homeland Security data.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has used 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, or CS, since 2010, and deployed it 26 times in fiscal 2012 and 27 times in 2013. The use dropped after that, but was still deployed three times in 2016, Mr. Obama’s final full year in office. (snip)

Border authorities also use another agent, pepper spray, frequently — including a decade-high record of 151 instances in 2013, also under Mr. Obama. Pepper spray, officially known as Pava Capsaicin, was used 43 times in fiscal year 2018, according to the CBP numbers.

Obozo's use of tear gas was justified because he was a democrat. Then there are the morons that call this a 'chemical weapon. It's amazing to see how many ignorant and outright stupid CONgresscritters we elect to run this country.  :rolleyes:

And liberals keep wondering why they're losing.

It's shit like this that embarrasses their blind followers when they come to forums like ours and learn the truth after regurgitating the leftist media lies. only to get slapped down with the actual truth.

The plants inside the caravan were hoping the rock throwing would invoke a stronger response like firing live rounds and kill and wound a number of people so they could blame deaths on Trump.  This is what would have happened in their third world country.

I can't wait until the Military or the BP uses sound disruption to drive them back......

There is one thread on my FB page where some guy is proclaiming the border patrol distributed the teargas without provocation. The left is totally blinded by their hatred for Trump.

I've been saying this since day one, there will be no need for live fire, I even posted a pic of one being brought too the border by train.
I'm guessing the reason they haven't deployed it yet is it's effectiveness, which the media would roll out some study saying it has damaging effects on DNA or some such nonsense, Hell, they're claiming pepper spray is a chemical weapon.
Personally, I'd wished they'd have fired this thing up the first time they encroached the border..

We're getting immune to 'media hysterics' by now are we not?

Only the media make anything of 'media hysterics'. Not only that but hysteria is the golden rule for the progressive, infantile members of the left. They WANT, they don't get, so they resort to hysteria... every time. It's funny as hell, really.

I suggest using tear gas on the media.

I'm already sick of this garbage. Everyone is crying about the kids. How about instead of blaming the US for protecting the homeland, why not blame these fools who will bring their kids into these types of areas knowing full well there will be goons who cause issue and bring about these problems. Case in point, if you have a kid, don't hop the fucking border, and instead, go to a border crossing.
