SICK: NYT Op-Ed Calls for Publicly Shaming U.S. Border Agents into Quitting their Jobs
A New York Times op-ed published over the weekend essentially called for the doxxing of U.S. Border Patrol agents in the hopes that they quit their jobs.
Kate Cronin-Furman, an assistant professor of human rights at University College London, wrote in the Times, “The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable. Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos. These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities.”
The professor argues she was not in favor of “doxxing,” and just wants to expose the “midlevel functionaries who make the system run.”
“The knowledge, for instance, that when you go to church on Sunday, your entire congregation will have seen you on TV ripping a child out of her father’s arms is a serious social cost to bear. The desire to avoid this kind of social shame may be enough to persuade some agents to quit and may hinder the recruitment of replacements,” she writes.
“For someone who is ‘just following orders,’ the prospect of being internationally shamed as a rights abuser and being unable to travel freely may be significant enough to persuade them to stop participating.”
Dan joined Fox and Friends this morning and slammed the nature of the op-ed.
“These are people who are only interested in defending the United States of America. But, there’s a reason why this deranged op-ed was printed. And the reasons are very clear…the first part of the reason is there’s no emergency brake on the far left’s behavior,” he said.
“See, we as conservatives believe that every human being is blessed with God-given rights. Every human being, even our political opponents. We don’t attack them, we don’t dox them. We don’t do that we just disagree with them and fight vigorously against them.”
“But secondly, we as conservatives think liberals are people with bad ideas…But liberals think conservatives are bad people with ideas so they justify their horrible, malicious, sometimes criminal behavior as somehow justified in some higher cause because we’re bad people. You can’t have a country like that. We’re on the road to a very dangerous path here!”
