The more I hear from Paul Nehlen the more I like the man. He stands as the sole challenger to Paul Ryan in Wisconsin and has campaigned on a similar platform as Donald Trump. Strong borders, better trade deals and ending the corruption in Washington have all been campaign messages of his. Yet, I like his recent move the best. Paul Nehlen on Saturday held a press conference right in front of Paul Ryan’s border wall, the one surrounding his mansion in Janesville, and demanded that Ryan either build a wall to protect the rest of the American people, or tear down the one that protects him and his family.
Ironic how all of the wealthy businessmen, media hosts and elite politicians get to live in gated communities with walls protecting their homes from intruders, but a wall for the border of our country to protect everyone from drugs and criminals is apparently bigoted and racist.
One law for the rulers, another for the subjects. Remember that phrase, since Hillary Clinton’s recent escape from FBI indictment, I have a feeling we will hear it more and more.
“Today, I am calling on Paul Ryan to live under the same conditions, which he’s imposed upon our American communities,” Nehlen said. He went on:
Paul Ryan, if you will not build a border wall for America, then I am asking you to tear down your wall. If you will not build a wall to honor the mothers and fathers of the dead, if you will not build a wall to protect our children, then, sir, you should tear down your wall and show everyone that you will live under the same conditions as they do.
People like Paul Ryan and Mark Zuckerberg love open borders so long as they stop at the property lines to their mansions. They ensconce their families with walls and fences, but then lecture us about how we have to be more charitable. And lectures us about how America ‘is more than our borders.’
As Nehlen was speaking, Ryan’s house was being protected by four large SUVs, a full-size van, several service agents, and a tall fence reinforced by high bushes.
Nehlen explained that “Paul Ryan is the most open borders, pro-Wall Street, anti-worker member of Congress in either party.”
“Can you name one time when Paul Ryan fought as hard for you and your family as he’s fought for corporate America?” Nehlen asked.
Echoing the rhetoric of the victorious Brexit campaign, Nehlen told Wisconsin voters that August 9th will be “Wisconsin’s Independence Day.”
“Paul Ryan has sold out his district to his corporate masters. On August 9th, the voters of Wisconsin have a historic opportunity: vote Ryan out and declare your freedom,” Nehlen said to loud applause.
While citizens in the UK voted to remove themselves from the European Union, Paul Ryan has pushed trade policies that will bind the U.S. to an international governing commission similar to that of the EU.
“With your vote on August 9th, you can save your country from rule by corporate elites,” Nehlen said,, adding:
With your vote on August 9th, you can dethrone the entire ruling class of America… With your vote on August 9th, you have a chance to save your entire country from open borders… With your vote on August 9th, you can save your entire country from globalism. You can save your entire country from ceding sovereignty to the TPP’s global governing commission.
“Never have any people of any district had such an extraordinary opportunity to reset the balance of power in America,” Nehlen explained. “People have fought wars for less than you can achieve with your vote.”
Nehlen also addressed the Americans who have had to bury their children as a result of Paul Ryan’s support for open borders. Nehlen called on Ryan to release the names of the corporate lobbyists he’s working with on immigration:
Today, I’m calling on Paul Ryan to release the names of the corporate lobbyists he’s working with on immigration—the lobbyists who mean more to Ryan than the American fathers and mothers, who have buried their American children as a result of our nation’s open borders.
Nehlen also addressed the recent bloodshed in Dallas, Texas. Nehlen called on Ryan to bring up an emergency vote making the attempted execution of a police officer a federal hate crime:
As our police officers across the nation are under attack, and our citizens suffer the consequences of crime spiraling out of control— I’m calling on Paul Ryan to bring up for an emergency vote making the attempted execution of a police officer a federal hate crime punishable by death in all 50 states. Thus, ensuring that any time a police officer is killed, the murderer will face the maximum penalty under the law, and the full resources of the federal government will be brought to bear to bring that person and his accomplices to justice. I call on Ryan to hold this vote within the next seven days.
In recent months, Paul Ryan has come under fire for pushing a crime agenda that critics say would release violent criminals from prison—which could further endanger the lives of law enforcement officers.
