Trump Official Pointed to Berlin Wall to Say "Walls Work"

Post by ProfessorX »

... well, they work, for tyranny, anyway.

They're currently celebrating the 30th anniversary of the demolition of the Berlin Wall in Germany.

At the Berlin Wall last week. Walls work’: Treasury Department official Monica Crowley in 2015

She tweeted that back when she was just on Faux News, when candidate Trump was discussing building his glorious wall ... before joining the admin.

BTW, not only can you cut through the glorious Trump wall with a $100 power saw, Samantha Bee exposed Trump lie #38637 on her show. Trump claimed they tested the prototypes for this wall and "20 of the greatest mountain climbers couldn't climb it". Well, she had on her show a group of about a dozen mountain climbers who showed they could climb a section of the Trump wall, and one of them was an eight year old girl. :roll:

What an f'n boondoggle.

And he's gonna try and shut down the government again over funding for this idiocy.

The Berlin Wall was 203 miles long and now there is only a little portion of it remaining. When the Berlin Wall "fell" the wall started disappearing quickly and the government realized they had to preserve a portion of the wall as part of their history and that portion is in a park. What Crowley doesn't understand is walls are temporary deterrence. The Great Wall of China kept small invasions out but not large-scale invasions. Hadrian's Wall in England built by the Romans to keep the Northern Barbarians out of Roman occupied England. Trump's "impregnable" that can be hacked with a reciprocating saw. Monica Crowley might be an intelligent woman but even an intelligent person can still be ignorant.

Leave it to a Russian Asset to praise a wall that became a symbol of Communist Tyranny.
