The Democratic National Convention has been a total disaster with delegates walking out, massive protests outside, and discord all around. But Hillary Clinton is trying to put a happy face on the hot mess by claiming Democrats “build bridges, not walls.”
And yet, reality at this year’s convention tells a far different story.
Not long ago Team Clinton sent out a tweet insisting that Democrats don’t “tear each other down” and then added, “we build bridges, not walls.”
“In America, we don’t tear each other down, we lift each other up.
We build bridges, not walls.” —Hillary

But a review of all the walls built by the Democrat National Committee to keep people away from its convention in Philadelphia would seem to make mockery of Hillary’s claim that Democrats “don’t build walls.”
In fact, the Democrats built quite a few walls around their convention to keep the rabble away.
There were walls outside to keep protesters like Black Lives Matter and Bernie Sanders fans away:

And it wasn’t just one fence the party erected outside the convention. It was a four-mile-long double fence perimeter.

But that wasn’t the only barrier the Democrats erected in Philly. They also made sure their own delegates couldn’t get near the stage by erecting a fence around the podium.

That is a lot of wall building, isn’t it?
As Kyle Olson so trenchantly notes, “To the Democratic National Committee elites, keeping average Americans away from their convention is a good idea, while protecting the southern border from intruding terrorists, rapists and murderers is a bad one.”
