Where was the hysterical left when Obama admin used pepper spray on rock-throwing migrants in 2013?

The reaction Sunday by the pearl-clutching left and their media allies to the chaotic scene on the southern border could serve as Exhibit A in a case study on hypocrisy, and goes to show that it’s all about politics.

Unless the Obama administration is held to a different standard when setting the precedent for actions taken by the Trump administration.

Hundreds of illegal immigrants from the migrant caravan made a mad rush on the U.S. border, with some becoming violent, attacking Border Patrol agents with rocks. Agents held their ground, fighting back with flash bang grenades and tear gas.

All of which sent Democrats into a frenzy.

And while the rock throwing drew little attention, the media was quick to report on children — who were forced on this perilous journey and placed directly into harms way by their parents — being caught up in the fracas.

The photograph seen above was featured by most major news outlets in the U.S., to include The New York Times.

Never mind that several border patrol agents were hit by projectiles thrown by the mob that turned violent, according to a tweet from the agency.

And while this humanitarian crisis that has been in the making for months — aided and abetted by the left — will surely dominate the news cycle over the coming days, the stunning irony here is that five years ago, to the very day and at the exact same spot, there was a similar incident.

…which created nary a ripple on the left, to include the media.

As Brietbart’s Brandon Darby reminded his followers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported “about 100 people trying to illegally cross the border Sunday near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at U.S. Border Patrol agents.”

And the agents “responded by using pepper spray and other means to force the crowd back into Mexico.”

The difference between the two incidents? Barack Hussein Obama sat in the White House in 2013.

But make no mistake, President Trump is staying true to his word about not allowing the invading migrant caravan to enter the country.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection closed the San Ysidro border crossing south of San Diego, bringing to a screeching halt the flow of humanity.

Trump took to Twitter early Monday to reinforce that stance and threaten to close the border “permanently,” if necessary.

“Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!” the president tweeted.
