Radical Democrats have caused an uproar in the last few days over after an El Paso Times article about the crisis on the border which falsely reported that a Border Patrol agent “swung his whip menacingly” at migrants “before charging his horse toward the men in the river,” which led Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to call for immediate hearings.
Elected Democrats are so out of touch with the world that they have mistaken the reins on a horse for a whip AND accused Border Patrol agents of using said “whip” on migrants.
Despite their cosmopolitan bias being exposed, Democrats refuse to back down.
“This is so sick,” Tlaib tweeted Monday, “and CBP will continue to commit human rights abuses if we don’t stop it now. Cracking a f****** whip on Haitians fleeing hardship shows you that this system simply can’t be reformed.”
She called on the House Oversight and Judiciary committees to “hold hearings immediately and act.”
This is so sick and @CBP will continue to commit human rights abuses if we don’t stop it now.
Cracking a fucking whip on Haitians fleeing hardship shows you that this system simply can’t be reformed. @OversightDems + @HouseJudiciary should hold hearings immediately + act. https://t.co/RLsG3EY6Fw

Perhaps even more mortifying, Vice President and border czar Kamala Harris proved her inability to differentiate a whip from a horse’s rein when she said she supports “a thorough investigation” of the incident.
“What I saw depicted, those individuals on horseback treating human beings the way they were was horrible,” Harris told reporters, “I fully support what is happening right now, which is a thorough investigation into what is going on there. But human beings should never be treated that way, and I’m deeply troubled about it,” she said.
Harris’s conscience is deeply troubled by a report that has been discredited, while she’s remained mum on the 15,000 migrants gathered in a tent city underneath a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, and on the stories of hundreds of migrants simply walking across the border into the United States unimpeded.
For its part in this ridiculousness, the El Paso Times issued a clarification, but Democrats and leftists in the media don’t care. They’ve continued using the false story because it fits their narrative.
“Clarification: Our reporting team witnessed at least one agent on horseback swing his reins like a whip. We have updated the story to clarify that fact since it was not an actual whip,” the outlet wrote.
The original story was also reportedly amplified by PBS News’ Yamiche Alcindor and NBC News’ Shannon Pennypiece.
Twitter users were not kind about the confusion and intentional misleading by leftist politicians and media personalities:
That’s not a whip, it’s the reins on the horse, and is used to control the horse. Ever do much horseback riding? Maybe you should try.

That pic is not what it seems. It’s not a whip it’s the reins used to maneuver the horse. pic.twitter.com/q9WRlo4H7C

1000% fake. Horses are perfect for the difficult terrain in catching running illegals.. there is no whipping.. those are horse reins.. If Biden was there with nat’l guard they’d be using chemicals, rubber bullets, tazers, beating with batons..

I don’t mind people posting things that turn out to be false, but I absolutely loathe the ones that leave them up once they know it’s false.

You wanna show us the whip?

It looks like that but he appears to be driving the horse into people.
It looks like they tried to train their horses to herd people.

They are doing THEIR JOBS!! Their job is to keep people from illegally entering our country! They are people actively breaking our laws! You want to hold hearings to find out why our border patrol “yelled at them” & hurt their feelings?! Just stop.

Tell me you’ve never been horseback riding without telling me you’ve never been horseback riding.

@Twitter please take down this misinformation.

Harris, Tlaib, and others have not commented on developments on the story, and likely won’t now that it is no longer useful to them or their narrative.
While the whip story continues to garner headlines, Harris effectively remains in hiding; likely afraid to be questioned on the growing crisis and lack of leadership on the border following the Biden administration’s move to stop repatriation flights to Haiti earlier this month.
