Wayfair is a company that builds furniture for corporate and government clients. The company has a contract to provide beds for a migrant detention center, which has evidently incensed some of its employees, causing them to stage a walkout.
The employees are apparently mad that their company is providing beds for migrant children who have been forced to sleep on the cold, hard floor. The National Review captured the surreal circumstances:
“A group of employees from the furniture company Wayfair are so disheartened by their company’s business relationship with detention facilities for would-be migrants that they are “walking out” today in protest.
Incensed at the thought of children sleeping on dirty floors, the employees are demanding that Wayfair cease doing business with these detention centers and stop providing beds . . . for the kids sleeping on dirty floors.
“While the kids might not sleep any better at night, Wayfair employees will — which is the point. The burgeoning genre of effete corporate liberals play-acting as Freedom Riders are not so much about making a difference as much as it is about ‘making a difference.’ Catharsis and the expiration of guilt are themselves the reward.”
Clearly, these protestors have not thought things through. In any case, Wayfair is not prepared to cave in to the protestors’ demands. The company will fulfill its contract and help migrant children sleep in real beds.
As with many developments that have sensible people scratching their heads, the irrepressible Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York tweeted her support:
“Wayfair workers couldn’t stomach they were making beds to cage children. They asked the company to stop. CEO said no. Tomorrow, they‘re walking out. This is what solidarity looks like – a reminder that everyday people have real power, as long as we’re brave enough to use it.”
Just a little while ago, AOC got herself in serious trouble for claiming that the United States was running actual concentration camps on the border. As people and organizations ranging from the Holocaust Museum to actual survivors of the Nazi genocide condemned her, she tried to backtrack by claiming that she surely didn’t mean death camps, though she had ended her original tweet with “never again.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her enablers have been beating the drums against immigration enforcement with lurid stories of young kids bereft of soap and toothpaste being forced to sleep on the cold, concrete floor with blankets of aluminum foil wearing clothing covered with snot and worse things.
Yet, AOC is also opposing alleviating the plight of these unfortunate tykes by giving them beds to sleep in.
George Orwell had a term for what Ocasio-Cortez is exhibiting. The term was called “doublethink,” the ability to believe two diametrically opposite and mutually exclusive things at the same time. However, in Orwell’s classic novel, 1984, an all-powerful police state with every tool of propaganda and mind-altering torture-induced the people of Oceana to believe two things at once.
AOC seems to have managed it all on her own, with every access to the truth and a human brain that is supposed to be capable of discernment and reason but is obviously not.
Clearly, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and far too many other Americans are beset by a mental health disorder. Mattress makers protesting the providing of beds to children because they are mad that the same children have no beds to sleep on presents a spectacle that is so insane that the reasoning human mind has difficulty processing it.
Fortunately, the spectacle provides an opportunity for people of good will and sound mind to note that the behavior of these people is not motivated by any concern for the children.
The migrant children are simply props in the ongoing war to impose open borders on the United States and to admit hordes of illegal immigrants. That such a policy would run the risk of wrecking American civilization, just as the migration of German tribes in the fifth century brought about the fall of Rome, is beside the point.
In fact, one would be forgiven for concluding that is the plan.
However, the vast majority of Americans oppose such a policy for being cruel and monstrously insane.
Donald Trump was elected to stop the implementation of such a change in the nature of the country. His efforts merit full support.
