Honduran Migrant Complains About Free Meals Provided by Mexico – Calls it ‘Pig Food' (VIDEO)
[Gateway Pundit] According to reports, approximately 6,000 mostly military-aged Honduran males are camped out in Tijuana, Mexico, a city that borders San Diego.

The thousands of migrants camping out in Tijuana are hoping to enter the United States legally or illegally.

Via The Daily Caller:

Deutsche Welle’s Spanish language channel, DW Español, traveled to Tijuana in order to interview some of the migrants living in the camps. A reporter asked one of the migrants how the living conditions were in the camp.

The Honduran woman interviewed by the reporter called the free meals given to her ’pig food.’

"The food that they’re handing out here is terrible. Refried beans? As if they were feeding the pigs. If we don’t eat this, we will die of hunger," the ungrateful Honduran migrant said.

Imagine how demanding these Hondurans will be once they cross over into the United States.

They will demand free housing, medical care, food stamps and education for their families.

#1  More of "our betters" inbound...

#2  If they don't like refried beans then don't stop in Texas.

#3  Complaining about free food generally produces negative results.

#4  But these latinos are so dignified. They are taking a big step down to live in whiteyland. Why can't we just appreciate their sacrifice?

#5  I'd imagine hondurans and guatemalans think mexicans are trash. Gee, I wonder why the mexicans don't know their place?

#6  If you have better food at home, then why go out?

#10  Demanding little shits, ain't ya? Maybe you should go back home because obviously it is soooo awful here, right?

#11  WELL, they surely will not like left over refried bean sandwiches with ketsup in the USA...

#12  Provide them with kettles, firewood, water, bags of rice and bags of potatoes if they cross -- Let Them cook it. Sell them the spices.

#13  Refried beans are one of the greatest contributions from Mexico to our culture. They are nutritious and filling. Combine them with rice and shredded cheese, especially if the beans are hot enough to melt the cheese. Mmmmm. Seriously, Hondurans are complaining about that?
Posted by: Abu Uluque || 11/20/2018 13:31 Comments || Top||

#14  I have friends who lived in Chile for awhile and they say that all of Latin America disrespects Mexico. They have a really long border with the USA, lots of mineral wealth, and they are still poor. Should have dangled their elites from lampposts long ago.

VOTER FRAUD? Orange County Numbers Don't Add Up – GOP Candidate for Governor Wins District But EVERY SINGLE HOUSE SEAT Is Swept?
[GP] Orange County, a traditionally conservative enclave in Southern California turned all blue after Democrats found tens of thousands of votes post election day.

Just two years ago in 2016, only 2 Congressional districts in Orange County voted blue‐now just two years later every single district voted blue.

Democrat blue wave? More like Democrat election fraud.

From a reader:

I did a bit of my own research, and what’s interesting is in both Stanislaus County (ca-10) and Orange County Republican John Cox beat Gavin Newsom for Governor. John Cox ran a horrible campaign and was virtually invisible. I find it hard to believe that voters would split the ticket ‐ voting R for an unknown guy Governor and D for a super liberal congressperson. Just seems like a BIG red flag.

#1  It's easy, if both contenders are Democratic, now permitted by the new state primary election law.

#2  This would not surprise Bob Dornan.

#3  Unexpectedly™.
First they import the illegals immigrants, then they kill off all agricultural jobs, and then they need massive Welfare funds to support the poor/jobless "ghetto" they have created. Call it "Little Venezuela" in a decade...

#4  In this case there was a Dem and GOP up for Governor, and I believe a Dem and GOP up for the Congress seat.

The GOP Gov campaigned poorly but did well in Orange county, The GOP Congressperson campaigned well and lost by a landslide in Orange county. If this is true it is very suspicious, Dems are usually a bit more subtle.

Liberal Millennials, Not Surprisingly, Fail At Sex Too
[Townhall] According to the Atlantic, where I go for all my erotic 411, millennials lost the sexual revolution and they didn’t even fight in it. Why Are Young People Having So Little Sex?, it asks in its latest cover story. Sheesh, just look at them.

I guess what they desperately need is some advice from a retired Army guy in his 50s, because this retired Army guy in his 50s has demonstrated that he gets it done while those goofs half his age are swiping left toward eterna-celibacy.

Now, the fact that millennials are failing to reproduce would superficially seem like a good thing, but it is probably a bad thing for society when the younger generation is more interested in Instagram and Fortnite and endless adolescence than in doing the hard work of making babies and, you know, perpetuating the species.

#1  The Shakers.

As early as 1747, women assumed leadership roles within the sect, notably Jane Wardley, Mother Ann Lee, and Mother Lucy Wright. Shakers settled in colonial America, with initial settlements in New Lebanon, New York (called Mount Lebanon after 1861). They practice a celibate and communal lifestyle, pacifism, and their model of equality of the sexes, which they institutionalized in their society in the 1780s.

Their celibacy combined with external and internal societal changes resulted in the thinning of the Shaker community, and consequently many of the other Shaker settlements are now village museums.

Search for utopia part 4,235.

#2  Lack of boinking will lead to population decline.
Posted by: DarthVader || 11/20/2018 13:21 Comments || Top||

#3  No surprise, I guess. These "millenials" can't decide if they want to be male or female. Bunch of losers.
