A media corporation owned by the richest man in the world smearing a 71-year-old bus driver who is a Vietnam vet seems to be the very definition of ‘punching down’. But it goes without saying that lefties are big fans of punching down while claiming to fight for the oppressed.
Here the Washington Post’s Michael E. Miller files an overwrought character piece from a town overrun by illegal aliens, where the schools are struggling to accommodate the impossible numbers of trespassers, and decides to go after a 71-year-old Vietnam vet who makes ends meet by driving a bus.
It was the first day of school, so Don Brink was behind the wheel of his bus, its yellow paint glistening in the drizzling dawn. Wearing jeans and a John Deere cap, he turned the radio to an oldies station and, with hands callused thick by 50 years of farming, steered the vehicle toward the edge of town.
He stopped in front of familiar farmhouses surrounded by fields of soy and corn, where blond children boarded the bus, chatting in English.
“Morning,” the 71-year-old Vietnam veteran said…
Even as he earns a paycheck ferrying undocumented children to and from school, Brink opposes the immigration system that allowed them to come to Worthington.
“Those kids had no business leaving home in the first place,” Brink said. “That’s why we have all these food pantries, because of all these people we are supporting. I have to feed my own kids.”
Obviously he’s a racist.
Anyone who believes in legal immigration must be.
Miller keeps mentioning Mr. Brink’s paycheck and how much he earns. Is he trying to get him fired? If so, it wouldn’t be the first time a media corporation tried that trick.
