(Tea Party 247) – You just can’t reason with leftists. They completely lack the ability to utilize common sense and rational thinking. A day in the life of a liberal can’t possibly be complete without having some kind of over-the-top, unnecessary meltdown over something. This week it was over the presence of ICE in a Queens neighborhood and their use of what snowflake’s describe as a “tank.”
Paul Joseph Watson reports:
The sight of an armored vehicle in Queens last week belonging to a branch of ICE had leftists all in a spin, as some suggested, wrongly, it was there as an ‘occupying force’ to arrest illegals.
The armored personnel carrier, (not a tank) surrounded by ICE agents, and even a gunner, was seen on Forest Avenue near Norman Street in the Queens neighborhood of Ridgewood.
The Ridgewood Tenants Union, a leftist organization, freaked out without checking the facts first:
ICE is literally rolling through Queens in armored personnel carriers like an occupying force. https://t.co/2mFB5LBSx9

One particularly idiotic leftist, Raquel Namuche, said, “People feel terrorized.” Namuche, an organizer with the Ridgewood Tenants Union went on, “This happened right across from a youth program for children as young as four-years-old and there seemed to be no safety protocols in place. For people to leave their homes early in the morning and see a tank out on the streets is just wild.”
First of all, as Watson points out, the vehicle was NOT a tank, it’s a BearCat tactical vehicle “acquired last year by the Homeland Security Investigations unit.” The purpose of the vehicle is to protect the agents from dangerous criminals such as the one they were in the neighborhood to investigate.
Gothamist reported that the vehicle was being used by ICE in an effort to arrest a man who was suspected of being involved in the smuggling and selling of illegal weapons.
An ICE spokesperson confirmed that one individual was taken into custody on an unspecified criminal arrest warrant. A spokesperson for Mayor Bill de Blasio said the agents were there as part of a federal investigation into a firearms suspect, who was allegedly found to have been hoarding “about 50 guns, including a machine gun, gun parts and ammunition.”
The irony of Namuche’s statement is that the ICE agents were there literally to try to make their neighborhood and the city safer. Their entire mission was a “safety protocol” but idiots like her and other leftists just can’t go a day without freaking out.
Namuche wasn’t alone in her panic attack:
Councilmember Antonio Reynoso also expressed frustration about the incident, pointing to constant fear in immigrant neighborhoods about the potential for raids and deportations. “I do not understand what necessitated ICE’s use of a tank other than the simple desire to instill fear amongst our community members,” he said in a statement to Gothamist. “At this time, we must ensure that residents are connected to resources like the Immigrant Defense Project so that they are equipped to know their rights against ICE.”
Perhaps if illegal immigrants went back from whence they came they wouldn’t have to live in “constant fear” of ICE and the pesky laws that govern the United States.
This story really perfectly illustrates the absolute ridiculousness of the left. ICE is in the neighborhood to get a dangerous criminal and illegal weapons off their streets and the only thing they care about is their precious feelings. How about thanking ICE for making the city safer one bad guy at a time? That would require too much humility; a characteristic painfully absent in most leftist loons.
