No one is disputing the agents did, in fact, have whips to round up Haitian migrants. Not even you.
Wha???? Please show exactly
where I or anyone with factual knowledge about this story said that the agents had "whips". They didn't have whips, they were using horse reigns
, which are an essential piece of equipment used when riding a horse.
Horse reigns and whips are two entirely
different things. The media outlets that flamed this story purposely only showed pictures from angles that misrepresented what happened, where the reigns looked like "whips". And people like you who know absolutely zero about riding horses listened to idiots like Joy Reid and didn't even bother to question the logic of why on earth border patrol agents would be allowed to use "whips".
It really is sad that so many people accept everything that the media says without exercising any critical thinking skills whatsoever.
Whips have long been associated with keeping black skinned people under control.
The only reasons that you believe that is because your only point of reference for slavery is Hollywood. Believe it or not, it's a fact that slavery has existed among all races throughout history.
Really, the people who need a good old fashioned whipping, are the news outlets who lied about this story and then NEVER retracted their lies. It would be completely justified punishment to line them all up and whip them, to show them exactly what the difference between a whip and horse reign really is.
