When Donald Trump advocated for building a wall on the southern border of the united States, he wasn’t pushing his own agenda. No, a border wall has been advocated by both political parties in the past, it just depended on who was in the Oval Office and who was in power at the time. Well, now, just in time for Christmas, there is a new Lego-style toy to help promote the building of what has now become labeled as “Trump’s Wall.” It’s called, “Build the Wall.”
The Build the Wall building blocks toy comes with 101 pieces that promotes building a wall along the southern border of the united States.
This toy has been featured on Fox and Friends, where co-host Steve Doocy called Keep and Bear “the toy company that’s making the holidays great again.”
According to the description is an unhidden agenda:
A mob of 10,000 Central American migrants is marching through Mexico and heading toward El Paso, Texas. Mexican border agents attempted to stop them at the Mexican border, but to no avail.
We understand why they want to flee Honduras and live and work in America. After all, we are the greatest nation on earth.
In the interest of national security, however, we cannot allow just anyone and everyone to cross our borders. While there are good people attempting to enter our nation, there are also gangs, criminals, and terrorists. Everyone who wants to enter our country must enter legally for the safety of all.
The wall must be built. The wall will keep America safe and strong. Only then will we be able to help those in need.
Exactly right! Those pushing anything else are going against established US immigration law.
“This gift was meant to bring some lighthearted comic relief to the intense political debate,” said author Brandon Vallorani, EO of Romulus Marketing, the parent organization of Keepandbear.com and my boss, in a statement.
“The majority of our customers are over the age of 40, not children,” reads Vallorani’s statement.
The toy has sold out recently, but the company is expecting to have a new shipment in on December 9, and those interested should go ahead and preorder their’s so that they will get them in plenty of time for Christmas.
Of course, leave it to someone like Jasmyne Cannick to put the idea of racism into this concept.
New #MAGA building blocks (which look a lot like Legos) urge kids to ‘Build the Wall’. And as racist as this is to some–please know there are plenty of parents in America who will see this and buy it for their kid. 🤨https://t.co/xwtxXOd4qP

My response was simple.
It's only racist to those who ARE ethnically prejudiced. Is that YOU, Ms Cannick? I didn't see anything in the product that even speaks of ethnicity. YOU IMPLIED THAT! #racist

OK, so there is a guy on the other side of the mega block wall in a sombrero. Is that really “racist”? No, it’s a reality of who comes across our southern border, but illegal immigration occurs from all around the world.
The fact is that even though left-leaning Politifact wants to say a statement by White House budget director Mick Mulvaney that Democrats voted for a border wall in 2006 is “half true,” the only reason they do so is based on the fact that it was a “fence” and not a “wall.”
But the outlet admits, “Experts have repeatedly told PolitiFact that the differences in semantics between a wall and a fence are not too significant because both block people.”
Tomato… tomatoe… potato… potatoe.
They continue to pontificate on costs and differences of what fencing and walls actually do and how much they cost, but the reality is that both are designed to keep people from crossing. This shows their obvious bias to protect such hypocrites as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, who were all senators at the time who voted for the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
The fact is that this is a toy, and yes, there is a political message there, but some people just have a hard time with reality, don’t they?
If you really want to tick off a liberal, then pick up a couple of these as gifts for the kids. They probably won’t even get the implications, but the adults in the room when they unwrap them surely will.
