We don’t do wild conspiracy theories here because we figure no matter how ‘creative’ we get we’ll always be outdone by Democrats like Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, two California “Russian collusion” truthers who traffic in such tinfoil hat nonsense.
But radio talk legend Rush Limbaugh, as he so often does, has twice this week brought up a salient point regarding the masses of humanity streaming towards the U.S. border from Central America — the “migrant caravans” that have become a regular occurrence since the latter part of 2018.
During his program Tuesday he noted (per Rush’s website):
We don’t currently have mechanisms to absorb this, and people are now beginning to ask a very legitimate question: Why now? Why are masses of people, in the thousands in these caravans…? Why now are these migrations happening? Why didn’t they happen three years ago and four years ago and five? Why now? Everybody wants everybody to believe that this just organic, that the circumstances in all of these nations in Central America’s deteriorated to the point that nobody can live there anymore.
There may have been others asking this question but it hasn’t become part of the national conservative conversation until Rush asked it.
Some have suggested there are Leftist globalist groups — perhaps funded by some of the usual America-hating suspects like George Soros — behind the massive migrations out of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
Others have noted that the Mexican cartels are getting in on the act because there is a lot of money to be made moving that many migrants north, which the cartels have begun to automate, essentially, using buses and other modes of mass transit (see our TNS Videos report on that here).
