At first glance, the whips scenario seems like your typical Democrat race hustle operation, with an image bonus for them. Not only can they claim blacks are being whipped, but the perpetrators look like American cowboys, a national icon. Not coincidentally, Soviet and other communist propaganda also used the cowboy image for anti-American messaging.
But it’s more than only a race hustle. As soon as the images came out, the Biden administration forbade BCP horse patrols on the border, thus making surveillance and capture of illegal aliens harder. The consequence? Aliens flood the border with more ease than ever, a Biden administration priority.
They never whipped anyone. They never used the horse reins as whips. Literally nothing happened. It was all made up. And it doesn’t matter. The other side doesn’t care about the truth. It’s totally irrelevant to them. https://t.co/RI4uyXWijk

FNC: “Widespread images depicting tense scenes between U.S. Border Patrol agents and Haitian immigrants have amplified the growing list of problems facing the Biden administration at the southern border. Accusations swirled in the media this week of agents using whips to deter migrants from entering the country after pictures and videos of horseback patrols emerged.”
Pictures of agents mounted on horseback attempting to corral incoming migrants quickly became a target for government officials. Hordes of Haitians were seen crossing the Rio Grande with agents driving them backward and, in at least one case grabbing an immigrant’s shirt collar. Others showed agents twirling their reins to coax the horse in certain directions, which many mistook as agents intentionally whipping the Haitian immigrants.
‘It’s a bunch of B.S.,’ Rowdy Ballard told the press on Friday. Ballard was Del Rio, Texas’ horse coordinator for six years and spent 17 years on horseback for Border Patrol before entering retirement.” By the way, what a great name for a guy on horseback.
“We all have the same message: we don’t carry whips,” Ballard said. “It was just a form of a pressure release. It was a tense situation. The horses were a little reluctant to do the job that the agents were asking… twirling the reins was just another tool they used to get the horses to do what they’re asking.”
“The horse is a great tool we’ve used for almost 100 years now,” Ballard said. “And with that going, it’s going to be harder to patrol that area. It’s frustrating for the guys in the field as well. I mean, they were asked to do a job, and they did it to the best of their abilities. And now… they’re suffering the whiplash from this.”
Equine enthusiast Kathy Shrader knows the “whips” scenario is utter nonsense. She heard it defended on “The Five” by a Democrat operative. “Listening to Jessica Tarlov trying to defend the ‘whips’ scenario was amazing. Said she didn’t know the horseback patrol ‘had brought reins with them’ “My God Tarlov, is it possible to be that stupid?
Shrader continued, “As a near lifelong horse person, I was taken aback at her (other Democrats too) willingness to boldly display her total ignorance on tack & when/how it is used. This is how they approach everything, all hat, no cowboy, yet they preach as the all-knowing.”
