Democrats, including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, seem dead-set on painting the horse-mounted Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who pushed back illegal Haitian migrants at the Texas border in Del Rio as racists as they continue to push the debunked, false “whipping” narrative.
According to the Daily Caller, an Associated Press reporter released video footage of the incident, which clarifies in even greater detail that the horse-mounted agents were simply using their reins to prevent the Haitians from being injured by the horses while safely pushing them back.
The video clearly shows that the agents were not wielding “whips,” as many Democrats would love for the American public to believe, for whatever sickening reason.
Video doesn’t lie
It was AP reporter Sarah Blake Morgan who shared the video footage on her Twitter account Friday, allowing Americans more context rather than the single, damning photo that was originally released that was interpreted in a wildly different fashion.

Commenters on the video asked for it to be shared with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki so that she could pass it on to President Biden to make sure he knows that there clearly wasn’t any foul play, which he essentially insisted in a press conference earlier in the week.
Biden on Friday told reporters he believed the incident was “beyond an embarrassment,” but as the video revealed, the only embarrassment is the fact that the president, and vice president, got too far ahead of the story without having the facts, something they’re typically keen on doing in incidents revolving around potential racism.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas originally told the press the correct story — that the agents had “long reins” for the horses and that whips weren’t used, but seemed to walk back those statements the next day to ensure he complied with Biden’s racism and slavery narrative.
According to Fox News, a number of current CBP agents have expressed their outrage — and concern — over the White House’s oddly aggressive assumptions on the incident, with some of them telling Fox that they feel they’re being thrown under the bus with no proof.
“I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol,” one agent reportedly told Fox.
“Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay’?” another unnamed agent told Fox News. “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say.”
It’s truly bizarre to see the administration sticking with their debunked, false narrative even after video footage and testimony clearly prove they’re wrong. One must wonder what their true intentions are with this story.
