Actually it is. It’s exaclty the reason. The only difference is that in your eyes, the following criteria apply:
Clinton/Obama say it = okay
Trump says it = racist
You guys are so full of your own crap it’s unbelievable.
No this is about the budget, not dishonorable lying racists seeking to waste more money on something that wasn't originally agreed to.
Now we have honest, descent workers not getting paid because of dishonorable lying racists.
You didn't see Clinton shut down the government over this did you? You didn't see George W. Bush shut down the government over this did you?
You didn't see Obama shut down the government over this did you?
So why is the government shut down again? Oh that's right, a bunch of lying,racists decided to put innocent people at risk over lies and racism.
The government is closed because of a symbol of power that will be devastating either way this goes. Either we have a consensus that border law should be enforced, or we have a consensus on open borders, just anyone who walks here is fine, go ahead and bid down American wages. This will be great for landlords and the rich. Their employees in the media are busy tricking the lower class into voting Democratic. The decision on the wall is a proxy for whether you want a middle class or you are cool with tanking it forever. Perhaps Middle class is a "nationalist myth" that never happened. History is always being rewritten. I tend to think MLK expected African Americans to join the middle class, not to say he would support "the wall," but he may not support extreme lassiez faire globalization. That is
an Ayn Rand dream. The idea that he word "racism" has tricked a lot of people into supporting this sort of extreme fantasy is funny. I'm impressed. Would MLK be impressed? Can't pretend to say.
This is not an either or situation. The border wall is not the end all be all of border security. Only racist lies would have you believing that.
The middle class is going away because they vote for bank bailouts and tax cuts for the rich. There is no income wage gain going on for the "middle class:" unless you are good at your job and irreplaceable.
MLK wanted equality for all, and that is not what Trump and the GOP represent. Trump and the GOP believe in broad strokes of marketing, and then the substance of what they give is empty.
The "Border Wall" has been trumpeted as a cure all, and it is not. If you put an obstacle between someone that wants something and someone that is offering something, the Obstacle will only slow them down. The people in the US that are offering jobs need to be found out and punished. The Tax-id's that are given and used need to be checked by employers and renters. The banks and employers that let it happen should be found out. But to justify that MLK would have supported the shutdown over such a disagreement between border security and a border wall is ludicrous.
The fact that Jump took glee in shutting down the government over this is atrocious. Your very opening statement is based on Trump's lie about Democrats and "open borders".
