Photographer Exposes Biden’s Claims That Border Agents ‘Whipped’ Migrants as Fake News

Recently, President Biden harshly condemned Border Patrol officers that appeared to be “whipping” illegal migrants while on horseback. Shocking images capture of the event sparked a quick and harsh backlash from Democrats, even Vice President Harris likened the treatment to slavery.

However, it seems there’s much more to the photographs than the Biden administration wants to own up to. Paul Ratje, the photographer who captured the images says that the agents were not whipping migrants and he’s never seen them engage in that behavior.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses,” Ratje told NBC affiliate KTSM.

“I’ve never seen them whip anyone,” he said . “He was swinging it, but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”

Numerous Democrats expressed fury at the border agents’ actions, including Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

“That is not what our policies and our training require. … We will not tolerate mistreatment,” Mayorkas said .

Will the Biden administration clarify its statement attacking border agents for doing their jobs or will they continue to take the side of illegal immigrants?

There a many who never rode a horse, You have to have the reins in your hand{s} or the horse will run wild, some will have a crop to use if the horse needs prodding but most just use the ends of the rein. Dems are too quick to make statements about something they know nothing about instead of upholding the laws of this country.

Growing up on a farm and riding horses I surmise the reins on the Border Patrol horses are longer than what is commonly used by farmers and ranchers…The horses are most likely trained that when the rider dismounts and lets the reins fall to the ground the horse knows he must stop, stand still and not run away…Long reins can also be used to tether a mount to a tree, a bush, or a rock or the cowboy does a simple tie to a nearby object…We see it done in the cowboy movies where the rider drops the reins and the horse stops…The cowboy is then free to do his task not having to worry about the horse running away…Yes this story of whipping and abuse is “fake” news…however the Democrats and Joe Biden played the story out as a “whipping”…they gobbled up the story of abuse put out by the liberal MSM…The “Commies” never tire of reporting made up negative stories with which to fit their agenda of causing as much damage and chaos as possible in support of their anti-American agenda…Democrats love “fake” news.

They will use any excuse to create deflection. Dems are an now insidious gang of cretins instead of the once-noble “party of the people.”

And if a tree with a long, extended branch had been near by, We probably would have been told the BP was going to lynch or hang these refugees.

Excellent response. I’d add that these mounts are exquisitely trained quarter horses that naturally use their size, strength and speed to block and maneuver cattle. Humans are no match, no challenge at all. If I had my druthers, I’d have Mexican cowboys who also are expert cattlemen, herd the Haitian outlaws back to Brazil.

The ONLY part of the story that’s true….is as usual the Biden administration tells LIES about what happened.

As usual Biden and Company make statements before knowing the truth or facts. What can be done about a Administration and Party that proves more everyday they do not care or abide by the laws of the country they are supposed to represent and protect, instead of constantly siding with Illegals or criminals, breaking our laws. But more and more all this seems like a laid out plan to bring in more voters, Destroy what’s left of the US ( Trump had almost repaired the Damage done by Obama during his 8 years, just to have him reelected for a third term ( with Biden as his puppet ) and revert back to the disaster that we had just begun recovering from. Enough is Enough. It maybe time for the people to take action to remove these invaders and those supporting their entry, from our country.

Take note that they use soft terms for those they view as potential Democrat voters–the illegal aliens are not criminals they are “migrants.” BLM arsonists are “peaceful demonstrators,” but Proud Boys are “terrorists.” Robert E. Lee was a “racist White Supremacist” but George Floyd was a family-loving “victim” and all around “hero.” Makes me sick. One is tempted to think Floyd is the best they have today if he deserves to be memorialized next to JFK and MLK?

The only question I would pose was if the photographer will return what I’m sure was a hefty payday for the pics/video that he hastily marketed, knowing that the images would not shine a good light on the hard-working individuals who are only trying to maintain control of an China Joe Biden initiated, ever-increasing catastrophe at our nation’s southern border. This is all on the heads and hands of the current administration, Joe Biden, Ka-Mala Harris, their handlers and puppet masters!

The people who shout the loudest know nothing about horses, have never ridden a horse, or been around horses. They are horses asses themselves. Uninformed and do not care what comes out of their mouths as long as it’s noise.

It won’t matter if they were whipped or not in the age of outrage, the visual of a white man on a horse, chasing a black man, is just an overload on the simple mind of your average democrat..driven on emotion, not thought.

They can believe anything without bothering to verify its authenticity, as long as that is what they want to believe. That is the depth of their depravity. That is what Democrats are all about.

Sounds to me like the IIC (Imbecile-In-Chief) owes his Border Patrol employees a big apology. I hope all the mounted agents resign and accept Governor Abbott’s offer to work for the state. The government party (democrats) never will treat them fairly because of a built-in hatred for Texas and all it stands for. Hopefully, Texas will resign from the pitiful nation now being destroyed by the government party. And hopefully, many states will join to mass exodus from a dying monarchy.

Now, let’s discuss the tolerant left or right! Preach pastor preach. A lot of demagods out there, preaching what is wrong with “them”! If the people doing wrong were told to stop and did, no riding a horse to turn them would occur. The “race” that usually have problems is the HUMAN race! Black-white-horse, all the same. Beating a “dead horse” is the mantra of today’s america!

What surprises me is they pick, pick, pick, and it is all smoke & mirrors … but nothing is done to the computers that collected the votes “online” … recall the hacking of the oil pipeline & Beef industry … and the Nusem recall vote … bet that was collected “online” as well… the Dems got it “fixed” … until the “online” crap is corrected, the Dems win …

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF GOOFY OLD DEMENTED JOE OR KAMALA HAVE EVER RIDEN A HORSE.
WHAT OLD DEMENTED JOE HAS DONE IS TO BREAK AND IGNORE EVERY LAW IN THE BOOKS.
