California Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s notorious stupidity crested even higher than usual Sunday on NBC when he proclaimed that building a border wall to stop illegal immigration is somehow un-Christian.
“You don’t treat human beings like that,” the false prophet proudly declared on “Meet the Press.” “That is not what — I mean, [President Donald] Trump’s supposed to be Mr. Religious Fellow, and I thought we’ve got to treat ‘the least of these’ as we would treat the Lord.”
Apparently, anyone who dares to lock his or her doors at night to keep out intruders is also lacking in Christian values, according to Moonbeam.
He is not the first and will likely not be the last to trot out this phony argument. Pope Francis said something similar last year, stating, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”
Both Moonbeam and the Pope are wrong.
As noted by The Daily Wire, the Old Testament is brimming with references to the usefulness of walls: “God doesn’t seem particularly perturbed by the idea of walls in the Bible. They’re necessary for defense, and they’re often necessary to draw boundaries between people who live by the Living Word, and people who do not.”
Plus, when the Pope made his silly statement last year, then-GOP primary candidate Sen. Marco Rubio noted that his own residence at the Vatican City also features a wall.
“Vatican City controls who comes in when they come in and how they come in as a city state,” he said. “And as a result the United States has a right to do that as well.”

As for Brown, he is one of many sanctimonious California liberal elitists — including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg — who live in protected, upscale neighborhoods, faraway from the troubled Middle Class communities that are in tatters because of illegal immigration.
National Review contributor Victor David Hansen put it best in a column published earlier this year:
When Jerry Brown leaves his governorship, he will not live in Bakersfield but probably in hip Grass Valley. High crime, the flight of small businesses, and water shortages cannot bound the fences of Nancy Pelosi’s Palladian villa or the security barriers and walls of Mark Zuckerberg and other Silicon Valley billionaires — who press for more regulation, and for more compassion for the oppressed, but always from a distance and always from the medieval assumption that their money and privilege exempt them from the consequences of their idealism.
There is no such thing as an open border for a neighbor of Mr. Zuckerberg or of Ms. Pelosi.
Yep. There’s only hypocrisy and false prophecies.
