Wall of Moms MAGA?

Non-profit expands efforts to include stopping flow of drugs to kids

Wallflowers: a Wall of Moms contingent links arms with President Trump beside a section of the as-yet-unfinished border wall. “What Trump is doing in Portland is indefensible,” says Wokenshield. “But we here at Wall of Moms aren’t out to play politics. We’re out to protect the children. So of course we’ll stand with him against the rising tide of drugs washing over our southern border. And we won’t desecrate any Kumeyaay land while we’re doing it.”

And we won’t desecrate any Kumeyaay land while we’re doing it.”

Last week, the Wall of Moms — the yellow-shirted edifice that stood in protest against federal agents’ accosting Portland protesters — threatened to crumble after it was revealed that founder Bev Barnum had filed to make Wall of Moms a non-profit organization independent of Black Lives Matter. “BLM is now one part of WOM,” she wrote in a text. “There are so many needs to be met.” Critics accused her of exploiting the Black Lives Matter movement the way Elvis exploited black musicians, but supporters were quick to note that “‘Mom’ is a term that transcends race,” according to WOM spokesmom Karen Wokenshield. “And the concerns of moms transcend any one moment. It’s true that George Floyd laid the first brick when he called for his mama, but the fact remains that the first wall was built in response to federal officers being unleashed in Portland against largely white groups of protesters. And now, it’s time to build other walls, all across this great nation of ours. Walls are good. They protect what needs protecting. That’s why we’re even partnering with President Trump. Too many of us have lost little ones to the scourge of drugs brought in from Mexico. We’re going to show him that a wall of steel is nowhere near as intimidating or unyielding as a Wall of Moms. Chinga tu madre? Not on our watch.”
