5 thoughts on “Pilot Guest Columnist Matthew Gabriele: Trump says medieval walls worked; they didn’t

  1. What an extraordinarily silly commentary. Gabriele’s own examples show that medieval walls worked, but he argues that they didn’t.

    Consider his closing statement: “real medieval walls may have closed temporarily to ward off the uncertainty of a world without electric light, but they always reopened the following morning to welcome in those who sought refuge.”

    Translated, this statement says “real medieval walls served a purpose that people of the time considered useful and effective.”

    Instead of being different from the proposed border wall, medieval walls were the same.

    Gabriel — and The Pilot/WAPO — would have us believe that our own common sense is nonsensical.

    Gimme a break.
