Photographer Who Took CBP Horseback Pictures: 'I've Never Seen Them Whip Anyone'

The establishment media hates facts. It’s kind of indisputable when you take into account that their false reporting has led the White House to change and take away a method to secure the border from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.

Anyone with half a brain knew that when the still pictures came out of CBP agents on horseback attempting to prevent Haitian illegal immigrants from entering the U.S. that there was no “whipping” of them occurring, no matter how badly the media — or inept Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) — seemed to want it to be true.

You could clearly see from video of the situation that CBP agents weren’t whipping anyone, but using their reins to guide their horses to make the apprehensions.

Now, the photographer who took the infamous pictures is speaking out contrary to what the media and D.C. politicians have been telling the American public.

Paul Ratje told KTSM in El Paso that he never saw the agents “whip anyone.”

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

Ratje also said that the incident began when the men attempting to enter the U.S. illegally tried to evade CBP agents.

“Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses,” Ratje said.

It’s really easy for “journalists” and people like White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki to frame the images as “horrific,” when all they have to go on is the images from their cushy offices over a 1,000 miles away from the scene.

But don’t expect President Joe Biden or Psaki to do any due diligence, let alone visit the southern border.
