  1. Children and parents being exterminated…I’m not sure at this point, I’d be surprised and I certainly wouldn’t be surprised that trump’s lowlife base would be all for it

    • That last part is what scares me the most, that his base would not only go along with it but cheer it. You know this creeping rise of nationalism and ethnic superiority has happened in the past in other countries. They did not end well and history rightly shows how horrible they were. Hugs

  2. The most thorough bath imaginable would not be able to take away the stench which these abuses are leaving on the country, not even after Trump is gone.

    The Republicans who defend this have gone beyond throwing away their principles to support Trump — they’re throwing away their humanity as well.

    • Agreed. I just ache for the families torn apart. Yet the ones doing are the one who claim to stand for family values. What families? What values? Hugs

      • You have to understand how these people use language. Among them, “family values” is code for “God hates fags”. It doesn’t mean anything else. They show no sign of actually valuing families in any context. It’s just a code phrase that refers to something totally different. It’s like how “life” actually means “forcing women to carry unwanted pregnancies to term”.

        Fundies who endorse, or are silent about, the separation of children on the border can do so because they have embraced the racist world-view of the Trumpanzees (many of them held that view already, since there’s a huge overlap between fundies and Trumpanzees). Racism and the re-defining of a whole ethnic category as a threat enables people to dehumanize member of that category and accept atrocities against them, as long as they refrain from thinking about it too deeply. As Goering said, “It works the same in any country”.

        • Thank you Infidel753. Sad but true. I fear it will get worse before it gets better, because it will take the people wanting to change it, wanting to change themselves, and most wont want to . Hugs
