Nazis had propaganda.

US Right Wing has FOX and Russian bots.

There is no immigration problem. There is no problem with immigrant crime.

The Right Wing believes all the racist, xenophobic narratives because capitalism can no longer provide the jobs or hope, and hate is what makes these left-behind conservatives feel better about themselves.

 

Tennessee conservatives are going to suffer and die without health care, but at least they have their endless spite.

Capitalism is built on removing rules that are put in place to protect all of us.

Global crash of 2008 used a feature found throughout capitalism: systemic fraud.

Capitalism lost $44 trillion in wealth in 2008. Then all the bad actors were bailed out by tax dollars.

The fraudsters in capitalism got bailed out and STILL want you to believe socialism is bad.

 

Shows how much ‘white nationalism’ and ‘conservative Christian’ are interchangeable.

Republicans can afford soap and toothbrushes.

Republicans are the party of cruelty towards children. Pro-life was always a bogus term. Now we can see clearly how conservatives manufacture suffering and target children for their sadistic abuse

The Republican Party has a war on Christian babies, toddlers, and children held in their custody. They are being treated worse than terrorists.

Trump and Stephen Miller should be at the Hague.

 

Conservatives Christians and Evangelicals are devout to their whiteness above all else.

4 Severely Ill Migrant Toddlers Hospitalized After Lawyers Visit Border Patrol Facility

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Fascism, Harm, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 05:15

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/four-severely-ill-migrant-babies-hospitalized-after-lawyers-visited-border-patrol-facility_n_5d0d3bbce4b07ae90d9cfe4f

The story at the link above sickens me.  This is what our country has become.  This what we will be remembered for.  Concentration camps turning into death camps.  This is why tRump must be impeached.  These are crimes against humanity.  We need people to know about these conditions.   Letting babies die because of their skin color! Where are the pro-life fanatics?  Please read the article at the link. Hugs

 The kids were unresponsive, feverish and vomiting, yet receiving no medical care, according to lawyers.

The children, all under age 3 with teenage mothers or guardians, were feverish, coughing, vomiting and had diarrhea, immigration attorneys told HuffPost on Friday. Some of the toddlers and infants were refusing to eat or drink. One 2-year-old’s eyes were rolled back in her head, and she was “completely unresponsive” and limp, according to Toby Gialluca, a Florida-based attorney.

She described seeing terror in the children’s eyes.

 

“It’s just a cold, fearful look that you should never see in a child of that age,” Gialluca said. “You look at them and you think, ‘What have you seen?’”

 

Another mother at the same facility had a premature baby, who was “listless” and wrapped in a dirty towel, as HuffPost previously reported.

 

The lawyers feared that if they had not shown up at the facility, the sick kids would have received zero medical attention and potentially died.

 

Don’t look away! We must understand what is happening!

myth versus fact

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Fascism, Greed, Harm, Hate, History, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason — Scottie @ 04:51

Have you heard that children were separated from their parents under Obama & Clinton? Then, you need a little Facts vs Myths lesson. Michelle Martin, PhD Cal State Fullerton summed up the most important FACTS:

There is so much misinformation out there about the Trump administration’s new “zero tolerance” policy that requires criminal prosecution, which then warrants the separating of parents and children at the border. Before responding to a post defending this policy, please do your research…As a professor at a local Cal State, I research and write about these issues, so here, I’ll make it easier for you:

Myth: This is not a new policy and was practiced under Obama and Clinton – FALSE. The policy to separate parents and children is new and was instituted on 4/6/2018. It was the brainchild of John Kelly and Stephen Miller to serve as a deterrent for undocumented immigration, approved by Trump, and adopted by Sessions. Prior administrations detained migrant families, but didn’t have a practice of forcibly separating parents from their children unless the adults were deemed unfit. https://www.justice.gov/opa/press-release/file/1049751/download?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery

Myth: This is the only way to deter undocumented immigration – FALSE. Annual trends show that arrests for undocumented entry are at a 46 year low, and undocumented crossings dropped in 2007, with a net loss (more people leaving than arriving). Deportations have increased steadily though (spiking in 1996 and more recently), because several laws that were passed since 1996 have made it legally more difficult to gain legal status for people already here, and thus increased their deportations (I address this later under the myth that it’s the Democrats’ fault). What we mostly have now are people crossing the border illegally because they’ve already been hired by a US company, or because they are seeking political asylum. Economic migrants come to this country because our country has kept the demand going. But again, many of these people impacted by Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy appear to be political asylum-seekers. https://www.npr.org/2017/12/05/568546381/arrests-for-illegal-border-crossings-hit-46-year-low

Myth: Most of the people coming across the border are just trying to take advantage of our country by taking our jobs – FALSE. Most of the parents who have been impacted by Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy have presented themselves as political asylum-seekers at a U.S. port-of-entry, from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Rather than processing their claims, they have been taken into custody on the spot and had their children ripped from their arms. The ACLU alleges that this practice violates the Asylum Act, and the UN asserts that it violates the UN Treaty on the State of Refugees, one of the few treaties the US has ratified. This is an illegal act on the part of the United States government, not to mention morally and ethically reprehensible. https://www.nytimes.com/2001/12/21/us/meatpackers-profits-hinge-on-pool-of-immigrant-labor.html

Myth: We’re a country that respects the Rule of Law, and if people break the law, this is what they get – FALSE. We are a country that has an above-ground system of immigration and an underground system. Our government (under both parties) has always been aware that US companies recruit workers in the poorest parts of Mexico for cheap labor, and ICE (and its predecessor INS) has looked the other way because this underground economy benefits our country to the tune of billions of dollars annually. Thus, even though the majority of people crossing the border now are asylum-seekers, those who are economic migrants (migrant workers) likely have been recruited here to do jobs Americans will not do. https://www.upi.com/Top_News/Opinion/2016/10/26/Donald-Trumps-wall-ignores-the-economic-logic-of-undocumented-immigrant-labor/2621477498203/

Myth: The children have to be separated from their parents because there parents must be arrested and it would be cruel to put children in jail with their parents – FALSE. First, in the case of economic migrants crossing the border illegally, criminal prosecution has not been the legal norm, and families have been kept together at all cost. Also, crossing the border without documentation is a typically a misdemeanor not requiring arrest, but rather a civil proceeding. Additionally, parents who have been detained have historically been detained with their children in ICE “family residential centers,” again, for civil processing. The Trump administration’s shift in policy is for political purposes only, not legal ones. See p. 18: https://www.aclu.org/legal-document/ms-l-v-ice-plaintiffs-opposition-defendants-motion-dismiss-doc-56

Myth: We have rampant fraud in our asylum process the proof of which is the significant increase we have in the number of people applying for asylum. FALSE. The increase in asylum seekers is a direct result of the increase in civil conflict and violence across the globe. While some people may believe that we shouldn’t allow any refugees into our country because “it’s not our problem,” neither our current asylum law, nor our ideological foundation as a country support such an isolationist approach. There is very little evidence to support Sessions’ claim that abuse of our asylum-seeking policies is rampant. Also, what Sessions failed to mention is that the majority of asylum seekers are from China, not South of the border. Here is a very fair and balanced assessment of his statements: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2017/oct/19/jeff-sessions/jeff-sessions-claim-about-asylum-system-fraudulent/

Myth: The Democrats caused this, “it’s their law.” FALSE. Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats caused this, the Trump administration did (although the Republicans could fix this today, and have refused). I believe what this myth refers to is the passage of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, which were both passed under Clinton in 1996. These laws essentially made unauthorized entry into the US a crime (typically a misdemeanor for first-time offenders), but under both Republicans and Democrats, these cases were handled through civil deportation proceedings, not a criminal proceeding, which did not require separation. And again, even in cases where detainment was required, families were always kept together in family residential centers, unless the parents were deemed unfit (as mentioned above). Thus, Trump’s assertion that he hates this policy but has no choice but to separate the parents from their children, because the Democrats “gave us this law” is false and nothing more than propaganda designed to compel negotiation on bad policy. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-democrats-us-border-migrant-families-children-parents-mexico-separate-a8401521.html

Myth: The parents and children will be reunited shortly, once the parents’ court cases are finalized. FALSE. Criminal court is a vastly different beast than civil court proceedings. Also, the children are being processed as unaccompanied minors (“unaccompanied alien children”), which typically means they are sent into the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHS). Under normal circumstances when a child enters the country without his or her parent, ORR attempts to locate a family member within a few weeks, and the child is then released to a family member, or if a family member cannot be located, the child is placed in a residential center (anywhere in the country), or in some cases, foster care. Prior to Trump’s new policy, ORR was operating at 95% capacity, and they simply cannot effectively manage the influx of 2000+ children, some as young as 4 months. Also, keep in mind, these are not unaccompanied minor children, they have parents. There is great legal ambiguity on how and even whether the parents will get their children back because we are in uncharted territory right now. According to the ACLU lawsuit (see below), there is currently no easy vehicle for reuniting parents with their children. Additionally, according to a May 2018 report, numerous cases of verbal, physical and sexual abuse were found to have occurred in these residential centers. https://www.aclu.org/news/aclu-obtains-documents-showing-widespread-abuse-child-immigrants-us-custody

Myth: This policy is legal. LIKELY FALSE. The ACLU filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration on 5/6/18, and a recent court ruling denied the government’s motion to dismiss the suit. The judge deciding the case stated that the Trump Administration policy is “brutal, offensive, and fails to comport with traditional notions of fair play and decency.” The case is moving forward because it was deemed to have legal merit. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-06-07/aclu-suit-over-child-separations-at-border-may-proceed-judge

America’s Sprawling Detention System For Migrants

Christian Hate-Preacher: Gay People Are Selfish Pedophiles Who Must Be Killed. Hate, Hate, Hate. That is Jesus message

Christian Hate-Preacher: Gay People Are Selfish Pedophiles Who Must Be Killed

In a sermon titled “Make The World Straight Again,” Major told the raucous crowd about how all homosexuals were inherently pedophiles and that’s why they deserved to be executed.

… Know why God gives the commandment for sodomites/homosexuals to be put to death out of love for you and I? Because they’re backbiters. Because they’re whisperers. Because they are unmerciful. Because they are implacable, the Bible says. Because they don’t care anything about anybody else.

All they care about is themselves, and fulfilling the flesh, and they will do whatever they want to, whatever they have to, to fulfill the lust of their flesh, and they don’t care if they destroy your life. They don’t care if they destroy the life of some child by molesting that child and being a pedophile. They don’t care if they destroy that person. And therefore, God says to put them to death out of love for the victim!

… The Bible says that these that would commit this kind of a sin, of sodomy, homosexuality, that they are worthy of death. And that’s not just Old Testament. That’s in the New Testament that we just read that there. And the Bible says that they are worthy of death.

Why are they worthy of death? Well, the Bible makes it plain in the Book of Leviticus, in Chapter number 20 and verse number 13, it says that those that would commit that sin, it says they should be put to death, and it says their blood shall be upon their own head.

Because the sodomites are filthy wicked people that would love nothing more than to destroy and wipe out every Christian on the face of this planet.

Later in the sermon, he blames gay people for having and spreading sexually transmitted diseases and makes this bizarre claim:

… Let’s say I had a disease that was highly contagious. Do you think I would be here with you this morning? No. You know what I would do if I had a disease that was highly contagious, because I love people? I would be quarantined in my room staying away from people, because I don’t want to give you that disease.

He has a very real disease that is poisoning minds. Far from locking himself in a room to protect everyone, he’s traveling abroad and spreading this faith-based mental virus that breeds hatred and bigotry in the name of his God. That is far more dangerous that a disease people could contract only through sexual intercourse.

If you thought the hate began and ended with that conference in Florida over the weekend, you are sadly mistaken.

I am sitting here in a dark room feeling very down.  The spreading hate, authoritarianism, the taking away of rights, the Religious dominionist forcing their fundamental religious views in to secular laws, the making secular countries into theocracies all over the world.   The fact the US is clearly trying to force another country to its knees mostly so we can take their resources and change their unacceptable religion to the correct Christian one.  At least to me that seems to be the reasoning behind our constant attacks on Iran.   I have five articles open on my computer where Christians demanding special privilege to demand my death by law enforcement and the government to deny my rights.   

To me this is the same way Germany went and started world war two.  They started with vilification of groups, making them outcasts.  They made camps and areas where these groups had to go because they were outcasts.   They separated families for any reason they wished.   They denied government services and rights to segments of society.  They Bellicosely demanded the right to other countries just because they thought they were owed it or because they wanted it.  They used the same rhetoric to invade other countries that the US is using to attack Iran.   We are creating another concentration camp for kids at the same place where Japanese Americans were detained illegally in world war two.  The tRump administration has taken any programs away from the kids that would make detention bearable.  They are making it so that the relatives of these kids can not come claim them safely.    What will be this administrations solution?  A wall won’t keep brown skin people out.  What about the ones already legally here.  Will citizenship depend on skin color?  My heart is breaking this morning.  I fell two  nights ago so hard the impact broke the sink cabinet support board and shoved the cabinet beside it back six inches.   I am bruised from my left hip to my ribs.  My hip and back hurt worse than ever.   My new crown still hurts when I eat and it took four months for the last one to stop hurting and they want to do another one in July.  Be well my friends, I see nothing good today.   Hugs

Trump blocks three Florida congresswomen from visiting Homestead child detention center

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Fascism, Harm, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 09:23

https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/immigration/article228933679.html

HHS confirmed the denial to access.

“We have had significant interest for facility visits. To ensure a facility visit does not interfere with the safety and well-being of our [children], we require a minimum two-week notification at the convenience and availability of the facility. This has been policy since 2015,” the department told the Miami Herald in a statement Saturday.

But Schultz, Shalala and Mucarsel-Powell said their denial is “illegal,” referencing Section 234 of bill 115-245 (the 2019 Department of Health and Human Services Appropriations Act), which was amended this year to say members of Congress can’t be prevented from “entering, for the purpose of conducting oversight, any U.S. facility used for maintaining custody of or otherwise housing unaccompanied alien children.”

HHS did not comment on their rebuttal when asked multiple times by the Miami Herald.

“During our last visit to Homestead, we witnessed children living in cramped, prison-like conditions,” the joint statement said, referring to a tour of the facility earlier this year. “The idea to force even more children into an already full detention facility is not only unsafe, but is cruel and violates basic tenets of human decency.”

The move to bar the congresswomen in comes days after the government announced it would be expanding the facility to detain as many as 3,600 children there— a population larger than Homestead High School.
