If Republicans let Trump roll them by using innocent children as hostages, he will learn the lesson that brutality is the only key to getting what he wants– an all-white nationalist empathy-free zone for his terminally selfish family to rule for fun and profit.
As made evident by his slavering over such brutal autocrats as Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un, Mr. Trump believes that effective leadership is all about crushing anyone who stands in your way. But even Putin doesn’t rip babies from their mothers and torture toddlers.
Trump once said he could shoot someone and his supporters would be okay with that. Even Trump never said “I could torture a child” but that’s what he’s doing- and his white evangelical cult followers are okay with even that. Trumped GOP followers are now child-abusing enablers.
As anyone paying even minimal attention to politics knows, Trump’s immoral policy is not “the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder Security and Crime” as Trump tweeted. It is rather Trump’s own racist version of waterboarding little children.
Trump blaming Democrats for his inhumane practice of snatching immigrant children from their parents evokes nothing so much as an abusive husband blaming his wife for the beatings he delivers. Trump is a rabid vicious animal. Let’s euthanize him with a blue wave in November.
Republicans decided that America torturing prisoners of war was okay. Now Republicans are torturing migrant families seeking asylum by mercilessly abusing their children. Destroy America’s Republican Trump cancer in a cleansing blue wave. Volunteer, donate & vote for Democrats!
As the Washington Post notes:
This is what happens inside children when they are forcibly separated from their parents.
Their heart rate goes up. Their body releases a flood of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. Those stress hormones can start killing off dendrites — the little branches in brain cells that transmit messages. In time, the stress can start killing off neurons and — especially in young children — wreaking dramatic and long-term damage, both psychologically and to the physical structure of the brain.
“The effect is catastrophic,” said Charles Nelson, a pediatrics professor at Harvard Medical School. “There’s so much research on this that if people paid attention at all to the science, they would never do this.”
That research on child-parent separation is driving pediatricians, psychologists and other health experts to vehemently oppose the Trump administration’s new border crossing policy, which has separated more than 2,000 immigrant children from their parents in recent weeks.
Jesus said “Whoever receives a child in my name receives me but whoever causes one of these little ones to stumble it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the depth of the sea.” May a millstone soon be around Trump’s neck.
Trump is a contagion in bestiality. In a recent poll of 1,000 adults aged 18 and older, a strong plurality of Republicans (46 percent) supported the policy of family separation at the border. Trump supporters are conscience-free empathy-destroying vermin. Crush them in November.
Miller, Trump and White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly regard the fears of migrant parents seeking asylum and the anguish of migrant children as evidence of a good day’s work. They deserve to be destroyed that America may regain her honor.
If you have lost the ability to feel anger when Trump’s abused children weep you don’t have the right to live. Period.
“It was a simple decision by the administration,” explained presidential adviser Stephen-disgrace-to-all-Jews-historical-suffering-Miller, “to have a zero-tolerance policy for illegal entry.” Simple. Simple if you are untroubled by nagging empathy.

Jeremiah 31:15 NCV
This is what the LORD says: “A voice was heard in Ramah (and Texas) of painful crying and deep sadness: Rachel (and all the other Moms) crying for her children. She refused to be comforted, because her children are dead!”
Donald Trump and everyone who “sits at attention ” when he speaks is fully responsible
If possible, please watch ICE director Tom Homan on CNN trying to justify Trump’s internment camps for migrant children who families fled violence in their home countries. After considerable hemming and hawing, Mr. born-again Christian Homan said, “It’s the law.”
“It’s the law” was not an acceptable defense at Nuremberg and it won’t be acceptable now either. Fight back, people. Folks are taking their positions in front of ICE facilities and others are donating to political candidates to push back Trump’s self-inflicted humanitarian crisis.
Feeling like it’s no use in voting for the common good? After the death of her 14-year-old son Emment Till, Mable Till said as they escorted her into the morgue to view her son’s tortured body, two family members grabbed her arms to keep her from fainting. But she told them to let her go because this was no time for fainting. Listen to her words.
“Two months ago I had a nice apartment in Chicago. I had a good job. I had a son. When something happened to the Negroes in the South I said, `That’s their business, not mine.’ Now I know how wrong. I was. The murder of my son has shown me that what happens to any of us, anywhere in the world, had better be the business of us all.”
Vote for the common good, folks. Don’t stay home and complain. Use your limited power. Together we have strength.
My bad. I forgot many readers of this blog may not be familiar with the murders of Emmett Till and Medgar Ever. Here are brief intros via Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmett_Till
What can one say as I live in Randy Bryce’s first Wisconsin Congressional in that very gerrymandered district which favors republican politicians as I plan on putting up a large yard sign in my all Foxbot republican community just to remind them that we have a two party system.
I was told by a Foxbot that voting democratic was sin and wow what could a sane person even say in response?
I had a former Foxbot friend say to me when I told him that my Green Beret nephew was deployed and is a vocal Democrat and that “friend” said that he was a traitor and that was it for me as I asked him to “step outside” for a “little” talk but fortunately for him he backed down.
Many of these folks for lack of a better way of describing them are domestic enemies .
However, many more of them can be reasoned with and we just need a few percentage points in our district to put Randy into the seat.
What else can one do?
“The Negro has been here in America since 1619, a total of 344 years. He is not going anywhere else; this country is his home. He wants to do his part to help make his city, state, and nation a better place for everyone, regardless of color and race. “
“If we don’t like what the Republicans do, we need to get in there and change it.” —Medgar Evers assassinated in 1963 for the crime of registering Black folks in Mississippi to vote (among other things).
“When people saw what had happened to my son, men stood up who had never stood up before.” —Mamie Till
Vote and don’t underestimate your power to change the direction of the river. There may be many Republicans in your Foxbot town who are having second thoughts about Trump. Cheers.
‘They’re crisis actors. Don’t fall for it.’ — Ann Coulter. In semi quotes because I don’t have her exact words. I suppose, give that kid an Oscar! The thing is, we’ve seen movies since we were kids, and didn’t you always wonder ‘who are these stupid henchmen who do whatever the bad guy says? Why don’t they run or kill the bad guy?” And now we know how easy it is to become the henchmen, Sessions , Nielsen. So in that sense, it’s all a very good lesson — we all get to stop and ask ourselves, “who are we, who is America” and some will answer “Trump is America” and I don’t know what it will take for those to reject that image, but in the history of humanity and nations, the outlook is grim.
They have no excuse for carrying out this odious agenda, they’re complicit because no one is forcing them to work for this administration. If at any time people with decency, a conscience and a spine refused to follow these despicable orders they wouldn’t be able to implement them.
Thanks for your words and thanks for the forum.
