Is This The America I Knew?

I have stayed quiet for a long time, but feel I can't do it anymore. I am shocked and disgusted about what happens south of the border.

The American government has separated children of all ages from their biological parents, then incarcerated them under inhumane conditions and ultimately "lost" more than a thousand of them, meaning that the government is unable to re-connect them with their parents.

These "lost" kids have no beds to sleep in, they can't wash themselves with soap and they can't even brush their teeth. The whole thing is a fucking concentration camp. The U.S. government is guilty of crimes against humanity, and must be prosecuted for breaking international law at the International Court of Human Rights.

It is unbelievable that this is happening in the same country which went out of its way to free Europe from the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler.

But reading just the headlines at NEWSWEEK reveals even more shocking facts about a large part of the American population. One third of all Americans would back a nuclear war on North Korea killing 1 Million people. Think about that for a moment.

Has the nation of Abraham Lincoln been entirely dehumanized? What kind of monsters are living as our neighbours next to us?

A woman and her 3 small children have been found killed near the border in Hidalgo County. It took several days before they were found. Who kills a 20-yr. old girl with two infants and a toddler?

Ever since T-Rump has riled up the stupid hordes, some "vigilantes" think they must "help" border patrol agents by by hunting down border crossing central Americans and giving them up to federal agents. In the case of this poor woman they didn't bother handing her and the kids over to the authorities, but rather killed her little family. Most likely, the now-started FBI-investigation won't result in any arrests. But then, one doesn't need to be an investigator to understand what and why this crime has happened. It is all too obvious.

America is off the hinges. Will it ever recover? I have serious doubts that the nation will heal again in any forseeable future. You elected a monster to be president, you have to live with the consequences.

  2. It's the same people who invaded a defenseless country eons ago and nearly killed all the Native Americans living in this country. The Native Americans are still imprisoned on Reserves and Reservations in north America. The same people who enslaved thousands of Africans that now imprisons children. It's the same people who manipulate the elections and suppress unwanted votes from people of color. These so called Christians are to blame.

  4. “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.”
