So let’s start connecting the dots.
- Trump tweets this morning, “Elect more Republicans in November and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive Immigration Bills anywhere in the world.’ Not in his tweet is his belief in more enforcement at the border with less oversight.
- Trump sends troops to the Mexican border to stop immigrants’ caravan
- Fox and Trump are giving all-day, all-the-time coverage to a ragtag band of Central American refugees, who are traveling together on foot for their own mutual safety, lying that there are Arab terrorists and evil gang members among them.
Sounds like a mixture of potential bloodshed and politics.
Who is buying this? Not me. I lived in Mexico for 3+ years. I am not afraid of Latinos, as a matter of fact, I praise them for their work ethic. The majority of the immigrant caravan is people who will work their ass off to give their family a good life. The caravan’s minority will be looking for a way to get by without working - a very small minority.
So our Clockwork Orange POTUS - the appearance of an organism lovely with colour and juice but is in fact only a clockwork toy - has sent troops to stop the caravan. Of course, he’s playing to the racist sentiment that caused Robert Bowers to shoot Jews in a Pittsburg synagogue and be treated by Doctor Cohen who said, “my job isn’t to judge him, my job is to care for him.” Btw, in case you didn’t notice, Cohen is Jewish. I doubt I could care for Bowers or our Clockwork Orange.
Another btw, Tree of Life contributed to Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society(HIAS), an American nonprofit organization that provides humanitarian aid and assistance to refugees. Bowers posted to social media he wanted to kill members of the congregation that supported HIAS because they helped immigrants. Anti-immigrationists and anti-semites are cut from the same cloth.
Let's not conflate Trump's being pro-Israel with him being pro-Semite. Pro-Israel is a political position, pro-Semite is humanitarian. The Clockwork Orange is not a humanitarian.
Next Tuesday we have a chance to begin to Make America, America Again. It needs to be done.
