Defending actions that are obviously and inherently evil is not easy. The excuse of obeying the law does not fly. And blaming your actions on others also doesn’t work. Just ask all the Nazis who were tried for war crimes at Nuremburg at the end of World War II.
Every person in this corrupt administration who supports and defends the splitting up of asylum seeking families is guilty of evil. Creating internment camps for toddlers and infants is not defensible, period.
Call it crimes against humanity or anything else you want, But history will show that the actions taken on our border with Mexico will rank as another ugly, dark and evil episode in the history of the United States.
I do not claim to be a Biblical scholar, but I am fairly certain that Jesus didn’t invite the lost, the broken, the weary, and the stranger into concentration camps to help keep the nation of Israel racially pure.
And when He said, “let the little children come unto me…” I know it was not to rip them from their parents and throw them into cages.
The Predator-in-Chief, the Attorney General, and the majority of Republicans disagree. But, their understanding of faithfulness and discipleship is far different than mine.
I am not sure what their religious beliefs are, or who they claim as their spiritual guide. What I am sure of is they have nothing in common with with the Christ of the Gospels.
The closest I can see them coming to Christ is found in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 25. It is in verses 31 when He tells them, “Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has be prepared for the devil and his angels.”
Let’s get real. The Trump administration is bragging about the policy of separating children from their parents seeking asylum. They claim it’s the law.
The truth is that it’s racism. The truth is that it’s a totally immoral policy supported by a Republican party who is fully complicit in this evil being perpetrated by the Predator of the United States.
We are closer to a white nationalist state than anytime in our history. Those supporting the separation of children from their parents at the border need to remember the Jews rounded up by Hitler. It didn’t start with the gas chambers.
We need to stop this madness right now. This is not the nation I have fought to protect.
I do not give a damn what laws are on the books. Anyone not condemning such treatment of those seeking protection and asylum in our country is complicit with such blatant hatred and racism.
Trump’s greatness is the greatness of Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Russia, or any other dictator you care to name. There’s a vast difference between greatness and evil. And perpetrating evil never leads to greatness…never.
Editorial cartoonist, Ted St. Godard got fired for this cartoon. He was fired for doing what editorial cartoonists are paid to do. This is yet one more direct attack on the freedom of the press.
I applaud Ted St. Godard for keeping a bright light shining on the immorality and racist policies of the Trump administration. More of us need to do the same.
Today we celebrate Father’s Day. And thousands of parents, both mothers and fathers, are having their children ripped from them. Trump’s America is no longer a place of safety for those fleeing persecution or violence. We are now a place where unspeakable cruelty is perpetrated through immoral, racist (and I would add, illegal) policies designed to deter those seeking protection.
If ripping families apart and child concentration camps are necessary to make America great again, maybe we need to redefine greatness. I grow ever more ashamed of my elected leaders for their complicity in supporting this corrupt administration
This is a new low, even for an administration I thought could get no lower. Our nation has always had a policy of granting refuge to those seeking protection and asylum. Not any more; not under Trump.
Now we rip children from parents. We separate families asking for protection. We add to their trauma and their misery. Now we incarcerate them in concentration camps.
This is what Trump and his supporters call “Making America Great Again.”
