America the Ugly

I rarely get overtly political, but I cannot remain silent in this issue.

 

The “zero tolerance” policy recently enacted (May 2018) and enforced by the current administration is unconscionable, cruel, and inhumane.

 

American was born upon the principle of being a haven to those who had no place else to turn. To incarcerate those people seeking asylum under the 1951 Refugee Convention is not a moral action, no matter what your religious beliefs may or may not be. It certainly doesn’t correlate with ANY Christian value.

 

Trump was unable to blackmail Congress into paying for his wall when he threatened to shut down the government. Do not allow this new tactic of blackmail to succeed.

 

Trump has, despite his protests, the power to stop this policy with a phone call. When he blames the Democrats for this situation, he is using a tactic typical of an abuser. “You didn’t do what I told you to do. That made me hurt the children. See what you made me do?”

 

If you have a modicum of pride for your country or your morals, members of Congress, do not allow him to terrorize this country further. He has shown himself incapable of the diplomacy, intelligence, talent, or basic human compassion required for the job of President of the United States. Do not let him spiral our country into the dictatorship his ego craves.

 

Trump has shown his unwillingness to comply with international standards of decency as defined by the 1951 Refugee Convention. he has removed us from the UN Human Rights Council. He is shedding America of the moral imperative to behave with honor. Once he no longer feels bound by those constraints, what will he feel free to do? His actions WILL be our fault if we don’t stop him now.

 

Don’t let this happen to our beloved country. Help us to take the ideals of America back.

    Thank you for speaking out, my dear Danish American born abroad. Trump is a really hateful man, and his greatest skill is that by word and deed, he inspires a contagion of negativity. There, I got through that without saying a thing about the antichrist!

    Robert F. Kennedy said …

    “Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.”

    You have demonstrated this well, fine scribe. Proud to be your friend.

    I agree with the cruelty of the Trump policy, but, and here is where I get in trouble with decent folks like you, is when I as where the outrage is against the hundred of thousands of fleeing immigrants we are responsible for in the Middle East and elsewhere. They are dying, drowning, being tortured, abused and nary a word from the corporate media.

    We are being played. I dislike Trump as much as the next clear thinking individual, but, and here again I get in trouble, the establishment/Deep State/Shadow government/fill-in the blank, tried the Russiagate, Stormy Daniels, and now, successfully – in the short term – caged children. If this doesn’t work they’ll show babies being torn from incubators – oh wait they tried that one with Saddam Hussien.

    I think the trick is to maintain your humanity and outrage without being “played”….
