Who knew that a land founded by immigrants would eventually kick immigrants out? I mean they are on our land, right?
It’s not like our ancestors wiped out an entire population (that already lived and roamed the land) with their bare hands hiding behind the barrel and germs. I mean who knew that the spreading of diseases like smallpox to the Native American community was actually intentional. Hey, you cold? Yeah? Want my small-pox ridden blanket? Yeah? Okay, here you go. A gesture of peace and rest, sometimes permanent. R.I.P.
Also, it’s not like our ancestors tore apart the land disregarding the fact that people actually lived there and replaced them with coal-burning factories, mining fields, trash incinerators and pipelines that ultimately screw marginalized communities while those dominant communities *cough* (middle to upper-class white people) sip margaritas on their patio floor.

Oh, folks, Uncle Sam was only getting started. Listen, putting Native Americans into reservation camps was just a test run, NOW forcibly separating undocumented families has become the new trend. I mean haven’t you heard? The United States is the latest battleground of forcible separations and a future addition in history above Australia’s history of Stolen Generations!
Families seeking asylum, and families wanting a better life from their countries that persecute them, that murder them, that have high crime rates, that have no open job opportunities and for THEM to ask for safety in the land of the free and home of the brave?
I mean, haven’t you heard? Real and documented citizens of America have zero tolerance for the needs of “others”. We separate undocumented families for extended periods of time, we have children practice their first and fourteenth amendment rights…
Just to warn the folks from Honduras walking miles and miles in a caravan seeking asylum in the United States, the ovaries here want to tell you that you’re screwed. Trump has no time for that. I mean he’s going to miss his training at Wii golf! Tread lightly people, POTUS is warning you, step foot in THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY and we will make sure that you have none. Foreign aid? Nah, America is already in a huge deficit, why add more to it.
It’s all about Making America Great Again!
Now, the Trump administration’s new family policy for immigrants has just come out and oh boy IT’S BRILLIANT. I mean granted, the new policy won’t copy the “zero tolerance” policy already in place which you know has only split about 2,500 children from their parents. No big deal –
INSTEAD, wait for it- it will provide immigrant families with a “binary choice,” gotta love America and their binaries, I mean it’s not like the flag isn’t red, white and blue. Last time I checked that equals three, but that’s beside the point. This binary choice will provide immigrant families with the option of:
- Opting to stay together in detention as a family
- Parents could choose to have their children released to government shelters and eventually turned to either relatives, guardians or the foster system
TRUMP, MY DUDE, YOU ARE BRILLIANT.
Next Nobel Prize Winner right here folks. Only the best can win it. I know it. I’ve seen the prize, it’s the greatest prize. And we will win it, every time. It’s the prize made for America. #murica’s prize.
God Bless America.
