American Hypocrisy over Trump's Inhumane and Racist Zero Tolerance Policy Approved by God

Liberals, especially the Hollywood liberals, progressives, especially the democratic party progressives, and democrats in general (because of Trump ya know) are all angry and indignant about the Trump administration "Zero Tolerance Policy" that has resulted in over 2,000 immigrant children being separated from their parents in the last couple months.

Rightly so.

Of course, republican (some) and democratic (some) party politicians have jumped into the act, showing the appropriate indigation to their constituents in this election year. Trump has rescinded the order evidently based on orders from his humanitarian wife and daughter.

But, what about this?

Madeline Albright, Democratic party Secretary of State under Democratic party president Bill Clinton talking about U.S. foreign policies, i.e., imperialism, regarding Iraq in the nineties that resulted in over 500,000 children's deaths. In 2003 the Bush administration attacked Iraq with their psychopath inspired "Shock and Awe", launching a murderous war killing over a million people including hundreds of thousands of children, continued under Obama, that has continued the U.S. genocidal march against Iraqi children to this day.

How about the child genocide in Yemen, a U.S. backed war in line with U.S. foreign policy of controlling that area which includes one of the seven "oil chokeholds" on the planet, begun by democratic party president Obama?

Yemen: a western-sponsored genocide

https://www.investigaction.net/en/yemen-a-western-sponsored-genocide/

"Yesterday was the two-year anniversary of President Barack Obama’s most indefensible and harmful foreign-policy decision. On the evening of March 25, 2015, a statement from National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan was posted on the White House’s website: “President Obama has authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council]-led military operations. While U.S. forces are not taking direct military action in Yemen in support of this effort, we are establishing a Joint Planning Cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate U.S. military and intelligence support.” Two days later, Obama called Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud and “reaffirmed the strong friendship between the United States and Saudi Arabia and emphasized the United States’ support for the action taken by Saudi Arabia, GCC members, and others.”

How about the war in Syria, started under democratic party president Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and continued by republican party president Trump. Democratic party supporters, in particular the 80% that approve of Obama's job performance, have been active cheerleaders for the regime change/country balkanization operation resulting in record numbers of child refugees and an emerging child genocide situation (see Genocide Watch below).

http://genocidewatch.net/alerts-2/new-alerts/

The UN officials warn that 2018 numbers could be even worse.

"Every single day – for seven years now – children are enduring endless suffering through bombing, bullets, expulsion, famine, and deaths of relatives and friends," said the chief of UNICEF Germany, Christian Schneider. "There is a merciless war against children in Syria, and it needs to be stopped immediately."

Or,

How about this country:

16 million American kids struggle with hunger each year. An estimated 48.8 million Americans , including 16.2 million children, live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As a result, about 1 in 5 children go hungry at some point during the year.

https://mashable.com/2016/07/14/child-hunger-united-states/#RCH8aMbiDaq7

How about Sudan and Somalia? Venezuela? We could go on all day. Like, how about the democratic and republican party imperialist policies going back well over a century that have directly CAUSED much of the human migrant issues south of the border?

https://popularresistance.org/immigrant-rights/

While the U.S. federal government response under Trump has been appalling, what about the actions taken under Obama and Clinton, democratic party presidents with democratic party administrations? Where is the democratic party outrage about the child genocides occurring in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and Somalia directly resulting from U.S. imperialism?

Where is the outrage from the Hollywood democratic party liberals about the 16 million kids in this country that don't get enough to eat?

There isn't any because the democratic party is a full participant with the republican party in the U.S. policy of global neoconservative imperialism, and Wall Street neoliberalism, that has directly facilitated and continued these crimes against and affronts to humanity. Liberals and progressives who support the democratic war party are lacking the moral consistency to justify their outrage against Trump's immigration policies because they can't and won't oppose U.S. imperialism. Democratic party voters can no longer hide behind the lie that the republican party is the driver of U.S. imperialism and the accompanying wars, regime changes, and child genocides. The democratic party is a full and equal partner.

Fucking hypocrites are in the way.

It's time for a true challenge to the political duopoly. This coming election would be a good place to start.

Humanity’s ‘Dirty Little Secret’: Starving, Enslaving, Raping, Torturing and Killing our Children

"Every day, according to some estimates, human adults kill 50,000 of our children. The true figure is probably significantly higher. We kill children in wars. See, for example, ‘Scourging Yemen’. We kill them with drones. We kill them in our homes and on the street. We shoot them at school.

We also kill children in vast numbers by starving them to death, depriving them of clean drinking water, denying them medicines – see, for example, ‘Malaria is alive and well and killing more than 3000 African children every day’ – or forcing them to live in a polluted environment, particularly in parts of Africa, Asia and Central/South America. Why? Because we use military violence to maintain an ‘economic’ system that allocates resources for military weapons, as well as corporate profits for the wealthy, instead of resources for living."

Democrats Finally Deviate From “Let’s Start World War 3” Midterm Platform

Last night Rachel Maddow finally took a break from her relentless warmongering toward Russia, Syria and North Korea to have a pretend cry about the plight of immigrant children on her hit MSNBC show. It was arguably the climax of a loud nationwide outcry against a federal policy of separating parents from their children when they are arrested for illegally crossing the border from Mexico into the United States, and the following day President Trump signed an executive order suspending that policy while congress comes up with some less draconian legislation.

And of course the entire thing was phony from top to bottom. The policy Trump’s political opponents have been blaming on the current administration was actually bipartisan and several administrations in the making, and as with many US policies simply grew progressively more depraved with each new president. The executive order leaves the debate over many, many immigration issues still unresolved, including the fact that it just means families will now be imprisoned together under Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ new “zero tolerance policy”, and the fact that thousands of families will still remain separated. And of course the entire furor only became a mainstream issue because midterm elections are coming up and the “Russia, Russia, Russia” platform of the last year and a half hasn’t exactly energized the Democratic party’s base. And of course that soulless bitch Maddow, who will cheerfully help inflame tensions between nuclear powers in order to give her ratings a bump, was 100 percent acting throughout the entire scene.

But you know what? I’ll take it.

Next she hit the democrats for their saying that Trump wasn't being hawkish enough for them. They had previously went after him for trying to calm down his threat of blowing North Korea off the map and now they are doing this.

That said, I think I can safely say from within my sovereign boundaries that if the Democratic Party were to spend spend June through November campaigning on immigrants’ rights rather than on starting World War 3, the rest of the world will breathe a huge sigh of relief.

Trump-induced amnesia has erased much of the memory of this, but Democrats haven’t always been so goddamn terrifying. They’ve always been phony, and they’ve always been the other half of America’s oligarchic military-industrial complex problem, but before they lost their marbles in 2016 they did at least try to pretend to be vaguely progressive sometimes instead of basing their entire platform on attacking political opponents for trying to get along with Russia or North Korea. A reversion to the way things used to be, when Rachel Maddow was just a garden variety partisan hack instead of a psychotic amalgamation of all the worst aspects of Glenn Beck, Alex Jones and Joseph McCarthy, would be a welcome relief.

Trump started separating kids from their parents in May after Beauregard said that he was going to be doing it why did it take so long for the outrage to start? Hmm, what was the media talking about before they started talking about the kids?

And just in case there aren't enough starving kids already, the republicans today voted to cut $19 billion from the food stamps program. Add this to the $8 billion that they cut during Obama's tenure and the billions during Bush's and then to what Clinton did when he passed welfare reform. I wasn't paying attention to politics when Reagan was president, but I'm guessing that he didn't add funds to the program. Now there is even more talk about ending it and the other social programs altogether.

Where is people's outrage over this shit?! I think people can walk and chew gum at the same time.

"pre-Trump levels of immorality and focus on things that human beings can get behind would benefit everyone, and giving them credit where credit is due when they accomplish something decent is probably a good idea."

And granted she does criticize Obama, but I certainly don't agree that anything is any different now other than the same old tribal bullshit between partisan party animals. I don't get what she's getting at in that article. But she waffles on the dem party from what I've seen.

@snoopydawg Perspective is a good thing, problem is most people don't take the time to achieve it.

"I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested." Smedley Butler

Blaming it on Trump is myopic as it gets. I keep saying, Obama's approval rating among democrats is 80%. That should tell anyone who knows the real facts that the democratic party is not going to be reformed to the left. There is no room.

‘Amid Trump’s war on immigrants and social programs Democrats back massive Pentagon budget for war and repression’, 23 June 2018, wsws.org

"The so-called “John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019”, which passed the Senate 85-10 Monday after having been approved by the House of Representatives in May, allocates $716 billion for the Defense Department, an increase of $82 billion.

This increase alone is larger than the total budget of the Department of Education, approximately $70 billion. It is also larger than the annual military budget of Russia ($61 billion). The increase in Pentagon spending between 2017 and 2019, $165 billion, is larger than the entire defense budget of China."

There are a certain percentage of persons born with/acquiring one among a number of various mental challenges/brain injuries/dysfunctions; those affecting certain 'human areas' of the brain may leave what may learn to superficially appear to be normal humans entirely incapable of empathy and ethics, viewing other life essentially as mechanicals either useful to themselves or not. Those among this group who develop a craving for power/wealth are capable of absolute ruthlessness in achieving their goals and, if not weeded out, will take power where they can.

Unfortunately, the psychopathic are often selected for as corporate CEOs/political powers to suit psychopathic billionaires because, despite being untrustworthy, they will typically do literally anything to increase their share of whatever money and power they can gouge out of others, whether through industry or politics.

So, to such as these it may be considered worthwhile killing off millions of people, especially if mainly involving sick, elderly people and children among the poor, all of whom may be useless to the psychopaths creating the situation in which this occurs, for whatever goal strikes their fancy.

We can't understand their thinking, because it's missing basic survival abilities/constraints/instincts, is essentially parasitic in nature and may be highly destructive through this mental deficiency and there's nothing there to relate to. It's not a fault issue or anything that can be changed - but the psychopathic have to be kept out of positions where they can exert any degree of power over others, because they have no conscience to limit or prevent abuses.

What's being termed 'right-wing' is not 'conservative thinking' and conserves nothing, as many have pointed out. It's the result of the pathologization of societies by propaganda campaigns initiated by psychopaths seeking to 'normalize' what they do unto others, so as to be able to incrementally worsen their own larger-scale abuses to the point of utter destruction, having no natural 'brakes' and considering only their own 'exceptional' selves and, to a much lesser extent, those currently viewed as being useful to themselves.

Such limited perceptions evidently adversely affect their long-term thinking...

'torturing latin immigrant children: a growth industry' diary wasn't about separated children under Trump.

your comment on it baffled me, as on further reflection, so did aspie corner's. the point of it all was that the torture in those 'resettlement homes' (ha) happened for years under obomba, but one under trump-rule. $32 billions worth. the updates on the memos of the navy being given orders to build tent city and other immigrant concentration camps, well that's under Boss Tweet, but in the end...bill clinton began it.

another update via business insider was an immigration attorney who'd flipped his topnot back in the day over the billion bucks obomba was spending to cage mums and chirren, too.

@wendy davis @wendy davis just a flippant remark about the 1600's being just like yesterday, and I mean that literally because I believe time is shorter than we give it credit for. For example, my grandfather's grandfather, who I knew, knew people who's grandparents had fought in the revolutionary war. You can extend that out to torture, treatment of children, etc. Iow, we're just a touch away from our ancestors who burned alleged witches at the stake and put chastity belts on women when the men were away.

The other part, the "bombshell news", I meant this information you provided:

"According to a report in the Wall Street Journal Thursday, the Trump administration awarded multiple contracts involving tens of millions of dollars earlier this year to build detention facilities for children. This confirms that the mass separation of children from their parents, which followed the announcement of the “zero tolerance” policy by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, was not an unexpected byproduct of the new policy, but was planned and deliberate. It is a premeditated crime, the state kidnapping of more than 2,400 children, for which Trump, Sessions, Stephen Miller, Kirstjen Nielsen and other top officials should be prosecuted and jailed.”

Maybe bombshell was an overreaction but it sure shows how they've been lying their asses off.
