"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Well I think I'm goin' out of my head....


Katy Tur points out:

“Perhaps the administration is also arguing this policy that they’re trying to use as a bargaining chip doesn’t even exist,” Tur said. “The Homeland Security tweeted yesterday: ‘we do not have a policy of separating families at the border.’ Guys, a part of consequence of this administration’s policy is separating families at the border, there are now nearly 12,000 kids under the Department of Health and Human Services and it is rising. At the current pace, it would hit 20,000 by August 1st. Let that sink in.”

And all this screaming about "crime" and the "border"?  Not an accident that it reflects exactly the arguments of Hitler in his rise to power.  No, I didn't go there:  Trump did.

Yeah, that's interfering with foreign elections, fer sure:

“Germany last month reported its lowest crime rate since 1992,” Boykin reminded. “Austrian-born Adolf Hitler also used lies and misinformation about crime to complain about groups of people in Germany who had ‘changed their culture.'”

The host of the Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM had even hasher words.
“Crime is not up. This is another lie. And the last line is a chilling call to white supremacists,” Signorile observed. “He’s gone full on Nazi.”

Really; what was your first clue?

"The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility ... not on my watch," Trump said at the White House Monday. "Immigration is the fault, and all the problems that we’re having because we cannot get them to sign legislation, we cannot get them even to the negotiating table, and I say it’s very strongly the Democrats' fault."
No, the Democrats don't sign legislation right now, but ignore the incoherence and stay for the xenophobic racism:  "Immigration is the fault."

This is not going to end the way he wants it to; but damn, is it gonna be ugly before it does.  Even NPR is pointing out his lies on a regular basis.  Long, hot summer ahead, especially in South Texas in those cages.
