As America lurches closer to becoming a a white nationalist dystopian state, the crazies under their supreme leader are starting to show their true colors. (Pun intended.)
First, let’s turn our attention to the Director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, who, incredibly, declared yesterday that the Emma Lazarus poem written on the Statue Of Liberty was meant for people coming over from Europe only. Yes, he really said that.
“Well, of course, that poem was referring back to people coming from Europe where they had class-based societies, where people were considered wretched if they weren’t in the right class, and it was written one year after the first federal public charge rule was written. “
It’s scary stuff, but this is just how Mr. trump wants it. The White Nationalist in chief has drawn a line in the sand. And with the help of people like Stephen Miller and the elected republican sycophants enabling him, he will purge this country of brown and poor people if he can. Ken Cuccinelli earlier gave us his own personal take on what Lazarus really meant with her poem. To him it was only poor people who could stand on their feet that we should welcome to our shores. And just in case we weren’t clear, he wanted us to know that it was European poor people who could stand on their feet and not those other people.
Now, obviously, with the white nationalist in charge, the white nationalist mass has been emboldened.
Don’t believe me?
Just look at at these few examples:
A sheriff in Mississippi.
A jailer’s wife in Arkansas.
Young high school graduates in Illinois.
And, of course, the police are still being called on black men for….well… being black men.
