“These aren’t people. These are animals” - Donald Trump, May 17, 2018
As families continue to arrive at the southern border seeking mercy and shelter, they find chaos, cruelty, and incompetence in the name of the administration’s policy of “Zero Tolerance.” In fact, there was no blueprint, no action plan, and no thought given to implementing the administration’s decision. Zero Tolerance was the brainchild of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his boss, President Donald Trump. Both men are avid practitioners of .
Sessions described brown brothers and sisters arriving from across the border as inhuman aliens. Sessions’ dedication to racial supremacy goes back to his years as Alabama’s attorney general when he was known for demeaning his Black associates as “boys” and his deep hostility to civil rights workers. He perfected the art of harassing black voters and oversaw the executions of mentally and cognitively disabled people. Sessions claimed that parents who fled to the U.S. with their children, “were scarcely better than human smugglers secreting contraband. ‘If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you,’ he said. ‘That child will be separated from you.’”
But Sessions was more a two-bit player. The President’s atavistic war cries — animals invading the country — struck a powerful cord with his adoring jingoistic followers. In dehumanizing the poorest and most vulnerable among us the President revealed a total gap in compassion.
Last summer a New York Times headline announced that ‘Four Military Bases Prepare to Hold 20,000 Children’. The new military bases were for a new generation of child migrants not for the ‘lost generation’ of children who may never be reunited with their parents and are being kept in a hodge-podge of detention centers, abandoned buildings, and tent cities furnished with cages but no books for children. Trump’s voice, Fox news, referred to cages as if they were a normal way to house children. The mass media suggested that ‘hygiene’ was the most important concern, and cages allowed the custodians to uses hoses to clean them. Meanwhile dozens of adult migrants and young children faced acute medical emergencies. For millions of Americans the hullabaloo about containing Brown migrant children and youth in cages was a simple case of their President fulfilling his promises to his anti-immigration white constituency.
Soon enough the children in cages begin to smell like all caged animals: proof that “shit-hole” nations to the South of the border were sending their garbage, their refuse. Meanwhile, Trump the famed germ-phobic President washed his hands of any responsibility.
Words can kill. The confiscation of children, babies and toddlers is necessary, the administration claims, for their own safety. The primal cries of babies and toddlers begging for their mamas and their papas notwithstanding.
With Zero Transparency the devil-in-the-details are coming out coming in slow, harrowing detail. In the immigrant camps rape and sexual abuse was rampant. Children and youth were handcuffed, assaulted and drugged. According to data from the Department of Health and Human Service, “178 of the complaints were against staff at the shelters — in particular, youth-care workers who escort the children everywhere they go. The complaints range from inappropriate romantic relationships between children and adults, to touching genitals, to watching children shower.”
The purposeful use of children to punish the parents is not new. Violently separating children from the parents, caging children, abusing them, mocking them, placing them with families sympathetic to the “regime” are all signature moves of dirty wars past and present.
While the specter of fascism – “Jews will not replace us,” spikes in hate crimes, the return of anti-Semitism to broad daylight, has been rightly registered, it is the tactics of state terrorism perfected in dirty wars of South of the Border that most resemble the current dirty war on immigrant children.
The danger we are facing in America today is a dirty war such as Argentina, Brazil, and Chile experienced in the 1970s-1980s. We know, because he has told us so many times, that President Trump admires strength and power, especially leaders who are strong macho men. What is happening in front of our eyes is a country entering stage 4-cancer as we incrementally move toward dictatorship.
At our southern border we are veering at a dizzying speed into the terrorist tactics of the Argentine Dirty War. On November 24, 1976, eight months after a military junta took power in Argentina, launching the Dirty War introduced the term los desaparecidos—“the disappeared” to the rest of the world. During the Process of National Reorganization—the junta’s grandiose name for the period of its rule, from 1976 to 1983—as many as thirty thousand people, mostly young Argentines, were separated from their families, kept in detention camps, tortured and disappeared.
The government justified its tactics as part of a war against a revolutionary insurrection waged by “subversive terrorists,” though the junta’s first leader, General Jorge Rafael Videla, defined a “terrorist” as “a person whose ideas are contrary to Western, Christian civilization.”
Approximately thirty per cent of the disappeared were women. Some were abducted with their small children. In perhaps three per cent of the abductions women were pregnant, or became so while in detention, usually through rape by guards and torturers. Pregnant prisoners were kept alive until they’d given birth. The regime’s depravity reached its outer limit with pregnant detainees. Sometimes the mothers were able to nurse their newborns, at least sporadically, for a few days, or even weeks, before the babies were taken from them and the mothers were “transferred”—sent to their deaths, in the Dirty War’s notorious nomenclature.
Baby thefts arose partly from the military’s collusion with retrograde sectors of the Catholic Church, which gave its blessing to the transfers of “terrorists” but not to the murder of unborn babies or young children. General Videla avidly defended the kidnapping of young dissidents and the confiscation of their infants and young children.
The rhetoric against adult migrants using their children “as human shields” has been used by the Trump administration, echoing the words of this Latin American terrorist dictator who was finally convicted of grave humans rights and crimes against humanity.
President Trump's cruel policies have led to thousands of children still being kept in tents, cages, and even in old Wal-Mart stores run by a mix of government and private agencies. Chaos remains the shiny coin of the current regime. Mayor Bill De Blasio NYC announced that he had no idea how many children have been taken (by train, bus, and plane) to New York City shelters run by Christian charities sympathetic to the regime.
Zero Tolerance is based on the confiscation and separation of migrant children while their parents are either detained or sent back to Central America. Private charities have been implicated in the adoption of taken children by respectable White Christian families tasked with turning child immigrant “animals” into real Americans.
The current dirty war on immigrant children is not a new story but part of the history of childhood in the American South under slavery, and to this day among poor Black tenant farmers who had their children removed or recycled through foster homes. There are yet other parallels in the history of Native Americans who have had their children confiscated from their families and sent to U.S. government boarding schools where they were forcibly ‘socialized’ to adapt to White America.
Our history is rift with hidden tortures and violent separations of families. Today’s torture is the separation of children from their parents, too many of which will be permanent. We are being made complicit in this political and moral catastrophe.

Нынешние киевские власти — фашистские агенты американского империализма... Именно то, чего хотят Трамр/ США и в Венесуэле!
Правительство США жестоко нарушало мои права человека при проведении кампании террора, которая заставила меня покинуть свою родину и получить политическое убежище в СССР. См. книгу «Безмолвный террор — История политических гонений на семью в США» - "Silent Terror: One family's history of political persecution in the United States» - http://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com
Правительство США еще нарушает мои права, в течении 15 лет отказывается от выплаты причитающейся мне пенсии по старости. Властители США воруют пенсию!!
ФСБ - Федеральная служба «безопасности» России - вслед за позорным, предавшим страну предшественником КГБ, мерзко выполняет приказы секретного, кровавого хозяина (boss) - американского ЦРУ (CIA). Среди таких «задач» - мне запретить выступать в СМИ и не пропускать отправленных мне комментариев. А это далеко не всё...
