Discussion: WH Spox Denies Having Family Separation Policy, Then Admits To It

Not a farce to believe you can STOP FUCKING CHARGING PEOPLE SEEKING ASYLUM WITH A GODDAMN MISDEMEANOR FOR THE SPECIFIC PURPOSE OF ENABLING YOU TO SEPARATE THEM FROM THEIR CHILDREN, Adolf.

The real policy is to try and make brown people miserable and make them fear speaking up.

Separation is just a symptom of the disease that is Republicanism…

The talking points are the admission: Trump is LITERALLY torturing children and families in hopes of winning Hispanic voters for himself and the GOP by convincing everyone it’s really the Dems’ fault.

I guess Kristol will have to add to his tweet from yesterday:

When even Kristol is mocking your messaging, well whatever.

It’s a good thing that lies don’t have mass, otherwise they entire Administration would have already collapsed into a Black Hole. This shill would have vanished across the Event Horizon at the speed of light…

Anecdotally, I see the media stepping on this story hard, calling out WH lies.
Trump, however, is stomping on a flaming bag of dogshit.

Confronted by daily images of families being traumatized at the border, Republican lawmakers plan to increase pressure on President Trump to roll back a “zero tolerance” immigration policy resulting in parents being separated from children, GOP sources tell Axios.
Be smart: We know that Trump is responsive to traumatic images (including kids being gassed in Syria), and he’s acutely attuned to how issues play in the media. So some well-wired Republicans think he may eventually find a way to change the policy announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Seeking asylum is not a crime. Full stop.

You cross the border, you ask for asylum, there is no crime even if it is denied; you are simply deported along with your children. Charging an asylum seeker with anything before a hearing on their plea is the real crime; add forcible separation from their children and youv’e got a felony.

NB: The policy is not only cruel it is also (predictably) counterproductive: the logical path for asylum seekers in the teeth of such a policy is to sneak across the border along with the rest of the undocumented.

Some of these folks need to take a trip to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. It may not do any good, but it couldn’t hurt.

WH Spox Denies Having Family Separation Policy, Then Admits To It

Because J. Hogan Gidley is not the sort of man who blows his own trumpet, most people are not aware that before entering politics, he was trained as a theoretical physicist. His work raised an important question: Does the quantum wave-function merely represent our limited knowledge about the real state of a system or does it correspond directly to a reality?

Of course, this question pre-supposes another: Is there any objective reality at all? And this is a question to which Dr. Gidley plans to return, but only after he leaves the White House, as neither his colleagues there nor the press corps have encouraged him to deal with it.

They are charging them so that they will always be “federal offenders” in the eyes of the US. That permanently screws them for citizenship, even if they’re granted asylum!

People of good will need to stay focused and not let the word salad coming out of the mouths of administration spokespeople confuse them. This zero tolerance policy is brand new. Previously families were kept intact because everybody knew treating every adult as a criminal would create this precise crisis. That would be wrong. What Trump is doing is on his own dime. This is blowing up into a humanitarian crisis of the first order. It is uncivilized and unChristian.

We all need to keep our eyes on Trump’s horror and not fall for the word salad.

Where’s Super Christian Sarah? She should be the go-to-person on these topics, given her personal relationship with her lord and savior. GOP Jesus surely approves.
