The only way this criminal enterprise we call our Administration ends is with more people standing up like this and saying “NO!”. It only ends with the average person deciding not to allow normalization of hate & crime & lies.

Matthew 2: 13 Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” 14 Then Joseph[a] got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt, 15 and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, “Out of Egypt I have called my son.”

I’ve dedicated my career to protecting the rights of free speech and all of the values we hold dear here in America from all threats,”

We need protection from the threats posed by Trump and people like you who support him.

Go away! Far, far away.

“So we’ll go ahead and try one more time, but otherwise I’m going to go back to work and keep trying to secure this country,” the DHS leader continued, ignoring the comment.

They should’ve let him speak - sending him back to work to try to secure this country is what got him into this mess in the first place.

“As a career law enforcement professional, I’ve dedicated flushed my career to protecting the rights of free speech by enabling Trump as the apotheosis of GOP hate and all of the values we hold dear ripping apart families, caging children, and jailing nursing mothers.”

“I’m going to go back to work run the Concentration Camp Archipelago and keep trying to secure ethnically cleanse this country.”

Fixed.

“As a career law enforcement professional, I’ve dedicated my career to protecting the rights of free speech and all of the values we hold dear here in America from all threats,” McAleenan said after being interrupted for the third time.

Translation: “Intolerance of fascism and fascists is un-American.”

On the one hand: I like that they did this.
On the other: There are questions I would like to see asked of these people every time they show up in a public forum. For example,
1) As a person whose job is to collect and detain people in camps, does it bother you that the person setting the policies under which you work has repeatedly voiced support for individual neo-Nazis, as well as nationalist parties and authoritarian dictators the world over?
2) As you oversee detention camps, does it bother you that American citizens once held in the now much-regretted Japanese-American internment camps have spoken out about how much worse conditions and policies (ie childhood separation) are than any they were subjected to at the time?
3) Will you publicly state that you will refuse to follow any policies or orders that you consider to be morally abhorrent or illegal?

Just for starters.

Imagine how much worse these folks would look if they tried to punt on these answers. Imagine how much more on the hook they’d be if they admitted on the record that nothing so far was immoral or illegal in their estimation — or, that they are just following orders.

Waste of time, because he will never provide the answers we’re looking for.

Blah, blah, blah is all we’ll get.

If you want to make McAleenan look like a victim, and spare him the much more challenging task of defending the administration’s policies, this is the way to go. But it seems like short-term gratification at the cost of any strategic ideas as to how to best oppose these policies.
