"we are all worms, but I do believe I am a glow-worm."
This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis
And for the shrieking Republicans who don’t know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps.

Concentration camps are considered by experts as “the mass detention of civilians without trial.”
”I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that we should not — that ‘Never Again’ means something,” the New York Democrat said in a Q&A posted on politicsnowadays’ Instagram page.
to more via the New York Post:
“I don’t use those words lightly. I don’t use those words to just throw bombs,” she continued. “I use the word because that’s what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist and it’s very difficult to say that.”
That's probably one of her best lines, "I don’t use those words to just throw bombs...A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist." Seriously?
FIRST, @ AOC, just to get it out of the way: Just where was this outrage when the OBAMA Administration did it? Were you just too busy bar-tending to rise up against the atrocities way back when and then?
But also, as a matter of record -- it was YOU who invoked the Nazi into the conversation with simply using the phrase, never again. Even YOU said it means something. Yes. It does. It means something in relationship with the Jews, and more specifically, Jews being held in Nazi Concentration Camps. It was YOU who made the dots connect.
And in the second, just who is making these decisions to come to our country illegally -- risking life and limb, risking the separation of minors from parents, risking one's own welfare by having to live in a detention center for however length of time...just who is making these people decide to do this?
This is a crisis on if America will remain America – its actual principles and values – or if we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency.”You mean, like, in an effort to Keep America Great?
Is it authoritarian to know who is coming into our country? Is it authoritarian to have a system of entering and immigrating into a country legally, like, anywhere?
Because, if you consider it fascist to ask all those interested in immigrating to America to follow the rules already in place, then you must think it absolutely barbarian for what other countries may require --
There is no path to legal permanent residency for foreigners who are not of Indian ancestry, except through marriage or by giving up their original citizenship to become naturalised. A person must leave India every five years to re-apply for their long-term visa. Even if you own a business in India and invested heavily in the economy India will never grant you residency.
Gulf states are keen to protect their country's status quo and don’t want to compromise their cultural values or standard of living by allowing foreigners to become permanent members of society. Your only route to becoming a naturalised citizen is by marriage to a national; even this, however, doesn’t guarantee citizenship, particularly for non-Muslims.
Chinese citizenship is legally authorised, but in practice is near impossible. According to the Law of Citizenship, if you're a foreigner seeking Chinese citizenship, you must be either: a relative of Chinese citizens, or permanently living in China, making Immigration to China one of the hardest in the world. Despite a population approaching 1.4 billion, during the Fifth National Population Census (2000) there were only 941 naturalized citizens who did not belong to a recognised Communist Party.
To be considered for permanent residency you must live in Switzerland for 10 years. To be eligible to do that, you must either be a high-net-worth investor, married to a Swiss partner or be employed by a Swiss company in a highly skilled and well-paid roll. In short, those who want to emigrate to Switzerland have a mountain to climb.
gotta love those Swiss, right? talk about strong...teehee "high-net-worth."
OH and if any you happen to have any interest in Mexico -- you may want to start HERE.
But I digress.
The thing is -- we all know what is happening at AMERICA's southern border. It is part of the Democratic coup, undermining this administration. It is about breaking America, by way of a humanitarian crisis at the border, allowing an army of unskilled workers to enter our country, receive benefits, and vote on behalf of the democratic party. This is about control. This is about the absence of Rule of Law. This is about bringing America -- and everything for which she stands -- to a screeching halt.
What's fascist, Little Miss AOC -- [Which by definition, @google -- "A fascist is a follower of a political philosophy characterized by authoritarian views and a strong central government — and no tolerance for opposing opinions"] is how YOUR PARTY -- an army of democrats, progressives, and socialists -- continually band together to attack conservatives -- those otherwise recognized with opposing views. Generally speaking -- and you should know this -- conservatives abhor any version of strong central government control, governments that micro-manage every facet of our lives. We conservatives dig freedom and independence in every way, ya dig?
What's fascist, is the constant pull towards the progressive agenda that your party continually inflicts upon the American people -- without a choice, down our throats and against our will. It's as if there is absolutely no tolerance for opposing opinions, no room for even so much as a conversation of our differences, let alone ways to improve our immigration system, let alone ways to manage the abomination happening at the border.
Elections have consequences, right? The American people spoke (and Russia had nothing to do with it). The American people voted for Trump primarily due to the immigration/humanitarian problem that continues to swell.
Here's a good piece from Nate Jackson, @The Patriot Post, "Everyone I Don't Like is Hitler" for just a little more on what this girl just said.
"A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist."
1. They are being held in what's called a detention center; additionally, no one is performing hard labor as they occupy the shelter (paid for by the American taxpayer), nor are they awaiting execution (see below).
2. Detention centers are NOT this: concentration camps -- a place where large numbers of people, especially political prisoners or members of persecuted minorities, are deliberately imprisoned in a relatively small area with inadequate facilities, sometimes to provide forced labor or to await mass execution. The term is most strongly associated with the several hundred camps established by the Nazis in Germany and occupied Europe in 1933–45, among the most infamous being Dachau, Belsen, and Auschwitz. (thank you Google)
3. The illegal person(s) are entering on their own volition, knowing they are breaking the law, knowing there is no place to live other than in one of our detention centers, with families separated. They don't have to do this, these people.
4. and besides, just like Chris Cuomo to Don Lemon: "A guy who says things that I don't like, whose abusive of the truth, who can be obnoxious for effect, and pander to a group of people in this country is not necessarily a step away from a genocidal maniac."
second that, Cuomo -- but different; it's a sentiment similar to how I felt about Barack Obama.
By the way -- guess who said the quote of the day, "we are all worms, but I do believe I am a glow-worm?"
you'll never guess, unless you know already. teehee
he apparently said such a thing, after being a real prisoner -- a prisoner of war during the Boer War -- and escaping. He was looked upon as an overnight hero (much like that of a certain John McCain...just sayin'). For Quick context, go to Quora.
anyway, that's the day in the life for today.
But @the end of the day, all this girl has to say is, keep it up @AOC -- you give good twitter, girl, real good twitter.
Make it a Good Day, G
