Monday Open Thread | Now, They Have Re-opened the Japanese Internment Camps😠😠

You know, when this all started, there were those of us who brought up concentration camps. And, we definitely brought up the Japanese Internment Camps during WWII. But, you had folks, especially in the media, who poo-pooed us, and told us that we were exaggerating, and being melodramatic.

Uh huh
Uh huh
Who’s being melodramatic now, you evil sons-of-bitches.

Trump Administration to Hold Migrant Children at Base That Served as WWII Japanese Internment Camp

JUNE 11, 2019

The Trump Administration has opted to use an Army base in Oklahoma to hold growing numbers of immigrant children in its custody after running out of room at government shelters.
Fort Sill, an 150-year-old installation once used as an internment camp for Japanese-Americans during World War II, has been selected to detain 1,400 children until they can be given to an adult relative, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The agency said Fort Sill will be used “as a temporary emergency influx shelter” to help ease the burden on the government as it prepares to house a record number of minors even though it already operates about 168 facilities and programs in 23 states.

If you already operate 168 facilities….why do you need one that was used as a Japanese internment camp?
These demons are telling you who they are. And, it’s up for us to stand up against this.
Once again, don’t ask me to understand the voters who read this and are okay with it. I don’t need to understand them.
YOU need to understand that I have no respect for them, and want to have nothing in common with them.

And, this happened this weekend😢😢😢

    There isn’t going to be an equivalent series of GOP debates – televised or not …so GOP strategy and weaknesses aren’t going to be played out for all (including previously tuned out Americans) to see – or endlessly poked and analyzed by media and all manner of agenda-driven folk;

    Our Dems can effectively and importantly use the televised debates to not only take control of the narrative on behalf of the country and Americans as a whole, map out a clear, substantive vision for a better country, while dignifiedly introducing themselves to America …


    They can indulge and entertain the salivating media and GOP’s desire for a ‘fight’ and dog and pony show.. and go on and preen and ‘scrap’ and make an arse of themselves … They do this, they lose..

      It’s 2019..

      Thwarting racists in the bud will hopefully ensure that we don’t have to be ‘shocked’ in the future, or suddenly ‘uncover’ racist misdeeds of racists and their sympathizers..

      And thwarting young Mr Kashuv is a good start..

    A fast-food guzzling, notoriously adulterous and philandering thrice married treasonous buffoon who has unprotected sex with high-risk adult film ‘stars’ and other random ladies of dubious repute, is a ‘well-known’ ‘germaphobe’.. who can’t abide coughing in his presence.. and publicly berates grown ass men who’ve sold their souls to him, and who dare cough while he’s doing a propaganda video with George Stephanapoulos…

    The complicit American media for you..

    And the brazen whitewashing, re-framing, muddying up of facts and outright gaslighting continues..

      You know, one day, he will be in a home or under the sadistic care of a homecare giver and he won’t be able to do anything about it. Payback is rough. He will remember every nasty, evil, rotten dirty lowdown thing he did and the terrible hurt he caused and turned a deaf ear to. He wiil be allowed to live because he won’t be able to God. He will be brought to remembrance his diabolical deeds and we will hear and know about it, Also, all the helpless people he let get mistreated will know about it. he will realize that they know. He will shed bitter tears and I say TOO BAD!,

      They didn’t fully appreciate PBO when he was POTUS, and if he now chooses not to get involved in certain things, I support him 100%. They should be calling on Trump to ”do” something for Kyle Kashuv since Kyle is in the GOP’s corner. Kashuv never sat on the couch in the WH with our Forever FL. He sat with Melania Trump. There’s nothing Trump or anyone else can do about Harvard rescinding Kashuv’s acceptance because Harvard is a private institution. Maybe now Kashuv will watch the sh*t that comes out of his d@mn mouth. He’s also learning that ”white privilege” sometimes has some limits. The Harvard Board of Admissions made the right decision in rescinding his acceptance because the institution doesn’t need another divisive, hateful, bigot on its campus.

      This makes my head explode..

      I remember this little pos..

      I remember him being paraded as the pro-gun, anti-David Hogg..

      He became Alt-Right ‘hero’ spouting off twitter …and as reward, spent a day doing photo-ops with the treasonous buffoon, his lazy Birther moll, Kellyanne Conway, Repug senators etc.

      These arrogant, entitled, narcissistic, brazen racists kick and spit and sh*t on black folks daily, and with impunity – and then have the nerve to demand that the same black folks they’ve kicked and spit on and dehumanized, immediately bail them out …on the rare occasion that these racists are held even remotely accountable when their racism finally comes back to bite them in the b*tt..

      In much the same way the very same vicious racists who’ve endlessly dehumanized and continue to spitefully attack my historic FLOTUS and calling her all manner of ape, monkey, ‘tranny’ etc., have the nerve to demand that she immediately ‘help’ the Birther moll.. when one of their gaslighting schemes to fluff her up and legitimize her, fail yet again.. and even as they’re still screaming that my historic FLOTUS should ‘disappear’, ‘go away’ and wish she’d ‘die’..

      If anyone ‘helps’ this little pos, they will be responsible for undeservedly aiding and abetting and enabling and empowering another soulless, depraved, pos Alt-Right racist sociopath …equal parts Paul Ryan, Ben Shapiro, Mitch McConnell, treasonous buffoon..

      There are plenty of good, infinitely more worthy kids out there who need to be uplifted and deserve that spot at Harvard even more.. and the world needs more of those kids armed with a good education and the opportunities an Ivy League education will afford them …and empower them to help build a better world ..


      If he and his cohort want ‘help, this little pos should ask for it from the same treasonous buffoon and Birther moll or Kellyanne Conway and any number of his racist mentors in congress …get them to intercede for him..

      Meanwhile, f*ck this Navid person..

      As if strong-arming one into helping save the arse of yet another little pos racist sociopath, is what will finally ‘embolden’ ones ‘image’ and deem one a ‘moral leader’ and ‘peace maker’ and automatically earn the ‘respect’ – after all these years – of all these same arrogant, entitled, soulless racists (who by the way boast about and clearly admire and prefer their ‘leaders’ be callous, criminal, corrupt, heartless, traitorous, faux-strongmen!)

    Gloria Vanderbilt dead at age 95: ‘What an extraordinary woman,’ son Anderson Cooper says
    Maria Puente, USA TODAY Published 10:19 a.m. ET June 17, 2019 | Updated 10:56 a.m. ET June 17, 2019

    Gloria Vanderbilt, a woman famed from birth as the last of a Gilded Age clan of millionaires, as the subject of a toxic 1934 child custody trial, as an early inventor of designer jeans, and lately as the mother of CNN’s Anderson Cooper, has died.

    She was 95, Cooper confirmed in an on-air obituary Monday.

    “Gloria Vanderbilt was an extraordinary woman, who loved life, and lived it on her own terms,” Cooper said in a statement. “She was a painter, a writer, and designer but also a remarkable mother, wife, and friend. She was 95 years old, but ask anyone close to her, and they’d tell you, she was the youngest person they knew, the coolest, and most modern.”

    Over nine decades, most of them in the public eye and sometimes not in a good way, Vanderbilt’s storied name could have been followed by any number of epithets ranging from sad little Gloria to shy young beauty. She was, by turns and sometimes at the same time, an artist, author, actress, fashion model, designer, creative force, philanthropist, lover and socialite.


    Her relationships included the late photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks, movie star Marlon Brando and singer/actor Frank Sinatra, eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes, and writer Roald Dahl.

    Gloria Vanderbilt has died. She was 95.
    Yes, I had her jeans ‘ back in the day.’

      I remember your initial posting about it, SG2. It sounded surreal. I mean, 9 people dying in a CHURCH? And then, the horror soon came evident.

      • I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. 9 people shot dead in a church, at Bible study. And we know the committed ones show up to every Wednesday night Bible study.

      The narcissists are mutually exploiting each other.. and joining to gaslight the hell out of desperate and ignorant Americans…

      Even more dangerous is the fact that the likes of Van Jones are going to use this woman and her unfortunate ream of low-info followers, to actively aid the normalization of a treasonous buffoon, and worse, help protect his brazen criminality and help keep him in America’s house..

    • eliihass says:

      Democrats can take political sadomasochist Jason Johnson’s agenda-driven, armchair ‘analyst’, faux man on the street anecdotes and dubious debate ‘advice’ and ‘scrap’ themselves into political irrelevance… and not only out of the running, but taking the whole Democratic Party down with them.. And clearing the path for republicans to not only increase their senate numbers while taking back the House, but secure and ensure an actual ‘legitimate’ win for a treasonous buffoon (who they’re not primarying, no matter what Weld says or does – and so won’t be debated or battered up before the generals)..
