(Hatred) Tender Age Internment Camps


It is entirely unclear which is the worse name to call these things. Are they “concentration camps” or “tender age shelters”? This is the searing picture on the front page of today’s New York Times. No words can quite match the hatred reflected in this image. The racist hatred that powers the policy of “zero tolerance” and the furious hatred one feels for the people responsible for creating these conditions form part of a circuit, the hatred one feels against the President of the United States and the Republican Party. Never forget and never forgive.

    Well, this shows that there’s a limit to what the President can do, and still maintain his following. About 3.5 years remaining to his term, I think.

    And the migrants, crossing the border, will still be criminally-charged, according to tonight’s news.
