Even as the majority of the hate brigades have marched on to the next outrage being the SCOTUS vacancy, a rump movement continues to hammer away at the illegal alien children scam that was the final straw for many on the left who in their own demented minds believe that they are living under Nazi occupation.
With the entire might of the liberal propaganda machine, the rent-a-mobs and all tentacles of the Soros octopus mobilizing for the war on Judge Brett Kavanaugh the separated children story still remains potent to many of the emo-progs and Latino activists who demand amnesty for tens of millions so while it no longer dominates the media, it isn’t going to be retired soon.
One of the most powerful elements of that particular outrage campaign were the comparisons to Nazi Germany and the illegal alien kids (who never should have been here to begin with) to the child victims of the guards at Auschwitz which pushed all the right buttons for the aforementioned loons of The Resistance.
The shameless Holocaust comparison is being made again.
This time by the Salt Lake Tribune which will be one of the biggest defenders of Trump slayer in waiting and soon to be Utah senator Mitt Romney.
The SLT has compared the treatment of the border kids to war crimes which meshes well with the sentiment of socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and for good measure, publishes a picture of empty children’s shoes in a ghoulish cultural appropriation of images of the footwear taken from Jews before they were marched off to the gas chambers.
The largest newspaper in Utah issued a scathing rebuke of the Trump administration’s immigration policies in a new editorial on Tuesday.
The Salt Lake Tribune editorial board compared the separation of immigrant families at the border to war crimes in a piece titled “Our treatment of refugee children is a national disgrace.”
“It can be hard for normal people to grasp that their own government — and its individual agents, officers and attorneys — is involved in a heartless and brainless effort to visit so much deliberate cruelty upon asylum-seeking families,” the editorial board wrote.
The criticism comes as the government is scrambling to reunite dozens of immigrants under 5 years old with their parents in time for a court-ordered deadline — which it said it would not be able to meet.
More than 2,000 immigrant children were separated from their parents and detained under the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy, which called for the prosecution of all illegal border crossers.
The following is excerpted from the Trib’s editorial “Our treatment of refugee children is a national disgrace”:
It can be hard for normal people to grasp that their own government — and its individual agents, officers and attorneys — is involved in a heartless and brainless effort to visit so much deliberate cruelty upon asylum-seeking families. We are separating the children from the parents, depositing them in different places, apparently in sometimes squalid, frightening and sealed-off facilities, expecting children as young as 1 year old to explain themselves and their situation in court and not allowing members of Congress or other independent overseers to check up on what is happening.
If you want to make people believe a lie, the experts taught us, make it big.
And, apparently, if you want to make people sit still for an atrocity, make it just big enough to have no personality, no individual human face.
And, of course, prepare the ground by spending years telling lies about how many people are crossing the border illegally, how many of them are gang members and drug dealers and rapists, basically dehumanizing them in the eyes of many Americans so we don’t become concerned with those victimized in our name and with our money.
The government has been so closed-mouthed and so slow to move that it is difficult at this point to know what it true. But there is a flood of reports that parents are being sent back to their home nations without their children. That they were promised they would be reunited with their children if they agreed to that return but, in many cases, haven’t been.
All this at a time when the president of the United States stirs up public mistrust, if not downright hatred, of the news organizations that are struggling daily to find out the truth about these children and what is happening to them.
This is the kind of behavior that, when carried out by non-superpowers, gets people hauled before the International Criminal Court or some special war crimes tribunal.
Here, all we can do is keep the story alive and hope that Congress — this one or the next — finds its voice and demands both answers and reparations to those damaged by this hateful public policy.
Even Joseph Goebbels himself would be ashamed to publish such emotional drivel and dishonest horseshit but here it is thanks to the Salt Lake Tribune.
