Return To The People's Po-lice State
OK, fuck it! Let's just leave aside any weak-kneed, limp-wristed, pansy-ass notions of decency and kindness and respect for sentient creatures. I get it. Times are tough and nobody's feeling charitable right now. But damn it, wake up and smell the FEMA camps! We've been through this before in a dozen different ways, so your I-didn't-see-it-coming excuse doesn't hold water. And your dog don't hunt either.
The end result of the immigration issue will be chips or (more) papers. Take your pick or choose both. You think that by excluding competition for jobs your life will be better, but every act of intolerance gives our government another plausible excuse to tighten the noose and add heavier links to our chains. Mexicans are not your enemy; your government is.
Do you think you'll never be rounded up and put in camps? That you'll never be the target of scorn and hatred? Have you read any history? At one time, Irish and Chinese used to do the work that no one else wanted to do, and they were hated for it. Japanese were rounded up "for their own safety", robbed of possessions and imprisoned. Blacks used to bow and scrape and lower their eyes around white women so they wouldn't appear "uppity". Fear of militia groups might just be the angle our government needs to justify gun-confiscation. Preppers might be accused of hoarding, which of course will be punishable by death.
This is one of those times that I'm not proud to be a human.
