Videos of Kentucky high school students standing in front of Native American marchers and seemingly mocking one Native American drummer during the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington yesterday have gone viral.
Multiple videos posted on social media show Covington Catholic students standing in front of a group of marchers, yelling and jumping as marchers begin to play music. One person in a “Make America Great Again” hat stands within inches of the face of a marcher who is drumming, staring and smiling at him for the entirety of the video.
And then our Democratic political weasels, who are supposed to be our only options against Mitch McConnell and his corrupt band of oligarchical oppressors, pull this:
God dammit, Allison. The reason Mitch McConnell kicked your ass in his last election was because you wouldn’t stand up and call an asshole an asshole. Don’t peddle this “I refuse to shame and solely blame these children” crap. Unload on them like the low lives they are.
Fuck! They go to a religious school and they pull this shit. Kick their asses. Their parents aren’t going to do damn thing, because their parents made them what they are today. Bigoted, petty. low-rent asswhipes who worship the Cheeto coated babyman more than they believe in a just and loving Christ.
A federal judge on Monday found that U.S. government officials have been giving psychotropic medication to migrant children at a Texas facility without first seeking the consent of their parents or guardians, in violation of state child welfare laws.
U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles ordered the Trump administration to obtain consent or a court order before administering any psychotropic medications to migrant children, except in cases of dire emergencies. She also ordered that the government move all children out of a Texas facility, Shiloh Residential Treatment Center in Manvel, except for children deemed by a licensed professional to pose a “risk of harm” to themselves or others. …
Children testified in court filings that staff with the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement would sometimes not tell them what drugs they were being given or why. They recalled feeling side effects such as nausea, dizziness, depression and weight gain. Some reported being forcibly injected with drugs, and others said they felt that refusing medications would cause them to be detained longer.
“I witnessed staff members forcefully give medication four times,” one child held at Shiloh, identified as Isabella M., said. “. . . Two staff members pinned down the girl . . . and a doctor gave her one or two injections.”
According to the report, the girl, identified by the initials D.L., and her mother had fled gang violence in Guatemala. In May, they sought asylum at a border entry point in El Paso, TX. Two days later, immigration authorities separated D.L. from her mother and sent the young girl to an immigration shelter outside of Phoenix run by Southwest Key Programs.
The first incident of alleged abuse occurred last June by an older child at the same facility, The Nation reported, citing a Southwest Key Programs document.
Republicans snatch children from their parents, don’t tell anybody where they sent them, and let them be molested. Then they make children sign a form telling them to stay away from their abuser. These are crimes against humanity, and everyone who voted for the pussygrabber and his party is complicit.
