Not Children?

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Inspired by GOP Congressman: Kids At Border “Gang Members” From Culture Of “Rape” (Buzzfeed 7/15/14 17:22).

 

“A lot of these children—quote-unquote–ya know, the first caller mentioned it, ya know, they’re gang members. They’re gang affiliated. Listen, if you’re 14, 15, 16, 17 years old, and you’re coming from a country that’s gang-infested, particularly with MS-13 types, that is the most aggressive of all the street gangs — when you have those types coming across the border, they’re not children at that point. These kids have been brought up in a culture of thievery, a culture of murder, of rape, all of those things. And we’re gonna now infuse them into the American culture? It’s just ludicrous.” – Rep. Rich Nugent (R-FL)

 

“I have placed my death’s-head formation in readiness, for the present only in the East, with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space which we need.” – Adolf Hitler

 

Step 1: Dehumanization.

Step 2: Whatever you want.

 

 

Dehumanization is step one,

After which, anything can be done.

 

Through repeated incitement and insults,

Right-wingers have already dehumanized the adults.

 

But some still view kids with a hint of humanity

(A pesky side effect of their Christianity).

 

Hence the latest right-wing meme:

The “children” are not what they seem.

 

Instead, they’re carriers of disease and crime.

Quick, do something: We’re running out of time!

 

They’re “brought up in a culture” of rape and killing,

So their mere presence should be scary and chilling.

 

Maybe deep down, Mr. Nugent remembers

That the kids are gang victims, not members.

 

They are the ones being murdered and raped,

Which is the main reason they from their home countries escaped.

 

They’re the victims, not the perpetrators,

And those who feel nothing for them are haters.

 

Is that the kind of person you want to turn into?

It will be, if those kids in your mind something evil turn into.

 

Please, America, let’s give them a break.

They’re just little kids, for God’s sake.

Here‘s MHP‘s 7/26/14 panel discussion (part of Nugent’s quote is at the 3” mark; see the Buzzfeed link for the rest).

Here’s Stephen Colbert’s 7/17/14 satire of the right-wing “we love those dirty, dangerous children” meme.

Here’s your theme music, Jesus Loves the Little Children (notice it’s “all the children of the world”).
