Each and every resident of the United States of America came from another country accept for the Native Americans.
Recently our president admonished four women of color to go back to where they came from and pronounced that the women hated our country. Three of the four members of Congress were born in the United States and the fourth’s family moved to the U.S. when she was seven years old and is an American citizen and, I say again, an elected member of Congress!
I watched members of Congress and the vice president stare impassively or avert their eyes as they were visiting a detention center near the Mexican border. As the people that were inhumanly caged…without the benefit of soap or tooth paste or water to drink, without first asking permission or being told to drink out of the toilet, called out to them and attempted to plead their case!
So here we are…our president’s family comes from Germany and his mother, ‘Mary Anne MacLeod, came from the Hebridean island of Lewis, off the west coast of Scotland.’ Google
Do you recall when the president referred to African countries and Haiti as, ‘shit hole countries?’
‘First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out-because I was not a socialist.’
‘Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out-because I was not a trade unionist.’
‘Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-because I was not a Jew.’
‘Then they came for me-and there was no one left to speak for me.’ Pastor Martin Niemoller
