a woman literally died yesterday because she needed medical treatment and couldn’t get back into the country she’s lived in since 1995. you utter. fucking. morons.
update: a four-month-old baby who lives in Iran but has family who are American citizens in Oregon was scheduled to undergo urgent heart surgery at a hospital in Portland on February 5; she and her parents are now being denied entry to the United States. these kinds of surgeries take months to plan, and doctors have advised the family that the procedure needs to happen as soon as possible to save the child’s life.
so far, the consequences of the executive orders that “aren’t going to take anything from you or hurt anyone” include the death of a 75-year-old woman and the denial of life-saving medical treatment to a 4-month-old baby. get your fucking heads out of your asses you insensate bastards.
there are literally links right there in my comments. what do you want me to do, come to your house and click them for you?
Few people want to acknowledge when terrible things are happening at the hands of men, even less so when they themselves have a hand in it. This is why the allied groups who liberated the death camps rounded up the residents of the nearby villages and forced them to walk through the mounds and pits of dead bodies, the squalid conditions, by the smokestacks spewing human ashes that they never bothered to question.
This is also why many of them committed suicide by hanging themselves in a basement the next day.
Terrible things do happen. Don’t ignore them. Don’t claim they are the result of sensationalism. If you even suspect that to be true then you have an OBLIGATION to track down the actual truth and say it as loudly as possible. With specifics.
Those who have the most facts, the most citations that can be independently corroborated, are more than likely the ones telling the truths naysaying and downplaying worry do not count.
