Did you know that Anne Frank, whose Diary ultimately became so famous, was denied entry to the U.S.? Read about that — and this America First cartoon by Dr. Seuss — at Snopes.com. Both tellingly on point all these years later, as we reject Syrian refugees who’ve already been through extreme vetting.
(Meanwhile, I wonder what little Anne Frank might have had to say about Jews being removed from the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement. Sean Spicer explains why we’re being ridiculous to criticize this — a child of a Holocaust survivor helped draft it, he tells us. But others think generalizing the tragedy — there were lots of victims, not just Jews — is more in the style of Breitbart and alt-right nationalists.)
And wait! Before you go . . .
This is pretty amazing. Notice #4, the decimation of the State Department; #5, Trump’s having already filed for reelection; and #6, the possibility that he now owns 19% of Russian oil giant Rosneft.
I like to think this is all bogus. Given whom we’re dealing with here, I’m not at all certain that will prove to be the case.
Quote of the Day
Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks. --Karl Marx Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed. -- Gandhi~Gandhi
