There are people and institutions in this country with moral standards and an ability to understand evil when they see it. The Salt Lake Tribune is one of those institutions that is not afraid to go after a government -- the American government -- for its complicity in war crimes against children and families.
Trump cultists who continue to support the Trump regime are complicit in this evil as well.
Utah's largest paper compares child separation to war crimes in scathing editorial
The largest newspaper in Utah issued a scathing rebuke of the Trump administration’s immigration policies in a new editorial on Tuesday.
The Salt Lake Tribune editorial board compared the separation of immigrant families at the border to war crimes in a piece titled “Our treatment of refugee children is a national disgrace.”
“It can be hard for normal people to grasp that their own government — and its individual agents, officers and attorneys — is involved in a heartless and brainless effort to visit so much deliberate cruelty upon asylum-seeking families,” the editorial board wrote.
"The piece accused the government of “dehumanizing” immigrants and “telling lies about how many people are crossing the border illegally, how many of them are gang members and drug dealers and rapists” in order to make Americans ignore the situation.
“If you want to make people believe a lie, the experts taught us, make it big,” the board wrote. “And, apparently, if you want to make people sit still for an atrocity, make it just big enough to have no personality, no individual human face.”
Remember when the GOP used to be the party of "Law and Order?" It is now, under President Porn Star Shagger, the party of Lawlessness and Disorder.
