THE UNITED STATES OF FASCISM UNDER TRUMP
The Trump Regime ripped children from their parents and placed them in detention camps; and while in those camps, they are forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag in English "to show respect."
To show respect for a country that kidnapped them and placed them in internment camps away from their parents -- the country that took no precautions to have those babies and children returned to their parents, from whom they may be separated for weeks, months, years, maybe even forever, since there is no identification process in place to reunite children and parents.
The innocent are supposed to "respect" a country that does that to them.
Sickening (from Business Insider):
Migrant children are being forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in shelters after authorities separated them from their parents.
The children are forced to recite the pledge in English every morning "out of respect."
This is occurring at Casa Padre, the country's largest shelter for migrant children, which gained attention for its cramped sleeping quarters and dehumanizing practices.
"Let me make sure I have this straight: babies and children who have done nothing wrong are being ripped away from their parents, locked in cages, and being forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in front of murals of Donald Trump, but the biggest crisis of today is 'civility'?" --Julia Conley, staff writer, Common Dreams
