I say let LA become an urban, house-to-house warzone with immigration officials being hung from lamp posts. The right needs to see what happens when you go into neighborhoods and start kicking down doors.

It’s not either or unless we let them make it that way.

I mean I won't, but I'd be willing to burn an American flag on TV like a true weekend revolutionary. Give me a ride and I might tag along though.

There's so much fear in the air here, so many of my daca friends have just retreated from the world, most of them have never even been out of state, let alone Mexico. We declared ourselves a sanctuary city this time last year and tbh we're ready to fight.

The ground the wall stands on can't fight back, take its case to court, get in front of a camera and tell its story, or shame America into hanging its head in shame with all the world watching a crime against architecture while chewing on lemons. A wall is an embarrassment. A mass deportation is a narrative.

As for your other question, if Auschwitz was in Ireland wouldn’t you feel like you guys pussed out a bit?
Yes of course. There were Catholic interment camps in Northern Ireland in the seventies you know. But I would personally never refer to Auschwitz as a "Polish concentration camp". It was a Nazi concentration camp that happened to be IN Poland. Are all those "black torture sites" that were uncovered a while back seen as run by those states, or by the CIA?

It had to have been a living nightmare then.
I'm sure there was SOME complicity, for various reasons (scores get settled in wars, sadly) but the point is that making it about whether it was a Nazi (German) camp or a Polish one surely trivialises the existence of same? What: it's not a Polish camp it's a German one. Phew! That was close! We can forget about it now?

I'd be interested to hear Yac's take on this, of course.
