Here it comes. I feel a raging rant boiling up. I know it won’t fly, but I must get something off my chest.
Some of the very Americans who are angry at those who came here illegally as children, those who qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals law, also represent an ideology against which this country went to war.
I refer to the neo-Nazis, the morons who hate all immigrants, particularly those who aren’t of European descent.
On one hand we have DACA residents, many of whom came here as toddlers or younger. They have forged good and productive lives as Americans. The U.S. of A. is the only country they know. Donald J. Trump has decided to rescind the executive order that granted them temporary protection against deportation. They might be rounded up in six months and sent packing if Congress doesn’t come up with a legislative answer.
Those despicable neo-Nazis want them out immediately if not sooner.
If I were King of the World, my preference would be to deport the neo-Nazis over the DACA residents. Yes, yes. I know. They have the constitutional right to express their political views, no matter how vile and disgraceful they might be. The neo-Nazis take the despicability cake by a mile!
While I’m at it, I’ll throw the Ku Klux Klan onto that dung heap, too.
My father went to war against the Nazis in 1942. He was among the Greatest Generation that saved the world from the tyranny espoused by the Third Reich and the Nazis that murdered roughly 6 million Jews in Europe. Nazi soldiers, sailors and aviators tried to kill Dad on multiple occasions.
This is the ideology that some so-called Americans choose to honor with that hideous stiff-armed salute?
Who is more preferable to have walking among us, I ask? Those who have lived in fear because of something their parents did or those who speak as champions of an evil, tyrannical ideology?
There. Rant over. I feel better.
