Only in Amer­ica

The Week (US) - - 6 News -

Four­teen em­ploy­ees of an Idaho el­e­men­tary school have been sus­pended for wear­ing Hal­loween cos­tumes that de­picted stereo­typ­i­cal Mex­i­cans fac­ing a bor­der wall. Some of the teach­ers and staff wore som­breros, pon­chos, and fake mous­taches while oth­ers dressed as seg­ments of a wall marked with the slo­gan “Make Amer­ica Great Again.” “We are bet­ter than this,” said the district su­per­in­ten­dent.

A Wash­ing­ton state law­maker has cir­cu­lated a memo call­ing for the U.S. to be­come a Chris­tian theoc­racy in which non­be­liev­ers are killed. Repub­li­can Rep. Matt Shea’s memo, “Bib­li­cal Ba­sis for War,” en­vi­sions a Chris­tian army seiz­ing ter­ri­tory and killing “all males” in ar­eas that refuse to “obey Bib­li­cal law.” Shea blamed the “counter-state” for re­veal­ing his plans; the lo­cal sher­iff sent the memo to the FBI.
