Parker: Trump hits dif­fer­ent low with an­i­mal com­ments

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - FRONT PAGE - L.A. Parker Colum­nist L.A. Parker is a Tren­to­nian colum­nist.

Pres­i­dent Trump de­liv­ered an­other de­spi­ca­ble as­sault on im­mi­grants, this time ..... well, you read.

“We have peo­ple com­ing into the coun­try, or try­ing to come in — and we’re stop­ping a lot of them — but we’re tak­ing peo­ple out of the coun­try. You wouldn’t be­lieve how bad these peo­ple are. These aren’t peo­ple. These are an­i­mals. And we’re tak­ing them out of the coun­try at a level and at a rate that’s never hap­pened be­fore. And be­cause of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we re­lease them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.”

Na­tive Amer­i­cans could have of­fered sim­i­lar opin­ions about Euro­pean in­vaders, men and women who prop­a­gated vi­o­lence, geno­cide and de­spi­ca­ble acts equal to or worse than any MS-13 mem­ber.

Plus, Euro­pean in­vaders pro­duced a sys­tem­atic en­ter­prise for the de­struc­tion or im­pris­on­ment of all Na­tive Amer­i­cans.

Pres­i­dent Trump in­her­ited DNA from those Euro con­querors, a ge­netic coded blue­print that moves him to­ward de­scrip­tions of im­mi­grants as an­i­mals, mak­ing a way for their emo­tional, psy­cho­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal mis­treat­ment.

United States’ agen­das de­liv­ered a par­al­lel as­sault on black peo­ple, defin­ing us as sub­hu­man for jus­ti­fi­ca­tion of slav­ery, Jim Crow and lynch­ings.

A sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion oc­curred with mem­bers of the LGBTQ com­mu­nity as de­trac­tors as­serted that they rep­re­sented mis­takes made by na­ture.

For the record, lynch­ings rep­re­sented cel­e­bra­tions for white watch­ers as many packed lunches and toted blan­kets for hang­ing events that lasted en­tire days.

The hang­ings in­cluded tor­ture, a re­moval of fin­gers and toes sub­se­quently boiled in oil then sold as trin­kets or made into neck­laces and blan­kets.

Cas­tra­tions were com­mon as slaves, al­leged crim­i­nals and peo­ple who crossed racial bar­ri­ers, suf­fered mu­ti­la­tions.

Bor­row­ing from Trump’s “you wouldn’t be­lieve how bad these peo­ple (were)”, amaze­ment ex­ists that peo­ple at­tempt a bypass of U.S. his­tory, one sat­u­rated with vi­o­lence, mur­der and de­ceit.
