family values america, really
America has a strange history concerning family values. In recent years, the Republican Party has worn that mantle like a choke chain about their necks. But when one takes a realistic look at what family values has meant in America one has to wonder which America they are talking about. A few historical examples serve to shed light on these dubious proclamations:
Now we have entered a new phase in which new immigrants and some refugee asylum seekers are having their children stolen from them by ICE agents. This horror is fully sanctioned by the Trump administration's John Kelly, chief of staff, and the Director of Homeland Security. This program is the result of the bigot in the White House statements about Mexican rapists, MS-13 gang, created in America, and racial profiling.
Combining that with Trump and the GOP's goal of denying food stamps to working families, slashing the children' health insurance program (CHIP), and banning funding for women's healthcare one can only conclude that family values don't mean shit in America!
