*Acts of terror continue across the country, and sadly, the alleged perpetrators didn't need visas or passports to get here. They were all made in America.
Here in my hometown of Philly, a Jewish cemetery was once again vandalized by folks who obviously feel emboldened after the latest elections in America.
It's sad, really, but this is what we have become as a country.
In Kansas, the guy who shot up a bar wanted to know if the three Indian men sitting there had visas and were in the country legally, before he shot up the place, killing one of them and putting the other two in the hospital.
(For the record, they did. )
We know one thing, the trump administration will not be calling the families of these men or apologizing to the immigrant community for his actions, because, to them, what they did is not really terrorism. Terrorism only happens when an atrocious act is committed by a brown person of a certain religion.
Still, maybe it's better that the administration doesn't reach out.
I mean we see what happened when they tried to reach out to the Jewish people.
"Vice President Mike Pence stands with Israel — but flies flags for Nicaragua.
As Pence declared his unequivocal support for Israel during a speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas on Friday night, one of his staffers tweeted out Nicaraguan flags from the official Vice Presidential account — twice.
"Under @POTUS Trump, we will stand with Israel," somebody tweeted out minutes before Pence's speech, followed by a Nicaraguan flag emoji.
The Israeli and Nicaraguan flags both feature blue horizontal banners. But the Israeli flag's banners are much thinner and enclose the six-pointed Star of David, while the Nicaraguan flag's banners enclose a triangle comprised of volcanoes, a rising sun and a rainbow."
