“Everyone is from somewhere else.” Richard Spencer

American immigrants are not just brown or Muslim.

My mother was Scotch-Irish. My father was Italian. The largest mass lynching in America was of eleven Italians in New Orleans in 1891.

My late wife, Judith, suffered from schizophrenia.

City Council members Kristen Szakos and Mike Signer made a big production of listening to the local immigrants last night in the basement of Covenant Church, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.

They had no answer how to really help them even do simple things like fill their prescriptions for tooth aches without identification.

They did however have some advice on how avoid deportation.

The commonwealth attorney suggested with a smile, “Do the things that ordinary people do. Do not do anything crazy!”

The indirect condescension and direct ableism made me vomit a little in my mouth.

Well meaning liberals in high office are even worse than the violent, loud, powerless ones.

Take them down.
