DEMONSTRATION: Just cause for humanity

Print Article

Liberals, locally, just donít get out and demonstrate much, in whatever number, for whatever cause. But apparently they did just that, about 25 of them, recently. Is this historic or what? In its reporting of the MoveOn protest, The Press might have footnoted an answer to that question. But whatever. The cause couldnít have been more compelling: the brutal, immoral, illegal treatment of immigrant children at our southern border, a direct result of Trumpian policy, if youíll remember, intended as a deterrent to hallucinatory rapists, drug dealers, gang members and other unsavory, non-English speaking types pouring from Mexico into the U.S. in droves. Whose hallucinations? One guess.

Anyway, kudos to Moveon.org and its supporters. Would have been there myself had I known.

While on the subject, it should be noted that the Kootenai County Democrats have taken a stand, as well. They think separation of families is wrong and, according to The Press report, about a year ago passed a resolution so stating. No mention made of counter demonstrations on that occasion.
