Must use the embed code unless I am somehow missing the mark on the OEN Commons Search. But no matter. Time to take a realistic look at the U.S. and our history of detention centers. Hence my title, as I now briefly explain:
Many or countless others have expressed this before, but the beauty of Trump--sorry to put it that way, but there it is--is that he represents all our country has in practice stood for since its foundation. Kim Iversen I think puts the figure at 40 years here, but I must disagree with her on that and encourage her to read Howard Zinn's "A Peoples' History of America" (as I do for anyone who hasn't read it). Or visit a few Native American reservations and talk to the elders there.
Still, Kim correctly points out that detention centers are nothing new to the U.S. I don't recall if Kim even gets back to the Japanese internments, but again no matter, she express the point as clearly as anyone I can recall reading or watching. Our OCD with Trump will be the end of us, as it pretty much has been since our "anybody but Trump" days.
