Do Not Let Bigots Fool You; the Border Crises is America's Own Fault
The excuses being used to justify the treatment of immigrants at the border and in detention centers, concentration camps, and private prisons sound logical because the excuses come from one side only. Bigots claim the reason they are being confined is because they entered the country illegally so they should pay the price.
They show indifference when a parent or child dies on the way to America or once they get here. They claim they probably had it coming because they were breaking the law. The law is always their excuse for killing or mistreating people if they are non-white.
Yet, this side of the story is the only side the mainstream media will replay because they too, are bigots and nationalist white Americans. They never tell the public why the immigrants are coming here or the reason their countries are poverty-stricken or overrun with drug cartels, crime and violence. They will never tell you the whole story of how the United States drove many Latin American countries into poverty and struggle.
The truth is, the South American immigration crises is the result of centuries-old American politics. Since the early 1800s, America has taken it upon themselves to take control of South America under the disguise of the south continent being a little brother or close neighbor to the north continent. See, at one time Europe (mainly Spain) controlled South America, slavery and all; but America decided it wanted to take control from Europe.
Over the past century, the United States of America have enforced economic and military power over the south and fought off unwanted enemies and allies such as Europe, Russia, Cuba and any other South American countries that did not want to fall under the rule of the US. They have enacted sanctions (which stifled many South American economies), and infested the countries with drugs, guns, and covert paramilitary operations that assassinated leaders, presidents, and activist who spoke against US control.
They have installed their own leaders in coops, (government takeovers), political infiltration, bribes, crooked deals, and economic embargoes disguised as trade deals. America has used any and every trick in the book to wrestle away South America from the hands of any other country in the world. Like a jealous husband, America will kill anyone who attempts to block their interest. They even made laws and foreign policies based on this very concept.
"U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America in the 19th century initially focused on excluding or limiting the military and economic influence of European powers, territorial expansion, and encouraging American commerce. These objectives were expressed in the No Transfer Principle (1811) and the Monroe Doctrine (1823). American policy was unilateralist (not isolationist); it gradually became more aggressive and interventionist as the idea of Manifest Destiny contributed to wars and military conflicts against indigenous peoples, France, Britain, Spain, and Mexico in the Western Hemisphere.
From the 1870s until the end of the century, U.S. policy intensified efforts to establish political and military hegemony in the Western Hemisphere, including periodic naval interventions in the Caribbean and Central America, reaching even to Brazil in the 1890s.
By the end of the century Secretary of State Richard Olney added the Olney Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine ("Today the United States is practically sovereign on this continent and its fiat is law upon the subjects to which it confines its interposition . . ."), and President Theodore Roosevelt contributed his own corollary in 1904 ("in the Western Hemisphere the adherence of the United States to the Monroe Doctrine may force the United States, however reluctantly, in flagrant cases of wrongdoing or impotence, to exercise an international police power").
American policy toward Latin America, at the turn of the century, explicitly justified unilateral intervention, military occupation, and transformation of sovereign states into political and economic protectorates in order to defend U.S. economic interests and an expanding concept of national security."
So now that they have control over the southern portion of the Americas, the United States have reeked so much havoc that the chickens are now coming home to roost; literally. The economic situation in many South American countries have gotten so bad because of American policy and political interference, that the people of South America are seeking elsewhere to live.
The justification for entitlement is in the eyes of many South America people. If the United States broke us, then dammit they have to fix us; same with the descendents of African slaves and Native Americans. The problem with this search for justification is that white men love for people to depend on them so they can call the shots and have reason to lie about, blame and brutalize those they have neutralized in the first place.
So do not believe the white bigots who claim that people come here because they love America and are seeking a better life. They are coming here because the United States have destroyed their countries and now they are being driven here by the ghost of eternal reparations. Eventually, white America will have to release the rule of this country and return it to its rightful owners. But as sure as dirt, that they will not release it without a fight. And that is where we all stand today.
