Trump Mass Deportation a Sham

By Kevin Palmer

      President Donald Trump’s mass deportation crusade against undocumented immigrants is a well-orchestrated sham. If Native Americans are not complaining about undocumented immigrants, then immigration is not the problem. The United States of America was founded by undocumented, European immigrants who imposed themselves on the North American continent occupied by various Indian tribes.

Therefore, immigrant deportation is a fake issue promoted to cover up the real issue of acquiring more power.  That is why Trump became the deportation Wizard of Oz who had to pacify the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion who represent his brainless, heartless, and cowardly supporters. Dorothy and her pet dog Toto represent Trump’s emotion-driven, lapdog cabinet of advisors. As is the case with lapdogs, so it is with presidential advisors. Tail wagging is expected; disobedience will not be tolerated. There can be no disloyal players when it comes to acquiring more power and hoodwinking an angry American electorate.

Moreover, in the book, A People’s History of the United States, 1492 – Present, author Howard Zinn accurately described the present Trump mass deportation sham. In quoting H.L. Mencken, the acerbic social critic of the 1920s, Zinn wrote, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” In 2017, undocumented immigrants are the menacing hobgoblins. In addition, Zinn went on to say, “By turning attention to them, by inventing or exaggerating their dangers, the failures of the American system could be concealed.”

Furthermore, Zinn concluded, “Immigrants were a convenient object of attack, because as nonvoters their interests could be safely ignored. It was easy for politicians to play upon the xenophobia that erupted from time to time in American history.”

Just as in the Wizard of Oz movie, the fearful dupes were told to focus on the imaginary monster and ignore the lever pulling white man behind the curtain.
