Subject: RE: BS: The Alternative Facts Thread
One of the most disturbing parts of Donal-Jerk's speech the other night occurred when, with one of the clumsiest acronyms you'll ever see, he announced the formation of VOICE (Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement) based on an Alternative Fact:

(from the article) "Singling out the crimes of immigrant communities serves no legitimate public safety purpose, since immigrants are actually less likely to commit a crime than non-immigrants. Likewise, 56 percent of all deportations occur without the incidence of any crime committed whatsoever, and less than 12 percent of deportations involved what most would call a "serious crime" or class 1 offense. Anyone trying to justify increased deportations with immigrant crime are arguing against themselves, because the vast majority of deportations have nothing to do with serious crime. Creating this hate-list will do nothing except provide official government sanction to the opinions of white supremacist groups and the alt-right."

The Trump/Bannon regime are setting up a phony scapegoat just as the Hitler/Goebbels regime did in the previous century. How long before we see a modern day Kristallnacht.
