Reap What You Sow

I don't take any pleasure from pointing out that American foreign policy 40-50 years ago guaranteed the destabilization of Central America and guaranteed that the damaged collateral of that imperialistic era would one day walk across the Rio Grande seeking family (previous refugees). We fucked ourselves with casual cowardice and repulsive apathy in the era of I Love Fucking Lucy. Our defacto dictators lay waste to Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Cuba as part of a blatantly hegemonic foreign policy THAT ONLY THE STUPIDEST PERSON IN THE WORLD WOULD THINK MIGHT WORK. But working isn't what they were after because the point was to consolidate power and money into the immediate hands that were grabbing and the problems, the holocaust, the flood of refugees would not be seen by eyes filled with worms in desecrated graves. No, the richest families would protect themselves with money from the fruit companies that laid fresh mangoes on the tables of the elite, picked by starving slaves in Guatemala...and that was seen as progress because the alternative was a socialized government in which Americans might have to pay a high price for fresh bananas. Really repulsive history that is now biting us on the ass...but the idiocy of Americans, the stupidity and general dumb fucking knuckle-draggers find ways to blame the current president, whose name is not Eisenhower or Truman or Kennedy!
1952: The first CIA effort to overthrow the Guatemalan president--a CIA collaboration with Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza to support a disgruntled general named Carlos Castillo Armas and codenamed Operation PBFORTUNE--was authorized by President Truman in 1952. As early as February of that year, CIA Headquarters began generating memos with subject titles such as "Guatemalan Communist Personnel to be disposed of during Military Operations," outlining categories of persons to be neutralized "through Executive Action"--murder—or through imprisonment and exile.

It's unfortunate that America has in our history psychopathic leaders, but until we accept that our recent history is filled with atrocities then we will not accept our responsibility for the conditions in Central America, which are what people are fleeing. The ignorance and false pride and delusion of someone who thinks, "These greasy wetbacks are coming to the greatest country on earth..." is astounding. Realize these migrants have swallowed their pride and decided if you can't beat the devil then you have to join him. And for those fucking assholes who aren't totally clear about what I'm saying: WE ARE THE DEVIL. WE ARE DEMONIC. WE DESTROYED THEIR  LIVES AND OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE WE WANTED CHEAP FRUIT CUPS.

Do not deceive yourself that a Guatemalan teenager is coming to Houston because America is known for a loving treatment of his country. We set his home on fire fifty years ago and then fanned the flames for 5 decades and he has not been able to put it out. So he is fleeing his home for the home of the arsonist who set the fire. That's the situation. If your daily dose of Fox News and MSNBC has you crying for elephants or puckering your lips to taste the new scratch and sniff pussy fruit roll ups then you are fucking hopeless. I would trade the entire state of IGNORANT NEW HAMPSHIRE CUNTS with their precious chain link fences and expensive lobster rolls for one Guatemalan village.

An honorable American would write a blank check and give it to the nearest Guatemalan refugee. A complete cunt would kick back and watch baseball with a beer on his fat fucking gullet, all the while proclaiming superiority over everyone like a cheap dress on a dead hooker.
