A little more each day. Bit by bit.

Just a little bite today. Maybe even a smaller bite tomorrow.

Just one more teensy weensy little step by this administration toward unthinkable malevolence. Just enough movement to lure the talking heads to create doubt on whether they really really really are concentration camps (which they are). Because the media doesn't know what the fuck else to do. Because children dying and suffering under our name is unthinkable. Because the US doesn't do that, right? So instead of screaming about this atrocity (which some are indeed doing on cable news), let's argue instead over what to call it (which far more people seem to be doing on cable news).

Just a little more movement each day to get everyone arguing over what the camps are CALLED, rather than what they ARE. If labels are important, I guess I'd call them Child Torture Camps.

1. Yep. Pulling the exact same shit they pulled with torture. Rather pretend it was up for debate

than to address the fact that the U.S. was torturing people.

Disgusting then. Disgusting now.

Just plain cowardly.

4. Instead of using their power to illustrate reality, the media is compicit in covering it up

6. This situation reminded me of Vietnam War coverage and how it began to change public opinion

I recall seeing Dan Rather on the ground covering the war on the spot. I wasn't out of my teens yet and it was hair raising.

7. Creeping Fascism

Thatís how it happens every time. Itís never sudden or too fast. It creeps up, while everyone is busy living their lives.
