5. Ok, so what analogy should we use

to describe a policy of kidnapping the children of people whose only crime is walking hundreds of miles trying to stay alive and become Americans? Stalin's USSR? The USA of the 18th and 19th centuries?

Ingraham demonstrates her knowledge of right-wing "debate" tactics 101: change the terms of the discussion so now we're talking not about ripping families apart, but about my skill as a debater and whether or not the Trump "zero tolerance" policy is like the Nazis.

Maybe there is no suitable analogy. So that makes it OK to kidnap these children, with no plan for returning them to their parents or guardians? (Insert claim that these are MS-13 gang members and drug smugglers with other people's children, posing as families).


Oh yeah, and another thing: Republicans' insistence on destroying asylum seekers' families is going to bring them down in 2018. Keep doubling and tripling down, morons.
