Kirstjen Nielsen just declared that DHS will commemorate the event by offering free tacos to all employees for the rest of the week.

The United States will continue to be a world leader in providing humanitarian assistance and working to forge political solutions to the underlying conflicts that drive displacement.

I actually experienced physical pain reading that.

This is all part of Taco Bell's promotion "Steal a child, steal a taco".  Free Dorritos Locos Tacos for everybody!

I don't get the headline.  Isn't separating and locking the kids of asylum seekers up in concentration camps how the other countries celebrate world refugee day?

I dont understand these people.

You'd think they'd keep their heads down what with all the angry attention getting thrown around, but no.

Dumb tweets about kids while children are imprisoned or missing.

Talking about refugees while this same shiatshow is going on, AND when the US backed out of the human rights council, real smart.

I cant tell if its malicious behavior or if they're just that stupid.

Maddow talked about this last night.  The WH wants this level of outrage and conflict - it energizes their base of people who don't think and only react to inflammatory rhetoric.  It's what they think they need to avoid getting clobbered in November.

CSB time:

Practically daily, I drive by Pompeo's high school alma mater. They have an electronic sign out front, and amongst the rotation of student birthdays and other announcements, his name and pic are on there with a "Congrats to alumnus, now SoS" blurb.

I'll be watching carefully to see when that gets removed from rotation, because that will portend his career's imminent demise.

I'll let you know when that happens. Because fark that guy.

That's the problem with being a c*nt. You know you're being a c*nt, but you tell everyone around you, "F*ck your feelings," and then you get sick of being called a c*nt, because you know, deep down, that being a c*nt is a bad thing, so you make an effort at trying to show everyone how much of a c*nt you aren't by denouncing some kind of c*ntery, only to forget that you're guilty of the very same c*ntery, which is how you got called a c*nt in the first place.

C*nts.

We always joke about "sticking it to the Libs" but it really is more important to them than just about anything else. Pompeo isn't tone deaf. He's not misreading the room. He's sticking it to the Libs.

I had this dog on a rural gravel road on my daily commute that loved to chase cars, and if you slowed down, he'd run in front of your car and make you drive about five miles an hour because he was a jerkface of a dog. One day, I thought that I saw him run off to the side, so I started speeding up, and 'THUMP'. Went right under my Jeep tire. He got up and was yelping and crying and obviously his leg was hurt. I immediately stopped and drove to the farmhouse with the dog limping behind me to tell the guy about the dog. Turns out that it wasn't even his dog, it just came over every day to eat his dog's food and bother his chickens. And then, as I was driving out to leave and continue my day, the dumb dog began to chase me down the road again.

I feel like this dog's entire existence could be a metaphor for the Republican Party right now.

Republican voters support tearing brown children away from their brown parents.  The bigger they can make this controversy, the more likely the (R) voters will reward them at the polls.

You just have to think like a deplorable human being.

I'm not sure that any (R) voters beyond the handful of shrieking cultists ready to drink the Koolaid really support this one. Among my conservative friends, I see a great deal of support for the law; but very little support for the policy of separating the families. You may consider it a distinction without a difference; but when even my firefighter friends who think Trump sits at the right hand of God are wondering what should be done better, I promise you that they don't support tearing kids away from their families.

They may support closing the borders; they may not oppose family camps (that's going to be a liberal fight); but the GOP stumbled badly with the separation policy, and they may not be able to recover.

We all know that's not going to happen.  Their goal is to keep their opponents in a constant state of outrage.  It's intended to distracts them from concentrating on a cohesive strategy to beat them on Election Day.
