Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, July 14, 2018

Do not misbehave. Do not sit on the floor. Do not share your food. Do not use nicknames. Also, it is best not to cry. Doing so might hurt your case. Lights out by 9 p.m. and lights on at dawn, after which make your bed according to the step-by-step instructions posted on the wall. Wash and mop the bathroom, scrubbing the sinks and toilets. Then it is time to form a line for the walk to breakfast. "You had to get in line for everything," recalled Leticia, a girl from Guatemala.

What kind of person leads a child to believe that crying because you've been separated from your parents is a bad thing?

How do Trump supporters live with themselves? Ruining NATO, separating children from their parents, etc. We have never had a President this evil before.

Just wow - it's not like these kids were there to be punished right? Oh wait... MAGA...

"Cleaning toilets."

Oh it's a jobs training program for jobs Americans won't do.

I didn't realize Trump's immigration plan was to create an army of bigly trained indentured servant custodians.

These children will be Trump's future Mar-o-lago janitors.

Not to mention, there's bound to be a few he'd consider dating when they turn 18. He prefers foreign women to American women by a 3:1 ratio.

I don't think it's likely he would date them because they aren't white enough for Trump but if they were just simply teens on a jet owned by Epstein...

Hum, sounds about how I grew up as unlike libbies whose mommies did everything for them, we had a bed time, had to clean our own room, make beds, and clean bathroom, etc.

Really, you grew up in a cage with no parents?

That explains a lot.

Did you raise your kids in cages too?

Kids should do chores it teaches them responsibility.

#14 - A President should not KIDNAP, RENDER and TORTURE little brown-skinned children.

Fixed your tepid comment. No need to thanx.

This is who those folks are. They justify separating little kids from their parents and then defying a court order to reunite them with stupid comments about learning responsibility. Obeying a court order is a big responsibility STUPID!!! Not violating children's rights to be with their parents is a big responsibility HATER! You guys need psychological help beyond what the DR can supply. And worse, you don't even realize it but you are both sick. I pity you but I pity your families more.

Apparently they also grew up in homes where touching their brothers and sisters was not allowed.

This goes a long way towards explaining their startling lack of empathy.

Soon I expect to hear them say, prisoners get three hots and a cot, it is humane for Trump to send all the homeless to prison.

I guess you don't know what a "hug" is, Patron.

This explains a lot about the overarching sense of anger and loss that makes up your character

You had a miserable childhood, and your revenge is everybody else should have one too.

You support passing on the abuse and neglect you suffered as a child to these unfortunate children.

Monkey see, monkey do.

Coincidentally, most child molesters were themselves molested as children.

It's not enough just to disagree with the policy, some people have to generate fake outrage over every little thing. We all know the same people crying about the no touching rule would be screaming about unwanted touching taking place if they didn't have that rule. The same people calling any semblance of structure fascism and child abuse would be complaining about how it's irresponsible to leave the children to their own devices and give the nothing to do, not to mention the risk of having adult contractors come in to their bedrooms and bathrooms to clean every day.

From the moment it started, taking these kids reminded me of what happened on arrival at certain German camps.

Hmmm.. Now if you could just stop their parents from defying our laws and sending them here with gang members, we might be ok.

Definitely not as long as empty land has more voting power than American citizens.

That certainly explains US Senator Roy Moore (R-Alabama)

And Congressman Rick Saccone (R-Pennsylvania)

And Governor Ed Gillespie (R-Virginia)

That "empty Land" has Americans in it too, who's values may be different from the crowded liberal sewers you are referencing.

The electoral college was created to protect the rights of the Americans in those "empty" lands. And thank god for it.

"The electoral college was created to protect the rights of the Americans in those "empty" lands."

That's a bit oversimplified, but it raises a valid question:

What mechanism exists to protect the rights of the majority of Americans not in "empty lands?"

A parent having a child do chores is parenting.

A government making imprisoned children clean toilets is slavery.

So you grew up a captive without being able to touch or comfort anyone without your parents and being ordered to do work. Explains a lot.

BTW - Sounds like THIS "Libbie" did a hell of a lot more than you. You barely touched on the basics. I had to work to - about 20 cords of fire wood in the summer, mowing the 3.5 acres of lawn, maintaining the 2 acres of garden, etc. And then I became a teen and worked too. Delivered papers, picked berries, mowed lawns, etc. BUT that is NOTHING in comparison to what is being done to these innocent children.
