Enjoy Your Slave Tomatoes and Hormone Chicken, Neoliberals
A Report From the Frontline of the Trump Child Immigration Outrage
When my daughter was 9, she began to develop breasts.
When I took her to the doctor, he stunned me by saying it was not unusual. He was seeing children as young as 6 menstruating, with developed breasts and pubic hair.
He said that he — personally — wondered if all these kids going through early puberty could be related to hormones in milk and meat. I immediately switched to organic everything.
My daughter’s breasts stopped growing. She entered puberty at a normal age: 13.
Now she is 25. The problem was well-entrenched in 2002 but an average physician was unsure of the cause. Almost 20 years later we know that hormones in meat, antibiotics in feed, and petrochemicals in containers all contribute to early puberty.
The moment my innocent young daughter began to grow breasts is the first moment where I began to seriously question medicine (the doctor was concerned but had few answers) and food safety. And society. What the heck was going on?
Back then I was afraid to talk about what was happening to my daughter. What if I mentioned it to another mom and she snapped, “That’s not happening to my daughter!” One day I’d been waiting outside of her classroom next to another mom.
“Do your kids like the Harry Potter books?” I asked.
“We only read one book in our house,” she replied.
I don’t think that lady is likely to know too much about slave tomatoes, hormone chicken that makes first graders grow breasts and pubic hair, or whether Trump’s immigrant child concentration camps popped up in April, 2018 or such facilities and policies have been in place for a long time. But I’m sure she could tell me a lot about Biblical prophecy. If you’re a neoliberal, you look down on this Conservative Christian lady. You probably think, “What an idiot!” Maybe you even make fun of people like her on the regular. Like, on your social media where your friends pat you on the back for being so enlightened. You only need friends of your same kind anyway.
The Trump Administration has been attempting to explain to the public why they deem it necessary to detain immigrant children coming across the country’s southern border separately from their parents. Increased child and parent separations are occurring and the Administration plans to build five new child-only immigrant detention camps.
New being the operative word. The Trump Administration is in its sick, twisted way, “improving” on something that’s been going on a long time. Something that has never stopped in our country and many — perhaps all — other countries — in varying degrees.
Anybody that can be exploited is. By any and many means.
Usually, not always, those who are exploited are dark-skinned. Frequently, they don’t speak English. Women and children always suffer greatly.
The Neoliberal outrage about the child immigrant detention camps is “Trump’s an Orange Hitler.” As if we haven’t heard that since 2015.
Henry Wismayer wistfully explained how the “liberal” (neoliberal) outrage machine has given rise to conservative or nationalist backlash. He described vague guilt and freefloating anxiety resulting from a meal at a London diner with his family. I’m guessing more than one item on his affordable plate of delicious breakfast chow got there because of toxic corporate food slave labor.
As I was going to sleep last night I realized: the Trump Admin child separation policy isn’t about how racist Alabama’s Jeff Sessions is or how the Orange Hitler wants to pander to his 62 million member Nazi white supremacist base.
It’s a hostage system to better enforce worker compliance that also offers tidy profits to malignant carceral private prison vampires: Geo Group and CoreCivic (formerly Corrections Corporation of America).
The system functions so Henry can eat affordable rashers of tasty bacon (see, I know a few UK slang terms — MMM that Masters in Literature is paying off bigtime now!) and cheap E.coli slave eggs in London. So here Wendys can keep putting slave tomatoes on dollar menu burgers gobbled by neo-Nazis.
Most people give zero thought as to how the food they shove in their pieholes gets on their table. They don’t pick cotton by hand no more, they mostly speak Spanish and pick tomatoes and get $250 a week. That’s reasonable for 80 hours of work don’t you think? They can always go get a better job. They can always go back home.
Free — free to be herself! Alejandrina had a caring and progressive leader in her new adopted home country. He’s a thoughtful man still struggling with understanding how times have changed, rape no longer being a joy bestowed on lucky females.
No one should be surprised that today’s child detention centers are an evolution of Bill Clinton’s immigration policy from the mid-1990s.
That’s when my daughter started eating the trash food that damn near made her start her period in 3rd grade.
That’s when I bought the line about everybody being able to choose their own life and women being able to have it all, have a career and be a mom too.
I never gave a second’s thought that the moral rot, naked vice and aggressive celebration of greed of people like the Clintons — because I’m not like them, because I was an ordinary person — I gave no thought to where this parade and panoply of “laws” and corporate fascism worship would lead us to this day.
Not consciously. Subconsciously, I wrote Imago. Because my dreams told me we were all damned. We were all going to Hell and only the least among us could save us.
Every single law passed during the mid-90s by Clinton in concert with his friend Newt Gingrich has borne fruits as terrible as Billie Holliday’s strange fruit from the subprime mortgage crisis to the incarceration of a million black men to the tens of thousands of missing indigenous women and girls to the endless wars to the destruction of the middle class. To black families in Boston with a net worth of $8.
There are two plausible reasons why the dogs of today’s media, consolidated into just 5 companies with Bill Clinton’s full support, have shared the Hitlerian outrage of child and parent immigrant treatment with you.
First, the Immigrant Child Detention Outrage is meant to distract from the horrible corruption obvious on all 500+ pages of the Inspector General’s report revealing the conduct of the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Secretary of State emails.
Second, well — of course it’s about money. The Trump Administration’s ICE team has raided some food producers more than others. I’m thinking there might be some type of vig at play. And the food industry (this raid doesn’t target Tyson and maybe they don’t want to pay) is fighting back.
You don’t think about this stuff. But the people who sit at the top of the corporate pyramids that make the toxic frankenfoods you shove in your neoliberal piehole give a great deal of thought as to how to make more money and expand their profits. Their methods are well-entrenched and they involve exploiting human workers, using terrifying food frankenscience, and addicting customers by any means to ensure repeat business.
For example, it’s more profitable to force growers to “grow chickens” from egg to market in less than 6 weeks by pumping them full of antibiotics and stuffing them with hormone and high fructose corn syrup drenched feed.
After they finish with that, we feed it to our children.
At age 6, some of them grow breasts and pubic hair and start their periods.
Another whole industry springs up to “treat” this problem.
This is the wonder of progress and our modern society, the best country on Earth.
Tyson, headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas, isn’t quite in America’s top 100 companies by revenue according to Forbes.
There has always been that pesky issue of paying people to do work. It’s hard to believe after the past 20 years that companies still have some residual belief they might be stopped from officially using literal slaves here in the U.S. but they do rely upon the 13th Amendment and the carceral immigration pipeline. Citizens and legal residents go to for-profit state prisons and county jails. Non-citizens and non-legal residents go to the immigration detention centers.
I said the other day and believe that the people who started the Trump Child Immigration Outrage miscalculated. If this isn’t the final piece of information that wakes the public up to their true situation, it is certainly an important milestone. One of the cornerstones of the whole sick system is exploitation of interracial suspicion and hatred. Whites are supposed to not care that little brown kids are kept by themselves in cages and that brown preteens are picking their Wendy’s slave tomatoes. They are supposed to hate the brown people who don’t speak their language and blame them for taking their jobs and making their families suffer.
This will prevent them from noticing they’ve been addicted to toxic corporate food that comes from these creeps and are the money farm while the chickens are the meat portion of the cash pipeline and they won’t be hired by Tyson because they speak English and might somehow break through the monolithic structure that protects these poison-purveying food slavers.
For the neolibs who’ve been to college — they’re supposed to hate and look down on the white Neo-Nazi Trumpers and tell themselves how much smarter and better they are.
So, like we read things in English class, let’s break this down.
This “individual” (I use the term loosely) said they hoped the Child Immigration Outrage Crisis would lead to Trump being impeached.
I mildly stated, “Shouldn’t the children be freed and reunited with their parents first?”
You can see the succeeding parts of the conversation above.
You’re stupid! Jeff Sessions’ speech!
I don’t need to explain why there are immigrant detention camps. Fuck you.
You’re an idiot. Your head is up Trump’s ass.
This is #Resistance to Trump. The person even responded to me (picture indicating white female) in preference to Matthew (picture indicating brown male).
The thesis of this article is: if you will accept 8 year olds with breasts and pubic hair as “normal” yet think anything will change for the better if Trump is impeached you probably aren’t going to lift a finger to help a little boy or girl crying in a chain-link enclosure in your own country — one that’s been there for years — reunite with their mom and live a healthy, happy life.
I’ve got an answer for Henry’s question about how the neoliberal fauxrage machine has led to a cultural crisis in the west.
Lazy, immoral, soulsick people who can’t even be decent to their own families much less acquaintances or associates, aren’t going to do anything other than gobble their Chipotle slave burritos and tweet insults about Trump. The problem is compounded by the neoliberal need to believe they are morally superior to others. It’s one thing to know you’re a selfish slob and glory in it like the people who were so eager to buy Wendys when they learned the company used slave tomatoes. It’s another to be unaware of your own negative behavior and how it contributes to corrupt systems of slavery that exist only to deliver wealth to a tiny group of exploiters.
I see people using this term “virtue signaling”. I’m not sure it’s possible for Beelzebub to signal “virtue.”
This is a request for money.
My husband tells me he’s texted or emailed at least once a day by Democrats requesting that he donate money to fight Trump or something else of a similar nature.
Back around the time my daughter could have become one of the toxic Frankenhormone children going through devastating early puberty, my best friend told me that Satan was real. He was a tangible physical presence in the world. I didn’t “pooh pooh” her but I also couldn’t grasp how that could be true.
Now I do.
Satan writes every article that tells you robots will take your jobs or that brown people have destroyed America. Satan is on every television channel. He’s all over YouTube. He demonetized every non-mainstream YouTube channel. He runs Medium. He laid you off. He foreclosed on your house. He told you that hormones in chicken couldn’t get into your body or your child’s. He set up those slave tomato fields. He controls the people who make these decisions, from this racist Stephen Miller to the people who came up with Florida’s slave tomato system. Don’t buy Italian tomatoes, by the way. The same thing goes on in Italy.
He tells Jeff Bezos that it’s not enough money to make $275 million a day, and to earn what his median worker earns in a year every 9 seconds.
Why do people think Christ turned over the moneychangers’ tables in the Temple?
Because He, to quote the neoliberal party line troll, “Had his head up Trump’s ass?”
Atheists, do you really hate this man so much? Or do you hate the ones who hide behind his name? Like the Pedo priests and warmongering pastors and Evangelical perverts?
Christ said the Temple was a “den of thieves.”
My grandfather used to always tell me “It’s always best to tell the truth. That way you never have to remember what you said to someone if they ask you a question.” A liar is always caught. The Nazis were hung at Nuremberg and Hitler shot himself in the head.
This is all happening for a reason. We cannot take the weight of the evil any longer. It all has to come to a head and break. That time cannot come soon enough for me. Certainly it cannot come soon enough for these little children kept in cages and their parents, for the people in the tomato fields, for the lady who is dying of allergies from the antibiotics she was forced to give her chickens to pay off usurious loans to Tyson and their ilk, for the little child struggling through puberty in first grade, for her parent, for the grieving mother of a disappeared indigenous woman, for the people suffering throughout this hemisphere because of this choking, sickening, endless stream of lies, vice, rampant ego, and greed. Always and ever. Greed.
Note: within 1 hour of publishing this article, Trump signed an executive order to end the child and parent immigrant separations. He’s certainly keeping Satan hopping. Just being a human keeps the Devil a-goin.
