  1. In Long Island Speech, Trump Glorifies Violence by Immigration Officers, Recalling Eras of European Fascism and US Segregation. Roger Algase

    In a July 28 Long Island NY speech to police officers that recalls not only his incitement to his followers to "rough up" protesters at his own campaign rallies, but also the glorification of violence against racial minorities during both the Nazi era and era of US segregation.

    See, University of Knoxville (TN) Sociology Professor Victor Ray, writing in Newsweek (March 29):

    Trump Coalition Threatens A Return To The Jim Crow Era.

    Donald Trump, in a speech that was ostensibly aimed against the violent Salvadorean-based MS-13 gang, but also included attacks against all, mainly Latino, unauthorized immigrants, including the overwhelming majority who do not have criminal records of any kind, had the following "praise" for US immigration officers, as quoted by the UK's Daily Mail:

    "They're [immigration agents] rough. I don't want to be - say it because they'll say that's not politically correct...You're not allowed to have rough people doing this kind of work...Just like they don't want to have rich people at the head of Treasury, okay?

    "Like, I want a rich guy at the head of Treasury, right? Right?"

    The obvious meaning, which no child over the age of 4 could fail to understand, was that Trump wants "rough" people to serve as immigration agents.

    In view of the president's admonition in the same speech to local police officers to avoid doing anything to protect the heads of arrested Central American gang members from injury while arresting them, and his support for "roughing up" of protesters at his rallies, and the use of torture, during his presidential campaign, it is clear that the United States now has a chief executive who revels in the use of violence as a method of governing, just as Germany had in the case of its chief executive during the 1930's and first half of the 1940's.

    In a different, but not entirely unrelated development, POLITICO reports on July 28 that Kris Kobach, who has a long history of engaging in a different form of "violence", i.e. though legislation which has to a large extent been thrown out by the courts, against the rights immigrants to protect themselves against police state mass deportation policies, as well as against the rights of minority Americans to vote, may be under consideration as the next Homeland Security chief, replacing John Kelly who has just been moved to White House Chief of Staff.

    Such an appointment, if it takes place and passes Senate confirmation, would be yet another loud and clear message from this administration that neither minority immigrants nor minority American citizens are welcome, or can expect to have any protection for their basic rights, including protection against police brutality, in Donald Trump's America.

    For a comprehensive analysis of Kobach's atrocious record of trying to turn hatred of non-white immigrant and US citizen minorities into legal enactments, or as the ancient Roman poet Lucan wrote 2,000 years ago during the time of the emperor Nero:

    iusque datum sceleri ("bestowing legality on infamy")

    see: The New York Times Magazine (June 13):
