Time to Highlight GOP Staffers Complicity In Crimes against Humanity

It’s Tuesday, June 26. We are approaching the three month anniversary  of the Trump “No Tolerance” policy that led to the cruel and inhumane separation of thousands of refugee children from their parents and placing them in legal limbo with no procedures in place  to reunite them with their parents.

Despite widespread outrage over the depraved  treatment of innocent children, every news report continues to state that the Republicans are continuing their inhumane treatment of the children. Senators and Representatives who finally were able to visit some of the detention facilities under highly restrictive conditions report traumatized and crying children are being kept in wire cages and sleeping on the floor. There is no letup of the type of treatment meted out by Republicans that the medical profession states un-categorically will result in permanent harm to the children.

I  presume all decent Americans have  complained to their U.S. Senators and Representatives about the treatment of the children.  If you telephoned, you probably got some young staffer (intern?) who promised to pass your message on to their boss.

It’s time to start holding our Congressional staffers responsible for their complicity in the Trump Republican Administration’s crimes against humanity.

I have in recent days made it a point to include in tweets about the children the names of Congressional staffers working for Senators Isakson and Perdue and Representatives Barry Loudermilk and Karen Handel, as representatives of Metro Atlanta’s Republican Congressional delegation. I have included the words in follow-up email messages to their offices.

I do not believe this will change the minds of the staffers or their bosses. They have established beyond the shadow of a doubt they are content to be nothing but obsequious lackeys of Donald Trump. But we need to start establishing a public record of the individuals involved in these heinous acts and the flagrant racism that underlies the acts.

Below is a compilation of my words. I hope you will use them in social media and in your own contacts with the Congressional offices.

General

#GOPstaffers Do all you Congressional staffers realize you are mimicking the German bureaucrats who enabled the Nazi persecution of the Jews? Presume you flunkies mean to use the classic Nazi defense: I was only a cog in the machine and was only following orders. Like ICE.

The flood of reports of children being moved throughout the country in the dead of night, beyond the reach of any legal oversight, proves conclusively the United States Government is committing crimes against humanity. All those complicit will face a day of reckoning for their participation in acts that shock the conscience. I use those words in their literal meaning. I trust Republicans know the context.

Office of Senator David Perdue

Derrick Dickey, COS for Senator Perdue (R-GA): Republicans’ unvarnished racism shown in Trump lies about illegal immigrants’ crime and their numbers, calling Sen. Warren Pocahontas, using “infest,” M. Huckabee photo comparing Pelosi’s staff to MS-13 gang members. What’s your opinion?

Derrick Dickey, COS for Senator Perdue (R-GA): Do you truly have no shame about supporting the kidnapping of children and placing them in legal limbo with no plans for reuniting with their parents? Did you lose a moral conscience, or did you never have one? #GOPstaffers

The U. S. Government’s treatment of the kidnapped children plainly constitutes crimes against humanity. All Republican Congressional staffers should be linked by name to these acts that shock the conscience. I list Derrick Dickey, COS for Senator Perdue (R-GA). #GOPstaffers

Dear Drew Robinson, Immigration aide to Sen. Perdue (R-GA): Governors refuse National Guard participation and airline CEOs refuse use of their planes in the GOP-sponsored child abuse of refugee children. Why do you and your boss remain complicit in keeping them kidnapped?

Office of Representative Barry Loudermilk

Note to Rep. Loudermilk’s (R-GA) COS Rob Adkerson and Homeland Security aide Susannah Johnston: your names bear the stain of being complicit in the inhumane kidnapping of innocent children. The stain will magnify if you fail to act to reunite those children with their parents.

#GOPstaffers To Susannah Johnston, Immigration aide to GA Rep. Loudermilk: What messages did you send to DHS and HHS demanding to know: how many refugee children have been seized, their contact with their parents, how many reunified, what procedures are in place to reunite them all.

Dear Susannah Johnston, Immigration aide to Rep. Loudermilk (R-GA): Governors refuse National Guard participation and airline CEOs refuse use of their planes in the GOP-sponsored child abuse of refugee children. Why do you and your boss remain complicit in keeping them kidnapped?

Office of Senator Johnny Isakson

Note to Senator Isakson’s (R-GA) COS Joan Kirchner Karr and Homeland Security aide Michael Black: your names bear the stain of being complicit in the inhumane kidnapping of innocent children. The stain will magnify if you fail to act to reunite those children with their parents.

Joan Karr, COS to GA Sen. Isakson (R-Trump): On the same day, Mike  Huckabee tweets photo comparing Pelosi’s campaign staff to MS-13 gang members. Trump calls Sen. Warren “Pocahontas,” lies abut illegal immigrants’ crime and their numbers at the border. Any comment on this GOP racism?

A Message to the Senators and Representatives

The following tweets sent separately to Senators Isakson and Perdue and to Representatives Loudermilk and Handel:

“You know that Trump lies about the number of immigrants entering the U.S. and the extent of their crimes. What scum tells Big Lies to justify keeping innocent children in brutal detention? You have lost any claim to be a Christian.”

“Every headline and TV news report screams ‘chaos and confusion’ in reuniting refugee children with parents. You do nothing. When did you acquire this Nazi mentality toward brutality inflicted on children?
