First they came for the immigrants...

I started hearing about ICE raids last week, and I initially hoped they were, as ICE claimed, just business as usual, and the apparent increase in raids reflected nothing more than jumpy people paying more attention than they used to.

By Friday evening, it was pretty clear that this was not business as usual, and ICE has in fact dramatically increased its enforcement activities and begun targeting people whose only crime is being in the US illegally. At this point there can be no doubt.

The raids still would have been bad even if they hadn't been unusual, but at least they would have been part of the background radiation of state-sponsored cruelty that we've become accustomed to. Instead, we're seeing something much scarier: a law-enforcement agency suddenly targeting people had previously been relatively safe. How far will this go? Who will be the next target? Nobody knows, and that should scare everyone.

Personally I avoid saying his name, but I'm too impatient to avoid referring to him directly, so I use alternate names. Here are some of my favorites:

Dear Leader
The Mad King
Steve Bannon's trained monkey
Twitler
the shitgibbon
the Orange One
Putin's puppet
the guy who lost the popular vote
Herr Gropenführer
Il Douché
bargain-bin Ozymandias
der Lügenpresident (cf. "Lügenpresse")

What are your favorites?

Steve Bannon's trained money is criticizing US intelligence agencies for leaking information to "the fake news media". I guess to him they're Schrödinger's leaks: simultaneously real and fake.

Word of the day: Auflösungserscheinungen, which means "signs of disintegration".

Paul Ryan: earnest honest forthright son of the Midwest who was born in a log cabin he built himself
