Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Rep. Steve King and Rep. Michele Bachmann talked about migrant children this week with head World Net Daily conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi because of course they did. Fellow Three Stooges member Louie Gohmert couldn't be there because, I don't know, he probably locked his wallet in his dog or something.
Steve King's contribution to the discourse was to say that instead of trying to do the usual thing of dispersing children held at the border to foster homes and other places better able to care for them, thus risking the wrath of racist stupid people in places like Murrieta, California, we should just make one big internment camp and call it done.
King, a Republican from Iowa, told Corsi that instead of “scattering these kids all over the country,” they should house them all in a tent city along the border.
For her part, Bachmann said that “100 percent of the girls coming up from Guatemala were on birth control” because they expected to be raped along the way to the U.S.
Yeah, I think we're done here. All three stooges have weighed in on the little brown children existential crisis now, and we've added a little Jerome Corsi to the mix, and we've got Sen. Ted Cruz acting as de facto House leader and gun-toting lunatics "patrolling" the border in camouflage looking to intercept these kids and it's pretty damn clear we've now reached the point where all the grumbling and racism and Obama hatred and conspiracy theorizing and gun fetishism and Rick Perry's presidential plans and everything else has wrapped itself all up into a perfect storm of proto-fascist Stupid.
Forget Death Panel Summer or Shark Week, August is ramping up to be Little Brown Children Summer, a month of nonstop hate and bile over a bunch of kids who dared set foot in Our Glorious Native Land without the right paperwork. At this rate, they're going to start finding these kids dead at the border.
