daca-daca-daca-daca-daca-da!

Это все, конечно, качественный цирк, как и предыдущие вопли по поводу “отмены DACA” фашистом Трампом, но результат вырисовывается вполне однозначный: фашист Трамп “отменил DACA” явно затем, чтобы Конгресс дримеров тут оставил. А уж что конкретно удастся под это дело еще пропихнуть, будет видно дальше. Вполне возможно, вообще ничего не удастся: репутация Stupid Party не на пустом месте образовалась.

UPD:

Democratic leaders on Thursday clarified that they did not reach a final deal with President Trump on protections for young immigrants protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“President Trump’s tweets are not inconsistent with the agreement reached last night,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a statement.

Тролль с большой буквы

For the last 100 years, Western colonialism has had a bad name. It is high time to question this orthodoxy. Western colonialism was, as a general rule, both objectively beneficial and subjectively legitimate in most of the places where it was found, using realistic measures of those concepts. The countries that embraced their colonial inheritance, by and large, did better than those that spurned it. Anti-colonial ideology imposed grave harms on subject peoples and continues to thwart sustained development and a fruitful encounter with modernity in many places. Colonialism can be recovered by weak and fragile states today in three ways: by reclaiming colonial modes of governance; by recolonising some areas; and by creating new Western colonies from scratch.

Профессор университета Портленда, между прочим, где антифа и прочий прогресс. Бесстрашный совершенно человек, надо полагать. Силы света еще не разобрались, шутит он так или всерьез пишет, но возмущенную петицию уже запустили для начала.
