I really like it when people are insufferable pricks, but directed in the right way.
"Throughout the texts, illegal border crossers are referred to as “tonks.” A federal court case from 2004, which also centered on accusations of excessive force by the Border Patrol, includes an agent’s definition of “tonk” as “the sound heard when a ‘wetback’ is hit over the head with a flashlight.” Josiah Heyman is the chair of the anthropology department at the University of Texas, El Paso. In research on the border, he’s heard Border Patrol agents use the term “tonk” since the early 1990s. “That’s their position in the hierarchy,” he says of undocumented migrants in relation to Border Patrol agents. “They’re hittable people.”"

I'll accept it.

trigger warning for teethsalad; this video includes disrespect of a CBP officer
Voting for a guy who served in an administration that deported more people than any other presidential administration in history and nearly doubled funding to CBP is so much more adult and dignified and serious than a personal action that even mildly inconveniences the people giving migrants forced hysterectomies.
At some point you need to become a Serious Political Adult and stop looking at actual outcomes for real people and just pay attention to Manichean political theater and the personal narratives of politicians.
Now, come on and put on your comical oversized sombrero and kneel in a moment of silence with the rest of us.
you're right, if only I could get over my selfish insistence that elected people use their power to improve my material conditions I could become a Serious Political Adult and maybe score one of those really cool dashiki scarves, or like a "Notorious RBG" sweatshirt in exchange for my vote
