An immigration lawyer, Andrea Martinez, was busy doing her job of reuniting a mother and child who had been separated, when something slightly unexpected happened. Rather than being a facilitator of the happy reunion of a poor immigrant family, she became the victim of ICE thuggery and got her leg broken for her trouble. Now, most times ICE officials, like cops, are smart enough not to abuse people who actually will be believed when they report them. But this particular asshole not only broke her fucking leg, he also held her hostage in a detainment room for nearly an hour without medical treatment. Why? Because he fucking can, that's why. Shut up, snowflake.


From The Daily Beast:

"He slammed the door on us," Martinez said. "The ICE officer pushed us out and didn't let us follow our three-year-old client into the lobby, and then pushed me to the ground. I was wearing high heels, so that's when my foot was fractured and my leg got all bloody. And then my pants ripped. But then he called me back in and detained me for another forty minutes or an hour."

Okay, so not only did he push her down like a common refugee, but then he decided that it was obviously not enough to cause her pain; he needed to use his power to detain to make her suffer for making him hurt her, right? I was under the impression that law enforcement was obligated to send for medical assistance if they injured you, unless you were black. The rules change so often it's hard to keep up.

"He locked me in an office where I couldn't get out and he didn't let me call 9-1-1 or use the phone or anything," Martinez continued. "And I told him, 'I'm bleeding, I'm bleeding, can you at least get me a first aid kit?' And he said, 'No, it's not severe enough.' And then my foot started swelling."

Hi. Anyone else seeing this for the hostage situation is actually is? If they would treat an actual attorney like that, I am HORRIFIED at all of the horrible shit I'm imagining them doing to refugees who are too scared to complain. Not only did they abuse this woman, they also separated her from her minor client, left her bleeding, and what was his main concern do you think? Her welfare? No, of course not!! Like most totally innocent people who are doing nothing wrong at all, he was concerned that she might be recording him.

"Martinez said in a statement the ICE officer called the Federal Protective Service and "continually looked at my phone to make sure I wasn't recording him."

Totally normal behavior. Please stop being so rude and calling him a fascist thug, y'all, and try to be civil about this totally normal shit that is now our reality. Yelling about abuse just makes you look unfriendly. Smile at your oppressors! Or else!!

ICE officials gave a statement about it which is absolutely not one bit informative, clears nothing up, and will not make you feel one iota better:

"Early in the morning of June 26 an incident occurred at the Kansas City ICE office while ICE ERO officers were attempting to reunite a mother with a family member. We take any allegations against ICE personnel very seriously and are looking into the matter. Until a review of the documentary evidence is completed, ICE can issue no further public comment on the matter."

Uh, huh. Sure. We will be waiting with bated breath to see you conclude that she threw herself in front of the door and he was really super awesome about the whole thing and watch you give him a medal for his valor.

On the one hand; ICE is literally out of control and acting like wild fascists. On the other hand, we have Democrats who are taking up the issue of whether ICE should even exist. Kamala Harris is really getting suspicious of the role ICE plays in our society and thinks that perhaps it might be time to reevaluate this agency and reform that shit or start from scratch.

From Huffington Post:

"There's no question that we've got to critically reexamine ICE and its role, and the way that it is being administered, and the work it is doing," Harris said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "And we need to probably think about starting from scratch."

She's not the first Democrat finally accepting the fact that although ICE exists and plays a role in our society, we don't actually need it to survive, especially since we don't actually like the role they play. And for all of the idiots who think our nation will fall apart if we don't have Runaway Refugee Catchers, I beg you to shut your piehole and realize that ICE is only 15 years old, and if it were a poor child the GOP would have cut its welfare off years ago for being a greedy taker. For now, we will simply wonder when this hell on earth will end and ponder important philosophical questions like "Do immigrant cages come with bootstraps?" while waiting for the apocalypse.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.


Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
