The Only Context to Trump's "Animals" Comment That Matters Is His Vile Nativist Agenda

[Content Note: Dehumanization; eliminationism; nativism; anti-Semitism.]

The apologia for Donald Trump's "animals" comment has begun, and the general shape it's taking is: "He wasn't talking about all undocumented immigrants; just members of MS-13!"

As you probably guessed, I have some thoughts about that.

I resist this sinister trash with every molecule of my being. This is not okay. This is intolerable. And fuck anyone who tries to make it "acceptable," in any way.
