In our episode 28 of Madness Chronicles, we will see the insanity of lack of understanding. Remember, insanity is a state of mental illness, serious and extremely foolish behavior, and a state of frenzied or chaotic activity. Let’s take a look at our current insanity after the last Presidential Debate.
Last Friday morning, after the presidential debate on Thursday night, America witnessed the degree to which our education has fallen into the trenches of despair. President Trump, answering a question, said: “” Children are brought here by coyotes and a lot of bad people, cartels, and they bring them here, and they used to use them to enter our country. “
In response, his opponent, Joe Biden, said: “These more than 500 children came with their parents … the coyotes did not bring them,” says Joe Biden, responding to President Trump. “It makes us a laughingstock and violates every notion of who we are as a nation.” And the United States listened and responded.
Twitter reads like the night sky on July 4th. An anonymous tweet read: “How the heck does a coyote actress bring a full human to the other side of the border ?! A tweet from Karlous read:” Since when did coyotes start bringing kids here? “He tweeted,” Are children brought here by coyotes? “Umm? Nicole Schumann from PR News Online wrote:” What does ‘children are brought here by coyotes’ mean? Really?
Oh, it gets better. Someone on Twitter named CEO Harvey tweeted, “Children are bought here by coyotes” -WTF, DONALD TRUMP. Tennessee Titans fullback Khari Blasingame responded, “I thought I was stumbling when I heard that.” Are these adults? Then there was actor / producer Sendhil Ramamurthy, who tweeted: “Damn, coyotes are so much smarter and more capable than I ever gave them credit for. I apologize for underestimating you.”
Politicians also intervened. Georgia State Representative Dar ‘shun Kendrick said: “Did @realDonaldTrump just say that 545 kids who can’t find their parents came through’ cartels and coyotes’? Sir, stop talking,” and another professional soccer player also chimed in. Cleveland Browns star Eric Metcalf “The kids came to America in coyotes!?! Am I missing anything?” Looks like you’re missing something, Eric.
We have saved the best for last. These two tweets push us to new lows of social ignorance. Natalie Campisi of Forbes magazine said, “I’ve seen a lot of coyotes here in SoCal, but I’ve never seen one with a child.” It is said that he later deleted his tweet. Smart move, Natalie.
You may remember the name, David Hogg. He became famous after a Florida school shooting when the left paraded him singing their anti-gun song. David, now attending Harvard University, tweeted: “Imagine calling immigrant parents ‘Coyotes’ who bring their children to America for a better life. The level of xenophobia is disgusting.” You know what is more disgusting, David? Ignorance runs through our American society in 2020.
The biggest achievement on the coyote crisis comes from USA Today. They felt the need to clarify the matter in a full article. Its headline reads: Fact Check: Trump did not mean that actual ‘coyotes’ take children across the border. If you need more proof of our descent into ignorance, read on USA Today.
Just for the record, a ‘coyote’ is a common term among border patrol agents and politicians regarding smugglers on the southern border.
May we wake up from this madness before it is too late. I wish you good health, and until next time, have fun, enjoy life, and watch out for the madness between us. It’s 2020 and it’s getting out of hand.
