The Hidden Truth

They have always said that history repeats. As the United States continues to fall into disgrace with Trumpism being the order of the day it should come to no surprise to begin to see the similarities of what took place in Germany in the 1930s and what is taking place today. By order or decree Trump and the Republicans have already set in motion and by design directives that will be one of the most insidious objectives our government has planned in our nations history.

Disguised in the recent tax bill, the Trump Administration cut a deal with the nations largest employer {Walmart}. Within this tax bill there is a clause that stipulates a very generous tax cut for Corporate Walmart. Hidden without media or public awareness are underlying conditions by which our government and Walmart will use this tax cut. The recent closings of Sam's Club and the subsequent over 10,000 now unemployed Sam's Club employees have made it possible to offer a pittance hourly wage to many Walmart employees. But, that only covers just what is on the surface. Could it be that there is a more diabolical scheme in play? There very well could be considering of what is already happening in places like Chicago.

Chicago is just the most recent site where drug users are being sent. This is because Chicago already has facilities in place to handle the large numbers of addicts. Think heroin and other addictive drugs. Now, when we relate what is happening to drug addicts, think about our immigration policies that Trump is already attempting to do. With the many closures of Sam's Clubs presents a very real possibility to be used for another purpose. These are buildings now soon to be vacant buildings, are large enough to refit into holding sites for the nations illegal immigrants now awaiting deportation.

When we look back in history we remember what the government did to the many Japanese American citizens during World War II. We also have to look back to what the Nazis did to the Jewish population in Poland and Germany during the 1930s up until the end of the war. Now, when we look to what is already happening right here in the United States today with the increasing epidemic of drug use we see a very disturbing trend. People are being forced into situations where they have really no control over where they are being sent or how they are able to receive the help they need to say recover from their drug addiction.

If the recent closings of Sam's Clubs are in fact related to the tax cuts by the Trump Administration and the rest of the Republican party for the purpose to retool these buildings for the sole purpose like the interment camps for the Japanese Americans during the Second World War and like the Nazis with their concentration camps to house whom ever the government deems unsuitable for American citizenship is by far the most un-American policy directive since World War II.

This is proof enough that the President and the majority of the Republicans have not a shred of compassion for their fellow man. To sweep up the many immigrants that have come into this country to find a better way of life only to ostracized and treated like cattle herding them into places to wait deportation is in this day and age unthinkable and yet that is exactly what is going to happen if the American public remains silent. This also proves that we have yet to learn from the mistakes we made in the past in order as to not repeat. Yet, here we go again repeating history only with a far more gruesome reality for so many human beings.
