My Brain Is Just Screaming All The Time Now

I haven't even gotten to the hundreds of kids left without parents after ICE arrested nearly 700 people in a single day, targetting a specific food processing company for reasons that they said was because the company employs undocumented people. But we all know that those horrible meat plants do that because citizens (especially white ones) won't do this kind of horrible, disgusting, exhausting, and incredibly dangerous and unhealthy work. This has been an open secret for a long time. Why this company, and why now?

Democracy Now is here with the turd cherry on top of the absolute shit sundae that is this story.

ICE Raids Targeted Company Whose Workers Won Discrimination Lawsuit

The arrests targeted chicken processing plants operated by Koch Foods, one of the largest poultry producers in the U.S. Last year, Koch Foods paid out $3.75 million to settle an Equal Employment Opportunities Commission class-action suit charging the company with sexual harassment, national origin and race discrimination, and retaliation against Latino workers at one of its Mississippi plants. Labor activists say it’s the latest raid to target factories where immigrant workers have organized unions, fought back against discrimination or challenged unsafe and unsanitary conditions.

Hold on.


Anyway, so to all the liberals asking why the owners/managers of the company weren't the ones arrested for hiring the undocumented migrants, you can print out a substantial stack of this article and just beat them over the head with it. Then remind them that migrants need jobs too, although better ones than this, obviously, and the owners should really be arrested for rank worker abuse.

Anyway I hate this fucking country.
