Seek respect, not attention. It lasts longer. ― Ziad K. Abdelnour
Today’s quick hits deal with these important subjects:
- Border Patrol & Facebook
- England vs United States
- Heidi Heitkamp
Border Patrol & Facebook:
The first thing I thought of when I heard that ProPublica had uncovered a secret Facebook group made up of roughly 9,500 current and former Border Patrol agents was that the agents participating in the group must be morons to think they would not get caught.
Members of a secret Facebook group for current and former Border Patrol agents joked about the deaths of migrants, discussed throwing burritos at Latino members of Congress visiting a detention facility in Texas on Monday and posted a vulgar illustration depicting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez engaged in oral sex with a detained migrant, according to screenshots of their postings.
Some of the photo illustrations posted on the group’s page were disgusting and graphic:
Another is a photo illustration of a smiling President Donald Trump forcing Ocasio-Cortez’s head toward his crotch. The agent who posted the image commented: “That’s right bitches. The masses have spoken and today democracy won.
If any of the agents who posted derogatory comments on the page can be identified they should be terminated.
Face it; we have a leader in Trump who does not respect women. It seems these agents are following their leader who we know participates in “locker room talk” often.
England vs United States:
Today (Tuesday) is the semifinal match between England and the United States in the 2019 FIFA World Cup. It starts at 1:00 pm Montana time and will be televised on Fox.
The other semifinal match is between the Netherlands and Sweden on Wednesday.
The championship is July 7.
The Montana Democratic Party announced that Heidi Heitkamp, a former U.S. Senator from North Dakota, will be the keynote speaker at the Montana Democratic Party’s 2019 Officers Convention in Helena on Saturday, July 13.
Heitkamp was an interesting selection. I imagine most other Democrats are busy running for President and not available.
