Dear Ivanka


Dear Ivanka,

I read your tweet this evening, August 4th (a special day for me) concerning your desire to destroy white nationalist terrorism.

And I thought: well, you must be aware that your father is a great supporter of white nationalist terror — I mean, just look at his immigration policies; for god’s sake, ICE is a white nationalist terror operation. And, as an educated woman, you must be aware that the goal of white nationalists is genocide — the removal of all non-white non-Christians from the USA. They’re direct and straightforward about this, something which you must find deeply upsetting, especially since your husband and children would be targeted for deportation or murder once the Nazis have their way. As such, I thought I would let you know, from one famous Usonian woman to another, that 127 years ago today I murdered my father and stepmother with a hatchet. And I was acquitted. Can you believe it? And you know what? I’ve never once regretted it. On the contrary, I’ve felt nothing but relief. Though, to be frank, if I had to do it again I might use poison.

Be strong,

Lizzie Borden
