US whips em, whips em good

Scenes Sunday along the Rio Grande were sickening as horse-mounted Border Patrol agents attempted to whip migrants and used their animals to push them back toward Mexico. One agent is heard on video shouting an obscenity as a child jumps out of his horse’s path.
"Whip It" is a song by Devo from their third album Freedom of Choice (1980). The apparently nonsensical lyrics have a common theme revolving around the ability to deal with one's problems by "whipping it".
