It’s said that when Napoleon first broached the idea of establishing a penal colony on Devil’s Island, far away from France, he was asked, “Who will watch over these terrible criminals?”

He replied, “Worse criminals.”

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

This is just the way it’s done in a shithole country.

Let’s be clear here, there is no such thing as consensual sex–Consensual anything, in these concentration camps. The ones wearing the uniform have all the power to do as they please to ANYONE being held, any age, any sex. On one hand, it’s terrorism and on the other, a matter of survival no different than what occurred in the Death Camps run by the Nazi’s. Prisoners were used sexually, slave labor to bury comrades/friends/ family, removing bodes from the gas chambers, etc. Trading for sex to remain alive was the endall, beall and even that often failed as the guard became bored. So, what’s changed? What’s different? I guess this time the officers don’t speak German. This is all bad, horrible, but guess what? It’s not the worse. We just don’t know the worst that is on-going and is definitely going to get much, much worse.

Thanks Pelosi, and your posse sellouts on human rights, embracing Nazi Germany concentration camps coming to the USofA, and your criminal buddy Agent Orange. You must be so goddamn proud. Oh, a word of warning. taking on AOC and her allies will not end well for you, or the others.
