ACTION: Slavery Is Still Wrong In This, The Year Of Our Lord 2017

For those of you who didn't see my rage on FB, this is happening: "Immigrant advocates are launching a protest after Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson offered up inmates as builders of Donald Trump's wall on the US-Mexico border."

Local jackal Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson intends to start a "Project NICE" (National Inmates' Community Endeavors), with zero awareness of the fact that

WE HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE

I wonder if it's an "experimental program"? *

In nonfictional news, we have also seen the use of prisoners as slaves many times before.

But really, Project NICE? Really? Let alone shame, Sheriff, have you no fucking irony? WHY IS OUR CURRENT REALITY SO POORLY WRITTEN?

Don't read the comments on the article.

I'm going to the protest tomorrow. It starts at four. I intend to hold a sign that says NO SLAVES FOR THE TYRANT. I realize this is short notice, but if anybody from the Boston area who is free in the daytime wants to come, you're most welcome to ride with me. I'll need to leave Somerville at about 2:30 p.m. in order to be there at the start, so you have a little leisure to decide.

*One very small cool thing that came out of this: a whole gallery of character designs by one J.P. Cokes for That Hideous Strength. Enjoy, if that's the word I want.
