thinking about how kamala harris, while the attorney general of california, argued against the supreme court order to relieve crowding in the state's prisons by releasing inmates on the grounds that their forced labour was too important for the state

'it's okay we're keeping these people in inhumane conditions because we're also enslaving them'

or her anti-truancy initiative which put parents into jail for their children not attending school ('oh so your kid doesn't want to go to school because they're getting bullied for not being able to afford lunch? guess what'll really help'), or her fight to keep wrongfully convicted people in prison

objectively the difference between her and adolf eichmann is opportunity

anyway vote blue: 'we let girl bosses run concentration camps too'


thinking about how she argued in court against trans inmates getting gender-affirming surgery as CA AG

@esvrld I've had Californians explain the same thing to me really calmly, and then when I have a problem with it, I'm told I just don't understand California politics

@esvrld exact same argument was used by newsom to shoot down a state constitutional amendment that would have banned all involuntary servitude, including in prisons.
