Nothing in the United States of today is just like slavery
The 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation has become the standard race baiting talking point for lefty articles suggesting that absolutely nothing had changed since the days of human slavery,
The anniversary had been name checked in articles advocating Medicaid expansion, an end to white privilege and the Bill de Blasio inauguration. It may be time to give it a rest.
The failure to expand Medicaid is not just like slavery.
Rich people not paying the amount of taxes that you think they should to subsidize universal preschool is not just like slavery,
People criticizing Obama is not just like slavery.
Nothing in the United States of today is just like slavery except perhaps the progressive presumption that the rights, properties and bodies of the entire country is theirs to do with as they please.
