Beto O'Rourke Wants Gov to Pay Reparations to Drug Dealers
"Never go full retard." Tropic Thunder
You only thought this was a radical primary until Beto O'Rourke decided he was going to save what was left of his career by out-lefting everybody. Gun confiscations? *^@# yes!
Forget freeing most criminals and letting them vote from prison, Bernie Sanders, or paying reparations for slavery, Elizabeth Warren.
Beto O'Rourke has a better idea. Let's pay reparations to criminals.
Hah. Top that Liz and Bernie.
Beto O’Rourke said Thursday that he wants the federal government to provide “Drug War Justice Grants” to people formerly incarcerated for nonviolent marijuana offenses.
But the issue has long been a cause of O’Rourke’s. As an El Paso councilman, he pressed in 2009 for a resolution encouraging the federal government to undertake an “open, honest, national dialogue on ending the prohibition of narcotics,” arguing that legalizing marijuana could stop drug trafficking at the U.S.-Mexico border. He co-wrote a book, "Dealing Death and Drugs: The Big Business of Dope in the U.S. and Mexico," in 2011.
I wonder why this 'cause' is so close to Beto's heart, brain and lungs.
Will drug dealers be eligible for these "justice grants"? It would be unfair to exclude these school playground entrepreneurs.
Your move, Bernie. How do you top this one?
Maybe pledge to name a drug dealer to the Supreme Court? Like illegal alien DREAMERS, they are the new oppressed minority.
