Charlie Kirk Compares Legal Weed To Slavery

Charlie Kirk is a moron even by moron standards. But here’s the deal with this: Nowadays, it is fashionable to portray the “war on drugs” as a racist crusade against oppressed minorities, but that’s not how it was regarded back in the day. There were plenty of liberals, Democrats, blacks, civil rights leaders, etc who were just as zealous for the drug war as the Reaganites. I used to hear black clerics compare the drug trade to slavery. Yes, there were fringe countercultural left Abbie Hoffman types that criticized the drug war, but that was hardly the norm. The problem with progressives is they want to have their regulatory, therapeutic mass democracy without any of the consequences.
