    Yes everyone was falling all over themselves to appear tough on crime.

    It’s sort of like how for abortion everyone has to act like they’re vehemently opposed to abortions at 9 months because that’s what the voters care about or how they are always forced to say that they’re opposed vehemently to illegal immigration when discussing the legal immigration system. The public demands that politicians check certain boxes regardless of whether they are good policy or not.

    It started 100 years before that, the 13th amendment allows for prisoners to be used as involuntary labor.

    I think a lot of that was just politicking, when you have a bill that's overwhelmingly popular, then everyone wants to prove that they're even more supportive than the next guy.

    Yes that was a nice little concession given to Southern States so they could keep de facto slavery.

    That was a concession given to the govt. by the govt for its own ends. Slavery is essentially the private ownership of a human, when the government does it, it's called CONSCRIPTION!

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    As today’s rally underscores, a growing number of Republicans and their media allies have downplayed the riot. Some have begun to treat it as a heroic act.

    Trump claimed that the rioters presented “zero threat” and were “hugging and kissing the police and the guards.” He released a statement yesterday saying, “Our hearts and minds are with the people being persecuted so unfairly relating to the January 6th protest concerning the Rigged Presidential Election.”

    Representative Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina cast those arrested after the riot as “political prisoners” and suggested he wanted to “try and bust them out.”

    Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin described the attackers as “people that love this country, that truly respect law enforcement.”

    Senate Republicans blocked Congress from creating an independent commission to investigate the attack. Senator Mitch McConnell called it a partisan effort “to debate things that occurred in the past.”

    Tucker Carlson of Fox News described the death of Ashli Babbitt — whom a police officer fatally shot as she tried to force her way through a barricade protecting members of Congress — as an execution, and asked whether federal officials are “now allowed to kill unarmed women who protest the regime.”

    J.D. Vance, a best-selling author and Republican Senate candidate in Ohio, said that there were “some bad apples” but that “most of the people there were actually super peaceful.”

    Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said on the House floor, “The people who breached the Capitol on Jan. 6 are being abused.”

    Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona accused law enforcement of “harassing peaceful patriots” and “law-abiding U.S. citizens.”

    Representative Jody Hice of Georgia said, “It was Trump supporters who lost their lives that day, not Trump supporters who were taking the lives of others.”

    Laura Ingraham claimed on Fox News that many other protests last year “were far worse than this.”

    Carlson, Greene and Candace Owens, a conservative commentator, have all suggested that the F.B.I. or Justice Department was behind the riot.

    Julie Kelly of the journal American Greatness suggested Michael Fanone — a Washington police officer who suffered a heart attack and a brain injury during the attack — was lying about it, and called him a “crisis actor.”

    Joe Kent — a Washington State Republican running with Trump’s endorsement against one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump over Jan. 6 — plans to attend today’s rally.

    I do love hearing the strict constitutionalists make excuses for stuff like this.
