Left Coast Libtalker Claims US Prisoners Are Mostly Political
Libtalker: America Worse On Human Rights Than China
Hu knew we all have it backwards: that America's the world's most notorious human rights abuser, not China?
Yes, harvesting organs from dissenters for fun and profit is nothing compared to incarcerating poor, defenseless gangbangers and drug dealers. Did you know they are actually political prisoners?
For your daily dose of Portland-style kookdom, we present deranged libtalker Thom Hartmann in a particularly dubious moment.
Listen as guest Victoria Jones of the Talk Radio News Service is not quite sure how to respond:
THOM HARTMANN (47:39): How do we, as the nation with more people in prison than any other nation in the world, including China, which has three times the population, lecture them on human rights?
I realize they've got a bunch of political prisoners in jail, but I would argue that, and I think some would argue that, many of the people in prison in the United States are arguably political prisoners, people who are there for minor drug violations that are the consequence of living in poverty where the only way you can make a living is by being an entrepreneur in the drug world.
Hu can rest easy knowing America's the REAL evil empire! Thanks for straightening that out, Thom.
