Democrats in Berets

In conversations with a gatekeeper of Peace and Freedom Party of California recently, I was surprised to encounter a laissez-faire attitude toward indentured servitude, even slavery. We were talking about the proper political response to women and children trafficked online for sexual exploitation, aka prostitution, and his curious response was that Internet marketing of these unfortunates was somehow akin to public roadways being used for transporting controlled substances. Inappropriate metaphors aside, the casual dismissal of one of the worst human rights abuses on the planet by an official of California’s Feminist Socialist Political Party makes me wonder what he would take a principled stand on.

I mean, if this is the position of socialists, they might as well be Democrats.
