In 1865, Republicans proudly passed the Thirteenth Amendment to prohibit slavery (except as punishment for crime pursuant to due process; i.e., sentenced to “hard labor”).
But then Nixon and Reagan developed their racist “Southern Strategy,” took racism away from the Democrats (whose northern wing had become PROgressive), the former racist Southern Democrats all became RepubliCONs, so now those who like to fly the KKKONfederate flag of slavery, treason and total surrender, also want to violate the Thirteenth Amendment and force workers to work without pay.
Of course, this is how Trump has always run his businesses. Shut them down. Don’t pay workers or contractors. Total destruction and then leave someone else holding the bag.
