The DEA’s Schedule is Nixon’s Schedule

The DEA schedule of narcotics — in which cannabis is classifed alongside heroin — was a product of the Nixon era, when the modern War On Drugs started cranking up. Tricky Dick himself, on a leaked White House tape, was said to have called marijuana “…the drug of choice of Mexicans, hippies and niggers.”

Here’s former White House Domestic Affairs Advisor, the notorious John Ehrlichman, with a slightly more nuanced framing of this policy in a 1994 interview:

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
–John Ehrlichman, Nixon Domestic Affairs Advisor, 1994

The DEA schedule is Nixon’s schedule, part of a policy born out of deception and racism. It’s time to DEschedule cannabis.

We’ll be at the White House on May 20, how about yourself?

“Progressive” Sanders Loves Him Some Drones

I was just checking out this short article in The Hill today about Pwogwessive hero Bernie Sanders and his declaration that he wouldn’t end the US drone warfare program. Can somebody please tell me again why I should so much as lift a finger to support this brazen hypocrite? Check this out:

“I think we have to use drones very, very selectively and effectively. That has not always been the case,” Sanders said.

No shit, Sherlock. Christ, is this clown really the Great Progressive Hope? Are you friggin’ kidding me, man?

“What you can argue is that there are times and places where drone attacks have been effective,” he added.

Oh, yeah, especially against weddings, funerals and schools. Now we know why Bernie doesn’t spend much time discussing foreign policy, and prefers to keep beating the shit out of that old economic inequality riff. If Pwogwessive America found out too much too soon, they’d bolt the Donkeycratic Party and run like the place was on fire.

Basically, what we’re got here is a warmed-over Obama, with the economic inequality rhetoric dialed up a notch or two for all the gullible bougie pwogwessives. Dude had to be dragged kicking and screaming into addressing the ongoing police reign of terror against Black America, and he’d probably still be ignoring the issue if #BlackLivesMatter hadn’t publicly gotten all up in his shit about it.

This doorknob needs to stop referring to his sheepdog campaign as a goddamn’ “revolution”. It’s really offensive.
