In today's New Jersey Herald, Democrat candidates Matteson & Trish made one of their most foolish arguments to date, claiming that the Hank Williams Jr. band logo was the "most symbolic visual of slavery." Once again, these argumentative and nit-picky schoolmarms demonstrated their complete lack of understanding and common sense.
Are they really so dense that they do not understand that there are more people in slavery today than at any time in human history? According to the United Nations and other international agencies, there are upwards of 45 million or more people enslaved today across the world and millions within the United States.
Recently, the Democrats attended a campaign rally at which they displayed a banner with a symbol of that enslavement -- the Islamic crescent -- along with the wiccan symbol signifying the triumph of evil. Islamists continue to believe in the enslavement of non-Muslims and Islamic countries are among the biggest offenders at turning a blind-eye or even officially condoning slavery.
Legislators like Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblyman Parker Space are leading the fight against modern slavery. They have proposed the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Act (S-2928/ A-4503). Senator Oroho is considered a national leader -- up there with Ashton Kutcher -- in the fight against modern slavery.
The most "symbolic visual of slavery" today -- in 2017 -- is probably the flip-flops some appear to like so much, made with slave labor and sold with an enormous mark-up to willing American consumers. There are a host of products and services that Americans use that depend on enslaved victims. Then there is the sex trade -- including Internet porn -- that some Americans can't seem to live without. Look there for slavery today.
Again and again, Matteson and Trish have demonstrated their insensitivity to the real problems of today. They appear to live exclusively in the bubble of the one-percent and that is a big problem for average working people in Sussex, Warren, and Morris counties.
