Happy 50th anniversary of the BPP, everyone. This is relevant because, as we all should know, the war on drugs was initiated in order to more easily charge blacks and leftists.

I mean, that is what one of Nixon's top men said about it:

 

 

“You want to know what this was really all about,” Ehrlichman, who died in 1999, said in the interview after Baum asked him about Nixon’s harsh anti-drug policies.

“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,” Ehrlichman continued.

“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.”

His colleagues have since suggested that he was just joking.  That quote doesn't make him look like he was joking, though, does it?

I wanted to post this in the Loophole thread, but decided it was too much drift.  I'll just put it here because I don't want to think too hard on that detail.   You can read and watch and tell me where to put it.

Just listened to that Fascinating video.

You know, Mycotopia is becoming a massive repository of knowledge that these people in power don't want us to know... I get that same "vague" feeling of fear Dr. Leary mentioned sometimes...

I just got done watching the series"Stranger Things"... yeah, that will make you think.
