Fresh take on “convicted felon” branding…..(thanks to Nellie Bowles, paraphrased from The Free Press)

Alex Soros, heir to the Soros empire, reportedly funneled money through shell nonprofits to get Alvin Bragg elected to the NY prosecutor position. Alex is so proud of the job they are doing together that he’s bragging about it. But also, it’s funny because Soros’s Open Society Foundation wants employers and citizens talking about felons who want jobs in a generally favorable and non-judgmental way and the number one rule: “1. Refrain from inquiring about an individual’s conviction history until after extending a conditional offer of employment.” Which is it, guys? Felonies are to be viewed as a hindrance to employability, job worthiness, and reputation or not?

Newly “convicted felon”Trump raised $53 million plus off of the Bragg team conviction, so maybe the phrase “convicted felon” really HAS been destigmatized in American society, thanks to the Soros family’s Open Society Foundation’s hard work.

Also, in the news….again.
From Matt Taibbi, quoted in The Free Press

….old news from the AP: “Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee have agreed to pay $113,000 to settle a Federal Election Commission investigation into whether they violated campaign finance law by misreporting spending on research that eventually became the infamous Steele dossier.” Misreporting spending. On something meant to sway the election. Interesting.”

Isn’t that exactly what NY based its conviction of Trump on? Uh, yes.

Ahhhhh, such is the hypocrisy at work in the heart of American jurisprudence….. “But that’s just NY being NY,”one says. The rest of us can all be sure of our constitutional rights being protected under the authority of such a blind institution as the US government has become, right?
