Paul Manafort’s prison sentences is so scary that even AOC is tweeting her opposition


We now live in an inexorably political nation, in which every move we make is examined under the lens of democrat or republican.

We have long been warned about this sort of division, by those great Americans who came before us.  United we stand, divided we fall.  One nation, under God.

Still, we have allowed the infotainment industry to anger us to the point of near-Civil War yet again, all for them to line their pockets with the advertiser cash as we find ourselves unable to turn away.

This prevailing polarization also tends to taint the way we treat one another in the real world as well, as former Trump adviser Paul Manafort recently learned.

Having been booked for crimes related to Robert Mueller’s lengthy “RussiaGate” investigation, Manafort is now headed to prison, but where he is being incarcerated is turning heads.

Fox News reported earlier this week that Paul Manafort, who served as President Trump’s campaign chairman, is being transferred from a federal prison to New York City’s Rikers Island, notorious for gang violence and housing some of the most infamous violent offenders. A state judge ordered the transfer at the request of New York City District Attorney Cy Vance, Jr., who is pursuing a case against Manafort involving alleged residential mortgage fraud, falsified business records and more.

The move is seen as a purely political one, likely meant to send a message to the President as obstinate democrats continue their campaign toward impeachment.

But not everyone on the left believes this is fair for Manafort.

Even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., whose district includes Rikers, blasted the idea of keeping Manafort in solitary, as was reported.

“A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and human rights violations. That‘s what solitary confinement is,” Ocasio Cortez tweeted Wednesday. “Manafort should be released, along with all people being held in solitary.”

Rikers is known for its barbarism – a fact that doesn’t seem to align with Manafort’s crimes whatsoever.
