confinement with absolutely no access to social media.
Regular TV - no Netflix, no HBO, just the ABC, NBC, CBS and Public TV.

I've been there, though not in trumps term. The prisoners were very well treated.

I'd rather they get sent to some desert tent city in pink underwear and get fed maggot loafs like arpaio did to poc.

They are so batshit they are dangerous. Our prison system is just going to radicalize them more because it sucks. I wish they could go into a rehabilitation facility and get deprogrammed, but "deprogramming" is a fine line we may not want to cross. Ironic since many of them are okay with "deprogramming" gays with their conversion therapy bullshit.

Behaviors that we criticized when Republicans were doing it? We are not like them!

Just follow the rule of law and get every one of those terrorist tried, convicted and sentenced to a federal prison.

Even if they end up in gitmo. These are domestic terrorists, not people from foreign countries. As the terrorists that they are, they should be banished from US soil, at least on the mainland. Sending them there makes them inaccessible to their minions who are obviously a problem. I think it's the best place for them.

We've sentenced the worst of the worst to federal prisons both foreign and domestic villains. These simple minded idiots will not have unfettered access to anything not approved by their jailers.

We don't need to hide anyone at gitmo as if we've done something wrong that cannot withstand public scrutiny.

If it is, hell, let's get right on top of that. These fuckers don't deserve to breathe air so putting them on an island in a remote, very secure compound where the zombies can't get to them is a great start. It's not hiding them away, it's putting them in a place where we, the traumatized, can feel secure that they are in a place that's truly isolated and inescapable, PTSD sufferers would agree.

My primary inspiration for this is from Robert Lewis Stevenson's Man Without A Country. Gitmo would finally have a legitimate reason to exist. After all we've paid for it, might as well put it to good use for once. Fuck those traitors, karma's not always kind.
