This is the FBI report on Human Trafficking for 2017. Read it and decide for yourself which DEFCON setting we should be at. Is trafficking horrible? Of course. Does trafficking exist? Yes, in many different sectors of the workforce. Does the level of sex trafficking merit the extremes “anti-trafficking” and “rescue” groups, using false and debunked statistics to convince politicians and the general public, have taken? Or are the millions of dollars of government grants and private donations, none of which find their way to actual victims, the motivation? Could it be that these groups want to be as much an opponent of an individual’s right to body autonomy as anti-abortion advocates? Will Swanee Hunt, Kamala Harris, Julie Bindel, Rachel Moran, Mike Pence, and the Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee legislatures break bread to celebrate their alliance? Betcha they’ll be pouring red, but you read and decide. Thanks.
