Hey folks, guess what’s back, eugenics! A Tennessee County has introduced a new “Get Out of Jail but Not Free” card in the form of a tempting new offer. It goes something like this; if you want to get out of prison early, all you have to do is get sterilized. That way, you don’t have kids and everyone’s happy.
Knowing what I know about ‘the state,’ this could possibly be a little probing of “America” to see if the ‘citiznes’ are ready to accept a return of eugenics, the sterlization of undesirables to enable a superior species to emerge.
The article in The Daily Sheeple has this line that goes to the heart of the matter, ” Although it may not be unconstitutional per se, as the government dictates what is or is not constitutional, it is an egregious violation of human rights; and one that would have made Adolf Hitler quite proud.”

That about sums it up for me as well. Well played, Tennessee, well played.

White County in rural Tennessee decided to start the program and it has faced backlash ever since.
The sterilization of inmates has been called into question by local district attorneys and the American Civil Liberties Union alike, not to mention rational Americans who understand human rights, CBS affiliate NewsChannel 5 reported.
“Offering a so-called ‘choice’ between jail time and coerced contraception or sterilization is unconstitutional,” the ACLU said in a statement. Although it may not be unconstitutional per se, as the government dictates what is or is not constitutional, it is an egregious violation of human rights; and one that would have made Adolf Hitler quite proud.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions judge signed this order and gave a poor excuse for its implementation. The order’s purpose was to discourage inmates with drug offenses and extensive criminal records from conceiving children that they cannot support, Judge Sam Benningfield said. “I hope to encourage them to take personal responsibility and give them a chance, when they do get out, to not to be burdened with children,” he told the station.
