If you want some perspective on the centrist-liberal capacity for normalizing heinous shit: I was reading books about the Guantanamo detention program when I was in middle school. It was a terrifying new thing then, and being informed about it was considered fringe. Everything I read turned out to be true or worse and absolutely nothing about it has changed in half of my life on this planet, through the Bush and Obama administrations. It's just a Thing We Do now, and has been for a long time. This is why we need to tear things like ICE down to the foundations, and ignore anyone who talks about incrementalist "reforms."
