I usually tend to shy-away from “opinion pieces” simply because they’re a reflection of someone else’s judgment and not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

However conservative radio talk show host, best selling author, and political opinion writer Dennis Prager, makes a compelling fact-based argument of just how mean-spirited and vindictive progressives can be.

In an op-ed article appearing in Townhall the congenial 70-year old political pundit and founder of “PragerU´a non-profit organization that creates a variety of educational videos on politics, the economy regarding general conservative principles and values.

Prager’s piece titled “Reflections on the Torture of Paul Manafort” details how the sadistic treatment of Paul Manafort illustrates what he witnessed as a graduate student in the 1970’s concerning the behavior then of left-wing students.

The conservative host uses the term “Leftism” in distinguishing the differences between conservative and liberal, in that neither of the two ideologies “makes people kinder or meaner.”

However, Prager contends that this brand of liberalism is more toxic and “makes people meaner, even crueler.”

Prager cites the transfer of Manafort as an example of “Leftism” forcing the one-time Trump campaign manager from a minimum security facility in Pennsylvania to a maximum security hellhole known as New York’s Rikers Island, defined as a “wretched place” by Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.

The esteemed liberal law scholar writes, “The decision to move Paul Manafort … from the decent federal prison to which he was sentenced to solitary confinement to the dangerous hell hole that is New York City’s Rikers Island seems abusive and possibly illegal.”

Adding, “I know Rikers well having spent time there visiting numerous defendants accused of murder and other violent crimes. It is a terrible place that no one should ever be sent to.”

Dershowitz goes on to explain that Manafort will be confined to solitary confinement, “for his own safety,” because Rikers houses the worst of the worst mass murders, rapists and terrorist as neighbors.

So why would the 70-year old former Trump campaign manager, found quality of committing white-collar crimes, be subjected to solitary confinement for 7-years, the entire length of his conviction?

The answer may lie on how deranged the left has become since the election of Donald Trump, unable to convict the President of collusion or obstruction as they would’ve liked, the only other option afforded to them is revenge, and the only target available is Paul Manafort.

Angry over the outcome of the Mueller Report, and worried that  Manafort might be pardoned by President Trump, the Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, decided to extract an additional pound of flesh by charging Manafort with additional crimes in New York State, thus guaranteeing the President cannot pardon Manafort of a “state crime.”

Moreover extraditing Manafort from a minimum security facility to Rikers Island, long before any trial date is considered, as additional punishment.

To her credit, even Socialist/Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and human rights violations. That’s what solitary confinement is. Manafort should be released, along with all people being held in solitary.”

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik wrote when Manafort was placed in solitary, that such harsh treatment is “basically a deathtrap.”

Robert Mueller along with Judge Amy Berman Jackson sought it for the same political reason Vance has, to break the man, simply because he had a brief association with the President. If Manafort is released from solitary confinement in Rikers, and put into the general population, he’s as good as dead.

    This Sounds like prosecutor misconduct!
    How can the prosecutor think that he is right in his action, and what is Mr. Manafort’s attorney doing about this abuse of power!! Or has Mr. Manafort run out money?
