Corporations -- The New Super-Race
Just the other day THIRTY republicans voted in the U.S. Senate to deny justice to a human victim of rape in order to protect the so-called sovereign rights of corporations.
That right! To them, protecting the corporation is more important than protecting a PERSON that works for the corporation.
"A woman is gang-raped by her fellow employees at government contractor KBR. The company says her contract prohibits her from seeking justice in court."
"Thirty Republican U.S. senators voted to safeguard corporations from lawsuits in rape cases."
This is taking things even a step further than treating corporations as people, which is questionable itself. There was never a Supreme Court ruling on this matter. If was just mentioned in a headnote of an obscure 1886 ruling.
This is just more evidence that the republican party is becoming the party of the corporations, not of the people.
Corporations are the republican gods.
