We as a nation need to totally eradicate the state of Maryland. They are a stain on our national consciousness that can only begin to be scrubbed away when they are a bare spot on our map. Why take such drastic action, you might ask? Why, because of their long tolerance of child abuse, of course.
Hear me out: Maryland was founded in 1632 by Lord Baltimore to be a refuge for Catholics -- yes, that same group of people whose priests have molested children for CENTURIES. So not only did Maryland tolerate child abuse -- it provided a refuge and hunting ground for abusers.
Need more evidence of why Maryland should be leveled into a parking lot for Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia? Recall that a good part of Maryland had strong secessionist feelings, pre-Civil War. Union troops heading to Washington through Baltimore were attacked, and four killed -- the first blood shed in that horrible war. Maryland did not abolish slavery until 1867 -- two years AFTER the end of that conflict. In other words, they continued to allow innocent men, women, and children to be treated like animals -- suffering death, rape, and abuse even after Blacks were freed elsewhere.
Now, I know there are many good people associated with the state of Maryland. We have many who are an integral part of BSD, for instance. Sorry, folks, you are contaminated, and need to suffer forever because of Maryland's tolerance of and (may I point this out?) cover-up of CENTURIES of child abuse -- actions that continue every day this abomination of a state exists.
WHY HASN'T MARYLAND DONE MORE?!?!?!
