"The silence of the liberals, both in Congress and the media, in the face of the Obama administration’s assault on civil liberties in wartime is a disgrace. They have made their pact with the Devil in order to achieve what they regard as much more important gains: they are ready to sacrifice their (always conditional) devotion to civil liberties in order to achieve 'economic equality,' i.e., preserve our faltering and near-bankrupt welfare state. If they have to endorse -- or simply not protest -- the depredations of the Warfare State in order to accomplish this, well then so be it." (06/01/11)
