Kevin Carson has some harsh words for Democrats lambasting Bush over the erosion of our civil liberties, in which he points out that many of the tools that the Bush administration is using were forged in Democrat administrations:
I’m really sick of the “left” wing of the neoliberal corporate establishment giving us a slightly kindler and gentler version of the same imperialism and police statism. As Chomsky wrote somewhere else, there was probably a “liberal” wing of the Nazi Party that only wanted to kill half the Jews.
I’m certainly sick of it too, but hypocritical objection is better than no objection at all.
