Theater of the Absurd

"This episode is a neat little demonstration of just how topsy-turvy the moral universe of the Democratic party has become. What they are actually demanding, in the form of a 'no-buy' list of the sort proposed by Senator Chris Murphy in his filibuster last week is the abrogation of American citizens' Fifth Amendment rights in order to then strip them of their Second Amendment rights. Meanwhile, anyone who uses their First Amendment right to oppose this scheme is accused of wanting to sell guns to ISIS (as Murphy and Elizabeth Warren have both said). It would be difficult to think of a better demonstration of Democrats' wholehearted embrace of an ends-justify-the-means philosophy of governing." - Ian Tuttle
