Quote of the day—Alan Gottlieb

Mayor Emanuel, like his former boss in the White House, doesn’t have a plan that works. Since he seems unwilling to follow the court’s wishes, and appears unable to lead his city out of despair, perhaps he should just get out of the way and give his citizens a level playing field against violent criminals.

CHICAGO MAYOR SHOULD SHARE BLAME FOR MAYHEM, SAYS CCRKBA
[I take a minor exception to the word “give.” I think it should have been “let.”

And if I were to have my way I would go further than Gottlieb and demand Mayor Emanuel be prosecuted under 18 USC 242. But I’m an extremist who believes those who violate rights protected by the Bill of Rights should be punished.—Joe]

  1. “But I’m an extremist who believes those who violate rights protected by the Bill of Rights should be punished.”

    What’s extreme about that? Sounds like good common sense to me.

  2. You are a moderate. I think they should be “perished” (leaving aside the grammar issues of substituting that word).

  3. In a just society Mayor E. would be in jail right now, or hanging from a tree. Then again; in a just society we’d never have gotten to this point.

  4. It’s extreme because no politician in a position of power to do such a thing in pursuing such a goal.

    Extremes are determined by how far something is from the norm. Not by what is correct.
