Will the mainstream media call the hit by christian fundamentalists today on an abortion doctor in Kansas what it is: domestic terrorism? Will there be questions about the propriety of waterboarding this guy? Will there be apologies for criticizing homeland security secretary Napolitano for her report or right wing radicalism? Will all of the doubt Dick Cheney tried to kick up recently apply if there is another Oklahoma City like event, or is “terrorism” just code for Islamic radicals and not Christian ones? What about declaring war on Venezuela now because we don’t like their leader and that country happens to be Christian, just like the terrorist here?
You know the answers to all of these questions, so, they are, of course, merely rhetorical, but they capture all of the lunacy of this decade in one discreet example.
