THE RESPECTABILITY TEST | 2004-11-20
The Zundel case is the perfect test of respectability. Where are the Libertarians who demand "freedom of speech" and "open borders" when someone is arrested in the U.S. for an immigration technicality, given no trial, and shipped to Canada to be locked in solitary when he has NO criminal record?
Where are the "limited government" conservatives? Have you even heard a word of this on American TV or radio? A respectable conservative wouldn't be caught dead on this one.
Jesus talked about visiting prisoners, and he meant those put in prison for standing up for what was right. Where are the preachers on this one? Too busy promoting third world adoption and interracial marriage? Where do they find that in the Bible?
