A New Inquisition
Hanson on self-appointed censors.
Victor Davis Hanson: “We are in a new Inquisition. Self-appointed censors try to stamp out any idea or word that they don’t wish to be aired – in the pursuit of a new race, class, gender and environment orthodoxy. … Unfortunately, the Obama administration has been part of the problem, not part of the solution. … All of that them/us rhetoric has given a top-down green light to radical thought police to harass anyone who is open-minded about man-caused global warming, or believes that gay marriage needs more debate, or that supporting Israel is a legitimate cause, or that breaking federal immigration law is still a crime and therefore ‘illegal.’ Our civil liberties will not be lost to crude fascists in jackboots. More likely, the death of free speech will be the work of the new medieval Torquemadas who claim they destroyed freedom of expression for the sake of ‘equality’ and ‘fairness’ and ‘saving the planet.’”
