No To Fascists = No To Gonzales
In the real world, a no vote on the nomination of Alberto "Torture treaty doesn't bar `cruel, inhuman' tactics" Gonzales would be obvious. Unfortunately, our country is run by men and women whose moral compass is, shall we say, somewhat skewed.
A friend of mine the other night said to me:
If we were having dinner in Munich in 1934 and I said, Hitler will kill all the Jews, everyone would've said I was crazy and over the top.
An unprovoked unjust war in Iraq, a U.S. citizen held indefinitely without trial and the implementation of an immoral torture policy, demeans our values and leads us down a path that leads to despotism.
If you believe that last sentence to be over-the-top, please imagine yourself at that dinner party in 1934.
Alberto, the mastermind of the Bush torture policy which made Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib possible, would have made a very good Nazi.
Armando at the Daily Kos has put out the word, every U.S. senator should vote no on the Gonzales nomination for Attorney General.
