Moral Relativism: Never There When You Need It Most
If Scott Raeder, the apparent wackloon/fundi anti-abortionist alleged killer of late-term abortion-provider Dr. George Tiller, were named Ali Mustaffa, and his victim had been a Zionist rabbi, the threats he's uttering about there being more to come would be being taken much more seriously, I'll betcha.
I haven't figured out how to embed code for C&L vids. I wish I could. There's links 1`) here and 2) here. TPM ponders the very issue that led me to first speculate about the wider, politico-symbolic resonances embedded in his threats, noting the reticence of torture advocates to endorse such practices to potentially save lives.
