Feint

Has Charles Johnson discovered his liberal side? In an off-the-cuff remark about an off-the-cuff remark (by a former top UK police chief), CJ drops this bombshell on his readers:

"...There are definitely civil liberties concerns in play; internment [ed: 'the imprisonment or confinement of people, commonly in large groups, without due process of law and a trial.'] is very serious stuff, and we should all be concerned when it’s mentioned by government officials..."


So Charles has civil liberties concerns, does he? That does stop him shilling for Guantanamo, secret CIA prisons and the practice of the US occupying forces in Iraq to detain large numbers of men (and previously women) for months on end without charge or trial.

Now why would CJ so blatantly contradict himself? Has he had a change of heart? No, it's fairly simple: he's preparing his lizardfolk for the next stage in anti-Muslim ideology. When a major attack happens, he can now advocate internment (say, of all males between 15 and 55) while pointing this this post as a kind of alibi that shows he takes 'civil liberties' very seriously.

Charles isn't really interested in freedom. He's interested in stoking the hate.

It makes one wonder what people like this intend to get out of it, except a reputation for cowardice
during interesting times.
