Matt Taibbi: Democrats Have Abandoned Civil Liberties

by | May 16, 2020

I know. It’s hard to believe the guys who hired the Delta Force to burn the Branch Davidians to death, banned AR-15s, voted for the PATRIOT Act, colluded with Bush on spying and torture and war, let Obama get away with deliberately murdering American citizens and launching wars without any sort of authorization at all would finally give up the pretense that they care about civil liberties just because of partisanship against Trump, but here we are.

(And hard disagree about Obama using FISA against Israeli agents in the U.S.. If it has a legitimate use, that’s it.)
