It started in 2000 and continues today: Neocon hate squads now terrorize judges!
June 15, 2007 – Geneva (apj.us) – Like the fair judge he is, Judge Reggie Walton, the Scooter Libby trial judge, told the multiple felon, "Sorry – but go directly to jail and wait for your appeals verdict at Club Fed."
Well, not in such words, but most people in American know that Irve Lewis "Scooter" Libby is just another sophisticated District scumbag who made his reputation on the backs of tens of thousand of dead Americans and Iraqis before he got caught committing a felony and lying – just a few out the thousands of times he has lied before, to his family, to his friends, to the Congress – probably even to the President.
What is profoundly disturbing is that Judge Walton found it necessary, before he told Libby and his tragi-comic cast of high-ticket lawyers to take a hike, to state that he had been receiving fistfuls of hate mail – threats to himself and his family for finding Libby guilty even though the case against him was proved beyond a shadow of a doubt even to most Washington insiders before it came to trial – and that includes many Republican observers.
"Unfortunately, I received a number of angry and mean-spirited letters and phone calls… wishing bad things on me and my family," Judge Walton told the courtroom.
The mail to Judge Walton – and I am sure the telephone calls as well – are the product of the very same sort of Neocon hate squad that we witnessed play-acting their phony “surprise” that Bush lost the election for President in 2000.
The media loves this kind of stuff – and their coverage of these “innocent” neo-Nazis demonstrating all over Florida and the nation certainly helped Bush overcome his troubles and end up in the White House, elected by his Daddy’s hand-picked Supreme Court majority.
It you think political thuggery is dead in America, think again.
Neoconservative string-pullers and their army of loyal soldier toadies don’t hesitate for a fraction of a second when they are demonstrating to our children and people around the world how our “democracy” is now run by the lowest of the low: by threats, even threats directed toward a federal court judge who dared to act in the name of justice as opposed to doctrine.
And don’t be fooled by the media, who will most likely tell you that the loosely formed but highly trained Gestapo-like crew clandestinely run by people like Dick Cheney does not exist.
It exists – and if you think back on recent history, you will see that these gangsters have been at work several times since George W. Bush took office.
Politics is a rough game, but the law of the land is not something to be pummeled and flaunted as do these newest Republican operatives.
They are learning well from the Nazis – as did Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch, who sign the checks for FOX News Channel's start propagandists including but limited to Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly.
Just scream, wail, threaten, and ridicule.
In Dick Cheney's Amerika, that’s all it takes to win your point!
