Liberals In Heaven

I'm with Ross on the Conrad Black case. Even leaving aside the prosecution's Frankenstein's monster of a case, the outbreak of Tourettes this verdict has induced in the MSM speaks well of Black.

Winner of 'Best in Show' is undoubtedly the Telegraph, with its jovial allusions to prison rape. All this talk of 'arrogance' and the like just emphasises how weak the substance of the case actually was. Reading through this thread at the animal house, It seems that the main charges are that Black was right-wing, rich and married to Barbara Amiel.

Come to think of it, a man from Mars reading that thread would have trouble telling who was actually convicted, Black or his missus. According to the right-on comrades, Amiel is a 'harridan', 'Lady Macbeth' and 'Amielda Marcos'. I haven't seen such an outpouring of misogynistic lunacy since, well, the last time Liberals ran into a smart, right-wing woman. On the other hand, our progressive friends do show exceptional restraint - for them - in taking until the fourth comment for any allusion to the other reason Amiel will never get invited to speak at a British uni.

All of which is by way of saying that this is further proof for my theory that if you want to know the true nature of Liberals, watch what they do when they think they have the upper hand. It's not just the way PC falls by the wayside once a Designated Victim leaves the collective. Liberals have spent years slobbering over the piercing social insights of all manner of scumbags. Hell, kill enough people and you can even get published by the Guardian. But now they've nailed a right-winger on a charge no one can explain in less than 100 words, they've got their Judge Dredd on ?

Ditto, you'd think people that profess to lie awake at night worrying about civil liberties would be a little more cautious about the idea of the state trawling through private contracts years after the fact, claiming to detect frauds that raised not an eyebrow at the time.

At the end of the day, it's all tactical. Liberalism, being an essentially nihilistic creed, everything is expendable for the greater good of beating the right. Don't look for coherency: Black was a rightist, that's all you need to know.
