We are not going to weigh in on the Oregon situation right now. There are more important things going on in the world. However we will note when an avowed lefty calls his brethren out for their rush to embrace the police state. We are thankful for the dissent.
Ralph Nader, Lawrence Lessig, Glenn Greenwald (and there are others) are liberals who have held to their principals in the face of the great “progressive” lockstep of the last few years. It takes guts to speak out when so many of your traditional compadres don’t have the same guts.
