Civil Rights are for the Civil

Old GlorySen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) has his priorities straight. After the arrest of the failed Times Square terrorist bomber, he said:

“If you’ve joined an enemy of the United States in attacking the United States and trying to kill Americans, I think you should sacrifice your rights of citizenship … It just seems to me if you’re attacking your fellow Americans in an act of war, you lose the rights that come with citizenship.”

Of course, leftists disagree with this. They think that terrorists who are citizens should retain their civil rights even though they’re terrorists. But what these moonbats aren’t considering is that affording terrorists civil rights might make it much more difficult to prove that they are terrorists in the first place, and therefore undeserving of those rights.  It’s a vicious circle, where the granting of civil rights makes it impossible to revoke those same rights. It’s much easier to strip those rights in the first place, and then justify that action later. And why not? Why would you want to coddle a terrorist?

Naturally, this has got the left in a froth. It’s just another example of how the left doesn’t want to protect America, by any means necessary. And doesn’t that make them a little less deserving of their civil rights? Just saying.
