Robert Scheer: Glenn Beck Gets It Right - Robert Scheer's Columns - Truthdig

Tom Usher wrote or added | Yesterday, I mentioned that Glenn Beck is opposed to providing basic rights against torture. However, as Robert Scheer makes clear, Beck actually looks good relative to Sen. Joe Lieberman.

"I think it's time for us to look at whether we want to amend that law to apply it to American citizens who choose to become affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations, whether they should not also be deprived automatically of their citizenship, and therefore be deprived of rights that come with that citizenship when they are apprehended and charged with a terrorist act."

That's pure fascism. Lieberman is a dyed-in-the-wool Likudnik Zionist. He puts Israel and his Jewish kind above all other considerations to their own detriment. It's not love.

Scheer says, "Fortunately, we now have a president and an attorney general who embrace that indelible wisdom in defense of due process at home as well. It is a very good thing that Lieberman is not a heartbeat away from ruling—and ruining—us all."
