Fox Host Says Dissenters Should Be Tased


Fox Host Says Dissenters Should Be Tased

Kilmead laments that people who confront politicians aren’t “beaten to a pulp,” as establishment continues to sell war on anyone who disagrees with authority

During a discussion about a Code Pink member heckling Hillary Clinton at a recent event, Fox News host Brian Kilmead said that people who confront politicians are “threatening” and should be Tased or “beaten to a pulp,” as the establishment media continues to sell the idea that anyone who disagrees with authority should be brutally punished.

A segment on the Fox and Friends morning show yesterday turned into an opportunity for Kilmead to share his dictatorial fetish that dissenters be dealt with in the proper manner, as footage aired of Clinton’s heckler being removed from the event by security.

“They should Tase this guy,” Kilmead says. “At one point with security so high and tensions on edge, don’t you think they’re going to get at the very least Tased or beaten to a pulp by somebody? These people look threatening.”

A number of other recent high profile public confrontations were reeled off, some of which involved We Are Change members, to paint a picture of a growing threat that needed to be quashed.

As the screams of tasered University of Florida student Andrew Meyer played in the background, the presenters seemed to react with glee, after which Kilmead concluded, “I would be for Tasing anyone in Code Pink,” adding “I’m pro-Pink Tasing.”

As we have reported in-depth, this is all part of an intimidation campaign to silence dissent as the apparatus of the police state turns against anyone who questions authority.

Since Tasing is all part of “pain compliance,” otherwise known as torture, why not go the whole hog and waterboard these potential terrorists? After all, if Ron Paul supporters are a terrorist threat, as CNN’s Glenn Beck has so enthusiastically pushed recently, then how far should we go to protect America?

If it was good enough for the Nazis to torture their political foes then it’s good enough for us, as Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz made clear last week.

“There are some who claim that torture is a nonissue because it never works — it only produces false information,” wrote Dershowitz in the Wall Street Journal. “This is simply not true, as evidenced by the many decent members of the French Resistance who, under Nazi torture, disclosed the locations of their closest friends and relatives.”

Wonderful – forget about those antiquated Geneva Conventions – let’s use what the Nazis did as a role model for how to conduct ourselves and see where it gets us.

Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer!

 



Alan Dershowitz argues we should torture because it was effective for the Nazis

Alan Dershowitz argues we should torture because it was effective for the Nazis

Here is a snippet from Mr. Dershowitz’s oped piece in the Wall Street Journal, November 7, 2007:

Although I am personally opposed to the use of torture, I have no doubt that any president–indeed any leader of a democratic nation–would in fact authorize some forms of torture against a captured terrorist if he believed that this was the only way of securing information necessary to prevent an imminent mass casualty attack. The only dispute is whether he would do so openly with accountability or secretly with deniability. The former seems more consistent with democratic theory, the latter with typical political hypocrisy.

Dershowitz calls for ‘accountable’ waterboarding, says torture ‘works sometimes’

Raw Story

Law professor Alan Dershowitz has become notorious since 2001 for his advocacy of legalizing torture and his insistence that it is fully constitutional as long as it is not used to compel self-incrimination. He has also been arguing since 2004 for a pre-emptive attack on IranLaw professor Alan Dershowitz has become notorious since 2001 for his advocacy of legalizing torture and his insistence that it is fully constitutional as long as it is not used to compel self-incrimination. He has also been arguing since 2004 for a pre-emptive attack on Iran

“I think the people in the United States want to see the Democrats be just as strong but smarter than the Republicans in fighting terrorism, fighting in Iran, fighting Iraq, fighting all the enemies of America,” Dershowitz said Thursday on MSNBC.

“If Democrats do that in order to win, they might be going against what they believe in,” responded MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski. “Perhaps what we really need to be doing is rebuilding our moral standing.”

“I agree,” said Dershowitz. “I think we should take a stand on waterboarding. We should say, never should it be permitted as a routine matter.”

He then cited the hypothetical “ticking bomb” situation, arguing that any leader would order torture under those circumstances, so “we’re just kidding ourselves by putting the issue underneath the table and coming up with extreme statements that we know we would never follow in practice.”

“If you torture, then what separates you from — the Nazis, or somebody else?” asked Brzezinski.

“Every government faced with a ticking bomb would, in fact, torture, and we would do it in order to get information to save lives,” Dershowitz answered. “The essence of a democracy, if you’re going to do something, you have to admit you’re doing it and you have to have control over it and you have to have restrictions on when it can be done. … If it’s going to be done in a democracy, then you have to make everybody accountable for it.”

“It’s been found that torture doesn’t cough up good information at all times,” Brzezinski pointed out.

“That’s just dead wrong,” Dershowitz stammered. “It works sometimes.”

Dershowitz concluded by insisting again that most world leaders would use torture to prevent another 9/11 but would do it “under the table and hide it. That is the worst response for a democracy. The best response is, if you’re going to do something that’s god-awful, like torture, at least acknowledge it.”
