My friends who are steadfast, mainstream libertarians have not had anything to say about someone or other shooting a fourteen-year old schoolgirl in the head. A group called “Taliban” claimed responsibility for this act of courage. “Taliban” means “student” (of Islam). A coincidence no doubt. Some of my mainstream libertarian friends will tell you with a straight face that a Lutheran could just have easily committed this atrocity.
Today, the main feast in the Muslim calendar, someone killed the faithful at the mosque during prayer in northern Afghanistan. The murderers must have been drawn from the 1/10 of 1% Christian minority in Afghanistan. Or, perhaps, they were another set of Lutheran assassin, foreigners. Damn Finns!
The producer of the infamous video insulting the prophet Mohammed is still in jail, as I write. He was put there for a federal judge for some sort of economic crime. I don’t know exactly what he did. I don’t doubt that he is a crook. Correct me if I am wrong but it seems to me we don’t ordinarily keep crooks in jail for weeks before trial. Am I missing something or are my suspicions well-founded. Do we now have political prisoners in this country?
