Michael Savage has for days railed against the Texas CPS, DPS, Texas Rangers, Midland County trampling of the Constitutional rights of the FLDS residents of the Yearning for Zion Ranch in El Dorado, Texas.
Dr. Rusty Shackleford of The Java Report was out in front on this one.
Now Vox Day has weighed in tellingly.
Not many other folks have even winked an eyebrow. For instance, lgf's legendary (and generally right-on-target) Charles Johnson -- despite a private email from me -- has completely frozen out this story, this, despite his uncanny ability to sniff out even the slightest whiff of Fascism across the pond.
Michelle Malkin.... not much.
Fox News: They have been rabidly pushing the "sex" side of the story (as Michael Savage has noted), rather than any sense of
Even the normally fiery Joseph Farah of WND fame has been rather tardy and somewhat less vocal than is his wont in his denunciation of the El Dorado "kid grab" farce -- but at LEAST he DID speak out.
Sean Hannity? Rush Limbaugh? As far as I can tell: Crickets on the trampling of the El Dorado FLDS folks' Constitutional rights.
The question is: Where are the vaunted media watchdogs for our Constitutional rights on this? Well they are parroting allegations and innuendo emanating from the Texas CPS, for one thing.
The Associated Press (Michael Savage, with reason, refers to them as the "Associated Pukes") sneers that the first day of hearings for child custody for the over 400 snatched children "descended into farce." (Translation: The children actually had legal counsel on hand to speak up for them. It was not the FLDS families' idea to bring 400-plus families to court at once!)
We are also treated with the information that this case will "test" the Texas Civil Justice System. (As if it is not already testing families whose children have been taken from them by the State of Texas under the flimsiest of pretexts!)
Michael Savage rightly likens the Texas State judge's decision to disperse the children to giving away cattle.
More to the point: Where are our elected and appointed public officials (each one of them sworn to uphold the Texas and or US Constitution) on this civil rights disaster? Governor Perry? Our Texas State legislators? The judge in the case is an absolute disgrace!
And where is the vaunted ACLU? Oh, that's right, the FLDS are not Muslims.
