Get what you give

James Taranto on the Wright story:

Wright himself resurfaced last week, sitting for an interview with PBS’s Bill Moyers. It was an embarrassing softball affair in which Moyers at times was even less sensible than Wright. At one point Wright rightly observed that “we have the freedom here in this country” to denounce our government, “whereas [in] some other places, you’re dead if [you] say the wrong thing about your government.” To which Moyers replied, “Well, you can be almost crucified for saying what you’ve said here in this country.”

Which is true, if being “almost crucified” means being subjected to harsh criticism. By that definition, Wright has almost crucified America on many a Sunday.

I remember that program on US TV called ‘politically Incorrect’. I remember when they downplayed the importance to civil liberties the shootings at Ruby Ridge signified. After a discussion post 9/11, it was pulled. Maher was crucified for comments about US foreign policy IMO.

The only difference between Wright and Moyers is this:
Wright hates us because we are white.
Moyer hates us because we are Americans.
