hornberger asks a question i've been asking for years, and have yet to hear anyone answer it as if they meant what they were saying, or even knew about anything hornberger says;
One of the conservative movement’s favorite mantras is “With freedom
comes responsibility.” Given such, a question naturally arises: Why
won’t conservatives take responsibility for their actions and beliefs?
Consider the current brouhaha over the Central American citizens who
are trying to enter the United States to seek refugee status. They are
fleeing their countries in an attempt to save their lives from violence
Conservatives object to that. They feel that those people should be
forcibly returned to their countries of origin even if it means death
But here’s the thing: The violence and tyranny is in large part due
to the U.S. drug war and to U.S. foreign intervention in that part of
the world, both of which conservatives have long supported and still
No one can deny that the drug war has ravaged and destroyed Mexico
and Central America with drug gangs, drug cartels, massive violence, and
Also, no one can deny that U.S. interventionism in Latin America has
produced brutal rightwing tyrannical regimes with death squads that have
resulted in violent civil wars and insurgencies.
Have any conservatives taken responsibility for these two programs? I
don’t know of one who has. Moreover, the vast majority of conservatives
continue to support the drug war and foreign interventionism even while
decrying the massive exodus of people such programs are producing.
What’s up with that?...........https://www.fff.org/2018/11/29/why-wont-conservatives-take-responsibility/
