Iowans Against the Death Penalty

A week ago the local liberal NPR affiliate WOI 640 Am was helping the liberal group Iowans Against the Death Penalty celebrate their 50th anniversary. In 1962 IADP worked with then Governor Harold Hughes to keep convicted murderers alive.

I was thinking at the time, “Oh how altruistic of them…”. I disagreed, but I figured to each their own.

Then I realized, these are the same people who work in other groups, and by who they vote for, to actively ensure the killing of unborn babies. Because the liberal world view is not based in logic, they have no problem with the seeming contradiction: working tirelessly to keep convicted murderers alive,  while working tirelessly to kill the innocent unborn.

Reading their website, you see the usual cross-pollination between liberal groups, in this case strong ties to the Iowa Civil Liberties Union. It is quite ironic whenever you see these people on TV, or hear them on radio, to feel the self-righteousness emanate forth from their being, and then to realize they are totally screwed up individuals.

One Response to Iowans Against the Death Penalty

  1. “No one understood better than Stalin that the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance.”
    — Alan Bullock

    “Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can
    arrest the present tendency toward statism… A really efficient totalitarian
    state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and
    their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be
    coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task
    assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda,
    newspaper editors and schoolteachers.”

    “Neither current events nor history show that the majority rule, or ever did rule.”
