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.
