“The Democrats criticized Bush for suspension of civil liberties and guaranteed them in their 2008 platform. In their 2012 platform, those guarantees have all been erased.”
I don’t really recommend the EFF/Al-Jazeera article – the author seems to think that suggesting that black people are too incompetent to get picture ID is somehow a blow struck for civil rights – but the general theme is pretty clear. It turns out that liberals are actually, shock, happy to use the power of the State to enforce social and domestic policy! Which is great when a libertarian agrees with that policy; when they don’t? …Not so much.
As I said, almost funny. The joke kind of loses something after the sixtieth or so time you see somebody fall for it.
