Let’s see if you have the same reaction as I did to this section of President Obama’s speech on drones today:
We will never erase the evil that lies in the hearts of some human beings, nor stamp out every danger to our open society. What we can do – what we must do – is dismantle networks that pose a direct danger, and make it less likely for new groups to gain a foothold, all while maintaining the freedoms and ideals that we defend.
My reaction: Seems to me that the main network he wants to dismantle is Fox News, and the main groups he wants to prevent from gaining a foothold are Tea Party groups. As for whose heart holds these particular evils, what exactly what “ideals” they aim to defend, well I’ll leave that to you to determine.
