Sullivan dug up a real winner the other day:
Waterboarding was sometimes used in the Deep South to torture African-Americans and to extract false confessions to alleged crimes. And when it emerged in an appeal as long ago as 1926, even the Mississippi Supreme Court ruled it categorically “a specie of torture well known to the bench and bar of the country,” and “barbarous.” They over-turned a guilty verdict for murder by an African-American man against a white man because such methods invalidated any notion of a reliable confession…
Now granted, Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Malkin were not around, so we cant tell for sure if this is just the ramblings of activist judges in Mississippi, but considering the era, we will assume that these were good Christian white men. Which, when you put it that way, puts those who currently advocate for torture on roughly the same moral plane as these folks:
Good company, hunh?
*** Obligatory TROLL PROTECTION ***
I am not saying those who advocate torture are racist like the Klan.
