That’s right, I said it. AP asks a most ridiculous question:Likely not until they're in a
Given the insanity of the past two weeks, replete with the White House nudging Google to pull the video off of YouTube and the State Department running ads on Pakistani TV to apologize for a movie they had nothing to do with, I can’t quite believe the DOJ would risk the perception that they’re punishing this guy for a thoughtcrime unless something serious was involved. There has to be a real crime underlying this. Right?Man, you gotta be kidding. Why would the wholly-corrupt Ministry of Justice care what anybody thinks about their lawless actions? Who’s gonna stop ‘em? What’s anybody gonna do about it? What’s happened to them in response to the other examples of their flagrant and obvious disregard for the rule of law under Obama the Great (Fast and Furious, NBP voter intimidation, refusal to enforce immigration law, et al)? What does this or any other out-of-control federal agency have to fear from a nation of benumbed and benighted ignoramuses, so deep in denial about the reality of their rogue government that they still can’t bestir themselves to even the slightest real concern over the direction in which we’re moving? What are we gonna do, baaaaa at ‘em with more vigor and tremolo?
I honestly don't know how to get the concept of thug mentality across to civilized people. It's one of those things that are 'lost in translation.' Let me quote the most relevant parts of Cold Fury's screed again:

That's the mentality. I've said it repeatedly, and I'll say it again: The rule of law is completely irrelevant to those running our country. The rules of civilization are completely irrelevant to those running our country. This pathetic reliance upon standards of decency, morality or legality brings to mind the old Robin Williams routine concerning unarmed cops in the UK: "STOP! Or I'll say 'stop' AGAIN!"
We're being ruled by thugs. A thug does what he wants, when he wants, and what do you think you're gonna do about it, bitch? A thug is only deterred by the credible threat or use of overwhelming force at the scene and moment of the crime. Nothing else works. The threat of eventual consequences is nothing to a person who can't see past the next couple of minutes.
If you're expecting this regime to abide by any sort of civilized behavior, or to 'play by the rules,' you are certifiably insane. And I mean that in the most literal sense.
God help us.
