Jesse Ventura has a clear head on torture. And I thought Elisabeth Hasselbeck was a “Christian.” Isn’t a Christian someone who follows gentle Jesus, meek and mild—a man who was tortured? Wouldn’t Jesus regard the phrase “Christian torturer” to be an oxymoron? I think that we need a new denominational phrase for “Christians” like Elisabeth Hasselbeck: “Fox News Christians.”
I especially liked Ventura’s analogy of the North Vietnamese “Hanoi Hilton” to Rush Limbaugh’s “Club Gitmo.” It’s quite telling that Rush Limbaugh stumbled onto a nickname that parallels the nickname of the infamous Vietnamese torture location.
But remember, it’s only torture when somebody else does it. It’s “enhanced interrogation” and a vacation at a clubby resort when Americans do it.
God bless it, America!
