Cognitive Dissonance du Jour

Question: Do cops regularly lie in order to make arrests?
Progressive Answer: “Of course they do, all the time. And they get away with it because the system is so corrupt.”

Question: Do prosecutors lie in order to get convictions?
Progressive Answer: “Oh, hell yes. And they get away with it because the system is so corrupt.”

Question: “Would the FBI lie in order to get a FISA warrant to spy on political opponents?”
Progressive Answer: “How dare you make such a treasonous suggestion! You’re a pawn of Vladimir Putin! Our law enforcement agencies deserve absolute loyalty!”

It cuts the other way, too. Lots of “conservatives” who have recently been critical of the FBI normally defer to law enforcement implicitly. The only “pure” people on this are the “True-Cons” like Bill Kristol and Ewen McMuffin who preach unquestioning loyalty to all elements of Government.

  1. You are going to find bad cops in all law enforcement.

    What happened in the FBI is somewhat like what happened in the movie Witness, but without the murder.

  2. And you’re also going to find courts which routinely rubberstamp warrants and assume the information they are given is correct, because the persons coming before them would never lie or withhold information.

    Funny that the agency which once routinely compiled ‘dossiers’ on everyday citizens became so pure and interested in solely preserving democracy during the course of a single year.

  5. The phone rings at FBI headquarters — “Hello?”

    “Hello, is this the FBI?”

    “Yes. What do you want?”

    “I’m calling to report my neighbor Tom. He is hiding marijuana in his firewood.”

    “Okay. This will be noted.”

    Next day, the FBI comes over to Tom’s house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept, break every piece of wood, find no marijuana, swear at Tom and leave.

    The phone rings at Tom’s house.

    “Hey, Tom! Did the FBI come?”

    “Yeah.”

    “Did they chop your firewood?”

    “Yeah, they did.”

    “Okay, now it’s your turn to call. I need my garden plowed.”

  8. I have been a bit baffled by the behavior of the “Hands up, Don’t shoot!” crowd… those with the “Question Authority”, “Arms are for Hugging”, and “Coexist” stickers.

    All of a sudden, their faith in those in authority (at least at the FBI) is boundless. It’s as if something has changed… what could it be?

    Given our “Three Felonies a Day” federal code, my trust in federal law enforcement (those that, for example, wouldn’t allow people to take pictures of Mt Rushmore from a state highway or sends a SWAT team to raid a guitar factory or collect a student loan… or burn down a building full of civilians or shoot a woman, holding her child, in the back of the head, or open up on a panicked woman with a kid in the car near the capitol) is a bit thin.

    I tend to give rank-and-file coppers the benefit of the doubt but they’re a long way from the political activist types at the highest levels of government.

    I guess the Dems, and Egg McMuffin, aren’t all that big on transparency when it suits them. On reading the memo, I saw nothing that could compromise any legitimate operation. So what are they hiding?
