Have you seen this? Dana Rohrabacher has just sent a reply a letter to the Huntington Beach Independent after they wrote a scathing editorial on his recent crazy behavior. Well, one would think that he actually thought about what they had to say to him. But alas, “Crazy Dana” would rather just dismiss this latest critique as “liberal left silliness”.
Here’s some of what he had to say.
Placing womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s underwear on the heads of alleged terrorists, among other interrogation techniques, is not torture, and permitting the liberal left in this country to claim that it is undermines our efforts in the war against terrorism.
During the hearings, the panties example was not the only tactic I pointed out where the FBI was pompously wrong. However, it was the most absurd and deserved to be mentioned to underscore the dramatic difference between real torture and mere humiliation.
My critics are the ones trying to ignore the gravity of the discussion taking place and continue to frame the issue as if the United States Ã¢â‚¬â€ not the captured terror suspects Ã¢â‚¬â€ were the criminal entity that desires to kill tens of thousands of innocent Americans.
Umm, no. With all due respect, Rohrabacher must not really know his Geneva Conventions. This kind of degrading treatment of prisoners is considered to be TORTURE. And last I checked, torture is illegal.
Shouldn’t Dana Rohrabacher know this? I mean, he’s a member of Congress who swore to protect and defend the Constitution? Now doesn’t he remember what the Constitution says about foreign treaties?
Oh yes, and shouldn’t Dana Rohrabacher know by now that torture doesn’t work? And really, why should we engage in torture if it doesn’t work? Shouldn’t we focus on enagaging in activities that actually keep our nation safe? Or does that make too much sense to “Crazy Dana”?
Well, I guess it must. After all, he still won’t admit that “manmade global warming” is real:
Your editorial also mentioned my outspoken opposition to the manmade global warming theory.
As a senior member of the Science Committee, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve studied vast amounts of peer-reviewed evidence directly challenging that theory. More than 31,000 scientists, 9,000 of whom hold Ph.Ds, recently signed a petition rejecting the idea of manmade global warming. I would say that makes me far from the Ã¢â‚¬Å“final authorityÃ¢â‚¬Â on this issue.
OK, so Dana would rather listen to a renegade minority than to the overwhelming scientific consensus on the reality of the climate crisis? Now how is that responsible behavior that a member of Congress should be displaying?
I guess Dana just doesn’t get it. The people of the 46th District are looking for real representation, not the same old extreme right rhetoric. And if Dana can’t seriously discuss the serious issues of the day like the Constitution and the climate crisis, then perhaps we should give him an “early retirement” this November.
