I first heard about this libturd’s statement last week and gave it no further thought. It’s not like Oregon, at least its major population centers, is devoted to the rule of law.
Today I came across an excellent piece by Dennis Prager at Townhall, where he responds to each excuse.
First, a list of Governor John Kitzhaber’s excuses:
1)”I refuse to be part of this compromised and inequitable system any longer.”
2)”I do not believe that those executions (the two that the governor allowed) made us safer.”
3)”Certainly I don’t believe (the executions of murderers) made us more noble as a society.”
4)Oregon has an “unworkable system that fails to meet basic standards of justice.”
5)”… And I simply cannot participate in something I believe morally wrong.”
For those of us familiar with the anti-Death Penalty supporters who frequent this site, all these excuses are to be expected from them, not from a Governor who is the chief executive of a state and who has already signed off on two executions.
I encourage you to read Dennis Prager’s thorough and thoughtful Fisking of the moonbat Governor.
