Aretha effin Franklin, Curt and the rest of you Blue MAGA Big Brother supporters!

pb's been stunned recently by the way progressives, including progressives here, are showing childlike trust in the FBI despite it's admitted invasion of Melania's boudoir and young Barron Trump's bedroom..

Now? Forty years of invading the privacy of Aretha. C'mon man! How about a little RESPECT.

From 1967 to 2007, the Federal Bureau of Investigation methodically collected information about Aretha Franklin using false phone calls, surveillance, infiltration, and highly-placed sources, according to the documents obtained in September by Rolling Stone...

The FBI declined several requests to comment for this article.


Big, duh, there, eh!!!!!?

    HtS,
    I notice that of people and entities you dislike you tend to support your complaints with ancient history. Aretha was apparently followed by the FBI starting in the J. Edgar Hoover era and vestiges of that surveillance for another three decades. Likewise your complaints about the Democrats usually mention Tammany Hall which had it's heyday in the 1890's.

    On the other hand, of entities and people that you support, the GOP and Trump for instance, you ignore and discount even his most recent courtroom convictions and decisions.

    The FBI and its agents tend to conservative and uber patriotic. They probably were suspicious of Aretha's civil rights activities. Likewise, they were suspicious of and alarmed by Trump's mishandling of classified documents.

    Huh?

    J Edgar? Was he conservative? Patriotic? He was, very possibly, be the most egregious violator of individual liberty and violator of personal privacy in American history.

    As to my frequent unrefutable claims about Tammany Hall? I've never said that Dems cheated during Tammany Hall. I note that Dems have been cheating since Tammany Hall. Dems have not stopped cheating since.

    I can't understand how a good dyed in the wool progressive such as yourself can be so nonchalant about the abusive overreaches of the FBI, which have been egregious almost from the beginning!

    The FBI is corrupt. It has always been. It's unlikely that will ever change.

    But, that you are so supportive of the FBI defies all reason.

    FYI, J. Edgar Hoover was a staunch, lifelong supporter of the Republican Party.

    Part of being a liberal like me is a reverence for facts and logic. I don't ascribe the sins of the fathers or the isolated incidents and ancient history of an organization when commenting on present day activities. The FBI has made mistakes and can be faulted for past abuses, but they have a pretty good batting average in combatting crime and threats to America.

    Who was the poster from the early days of the old forum who loved to suggest that criticisms of him were non sequiturs??

    This is a non sequitur and remarkably sanctimonious. Only libs reverence facts and logic, eh?

    Bahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahaha hoohoohoohoohoohoo heeheeheeheeheeheehee hahahahahahahahaha hoohoohoohoohoohoohoo heeheeheeheeheehee hahahahahahahahaha, ahhhhhhhhhhh!

    Apparently, you are very, uh, liberal, in how much leeway you'll grant Big Brother is abusing the Bill of Rights.
