Perry on capital punishment
The repellent Brian Williams, exactly like his predecessor at NBC the repellent Tom Brokaw, puts out this big act that he’s just one of the common American people, an act he uses to advance contempt of the common American people and their traditional values (to the extent that they still have any after 50 years of modern liberal rule). That contempt was on display last night when he asked Gov. Perry about capital punishment in Texas (video clip):
WILLIAMS: Governor Perry, a question about Texas. Your state has executed 234 death row inmates, more than any other governor in modern times. Have you…It is very good to hear an American officeholder and presidential candidate speak this way. For as long as I can remember, even the supporters of capital punishment, such as George W. Bush, have defended it on the basis of “deterrence,” rather than of justice. But of course justice is the main issue. A person who has committed certain types of crimes should not continue to exist on this earth. It is justice to remove him from this earth, and the most terrible injustice to let him continue living among us.
