Alberto "Torture Memos" Gonzales is welcomed at UF

The University of Florida, where a student was tasered during a visit from John Kerry some months ago, recently played host to none other than Alberto "Torture Memos" Gonzales, President Bush's former lead counsel and a former Texas Supreme Court Justice. His welcome was a little less than warm.

What you don't see in that video is the demonstrators who actually made it up onto the stage dressed as orange-clad, hooded Guantanamo detainees. They were arrested and charged with disrupting a public event. Seems like a charge well worth the experience, to me.

Why in God's name would the University of Florida pay $40,000 for a speech by one of the most infamous, vilified characters in recent American history? I could see a right wing think tank doing that, but a public university? The man doesn't even believe habeas corpus to be a Constitutional right! Remember this?

Read: Article One, Section Nine, which states ...
  • "The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it."
For aiding this President in the unlawful destruction of one of our most sacred rights, this man deserves to be hounded for years to come.

No sleep for the wicked.
