Well, if you were afraid Dondero -- a so-called "libertarian" who was pushing noted defender of civil liberties Rudy Giuliani for president -- might be taking the last couple weeks a little hard, it looks like you have reason to be concerned. Here's how Dondero responded to the election of Barack Obama on his dubiously named blog "Libertarian Republican":
Radical Islamists in a coalition with Communists have taken over the country. They murdered 3000 of our citizens on September 11, 2008. We defeated them on the battlefields in Afghanistan and Iraq. Now they've defeated us here on our own soil.
Freedom lovers, and members of politically incorrect ethnic groups need to take extreme caution.
In the comments thread, Dondero goes on to add: "One day we'll be able to say to the Stefans of the world, you see, we told you so. I fear, that it will be the very same day, we are all carted on the freight trains heading to our deaths in Obama's concentration camps." Uh, Eric, I'm not an expert on mental-health law, but I don't think involuntary commitment to a psychiatric facility is the same thing as being carted off to a "concentration camp."
On the one hand, it infuriates me that there are still people who actually say this kind of shit. On the other hand, watching them soil themselves with tinfoil-hat paranoia over the next four years will be a hoot and three quarters. Keep bringing it, Eric, we're gonna need something to entertain ourselves come February when Obama's inaugurated and football season is over.
