Liberal Hearts Beat for Guantanamo Detainees

By Con George-Kotzabasis

One can always count on Steve Clemons of The Washington Note and his consort nipple-fed intellectuals to misplace their soft heart to the side of the detainees at the expense of the innocent killed by these irremediable religious fanatics. This is the main reason that despite Clemons’ great and fervent desire to be a policy architect in geopolitical affairs within the corridors of power will always be frustrated by the dictum of political necessity that moves without the beats of one’s ‘humanitarian’ heart. Misplaced humanitarians have always the disposition to sacrifice life on the altar of their sanctimonious divinely unchanged norms.

But in the end for leftists and centre left inclined like Clemons, empirical reality is spurned by pure, noumenal politics. The heart stands in moral judgment over the intellect. Facts do not stand in cognitive judgment over romantic ideas.
