Liberal McCarthyism


I have to agree with Greenwald that this would-be smearing of John Tyner is an embarrassment. The basic thrust of the article is to invoke “Koch” the way wingers invoke “Soros” — to preemptively discredit any critic whether or not there’s any actual direct connection and without engagement on the merits. In addition, the personal details couldn’t be less damning. Indeed, his relatively consistent libertarianism makes him a far more credible critic of the TSA practices than conservatives who criticize the new TSA procedures (which might affect them!) as a respite from cheerleading arbitrary, illegal torture performed by the executive branch.
