Notice how in Russia, Medvedev's government is continuing in Putin's footsteps by dispersing street protests and arresting peaceful demonstrators.

Russians clearly don't want their liberals running around on the street, protesting and chanting. They have a destabilizing effect on society. So why should the US tolerate our liberals? They evidently aren't doing any good, so perhaps they should just be arrested whenever they start disrupting society.

If all he Liberals get locked up here, then there will be nobody to buy the fuel-efficient cars. Do you really want a glut of Priuses on the open market?

What a stupid question. Of course a country should lock up its liberals. I mean, how many public ugliness ordinances do they break every time they set foot outside their hovels?

The Bush regime admires the Russian approach to civil liberties so much that they are going in that direction.

The sad thing is, there are people who no doubt believe that they should be locked up, as they don't understand the constitution of the country they supposedly love.
Why is there always money for war, but none for education?

And I'll bet that not a one of the aforementioned liberals understands the Second Amendment.

Doofy, I also think that some liberals have problems with their looks. And the further left you go, the nastier/hairier they are. But these are not grounds upon which a strong case can be made to lock them up. I think that they ought to be locked up because this is how it is done in Russia, and it seems to work well for them.

You must be hallucinating Dakar, because I never made any sort of post about the number of rowers in my sig.

Yes, she should be locked up for her own safety.

Oops, I misread. Is this not another Britney thread?

Should the US lock up its liberals?
We do. We keep them contained in densely populated urban areas, makes them easier to track.

I'm not sure it'd do any good to "lock up" a sect of folks who've already imprisoned themselves intellectually. I mean, it's like a guy on death row. Why behave? What're they gonna do if he acts up, increase his sentence?

I'm sure the conservatives will find other ways of strapping bombs onto themselves and blowing up innocent civilians to make a point. That's way better than marching in protest.

Yeah, but it's the marching crowds of people that are the real problem.

Sure, I say lock 'em up. (Physically, not the self-imposed mind-imprisonment).

I'd finally give many of them what they've spent a lifetime desperately searching for: something legitimate to protest.

I honestly think that liberals like to feel victimized, as part of their desire for self-destruction and the diffusion of truth and meaning, so their natural desire is, believe it or not, to be oppressed. Therefore, they will ultimately find satisfaction in being locked up.

I think you give the modern western liberal way too much credit.

Many desire to be "oppressed"... from the comfort of the local Starbucks. Or from behind a computer screen. Many revel in the 'oppression' of being disagreed with, or being *gasp* subjected to the horrors of non-leftist opinions.

Being 'oppressed' by some harmless politician they pretend is a dictator, while enjoying every freedom known to mankind is just dandy. But ACTUAL, REAL-WORLD dictators are either to be fawned over -Castro, et al- or ignored entirely. They're certainly not to be protested against anywhere within reach, and DEFINITELY no liberal is going out of their way to be personally subjected to any semblance of real-world, dictator-style oppression, even though it'd be all too easy.

Since we're generalizing, I thought I'd chip in: Not caring about the oppressed because it's not affecting their way of life is what Conservatives do best. "Civil rights" is a convenience to be exploited when the oppressor controls resources that, if not controlled by the Conservatives, undermine the Conservative way of life. Conservatives just assume enslave, torture, imprison, and kill people "in the name of God/Allah/Democracy/Freedom" to protect their way of life no matter what; because they know that their way of life is the right one. There can't possibly be people in the world who wouldn't want to be like them.

Conservatives:

Look at all those crazy people. Why can't they just accept that our version of the world is the right version? There is only one way to live, and it's our way. Everything else is just crazy.

Terrorists:

Look at all those crazy people. Why can't they just accept that our version of the world is the right version? There is only one way to live, and it's our way. Everything else is just crazy.

Various Dictators:

Look at all those crazy people. Why can't they just accept that our version of the world is the right version? There is only one way to live, and it's our way. Everything else is just crazy.

All liberals that commit crimes should be locked up, along with anyone else that commits crimes.

It should be a crime to be a liberal.

Of course! We'll start with the majority of people who post on Macnn and move on to the liberal media.
