Responding to the unfolding situation in Boston, Lindsey Graham today declared that "the homeland is the battlefield" before salivating over the idea of drones patrolling Boston's skies.
"This is Exhibit A of why the homeland is the battlefield.” Recalling Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster, Graham noted that he took to the Senate floor specifically to object to Rand’s notion that “America is not the battlefield.” [...] “It’s a battlefield because the terrorists think it is.” Referring to Boston, he observed, “Here is what we’re up against,” and added, “It sure would be nice to have a drone up there."Yes, Lindsey. It's understandable why you would be giddy about the idea of declaring our cities battlefields and hunting American citizens on U.S. soil. After all, it's clear from your Tweets today that you're not concerned about Americans' constitutional rights:
"The last thing we may want to do is read the Boston suspect Miranda Rights telling him to remain silent."Why would you be concerned about any rights at all? Particularly when the continental United States is a battlefield upon which citizens have free and easy access to assault rifles, without background checks.
