Our thoughts... Mu­si­cal tor­ture

The Covington News - - Opinion -

Re­cently some rock bands and other song­writ­ers said they were out­raged by the gov­ern­ment’s use of their songs for “mu­si­cal tor­ture” of ter­ror­ism sus­pects.

Re­ally, it’s in­ter­est­ing some of th­ese groups have been tor­tur­ing us for years with their mu­sic and noth­ing has ever been said about our feel­ings.

It would seem to us that af­ter see­ing the ef­fects of 9/11— the ter­ror bomb­ings of in­no­cent peo­ple — would prove to the bleed­ing hearts that cry out in in­dig­na­tion of our coun­try’s al­leged tor­tur­ing of ter­ror­ism sus­pects that without some type of strong in­ter­ro­ga­tion, our coun­try would not have been safe since the catas­tro­phe.

We have no doubt that if th­ese same bleed­ing hearts were in some ter­ror­ist-cre­ated sit­u­a­tion, they would be yelling the loud­est about gov­ern­ment in­ac­tion on their be­half.
