Faux-Libertarian uses the old "what are you afraid of?" excuse to justify invasion of privacy
The arrogance and hypocrisy is astounding:
“Surveilling a professor’s communications is a really troubling approach to protecting liberty,” the law professors wrote in a letter published Tuesday on the Chapel Hill News website and in the paper’s Wednesday print edition. “We deeply admire Gene Nichol’s commitment to protecting and speaking for the state’s poor and disempowered. The only comfort we take from this sorry request by Civitas is our confidence that it will increase his passion.”
“They’re all tenured law professors making big bucks, far more than I make,” De Luca said. “I don’t have any fancy degrees or anything. What are they scared of?”
Of course, we'll have to take your word for the difference in salaries, because the man pulling your strings doesn't make a habit out of releasing salary information on his
puppets employees. But even if we knew, what the hell does that have to do with the price of tea in China? Are you saying the more money you make, the less your expectation of privacy should be? Because if that's the case, I think we should go ahead and submit FOIAs for all of Art Pope's communications since he's become a government bureaucrat. If he's done nothing wrong, he shouldn't be scared of that, right?
