You DO have a dog in this fight

Jerry Pournelle on Terri Schiavo, again In Chaos Manor Musing's Current View, Thursday, this comment from Jerry Pournelle:
She is unfortunate. She is a white female Catholic innocent of any crime. Were she Black, or Hispanic, then she would have her defenders and the more her brain damage the more insistent the ACLU would be on defending her rights. As it is, she has no one to defend her but some people who actually believe in law and justice and are not raising a rebellion in her aid. Esmerelda had her beggars as defenders. But she was hanged quickly even so. Along with her goat.
One is tempted to add, "Of course." But then, one always attempts to resist such temptations. Not. Further, were she a confessed monster, convicted of horrible acts of brutality and justifiably sentenced to death after all due process of law, she would be the poster child of the Left as they sought every means to prevent her death. This isn't irony. It's the "logic" of monsters, Satan-spawn. Once can almost hear the dialog between Wormtwood and Screwtape... You DO have a dog in this fight.
First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me. –Martin Niemöller
