Of red flags and cows

A Voice From the Herd moos about the end justifying the means… because it’s for the children, of course:

I went at Vox Day for his inhuman attitude towards a phone call from an abused teenager. It appears that the call could be a hoax, even so I think the authorities had to err on the side of caution and Vox’s “christian” attitude still sucked ass…. Once more if that is what libertarianism is.. fuck it, if that is what your christian god deems moral fuck him too.

The idea that the authorities “had to err on the side of caution” by kidnapping 416 children on the basis of a single anonymous phone call that increasingly appears to be a hoax is a clear demonstration of how most women and not a few men really do want to be slaves. Freedom always comes at a price. If you’re not willing to pay it, then you will sell yourself into slavery. Hareball doesn’t realize that it is not libertarianism or the Christian God that she is rejecting here, but the freedom offered by both. The shame is that so many like her are so willing to force others into the same fearful servitude that they themselves crave.

One wonders what my religious faith has to do with the obvious violations of due process and the rule of law on the part of the Texas CPS agents responsible for kidnapping the children. As for the terrible “horror” that the women and children have supposedly endured prior to the kidnappings, I note that every single woman has preferred to return to her “abusers” than remain safe in the supposedly protective arms of the Texas government. The children, on the other hand, have been permitted no such freedom of choice by those who claim to have “rescued” them.

UPDATE – The evidence mounts and the self-proclaimed “child protection” advocates are “stunned”:

Texas authorities say Swinton is a person of interest in their search for the girl whose call prompted them to raid the Yearning for Zion Ranch. Department of Public Safety officials declined to discuss the case as part of an ongoing investigation, but issued a statement Friday saying the Rangers accompanied Colorado Springs police to search Swinton’s home for items related to previous false reports to authorities. Officers found several items indicating a possible connection between Swinton and calls regarding FLDS compounds in Colorado City, Arizona, and the one near Eldorado. The Rangers are “actively pursuing Rozita Swinton as a person of interest regarding telephone calls placed to a crisis center hotline in San Angelo,” the DPS said…

“The Texas Rangers told us she was obsessed with the FLDS. They confiscated tons of material on the FLDS (in the search of Swinton’s home). She even gave real addresses and real names of FLDS people.”

If you don’t see a very serious problem with this system, which supporters of the kidnappings claim worked precisely as it was supposed to, well, just send me your address and we’ll arrange to have some children make a few frightened phone calls. Perhaps you’ll feel differently about it then. And would you be just as fine with the mass kidnapping if she’d been a black woman obsessed with Jews instead of Mormons?

UPDATE II – Now they’re taking the little kids away too:

Adult mothers who have been allowed to stay with their young children since they were taken from a polygamous sect will be separated from them after DNA sampling is completed next week, a child welfare official said Saturday.
