Guess what's missing from this Slate Top 10 list?

The Bill of Wrongs:
The 10 most outrageous civil liberties violations of 2006.
By Dahlia Lithwick


Yeah, you guessed it: DA Mike Nifong's Hunt for the Great White Defendants in the Duke Lacrosse Frame-Up is a no-show. You see, the long-running pattern of hate crime hoaxes victimizing white male college students is nothing compared to, say, #8 on Lithwick's List, the Bush Administration "Slagging the Media."

In recent news, the hoax continues to implode. Nifong dropped the rape charges but is pressing on with other felony charges. Meanwhile, the North Carolina State Bar is investigating Nifong for ethics violations. And now the North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys has asked him to recuse himself from the case.

The media has the views, essentially, of resentful Harvard English grads looking at their Harvard colleagues making the big bucks in I-banking.

So like most upper-class people they've convinced themselves that immigrants deserve priority over blue-collar Americans because they're oppressed more, among other things. It also explains why they're pro-gay marriage, anti-faith, and pro-abortion and hence can be tarred as the 'liberal media' by conservatives, but also why they're so anti-labor (and can be tarred as 'corporate media' by liberals). The media is, interestingly enough, both liberal and conservative but in ways that are out of step with America.

Not really sure why they want to keep the war going though.

(and having plenty of reasons to despise athletes myself, I was forced to root for the Duke guys on the principle of 'human rights don't just matter for people you like'.)

if anything, the duke case is an example of civil liberties AT WORK. Somebody was accused of rape, and a thorough investigation is being conducted. It was concluded that a rape could not be proven, so that part of the case was dropped. The students werent thrown in jail and found guilty by default because of their skin color, as was the norm in this country for many years. They werent lynched before a trial could even take place. They were accused, indicted, arrested, released on bond, and are being investigated. If the prosecutor thinks he can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a kidnapping and assault occurred, than he will take it to trial. Then a jury will decide if the Duke kids committed a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. If not, they will be released. This is exactly how the system works. So where is the civil liberty violation?

I wouldn't exactly describe it as a civil liberties violation either. It's more or less just a cliche leftist,anti-white mockery of justice where the local attorney and national media tried to play the race card, without a shred of evidence to support the rape of a typical deadbeat single black stripper mom without a shred of moral credibity. No screenwriter in hollywood could write such a bizarre script lampooning modern day politcal correctness, race bating, and the ridiculous selective 'outrage' over the incident by self-righteous leftists. The best weapon conservatives have in their arsenal is the actual left-wing. People see them and immediately realize no matter how terrible republicans, bush, and corporations are, its a hell of a lot better then these sociopaths and the devastation they could unleash when left in charge. The left mocks itself.
