Bob Herbert/NYT condemns plan no one is calling for (NPR's Soviet-style question about turning in illegal aliens)
Bob Herbert of the New York Times offers "Spies Like You and Me", in which he valiantly speaks out against plans for average citizens to turn in suspected illegal aliens. His starting point for the condemnation was the question that NPR asked at their debate.
The only problem is that no national figure is calling on average citizens to call ICE on random dishwashers and such.
In fact, NPR's question was a strawman argument and helped show that they have no knowledge of this issue. It was also akin to Soviet-style debates, in which the Politburo wrote both the questions and the answers. Anyone in their right mind would know how the candidates would respond, and they did so in the expected fashion. "Do you agree that this Five Year Plan is the greatest plan yet?" was probably never answered with a "no".
Herbert is too stupid or too disingenuous to figure that out.
