The Strange Silence on the David Rivkin Cyber-attack

Heard about the cyber-attack recently launched on the website of David Rivkin, lead counsel for 26 states and the National Federation of Independent Business in the Florida lawsuit against Obamacare? Probably not. The perpetrators managed to destroy entire sections of his website. My Heritage colleague, Cully Stimson, points out that what is most amazing is how this attack has been completely ignored by the mainstream media and left-wing civil liberties groups.

As Stimson says, “Imagine, for example, a similar attack on the website of the plaintiffs in the challenge to California’s Proposition 8, which struck down same-sex marriage in the state. Imagine the outrage, finger-pointing, and howls of indignation that would follow. The media, as well as the ACLU and others, would be quick to condemn conservatives, and many prominent conservatives, no doubt, would disassociate themselves from the cyber-attack. And rightly so — conservatives don’t need to cheat or break the law to win the war of ideas.”

Nothing but silence from the left side of the political aisle.
