Lindsey Graham, a United States senator, on the man who landed a tiny unarmed gyrocopter on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol as a protest against the Citizens United Decision:
“He should have been subject to being shot out of the sky. I don’t know why he wasn’t, but our nation is under siege. Radical Islam is a threat to our home land. There are probably radical Islamic cells in our backyard already. And if somebody is willing to, you know, approach vital government infrastructure, they should do so at their own peril.”In a more advanced society, the senator would be kept in a quiet place and treated kindly until he was judged to be no longer a threat to others.
