Many astute observers have noted the media elite's double standard in covering the liberal Newsom's defiance of California's marriage law (he's praised as a pioneer) versus conservative Alabama Judge Roy Moore's defiance of a federal court order to remove the Ten Commandments from his courthouse (he's condemned as a zealot). But this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Saboteurs in three-piece suits have been making mincemeat of the rule of law on a daily basis without so much as a shrug from the anti-Roy Moore watchdogs. Where's their outrage over the open-borders zealots on city councils and in police departments in San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles and New York, which have openly defied federal immigration laws and declared their cities sanctuaries for illegal aliens?

Where's the condemnation of California and Washington state public university officials, who continue to flout state laws -- passed overwhelmingly by the voters through the initiative and referendum process -- outlawing racially discriminatory affirmative action policies?

And where's the alarm over politicians nationwide enacting local resolutions to undermine federal anti-terrorism efforts? The Arcata, Calif., City Council has made it a crime for government employees to comply with requests made under the Patriot Act. Just last week, Dallas passed a resolution condemning the Patriot Act that gives the city's law enforcement officials "political and professional cover" to resist federal orders related to the law. New York City's anti-Patriot Act resolution likewise urges cops to refrain from threat profiling and to resist cooperating with homeland security authorities.

The shiny pied pipers of the lawless Left are leading us to drown in societal chaos. Oh, well. At least we'll have "diversity."
