Conservative Columnist Rick Berg-Frontier Justice Redefined: "Harsh Judgement?"

Isthmus's Daily Page exposed another off hand comment that for me can be added to the list of what I call the Assassination agenda. It's a minor infraction, but it still works its magic. Conservative columnist Rick Berg responds by "redefining" a term that will leave you scratching your head. Here's the letter that brings Berg's comment to light.

H. Bregman-Rick Berg writes: "The time has come to put the brakes on unbridled government speinding and administer a little frontier justice on those responsible." I would like to hear from Berg a credible definition of "frontier justice" that does not involve violence. If indeed he is recomending violence against elected officials, let's hear it in clearer terms.

Berg Replies:-The term "frontier justice" is commonly used to describe a harsh judgment. Use of that term to describe actions taken by California voters seems consistent with that meaning. It was not an endorsemnet of violence.

Rrrriight Rick. That's it. That's the ticket.

Here are a few meanings:

Urban dictionary: Frontier justice is to take justice in to your own hands regardless of the possible legal ramifications it may entail.

Scott Ritter's book-"Frontier Justice: Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Bushwhacking of America"

The topic at Allacademicresearch: Resisting "Frontier Justice": Medical Torture, U.S. Global Terror Prisons, and the Black Panther Party-This paper connects three historical terrains of "frontier justice": 2) the medical and CIA origins of torture and brainwashing in U.S. prisons and jails from the 1960s and 70s; 2) the torture at Abu Ghraib, Guantánamo, and other military prisons; and 3) the re-indictment of 8 political activists, tortured in the 1970 by New Orleans police officers.

Harsh judgement...Rick? If you say so.
