This weekend was the 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon’s resignation as president of the United States and the Worldnetdaily, that bastion of alleged Christian virtue, has a profile and an interview with G. Gordon Liddy that shows his complete lack of moral character.
While Watergate did not engulf President Nixon until after his re-election, Liddy was arrested and later convicted on multiple counts.
He was sentenced to prison in January 1973. Between his arrest and his sentencing, Liddy became a household name for refusing to say a word about the Watergate plot. Liddy said his silence was based on a very simple premise.
“It concerned me that it was a threat to the administration,” he said. “I wanted to preserve the administration of Richard Nixon, and I knew that if I didn’t talk, it would secure those above me. So I didn’t talk, but Dean cracked and talked. That’s what brought down Richard Nixon.”…More than 40 years after the Watergate saga began, Liddy made it clear he has few regrets about the episode. He said he had good reasons to break the law and those reasons have since been validated again and again.
“I saw Democrats as being dangerous to the country,” he said. “I see the Democrats now as being even more dangerous to the country. I wanted to prevent them from being able to damage the country further. So I chose to make use of the special knowledge that I had as a result of the FBI and so forth. That was it.”
But remember, it’s secular progressives that are moral relativists.
