One of the authors of Fraterslibertas heard the Trunk on the radio this morning talking about “The Silence of the Liberals,” i.e., their silence regarding gang violence in Minneapolis. He says the Trunk “more than held his own;” his only complaint was that he forgot to plug Power Line. The show lit up the telephone lines like few topics they’ve ever had. Callers included the head of the state’s Gang Task Force–who reported that Minneapolis had recently reduced its team of dedicated gang officers from nine members to two–and a Minneapolis City Council member, both of whom supported Scott. The Trunk will no doubt post an update later on; for now, it looks like the publicity Scott has given this issue through Power Line and his piece in the St. Paul Pioneer Press has launched a real debate on a topic that until now has been shrouded in silence.
