Update: the same Jake Tepper, noted below, wishes to clarify what he said:
@zerohedge your blog post erroneously suggests that i support that sentiment -- please fix, that's not what I was saying— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) December 23, 2013

Wow, this is straight up insane propaganda at the highest level. He is not even trying to hide the message. CNN’s Jake Tapper just comes out and says it:
I think the American people, honestly, want security over freedom.

Compare that to let’s say, Benjamin Franklin:
Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
- Benjamin Franklin
That right there demonstrates perfectly how far we have fallen culturally.
