(h/t Atrios & Kay)

Mark Levin often refers to conservative values in those terms and I guess he missed the time in 1986 William F. Buckley wrote that one man, one vote wasn't all that important:
“The government will not … grant political equality to everyone in South Africa. Nor should it. It is preposterous at one and the same time to remark the widespread illiteracy in South Africa and to demand the universal franchise.

“Continue our moral pressure, by all means. But … pull back on the one-man, one vote business.”
UPDATE: ThinkProgress has a nice timeline of conservatives defending apartheid.
