"Who voted against the Patriot Act . . ."

Who voted against the Patriot Act, and who would answer:
The fascista prevail, far there, far here; Who does not know why
the spear of the harpoon piercing the skin cannot be removed
when pulled back to where the tip caught hold and can only shred;
Fascist Ahab, keen-eyed Ishmael, the Pequod’s fellaheen
citizenry: Is there no purity save the world’s white whale?
