Sighted on the Internet: Jews that inspire admiration..
1. Over at the Spine, in a message board attached to the The New Republic, I have developed a highly venomous relationship with one commenter, a self-proclaimed Jewish something or other (hard to determine exactly as he keeps adding to his credentials). I'm using my blog not only to express my opinions but also as a log, a way of keeping record of strange and anomalous thinking i sometimes come across in my travels across the Internet. This certain commenter has to be recorded:
He started by stating:
" What Obama was most unprepared for is the reality that the enemies of America are not just the Iranians, Moslem terrorists, the Chinese, and such, but the entire American right."
And then went on to explain, lest there should be any mistake about the levels of his fanatic loathing:
"Every last one of them is an enemy of the United States of America, happy intentionally to damage the nation for the purpose of unseating Obama, happy to side with our enemies and make our problems, such as unemployment, worse for the purpose of unseating Obama, even willing to declare that the purpose of power in the hands of the Republican party is not to address the problems of the nation but to unseat Obama. And what they will do for personal greed is unspeakable. They are enemies. We are in a life and death struggle with them for the future of our nation, or whether it even has much of a future. Traitors, scoundrels, liars and thieves one and all.
I suspect this is the sentiment that noga finds so odious. But, it is true none-the-less. And we know perfectly well where noga would find her political company if she were an American.
Time to ratchet up the rhetoric and go hand to hand with these insane sons of bitches in the same hyperbolic terms in which they attack the left. We need open political warfare in America, with two sides engaged, not just one. Then the matter can reach some resolution -- either they are marginalized, finally, or they get a free hand to wreck the place. Appeasement is not an option any longer.
PS There are no doubt some reasonable people on the right, somewhere, but they have more or less of the same mythical character as "moderate Moslems" who are supposed to engage and overcome Islamist radicals. If they exist at all, they certainly aren't doing anything much to combat extremism. So too with right-wing moderates. If they exist at all, which is doubtful, they are doing nothing to contest with their dominant extremists. Hence, we can ignore them as either to few and/or too craven to make a difference. The one righteous person in Sodom."
As I said, just for the record.
To say that Jonathan Chait, a regular writer for The new Republic, does not like Sara Palin, would do him a gross disservice. The English language has not yet generated the necessary words by which his loathing of her can be properly expressed. So, language failing to do justice to the great agitation he is seized with whenever she moves into his field of vision, he resorts to some very low tricks. He only posts a photo of the lower half of her face and within a few sentences he cross-references her with a clip from a horror movie in which a monster is featured. So in one piece of writing, one pretty short article, the reader is forced more or less to substitute Palin's real face with that of a shudder-inducing inhuman monster.
Nice sleight of hand. Where have we seen such tactics employed before?
