Daily Kos engages in a WAR ON THOUGHT!
I am fuming mad over a post written on DKos, which now has over 700 responses. This post features a highly offensive cartoon of Jewish mobsters, threatening Yale's faculty over the appointment of that failed academic, Juan Cole. You will see how the majority of DKos posters have no problem with the highly offensive cartoons depicting Jews as mobsters, and yet the majority of those posters were horrified at the Danish cartoon controversy. The post in question basically says it was the Jooooos that caused Juan Cole to not get the Yale appointment. It did not once question Juan Cole's level of scholarship. It just blanketly asserted it was the Jooooos. I have had it up to my eyeballs with the rabid antisemitism that I see bubbling over in the American (and world) left. BarryAnnArbor on DKos wrote a post which details this phenomenom very well. You will see the responses on this thread - and the lack of thought that goes into them. There is a very real war going on in this world. It is a war being fought on many fronts. This war, my friends, is a WAR ON THOUGHT! The left is fighting it with its P.C./multi-culturalism/Israel and America sucks orthodoxy. The right is fighting it with its anti-science/America-centric/don't question the president/religion in the public sphere orthodoxy. Join me, brothers and sisters, and help me fight the war to end all wars. This is the battle to end all battles. The revolution to end all revolutions. Join me as a fellow soldier in the war on thought!
