I have now been called antisemitic and intellectually unstable and a whole bunch of other silly things by the folks over at the Commentary blog. They want Time Magazine to fire or silence me. This is happening because I said something that is palpably true, but unspoken in polite society: There is a small group of Jewish neoconservatives who unsuccessfully tried to get Benjamin Netanyahu to attack Saddam Hussein in the 1990s, and then successfully helped provide the intellectual rationale for George Bush to do it in 2003. Their motivations involve a confused conflation of what they think are Israel’s best interests with those of the United States. They are now leading the charge for war with Iran.
2008. August. “Palpably true, but unspoken in polite society?” Time Magazine’s Joe Klein, ladies and gentlemen.
Other blogs today are on the Boy King’s hubris and presumption. Old news to our merry little band here.
Klein’s item is a cut above (below?), just for the sheer lunacy and hilarity. He’s always been superficial and thin skinned, especially when the netroots exposed his vacuity. Klein’s obtuseness has those extra secret ingredients: astounding narcissism and self-absorption. To him, this secret [sic] about neocons can be revealed now because *he* is being attacked. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
We give Klein 4 Leos out of 5. If he had waited for Beijing, the Chinese judge might have made it an even 5.
