[ Last time I looked ~ most Semites spoke Arabic ]
In the last day or two
we have seen one of the most remarkable policings
of the discourse
that I’ve ever seen
… and it seems to be one man’s achievement,
that the longtime New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd
that the Romney braintrust
includes the same guys
who started the Iraq war.
It is remarkable
because so many people inside the Beltway have heeded Goldberg;
even Joe Klein in defending Dowd says that she was crude
– this from a man who wrote openly of Jewish neoconservatives,
which Dowd didn’t do
– and so the line has held:
the idea that we are allowed to debate the Jewish neoconservatives’ role in the Iraq war for the sake of Israel,
well that is an anti-Semitic idea.
As Goldberg says,
it is the idea that the gentiles didn’t start that war,
but were manipulated into it
by the likes of Wolfowitz and Feith.
