Reader Phil B., expatriate Brit now living in New Zedland, sent me a link to a Salon.com op-ed with the note:
This is why trying to reason with left wing, right on, politically correct groupthinkers is a bit like trying to wallpaper fog. And, incidentally, why I firmly believe we are deep within an era of anti-Renaissance where such idiocy is published and taken seriously.
Billy Beck calls it “The Endarkenment.” And I am fully in agreement with Phil on his “wallpapering fog” assessment.
This thing is so full of WTF? that I can’t even fisk it. My brain boggles.
If you’ve got a few brain cells you’re not too happy with and are willing, nay eager to sacrifice, go read Why the Right Hates Detroit, written by the biggest case of white-guilt I think I’ve ever seen.
I’m amazed this man hasn’t offed himself due to his own self-loathing. I guess he’s found a way to project it onto anyone to the political right of Mao.
At least the commenters appear sane, though I didn’t read many of those. I have to wonder about Salon’s editors.
