Default Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Well, that's how you play the Political game in 21st Century America. The first one to call "racism" or "antisemitism" wins. I'm sure if Meade were to discuss Black issues in a way Glenn didn't like the "racism card" would've been thrown and its Meade who would've shown a "flash of fear".

Frankly, if people are stupid enough to be buffaloed in this way (as Americans have been for the past 50 years...or maybe always) - they get what they deserve. I can't blame AIPAC, the Black Caucus or anyone else from playing the victim or the "you're a racist/bigot/homophobe/sexist" card when morons think that's the worst thing in the world ever, ever. Honestly, I think some people would literally kill themselves rather than be labeled as (fill in the blank).
