Who Excises Jessica?

Jessica McBucher has a banal piece (among many) about the anti-war referendums sweeping the country, that Paul Soglin correctly labels as “red-baiting.”

As usual, McBucher blames the media for not doing enough to inform people about these referendums. Umm, well ... My only question is, if you don’t deny there are average and well-meaning Wisconsinites involved in the push for referendums, then what’s your point. Are you saying these people are not intelligent enough to make their own decisions on what groups to join, and who to protest with if this is what they choose.

Hmmm? Are you trying to say that these people are not as smart as you because, gasp, they don’t believe the same nonsense as you.

You are just a Joe McCarthy wannabe in a skirt. And by the way, you managed to excise the name of the leader of the group you use as a source for your innuendos. His name is David Horowitz, an extreme right-wing apologist who has said:

Regarding Cindy Sheehan: "It's very hard to have respect for a woman who
exploits the death of her own son and doesn't respect her own son's life. She
portrays him as an idiot."

Regarding the late Peter Jennings: "Peter Jennings is dead, may he rest in
peace. Lest we forget, however, while he was alive Peter Jennings did
considerable damage to the cause of civilization and human decency by his
sympathy for Jew-hating terrorists and their supporters."

Regarding Democrats in general: Democrats, media are "getting Americans
killed in Iraq ... because of their pathological hatred of George [W.] Bush.

David Horowitz proudly proclaims that he is an ex-Marxist, implying, I guess, that this makes him an expert. To me, the only thing he is an expert at is an inability to make up his mind.

As for his last comment, funny, I thought bombs and bullets were killing our soldiers … as well as George Bush. He’s the one who sent them there under false pretenses.

So Jessica, good source there. Thanks again for a laugh.
