Besides being a pioneering champion of women’s rights and a fearless all-around freedom fighter, Phyllis Chesler is a regular contributor to NewsReal Blog.

So a new post by independent investigative journalist Robert Stacy McCain captured my attention today:

Who Is Rachel Tabachnick, and Why Is She Attacking Phyllis Chesler?

It seems Rachel Tabachnick’s recent article at Zeek (“a Jewish journal of thought and culture” associated with the venerable Forward periodical) accuses Chesler of “single-minded zealotry” and  of “promoting the Religious Right and its Christian nationalism” as part of “The War Against Tolerance.”

McCain notes that Tabachnick is a regular contributor to something called Talk2Action, a Daily Kos-connected project designed specifically, McCain writes, “to defeat Republicans by discrediting conservative Christians, portraying them as dangerous, intolerant kooks.”

Now McCain wants to know, “Who’s paying the bills at Talk2Action.org?”

Any ideas?
