David Frum Weasels Out of a Morally-Suspect Corner: The 14 Errors in his Mea Culpa

2010 October 12

I was so eager to forgive David Frum and return to the status quo we had before he believed Alex Knepper’s lies about us. Politically Frum and NewsReal Blog might have some substantive disagreements but on the key issues of support for Israel and a hawkish response to Islamofascism he maintained my respect. And so I hoped we could return to a more cordial relationship akin to when he and David Horowitz debated the merits of Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Parties last fall.

Unfortunately Frum has chosen to be more horrified by our attempt to prevent the victimization of children than the strong probability of the sex crimes his former protege is likely to commit. While it’s certainly good news that Frum has chosen to fire Alex Knepper, he has still attempted to weasel out of making the correct moral judgments in order to save face. His mea culpa had numerous false statements against us. Whether they’re merely innocent errors or intentional lies I leave to others to judge. read more…

Hot Post: This is What Happens When Conservatives Surrender the Arts to the Neo-Communist Left

2010 October 10

Exhibit A in the Left's successful hijacking of popular culture and the Arts.

This popular post was first published on October 7 here.

I’ve been called a McCarthyite an awful lot since abandoning the Noam Chomsky Left.

It’s mostly from my friend Pat — a Ralph Nader supporter, Ed Schultz fan, and committed Union man. When he does it I always ask him if he’s ever read a single book on American communism, Soviet espionage, and the little that Senator Joe McCarthy actually did. I ask him why the central collective memory he’s managed to embrace of the period is that anti-communists were evil, crazy, anti-Americans who unfairly persecuted decent “progressives.”

And then he tells me proudly that he’s seen George Clooney’s “Good Night, and Good Luck.” That film is the sum total of everything that Pat knows about McCarthyism.

I suggest the books of Cold War historian Ron Radosh to him. But I know Pat won’t read them. It’s easier to pop in a Blu-Ray. And — I’m sorry Ron — George Clooney is just cooler than you are. read more…
