I Know You Are …
John Podhoretz at The Corner has gotten hate e-mail from an alleged Christian. There are atill handful of anti-Jewish loons remaining on the right. On the other hand, there was a reaction from driftglass that was even more intemperate than the quoted parts of the Christian loons e-mail. If we should avoid alliances with hate-filled people, we should stat far away from driftglass's ideology.
I put the following response to driftglass in a comment:
Come to think of it, some Jew haters on the right oppose fundamentalist Christianity on the grounds that it's too Jewish.
Speaking as a Jew (and not a Christian), I oppose any attempt to restrict human rights on the basis of membership in a group. That's why I'm anti-abortion.
Also speaking as a Jew, I oppose policies that were invented to keep down Jews. That's why I'm against affirmative action.
While I'm at it, there's a strong possibility that the Nixon-era ban on DDT was instituted for the purpose of letting malaria kill off blacks in Africa. I want DDT to be relegalized. Do you?
