  •  I didn't ask you whether Greenwald was ... (0+ / 0-)

    an antisemite. I already know your opinion on that.

    I asked whether Amy Goodman, in your opinion, is an antisemite as well, since she interviews Glenn Greenwald so frequently and seems to take him seriously. (Or maybe you don't know who Amy Goodman is?)

    Also, do you agree with the proposition that Bush, Cheney, and other top Bush administration officials are war criminals?

      ....although I really never read her stuff.

      The Bush administration was full of criminals.  Whether they were war criminals or not has yet to be established, but is possible, even likely.  This is irrelevant to the discussion, oddly enough.

      •  Not so irrelevant, since it was the charge of ... (0+ / 0-)

        the now notorious tribunal of lunatics and antisemites, and I thought you were saying that Greenwald should "shut the fuck up" about international issues such as this one. Probably Greenwald didn't know that the tribunal included homophobes, as some have asserted it did (even if Greenwald actually were in agreement with their antisemitism), since Greenwald himself is gay.

        Greenwald is usually fairly well informed on such issues, so if he didn't know that the tribunal was made up of lunatics and homophobes, maybe he didn't know that they were antisemitic either.

        In any case, your comments seem to amount to a smear of Glenn Greenwald.

        A propos of antisemites, Paul Krugman (to return to economists) has commented that he himself has been called an antisemite by neoconservatives for his opposition to the Iraq war.

        Just curious: would you say Paul Krugman is an antisemite?

          The problem is that I wouldn't trust this bunch to tell me it was snowing in Antarctica.  Their credibility is the issue.  The fact that Greenwald lapped it up because they said what he wanted to hear is part of that issue.  It's the problem with his writings on anything outside the US.

            They will lap all kinds of dubious stuff up because it's what they want to hear. That's why it's so hard to talk to anyone who has especially strong feelings on any subject.
