      •  The flier is offensive, agreed (0+ / 0-)

        link should work now

        TRing will not make the flier go away.

        •  And it belongs in this thread why? (0+ / 0-)

          The diary topic is pundits...not I/P.

          Stay on topic or be prepared in the future to be troll rated. You want to take on an I/P fight at DailyKos be prepared to not stay here long.

          You've been warned...

            Kos employed thought police. that's #1.

            #2.  the only text that was not directly from the flier was the word 'Iranophobia."  I supplied that word.  Is that what troubled you?

            #3.  I count myself among those who attempt to "comfort the afflicted & afflict the comfortable."  I've come to learn that the latter are not always happy to be discomfited.  So it goes.  What was it Ms. Rice & the President and Mr. Olmert all said after the Annapolis conference:  "If it was easy, it would have been done by now."  If you feel you need to build a wall against knowledge, perhaps you should try to understand why that knowledge is so threatening to you.

          •  because Clawson, Muravchik, Podhoretz =Pundits (0+ / 0-)

            and the reference is NOT to I/P but to Israel & Iranophobia.  Which is on topic.

            Still scratching head re "Stay on topic...yada yada...You've been warned."

            Haven't heard anything so impotently arrogant since a substitute teacher in 4th grade.

            •  Stick around for 3+'ll see (0+ / 0-)

              or not...your call

              Experience is an interesting teacher....

              •  my goal is not to validate the status quo (0+ / 0-)

                but to awaken the sleeping & educate the ill informed.

                being TRd on an anonymous, ultimately noninfluential internet chat board is NOT the worst thing that could happen to me.

                On the other hand, dropping bombs on Iran is a very bad thing.

                Seems like a no brainer to me to argue that the ideologically blinded ought to be held to account for their sensationalistic and deceitful rhetoric intended to incite hatred against Iran.  I'm willing to risk the WWwraatthh of sallycat kkoos to achieve the larger goal.
