Interesting essay by Scott Hogenson of CNSNews. It makes a good double feature with this October 2002 piece on left-wing bigotry by Andrew Sullivan, who wrote it just as the bloom was coming off the all-too-brief post-9/11 detente by the American left.
When I originally linked to it, a week before the 2002 mid-term elections, I wrote:
When you resort to the examples that Sullivan gives above, it says to me that you’re losing the argument; you’ve relinquished your role as moral leader, and you’ve got to crank up the noise–and the hate–to compensate.
I think that’s even truer today.
