In Defense of Heretics

I’ve spent a lot of words in this space smacking “the left” upside its own head for embracing or at least tolerating ranting neo-Stalinist goons while trashing liberal hawks as heretics, traitors, and (gasp) conservatives. It’s one reason among many why George W. Bush is likely to be president next year.
In all this time hardly any anti-war left-liberal person I know of has been able to see how asinine and counterproductive it is. It works great as a Republican recruitment drive, not that most of these people really care. Results are immaterial. Purity is everything.
Marc Cooper gets it. He might be the only one. And so I have to link him today and say thanks. Read what he has to say. I’ve waited too long for this.
