The Chief ran across this commentary on a recent Tom Friedman piece in the NY
Times Slimes. Ordinarily I would link it directly, and go from there…but decided in this case not to give him the drect readership from even a reference link.
You can get the gist of it from the coverage in CFP, along with appropriate critical commentary.
Thomas Friedman thinks you are â€œstupidâ€ if you still care about the atrocity committed against this country by Islamofascists in New York on 9/11/2001.
He thinks â€œ9/11 is overâ€ and we all should just move on. Even worse, he has decided that we are no longer a great country, but are filled with seemingly meaningless â€œfear,â€ that we have a dilapidated infrastructure, and that while America used to be â€œthe gold standard,â€ he believes â€œWe arenâ€™t anymore.â€ Friedman is falling for the typical, leftist doom-and-gloom scenario and imagines that China is better than we are, Europe is more inviting, and we have become the new Rome after the fall. His closing line is â€œWe canâ€™t afford to keep being this stupid!â€ By contrast to Friedman, my opening line to him is â€œWe canâ€™t afford to be this self-loathing!â€
What a total crock! Can you say “Poor situational awareness”? This guy desperately needs a sharp blow upside the head with the old cluebat.
