Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Thursday, 2018.03.22
[W]hen I went on Question Time the other week, a woman in the audience, her
voice quavering with self-righteousness, presented the following argument: since
it was America that supported Osama bin Laden when he was fighting the Russians,
the US armed forces, in response to September 11, should be dropping bombs on
themselves!? And the audience applauded. It is quite an achievement. People of
liberal sympathies, stupefied by relativism, have become the apologists for a
creedal wave that is racist, misogynist, homophobic, imperialist, and genocidal.
To put it another way, they are up the arse of those that want them dead.

Warms the room.
But not the heart.
