Q&A Friday #81: Are You Giving The American Conservative A Pass?
Question: “Mr. Hawkins – I know how upset you get when any liberal mentions Bush/Republicans and Hitler in the same breath. The current issue of The American Conservative has on it’s cover a picture of Guiliana in Nazi brownshirt uniform. Since you haven’t mentioned this at all, I wonder is it because it doesn’t bother you as much when a conservative does it?” — tomkat
#1) I don’t feel compelled to comment on every story that comes out and even if I did, I wouldn’t have time to do it.
#2) What I said on #1 is true even of people comparing Republicans to Nazis because it’s an everyday thing for liberals. If I wrote a post every time some liberal compared a Republican to a Nazi, I wouldn’t have time to do anything else, including brush my teeth, take a shower, or make fun of Hillary Clinton.
#3) Although I do bash other conservatives on a semi-regular basis, people who want to see obsessive attacks on conservatives tend to read blogs like the Daily Kos and Firedoglake, not Right Wing News.
#4) Of course, it was moronic for the American Conservative to draw Giuliani wearing what looks like a brownshirt uniform, but what do you expect from them? They’re almost impossible to distinguish from idiots like Michael Moore, Kos, and the Huffington Post on the war, so it’s not a surprise that they did exactly what you’d expect from a bunch of liberals.
