teh politics… crank up the grain-of-salt meter
I said I was stepping back and using rubber bullets, so much for that… and I guess Stageleft and Balbulican are a little preoccupied, but looks like SL’s back so here goes…
When the former Liberal leader responded to his defeat with a call for donations under the rally cry “Never Again”, Robert Jago attacked him for cheapening a slogan with a strong, if not primary reference to the Holocaust in this post: Dion appropriates holocaust slogan to fundraise for Liberals. Balbulican considered this ridiculously partisan.
When Stageleft fails to make the weepingly obvious distinction that blaming Hamas is nothing like our government “defending” this, Balbulican…? A different tack. I’m starting to think the term ‘moral equivalency’ doesn’t begin to describe the one sidedness of blame here.
