going quiet -- plus, links

March 24th, 2005 (12:38 pm)

Don't have much net time, and will be having less in short order, so don't be surprised not to hear from me.

Before I go, I'll leave y'all with some stuff. Here are some serious links. Fun stuff later.

There are two reporters whose work you should be paying attention to: Nick Kristoff and Claudia Rossett. Rossett's coverage of the UN has been dogged and relentless, while Kristoff has the balls (and backing of his paper) to go into the world's hellholes and tell the human stories there.

I am increasingly concerned by anti-Semitism on the progressive Left. Universities aren't just at risk for this stuff; they're increasingly hotbeds of it. Call me crazy, but when people in the famously tolerant and progressive Berkeley, CA start chanting, "Don't believe the news, it's controlled by the Jews," [video link; follow the previous link to page 2 for a transcript] I think we have a problem. Even if it's not as bad as some other places, yet.

That the majority of Jews continue to express blind allegiance to the Left even as the Left begins to demonstrate Nazi-like seething hostility towards them baffles me.

It's not the majority of the progressive Left that's doing the real seething, fortunately. The problem is that that majority *isn't smacking these people down, and hard.*

Because if they don't, then the new majority will be very, very ugly.
