Hammer, meet nail

This entry at Harry's Place really hits the nail on the head.

A busy spell on the blog (scroll down if you've not been here for a while),
so lets just take stock.
After the reaction of 'Index on Censorship' to the
murder of Theo Van Gogh (below) where does that leave us in the

bizarre world of the post-9-11 left?
We have 'peace' campaigners who are in favour of
We have 'anti-fascists' who support fascists.
We have 'feminists' supporting the oppressors of women.
We have 'socialists' against trade unions.
We have 'revolutionaries' in favour of the status quo and
We have 'anti-racists' who support racists.
We have 'secularists' against secularism.
And now we have anti-censorship campaigners
who respond to a political murder by saying the victim had 'abused his right to
free speech'.
And they say we are the ones who have sold out?

The same people who were against supporting tyrants while combating
communism in the 80's, are the same people were against toppling saddam
last year. We must be consistent children, once you support a tyrant you
must always support him.
