A few readers have written to support spoiled Greenwich communist and Darien Flopccupy attendee Cole Strangler for his “youthful idealism”. Hmm – let’s look at what this product of Brunswick espouses: a terrorist society, the enslavement of the citizenry, torture, bone-grinding poverty, suppression of free speech, secret police, gulags, murder of anyone who wears eyeglasses, a “Cultural Revolution”, state propaganda masquerading as the only officially permitted “art” , forced starvation, tens of millions dead - have I missed anything? If I have, surely this “student of international history” can add more.
So what is this “idealism” my readers find so attractive, so worthy of defense? I suggest that, were Strangler advocating the return of the Third Reich he would not be so warmly applauded but then again, perhaps I’m wrong – haters of individual freedom know no boundaries to their zealotry.
UPDATE: Some asshole has just been tossed into the dustbin of history – that would be the spam file – for writing to tell me that this post proves I’m an anti-Semite. I don’t mind stupidity – I post all or most of Dollar Bill’s screeds - but to interpret a disapproving reference to Nazis as proof of anti-Semitism is so very, very stupid that I’m really not interested in anything else the former reader might have to say. Some people just shouldn’t be allowed access to crayons.
