A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HATE-AMERICA SYNDROME
Many liberals object quite rightly to talk radio conservative criticism of various anti-war positions as evidence of ” hating America”, particularly when the broad brush of rhetoric lumps them in with the wingnuts and Communist front groups like ANSWER.
However, in some instances the charge is accurate and the ” anti-” position being taken is less ” anti-war ” than visceral ” anti-Americanism “- a reflexive and instinctive loathing of mainstream America for it’s virtues rather than it’s vices. This poisonous mindset is overrepresented in our universities and was exemplified by outbursts from academics like Nicholas DeGenova and various pro-Terrorist student Muslim activist groups led by Islamists and secular Marxist radicals. Here’s a new one. Read it and ask yourself what the author really is objecting to in this piece.
