If Hitler invaded Hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons." --Winston Churchill
Christopher Hitchens has been an eloquent voice arguing for the military liberation of Iraq from Saddam Hussein. There, we've made a favorable reference to the aging Marxist ideologue. Horsefeathers took note of the fact that even when he urged America on vs. Saddam, Hitchens never uttered a word of appreciation or encouragement to Israel, a country at the front line of the war against Islamo-fascism, long before the U.S. confronted Saddam. In fact, for years, Hitchens went out of his way to demonize Israel and its leader, Ariel Sharon, as a war criminal. When he wasnt doing that, he was solidifying his bona fides with the crackpot left by endlessly attacking Henry Kissinger, also as a war criminal, and trying to undermine Winston Churchills reputation. His alliance with his great friend Edward Said put him in the camp of the UN anti-semites and supporters of the intifada, for whom Israel is a criminal, racist state. Hitchens apparently got lonely for his old buddies. Now he's returning to his leftist roots, joining a group of anti-semites and old, far left Bush haters (CAIR, Greenpeace, Natl Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and Barnett Rubinnow theres a blast from the 60s past!) in an ACLU lawsuit designed to cripple our efforts to interdict terrorists. Of course Hitchens protests that he has nothing in common with his new allies, but like Churchills alliance with the devil, they share the same goals. According to the New York Sun
Mr. Hitchens said he believes that the president and the intelligence establishment are using the war as a vehicle to expand their power beyond what is justified... See the rest here.
Is Christopher Hitchens a Marxist?
In short, I'm not at all surprised at this latest stunt - it gets his name in the press afterall...
