The Paranoid Style In American Liberalism

by William Kristol - Publication date: January 2nd, 2006 - The Weekly Standard
No reasonable American, no decent human being, wants to send up a white flag in the war on terror. But leading spokesmen for American liberalism- hostile beyond reason to the Bush administration, and ready to believe the worst about American public servants- seem to have concluded that the terror threat is mostly imaginary. It is the threat to civil liberties from George W. Bush that is the real danger.


What is one to say about these media--Democratic spokesmen for contemporary American liberalism? That they have embarrassed and discredited themselves. That they cannot be taken seriously as critics. It would be good to have a responsible opposition party in the United States today. It would be good to have a serious mainstream media. Too bad we have neither.

I don't often agree with William Kristol, even though we both claim to be neo-Conservatives. However this time we seem to be on the same wavelength. A Very good article that I highly recommend.
