Peter Wehner’s article for NRO on the inconsistency of Joe Klein is enough to give you whiplash. Klein was cautiously for the war before he was dead set against it. He was against the surge before admitting it succeeded. Now he seems to be embracing neocon conspiracies in which Jews control the American military for the good of Israel. The whole thing is worth reading but here’s a starter:
1. When asked what he meant by the term “divided loyalties,” Klein claims, “I did not mean to imply that they were disloyal to the United States.” But, in fact, he did. Here is what Klein wrote:
The notion that we could just waltz in and inject democracy into an extremely complicated, devout and ancient culture smackedâ€”still smacksâ€”of neocolonialist legerdemain. The fact that a great many Jewish neoconservativesâ€”people like Joe Lieberman and the crowd over at Commentaryâ€”plumped for this war, and now for an even more foolish assault on Iran, raised the question of divided loyalties: using U.S. military power, U.S. lives and money, to make the world safe for Israel.
The terms “divided loyalties” and “dual loyalties” have a particular meaning and context; for Klein to use it as he did reveals his belief that Jewish neoconservatives are more loyal to Israel than they are to America. And that is a pernicious and despicable charge. Klein should not compound his calumny with dishonesty.
The article continues to provide more evidence that Klein is losing it with regard to the jooos! With all this anti-semitic paranoia — in addition to his anti-Christian ranting, hypocrisy, and Obama cheer-leading, I wonder how long Time can continue to employ this guy.
