Neil Clarke ticks all the boxes on the Crazy Leftie profile sheet in this piece, which is bound to become legendary, and which abounds in such gems as "The true heroes in Iraq are those who have resisted the invasion of their country". But apart from the usual silliness, he has provoked commenter jeremychester to produce this, which I liked.
George: Neil, we have a resistance group looking for our support.
Neil: What do they do?
G: Well they're particulary fond of kidnapping academics and slitting their throats.
N: Hmm. What else?
G: Says here they're also partial to stoning homosexuals and adulterers to death.
N: Well, I'm not sure...
G: They like to disembowel trade unionists, and, if at all possible, their families.
N: I think that's probably...
G: Says they're also anti-American..
N (brightening up considerably)Then we should give them our full support!
It should also be noted that the comment string is almost entirely against Clark.
At Harry's Place, they're terse and expecting an article from Nick Griffin. Norm has so far said nothing, but I'm sure he will.
