It is a very detestable, grotesque argument that has never been made with so little evidence or reason.
I don’t have much to add to this appropriately purple reaction to Herr Pantload’s latest trip to the Diaper Genie. I will, however, draw attention to Goldberg’s atrocious implication that John Carlos and Tommie Smith are somehow responsible for the massacre of Israeli wrestlers and their coaches at the ’72 Munich Games:
China is using the Olympics to paper over the brutality of its repressive regime, just as Hitler did in 1936. In 1972, Palestinian terrorists — grateful for 1968’s lesson in the propaganda value of Olympics media attention — slaughtered Israeli athletes. Nations are political entities, so you can’t take the politics out of national rivalries.
And you can’t take the doughnuts out of Jonah Goldberg’s hands, lest he jam them back into his pants again.
But seriously. That just might be the most abject stream of fuckuppery ever to appear under the Doughboy’s byline.
