Wingnut Historical Analogy of the Day


If you happen to be a confederate apologist like Robert Stacy McCain, about the only lesson you’re willing to take away from the Civil War is that collective punishment is an acceptable tactic, so long as approving references to Sherman’s March aren’t construed as an endorsement of Sherman’s actual march.

You have to admire the ingenuity at work there. I suppose when Israel finishes leveling everything in Gaza that bears even a remote connection to Hamas and resumes its previous policy of merely throttling the territory with a relentless blockade, McCain will wipe the snot from his nose and inform us that a similar policy would have shown the Confederacy who was the boss of whom. Or perhaps he’ll insist that the Palestinians, like Emmett Till, simply had it coming.
