Database of liberal funders by David Horowitz, whose book suggesting that politics is war to the finish is popular with Karl Rove, Tom Delay, and others. If are drawing up a database of those who are, by innuendo, Terrorists in Disguise, I have any number of names, as yet unlisted in Horowitz's database, I would be willing to denounce for a small sum. These are the crypto-lberals , who are too scared of reprisal to take a public stand against the new McCarthyism, or who donate only in secret. Surely, if we are to have a lynching, we should lynch them as well. In fact, David, let's start with the meek, as Jesus suggested, since they are the least likely to resist.
Here, to put his latest strategem in context, is Horowitz on The Art of Political War:
Politics is a war of position. In war there are two sides: friends and enemies. Your task is to define yourself as the friend of as large a constituency as possible compatible with your principles, while defining your opponent as the enemy whenever you can. The act of defining combatants is analogous to the military concept of choosing the terrain of battle. Choose the terrain that makes the fight as easy for you as possible.
What is at issue, obviously, is not one party or another, but democracy. The word treason gets thrown around. About time we started talking more seriously about generosity, love of neighbor, forgiveness, and projects that unite us across the wounds being driven so callously into the body politic for low and despicable ends. Those men and women of timid goodwill, of all political pursuasions, the Sleepwalkers, who think it will all turn out fine if they keep a low profile, shame on you. Time to double up on the funding and the effort, whatever your political stripe, so long as we agree on one another's right to be wrong.
