re: #86 Charles

It’s the new right-wing political correctness. You’re not even allowed to quote from commies, ever. Or it proves you’re trying to destroy America.

That’s not exactly what happened here, is it? She didn’t merely quote him (and approvingly) but she said he was one of her two favorite political philosophers.

Those are two different things.

Now if Karl Rove had said Hitler was one of his two favorite political philosophers and quoted him approvingly you would be outraged and demanding his resignation.

And so would I.

It’s not whehter of not “commies” are bad, it’s that it’s never cool to admire mass murderers.

Is that actually an unsettled question for you or others here?
