re: #243 Sharmuta
Maybe not so much. Maybe its time to *consciously* look around and see who our allies are. We need not be 100% in accord with all opinions, but there are some opinions clearly out of the comfort zone. But the center, which I believe LGF firmly occupies, has a comfortable spectrum in and of itself.
For example, I believe it was Jimmah (and apologies if I am wrong) who said that s/he reads both LGF and Harry’s Place. I’m the same. Yes, they are of the left — social democrats. No, one need not accept all they say. But I’d be far more comfortable with most of them by my side in a fight than either the extreme left (antisemitic, pro-islamofascist, anti-democracy and racist in their lowered expectations of third world peoples) with whom they constantly battle or the extreme right (antisemitic/anti-Muslim, pro-nazi. anti-democracy, and racist in their lowered expectations of third world peoples) crowd with whom LGF is now battling.
I truly believe that the strength and moral high road is in the middle, center-right, center-left, or mixed by issue, as most people are. The trick is to get the center active; sitting on the fence is not centrist, it’s either ignorant or cowardly.
