The other day, I passed along a particularly offensive post by Michael Goldfarb to Glenn Greenwald. The comment by Goldfarb was disgusting even by his low standards, and I am glad that Glenn took some time to take the Weekly Standard’s OD Original Dungeonmaster to task. What is so disturbing about it is that Goldfarb is just glibly contemplating the possible positive outcome of killing a bunch of civilians. Those are not the thoughts of a healthy mind, notwithstanding the fact that we know from past experience that their deaths will serve as a rallying cry to inspire more martyrs. In other words, vile and counter-productive- a genuine twofer.
If twisted folks like Goldfarb are an example of the next generation of conservatives, then the Republican party has more to worry about than a disparity in conservative media.
