Warren Kinsella has a fetish for denunciations that would make Joe Stalin proud. After spending the summer trying to bring down The God's on McLelland at MyBlagh (with no apparent effect), he's turned his attention to this poor sucker who, during a discussion at Cherniak's place concerning Canadian Jews and the Liberal Party, wrote:
The Liberal Party is stronger without these violent Zionists in our party. I am glad for them to cease influencing our foreign policy so we are free to promote Canadian values of peace. It amazes me that this community is so absurdly selfish. The only issue that matters to them is the defense of a "state" that survives on the blood of innocent people. Shameful.
Over-heated language, true, but I am afraid the writer has a point. Too many in the Canadian Jewish Community are willing to ignore Israel's wildly disproportionate response to Hezbollah's provocations, and are even willing to demand from non-Jewish Canadians (especially non-Jewish Liberals) that we look the other way when Israel commits war-crimes, kills Canadian civilians, or even kills Canadian soldiers. Frankly, it is selfish to expect us to put aside reason and judgment and get behind a war back in their Homeland. Furthermore, given the way this war has turned out, I think it is perfectly reasonable to ask who the REAL friends of Israel are: those of us who advised caution and proportionality, and nuts like Kinsella who shrieked out "Bombs Away!" even as the wheels came off?
Unfortunately, because of the gentleman's position within the Liberal Party, Kinsella and Co. have been able to screw a fairly abject apology out of him. However, as far as i'm concerned it is Kinsella who needs to ask forgiveness. He should be explaining why blind support for Israel in the Summer War was such a great idea. Instead, he runs around like some Commisar from the Soviet Republic of Buttslavia.
In any case, this denunciation thing seems like alot of fun. I think I'll give it a try!
I DENOUNCE THEE WARREN KINSELLA! I DENOUNCE THEE!
Ooooh! An almost erotic thrill runs up and down my spine! I see why Warren gets such a kick out of it.
