'Tis an interesting paradox, this notion of being tolerant of intolerance. Not for me. It's akin to false equivalency and cousin to a corruption of compromise. That is to say, you can't compromise with absolute evil. Trump is accused of molesting at least a dozen women ... am I supposed to meet him halfway, and say molesting 6 is okay? I think not.

Then there's the matter of people taking people like me to task for being "obsessed" with politics. Well, to them I say, if you aren't angry about what's going on, and you aren't depressed that so many of your countrymen are ignorant, indifferent or willfully blind to all that, and you aren't compelled to speak up about the casual dismissal of facts and the possible death of democracy, I'd say it's you that has the problem. Am I being hyperbolic? I think not.

Sometimes a lack of obsession is immoral. 

Extremism in the defense of liberty is no Vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue. 

Said by a guy who sometimes got it right, or Right, Barry Goldwater. 

As regards meeting halfway, I sometimes think the UN would have suggested that the Nazis negotiate with Jews, split the difference at three million, and call it a day. As Mr. Cordle points out, it doesn't work that way. 

Though this is perhaps more germane to Ron's latest post, in this day and age one can be objective or impartial but absolutely not both. They are mutually exclusive now. Unfortunately, most mainstream journalists choose impartiality because they think it helps their credibility. It doesn't, as Murrow could have told them.

Veteran blogger acts as

Human Toxic Seaweed

Wraps around

Propellors

Paddles

Keels

Oars

Arms

Legs

No smooth sailing

Only aqueous roadblacks

Clogs up the works

Everywhere

And says

The first Amendment

Guarantees the Right

To clog

To interrupt

To make up stories

About Jews eating pork

And having illicit affairs

How fun
