Suppose the New York Times published an editorial advocating the assassination of Tony Blair. There would be massive outrage, from the left and right. But when the Guardian publishes an editorial advocating the assassination of George Bush, there is nothing above a whisper:
On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod’s law dictates he’ll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr – where are you now that we need you?
Via Andrew Sullivan. The Labour party, which is loosely affiliated with the Guardian, has always been socialist. However, that socialism has usually been democratic. It seems it’s nearing Castro-esque militantism. This is disturbing, disgusting, and morally repugnant. While I’m Democrat here in the U.S., there is no doubt in my mind that I’d be a Tory in England.
