Ed Rothstein (the only civilized brain on the NYTimes staff) says it better than I do because he is calm and academic. He discusses a recent Laurie Anderson Lincoln Center performance piece. Ms. Anderson claims her piece deals with “taboo subjects” — 'matters that, she affirms, people are afraid to speak out about'?
And what is this taboo truth? It is the subject of how terrible war is.
Only a delusional Lefty, under the most self-dishonest conditions, could ever think that this is a taboo subject. What is wrong with Lefties that they have to think they are an oppressed, brave minority speaking the truth when every single god damn one of them has the same identical, ignorant, unthinking, idiotic idea? I hear this supposedly taboo idea every day on NPR, on mainstream media and in a dozen blogs and two dozen pieces of printed media.
How can something fastened with steel wires into the heart and stuffed surgically into the brain of every Lefty be a "taboo"?
Sorry to rant. I just can't stomach this absurdity of Lefty taboo truth. I've heard this whine for 50 years with Lefties claiming they can't get their ideas published because of capitalist media control. The reality is I never went a day without being inundated with their nonsense in print.
