Pol Pot's apology

There is a lot of talk about the self-renunciation of Charles Johnson. He doesn't get off that easy (he's going straight to hell just for this, and there are numerous other examples). Johnson is one of those middle-aged, middle-class Americans who were instantly transformed into virulent Muslim/Arab haters by September 11, a transformation that speaks to their gullibility - buying the Official Story at face value - and innate racism/stupidity - blaming a billion people, and threatening violence against them, all for the work of 19 and a guy in a cave who used to be an American employee, and perhaps still is. One day Johnson woke up and realized that he was part of a group of morons. A semi-apology doesn't make him any less gullible, racist, or stupid.

The fact he doesn't get excused for being a monster doesn't mean that his list of morons isn't a good one. It is important to note that the anti-science crowd is the same as the racist, homophobic, misogynist, fascist, conservative, Republican crowd. The Bloggers For Exxon can look to one side and see Rush Limbaugh, and look to the other side and see Glenn Beck. If you lie down with dogs you get fleas. Don't forget - you can't sit this one out. Not to decide seals the fate of everybody. Either you side with the experts, or you side with Big Business interests and this rag-tag host of douchebags who hold all the usual 'conservative' opinions.
