On trial beside Mladic in The Hague is
a disturbing case of infectious idiocy and denial which
the left can no longer ignore If people who claim
to care about justice and humanity
cannot resist what looks to me like
blatant genocide denial, we find
ourselves in a very dark place. By
George Monbiot, The Guardian (UK), May 21, 2012
If, like truth, the lie had but one face, we would be on better
terms. For we would accept as certain the opposite of what the
liar would say. But the reverse of truth has a hundred thousand
faces and an infinite field.
There seems to be a kind of leftist monsterphilia around.
The same people who embraced Slobodan Milošević, Hosni
Mubarak and Moammar Qaddafi now embrace Bashar al-Assad,
again loudly protesting against American imperialist designs
against this public benefactor.
