The New PC

A few years ago I would have been absolutely certain that an article titled "The Myth of the New Anti-Semitism" would appear in a right-wing magazine. No left-wing magazine would dare touch that.

But The Nation just published it.

Roger L. Simon does a fine job tackling it, and I only want to add one thing.

The Nation is suffused with political correctness. Thatís annoying, but I'll take it any day of the week over the deliberate whitewashing of racism on the rise. Jews just arenít protected by political correctness anymore. Who would have thought, before September 11, that this would happen? Certainly not me.
