Points: How to Miss Them

Bush Administration, conservatism

John Hawkins of Right Wing News is a little behind in his cultural literacy, and thereby misses the significance of the stabbed-in-the-back (dolchstosslegende) motif and its importance to the Third Reich.

    Off topic..but wierd…Today on MSMBC I saw a breaking news story banner that read( the link wasn’t active)… 5 contractors wounded in the U.S, Embassy, in Green zone….the story has just fallen off the face of the earth..no trace. Did anybody catch that same banner or hear anything about an incident at the Embassy in Baghdad?

    I see that Hawkins has updated his post to include a reply to this post. His response amounts to saying, “OF COURSE I knew about the dolchstosslegende! Everyone knows about that! I just don’t see how a cartoon depicting a soldier being stabbed in the back by a democratically-elected government has anything to do with it!”
