Sauce For The Goose

Picking out Liberalism's sleaziest tactic takes some doing, but one of the contenders must be the way anyone who questions their witch hunting is themselves accused of owning a pointy hat, so that - to take a completely hypothetical example - a judge who criticises the prosecution of a 10 year old for hate crimes is himself accused of sympathising with the BNP.

It's a despicable and nasty tactic, even by their standards, but since they mention it, it looks like I'm not the only one to have noticed a certain coincidence of worldview between Liberals and a well-known third world activist:

During this period he has sounded almost indistinguishable from various left-wing blogs. In April 2004 he ranted about “big media,” describing them as “agents of deception and exploitation.” He said the war in Iraq “is making billions of dollars for the big corporations, whether it be those who manufacture weapons or reconstruction firms like Halliburton and its offshoot sister companies.” (Halliburton is, of course, the bête noir of anti-war bloggers.)
