A chill wind blows.
In light of the horrific murder of a security guard by an alleged extremist at the U.S. Holocaust Museum, liberal pontificator Paul Krugman of the New York Times is the latest unhinged pundit to join in the left’s campaign to silence conservatives and libertarians.
His latest column is filled with lies and distortions about the discredited, now-withdrawn Department of Homeland Security report on “rightwing extremism” that labeled all conservatives, libertarians, and returning veterans as potential terrorists and directed law enforcement officials across the country to act.
Shame on him.
Krugman should remember that the hate-crimes legislation that the left has been hysterically demanding for years could one day be used against him.
(I had a vigorous discussion yesterday about the shooting and the left’s reaction to it with progressive talker Thom Hartmann on his show yesterday.)
