Insult !

Mr. Richard Cohen goes after Republicans with a hateful slur while writing an article trashing Mitt Romney:

....And in a letter written in 1994 to the Log Cabin Republicans, he looked forward to the day when gays and lesbians could serve "openly and honestly in our nation's military." That day will not come should he become president, he has said recently. Peering into the homophobic heart of GOP primary voters, Romney now thinks gays ought to stay in the closet. He has changed his mind.

F*ck you, Cohen. How dare you use a general slur like "homophobic" against everyone who dares to thwart your will and vote in the Republican primaries? Can I expect you use the phrase "terror-appeasing" to describe every Democratic voter that trudges to the polls to vote for their favorite surrender-monkey?

Making this all the more unbelieveable is that Cohen has complained about being called an anti-Semite after writing a few columns on the need for Israel to
cease to exist. Yet he turns around and charges, with no apparent irony(or basis in fact), all Republicans with hate crimes.

Here's his whining about the backlash he suffered, incidentally:

So it comes as a surprise that has the force of a mugging to be accused of aiding the very people I so hate -- of being an abettor of something called "The New Anti-Semitism."
....Certain prominent American Jews -- the historian Tony Judt, the playwright Tony Kushner, the poet Adrienne Rich and I, among others -- were charged with aiding anti-Semitism with our writings. We were, in other words, enablers. As if that was not bad enough, Shulamit Reinharz, a Brandeis University professor and a columnist for a Jewish weekly, dispensed totally with Rosenfeld's qualification. She told the
Boston Globe that all of us mentioned in the AJC report are just plain anti-Semites.

Well, Cohen, it has hit me with the force of a mugging that I am labeled as a "homophobe" because I share different views than you about overt homosexuality's place in society. Seems like you can't take it, yet continue to dish it out furiously. If you don't like labels, than don't apply them to others, especially folk you do not know, or apprently even care to understand. Or does your left-of-center hatred of all things rightward simply blind you to the world you are creating with your incindenary columns?

Read the article - he bashes poor Mitt Romney for "flip-flops" that Hillary Clinton has been commiting on a daily basis since she began running for president (in 2000?) but apparently gets a pass for... not to mention the potshots he takes at Romney's commitment to his religion.
Cohen is pathetic, and as I said in the post linked above, more than a bit sick, and more than a bit racist....

UPDATE: If Richard Cohen wasn't such a left-wing self-loathing Jew, maybe he'd have the courage to go after this guy. Based on his comments, he's one of the people you "so hate". Or is that hatred only reserved for American conservatives?
