One major reason for the media in this country being dead is that there is no expiration date on the careers of former Bush-regime dead-enders, no matter how repeatedly wrong and ridiculous they are.

So far, so good. Jebus, driftglass, whaddya gotta go and get all worked up over...
The liberal scorn for nationhood and refusal to adapt immigration policy to changing circumstances enables the rise of extremism in the West.
Oh. Ok. Never mind. So it's the god damn hippies who are to blame for Trump. Again
And with that, as they used to say in Edinburgh, gardyloooooooo!
...Trump’s executive order has unleashed chaos, harmed lawful U.S. residents, and alienated potential friends in the Islamic world. Yet without the dreamy liberal refusal to recognize the reality of nationhood, the meaning of citizenship, and the differences between cultures, Trump would never have gained the power to issue that order.
Liberalism and nationhood grew up together in the 19th century, mutually dependent. In the 21st century, they have grown apart—or more exactly, liberalism has recoiled from nationhood. The result has not been to abolish nationality, but to discredit liberalism.
When liberals insist that only fascists will defend borders, then voters will hire fascists to do the job liberals won’t do...
Uncanny how nothing that Republican mobs or Republican leaders or Republican shit-peddling frauds ever say or do is the fault of Republicans.
