Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Because he's angry too he must be accurate ? - now you go beyond parody :-)

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.

accurate?  you mean like a Swiss watch?

or does he reflect the mood, the Zeitgeist if you will, of his people?

on the second point, a definite "yes"

To this point, the most interesting aspect to the response to my diary is that no one except perhaps Ted seems to have bothered to READ the man.
If I'm wrong, tell me.


--Some small part of the body of work that so impressed Chomsky, Zinn and so many other luminaries of the thoughtful left?

The lack of any real support for your angry arguments, stevesim, is obvious. If you had any real ammo, you'd have fired it off. Nothing in your many comments supports your angry assertions, and I've read them all at least twice.

TBG, your gratuitous and unnecessary history lesson has so little to do with the question "So who pays for all this"? My head swims searching for any connection with Sharp Unless you're asserting that, as a taxpayer, he's as screwed as the rest of us. I'll grant that point. As well, it's equally hard to find a logical frame for the rest of your slashing attack other than a cynical refusal to accept the possibility that there might be good, honorable men out there, and some of them might even be Americans. That's a problem I've encountered before with your comments, but I set it aside because I respect your intellect.

But this time it's tough.
You treat us to a revelatory journey into arcane organizational trivia, and eventually reveal that-- Shazam! One of his donors has a bio that suggests a crooked financial history.
That's --it?
Jeez. Shades of Gene McCarthy. Sounds a lot like J. Edgar Hoover's elaborate decades-long search for evil in MLK's heart (or pants), turning up a used condom and a doubtful merit badge. Or all the years of frothing over Clinton's blow job- we all know such things rot your brain. Don't they? (Drool).

But, now that you put it all together for me,-- jeez. I should have tumbled to the plot right off. Stupid me. Somewhere under that single room in his small home, guarded faithfully by his single female assistant lies the headquarters of a vast, well-funded intercontinental PR plot, supported by dough from a crook who just barely escaped the slammer for securities fraud. Of course. Just the sort of thing Mr. Teflon would do.
A PR --or more properly, a psywar operation, an evil  Media Medusa that has used once again all the compliant, servile major media, but also has sucked in international leftist media from 15 countries (that I can count, from his site) and has flimflammed an incredible list of high-powered thinkers alive and dead.
Jeez. If the evil empire is this slick, this powerful, ---what can us miserable ordinaries do?

Think I'll just suck off the gas water heater.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
