Wolf Howling: Obama, Criminalizing Politics & Thinking The Unthinkable raises the question of whether the American left is preparing to put the Bush administration on trial for "war crimes". The left's ongoing descent into victim politics and the attempt to criminalize opposition to their death cult is frightening to anyone who remembers the conditions for a free society and for duly elected historical actors who would think to bring new and liberating paradigms in international law into existence. The left, of course, want the world to be ruled by Harvard law school versions of Saddam Hussain: you can't do that, nothing new, too risky; just keep paying for the parade of victims of the present system.
Meanwhile U.S. News & World Report is apparently erasing many comments from its site, because readers are making unflattering remarks about this O-holy sign

Only a "Black" candidate can today have that kind of sign. Even if, say, the Nobel Oracle, Al Gore, were back in Presidential politics and had one like it people would mock him to death. But all those with nostalgia for a more ritually compact and Gnostic culture represented through the highest office of the secular state find Obama appealing because his victimary blackness allows him to claim a cultural centrality that no member of the race deemed free can any longer claim without allegations of megalomania. But African-Americans cannot be denied their "FDR" or "JFK" moment, even if that moment has passed for the society in the vanguard of human freedom. This is how we "liberate" people in the fallen postmodern age of tribal culture cult.
