There is something that can rightly be called neoconservatism that’s overbearing and abusive by nature. It tries to establish its principles by acting as if everything’s already been settled and yelling at people who seem to have doubts. An excess of bile spills over into all one’s views, it seems. Veteran neocon-basher Paul Gottfried has come up with a really extraordinary example of neocon bigotry here in my home town newspaper: Hating the Krauts. Be sure to read the New York Post piece he’s complaining about. It beggars description.
