As most of you know, Front Page/NewsReal (and therefore, David Horowitz) got drawn into the Phyllis Chesler-Naomi Wolf battle. Partly because Jamie Glazov wrote an essay for NewsReal supporting Chesler’s position, and partly because Naomi Wolf actually wrote to Front Page, and asked them to remove Glazov’s article—for criticizing her. Chutzpah. And Glazov, like a gentleman, responded. (Yes, Glazov overstates his case just a smidge, particularly in the first essay. But he makes some crucial points.)
Cynthis Yockey has a lovely piece on Glazov; he is, indeed, standing up for oppressed women in Muslim countries, and shockingly few people are doing it these days. Yockey on Glazov. (Yeah; she pulls out the big guns. The Eric Hoffer comparisons. Which, if you know Cynthia . . .)
There is an alternative that Ms. Wolf should consider: if you don’t want your ideas to be discarded as half-baked . . . well, finish ‘em up in the oven before you publish them. Try that thinking thing, and people won’t regard you as thoughtless.
