Rarely have I seen so much guilt by association underpinned by so many lies in such a small space as Max Blumenthal's McCarthyite smear on Arianna Huffington's Post of a Moonbat post by Lowell Ponte about the hypocrisy of the left. Ponte's idea was that for the left Communist socialists are good, national socialists are bad (and of course they're not even socialists). This innocent send up which took no position on the Nazi who was fired and also made very clear that he was a Nazi is converted by Blumenthal into Horowitz's "support" for a Nazi ("Horowitz has taken up his cause,") which is a shameless lie. Blumenthal then contrives to drag Christopher Hitchens into the mess he has concocted from absolutely nothing because Christopher agreed to be a speaker on a trip I organized (the trip btw has been cancelled). Blumenthal then drags in Debbie Schlussel who wrote a negative piece on the late Marla Ruziska (which I hadn't read when it was posted) neglecting to mention that I responded by writing (with Ben Johnson) a long piece on Marla Ruzicka myself. Blumenthal doesn't mention this piece because it refutes his smear. Arianna has apparently joined the bottom feeders in the political wars: no standards, no ethics, no shame.
No surprise either, since Arianna has hooked her star to the Soros network and tapped into Brock's sleaze site for blogger Max. Next thing you know he'll turn out to be a chip off Sid Blumenthal's crooked timber.
