The Watchers

After Tommy Tompkins passionately held forth on Israel and Palestine in his blog, he got death threats for it. Keep your head up, Tommy. This is the same kind of Bushcroft-era McCarthyism visited on Hatem Bazian earlier this year. That folks would be so busy watching dissenters–to the point of videotaping anti-war rallies or scouring arts blogs for vaguely oppositional remarks–is just bananas. Back in the 80s we used to have two words for this: political correctness.
