Once Vidal's Dauphin, Now Cosmic Stardust!

Christopher Hitchens has departed the mortal coil. He used to to be a true anti-imperialist but ended as a supporter of Imperialism. Unlike other ex leftists however Hitch held on to a lot of his radical views and didn't disown his past (like Martin Amis did). But does this balance out his support for the slaughter in Iraq? Sean Fenley pens a critical obituary.

Good ole Hitch is gone, once one of the most prescient and incisive critics of American imperialism — he cheerled for it — during the abominable administration of George W. Bush. Still a record as impressive as his should not be eviscerated, by one conspicuously and egregiously recognizable mistake. Estimates as high as a million dead [1], have been recorded, though, and he put himself in league with some very dark-hearted and malignant folks. [2]

And, indeed, one wonders about this so-called war against Islamofascism, and how much of it is legitimate — and how much of it, is just for kindling for the MIC! [3] And also, of course, how much of it, is just for scaring the shit out of folks! Enemies don’t just appear from the firmament, they (typically) have to be prefabricated, trumped up and/or invented out of whole cloth! [4] But, then again, you’d probably consider this the kind of thinking that earned — your former examplar — the “dignified” and “distinguished” title of crackpot! [5]
