Remembrances of blogs past….

This blog used to be one of my very favorites, but I stopped reading after he left Asia. Today I stumbled upon it again, and was reminded of just how funny and original Harry is. (This post in particular had me laughing. There’s lots more.)

You must not have gotten the memo, laughing at Harry’s post is forbidden. Kos has condemned it as beyond the Pale and holds it up as proof that conservatives want to kill liberals.

And no, he’s not kidding:

This is not a joke. This is the rising tide of eliminationist language that I’ve seen for a lot of years on the right. It starts as chuckles among unformed or unaware or unprocessed minds, and can quickly metastasize into action. In a metaphorical sense it already has, with the cutthroat way Republicans do business in the political arena. Then it turns into jokes that reflect some wishful rage with a wink and a nod. From there it’s just a hop and a skip and a jump to calling Democrats “cockroaches” that need to be “stamped out.”

Oh my. That is utterly over the top. Can’t these people take a joke? To refer to Harry’s harmless post as “eliminationst…” Well, what can one say? I’m a liberal, and I usually like Kos. But we all have to be able to laugh at ourselves.

Oh… my… god. That is such an extreme overreaction from the Kos site it makes Harry’s post even more amusing.

I read Harry as he updates (the site has been in my RSS reader since he was in HK) and I honestly can’t say I have a truly clear sense of his politics.

I’m completely baffled about what set off the alarmism. Far-right eliminationist?? WTF?

It’s nothing short of deranged. As a leftie, I’m ashamed at this gross over-reaction.
