A Little Local Hitler

Today is Wednesday, 7 February 2007.

The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights is a curious and scurrilous little extremist group run by William Donohue, Ph.D. Donohue has no discernible political influence. Instead, he makes a living by specializing, like Ann Coulter, in wild, defamatory statements which get him invited on right-wing talk shows to spew hate.

The following, from MSNBC’s Scarborough Country (8 December 2004) is exemplary of his positions: “Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews [my emphasis] who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It's not a secret, okay? And I'm not afraid to say it".

Apparently Donohue believes a good Catholic is one who spouts the Hitler line that “The Jew” controls the media.

In his latest foray, he demands that the John Edwards campaign fire two bloggers. He said, “John Edwards is a decent man who has had his campaign tarnished by two anti-Catholic vulgar trash-talking bigots”.

I don’t know about the two bloggers, but an anti-Semite such as Donohue certainly qualifies as a “vulgar trash-talking bigot”.

I happen to like Pandagon (http://www.pandagon.net). Donohue can blow it out his a$$, this is the now-standard "Swift-boating" we've come to expect from the far-right.
