I Like James Delingpole

I like British writer and pundit James Delingpole because he says stuff like this:

“When a liberal-leftie wishes death on his right-wing enemies, that’s exactly what he’d like to do them given the opportunity.

“When a conservative/libertarian does so, it’s more likely a figure of speech.

“How do I know this? Well for a start, look at the left’s track record: Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Mao’s China.

“There are no right wing equivalents. That’s because being right wing (by which I mean the conservative/libertarian school which believes in small government) is about leaving people alone. Not about controlling them – and then killing them if they show signs of not wishing to be controlled.”

Indeed.
