Discover The Hackwork 

Discover the Network's charming blog, "Eliminationist Rhetoric Central", features a post that seems to be saying we should have Ward Churchill hanged. Wait, strike that "seems to be saying" -- they are demanding it outright. And about damn time! The poster is himself a professor at the University of Haifa, so he ought to know that Academic Freedom only goes so far -- and it certainly doesn't protect unpopular ideas!

Here are the relevant bits, awful writing partially expurgated, incomprehensible argument intact:
Comrades! The time has come to give Geoffrey Perry his rightful place in history. Perry is one of history’s great unsung heroes. His act of courage illustrates how the world once dealt with the pro-terror professors and "intellectuals" of the West and perhaps how it might deal with some members of the anti-Western Left today.


Lord Haw-Haw was the Ward Churchill of World War II.


Haw-Haw’s ass made a rapid recovery that allowed him to be hanged as a traitor later the next summer. Yes, Britain, the mother of all democracies, hanged traitors. It did not give them tenure at its universities.

And all in that oh-so-funny style that passes for "satirical" on the other side of the aisle. Seriously, Horowitz -- aren't you rich or powerful or something? Can't you buy better blogging than this? There aren't even any fucking links in that post! Back when you were a Stalinist you published Hunter Thompson and Pete Hamill and Sy Hersh and Adam Hochschild -- sure, they're commie fascist jihadist satanists according to your new ideological classification system, but at least they could string a meaningful sentence together!
