Boys, It’s Time to Enlist! by | Sep 29, 2007 | Stress Blog | 14 comments From the man who brought you My Negro Problem–and Ours : Neocon heroÃ‚Â and Giuliani foreign policy advisor Norman Podhoretz will be interviewed by Charles Pena Sunday on C-Span. 14 Comments phil on September 30, 2007 at 7:11 am Great post!!! This just proves that this guy is a racist (and an elitist) who shouldn’t be accusing anyone of anything, much less anti-semitism. Why doesn’t he and all his relatives and buddies renounce their US citizenship,join the IDF and leave the rest of us alone? Benedict Arnold would be proud of this man!! He is truly a traitor to the US. Scott on September 30, 2007 at 11:15 am I hope Pena thrashes him. Matt on September 30, 2007 at 6:15 pm All I can say is that every single person who believes what Podhoretz believes should take be able to fight whatever war they wish to engage in. However, it is my contention that they should not be funded by our government nor fight in the name of any American other than themselves. Besides, Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™d all be fighting for honor and glory so that should be sufficient payment enough, right? Or, should I say more blunty take all of your ignorant asses over there and YOU play the IED lottery. SteveC on September 30, 2007 at 7:45 pm Did Irving Krystal die recently? I was working while listening to A Jones today and thought I heard him refer to Irving as having recently died. Didn’t see anything online………. Michael on September 30, 2007 at 7:57 pm Nice Anti-Facist! I’ll admit that there are some things Pod has written in the past that are interesting, but only from a Brooklyn/New York historical point of view. But generally his work is angry hate, stemming from being pushed around at a young age and feeling guilt over being here in the states while the holocaust occurred over in Europe. On the special he said “he didn’t want Iraq and Iran to be allies”. Antiwar Aficionado on September 30, 2007 at 8:04 pm I couldn’t read that Podhoretz piece. The title cracked me up though. Antiwar Aficionado on September 30, 2007 at 8:11 pm Also, why am I not suprised that an Ann Coulter google ad would appear on a thread with “My Negro Problem” and Norman Podhoretz on it? Bob on October 1, 2007 at 9:53 am I just finished the Podhoretz book and it was pretty stupid. He’s just a sick old paranoid fart who happens to still command the butt-kissing of a bunch of fellow psychos like W.F. Buckley and everyone else at NR. The thing is, he insults all these people and yet they still turn and brown-nose him. He also gets into the whole “Pat Buchanan is a Jew-hater” thing. It’s typical Commentary-esque blather. I was hoping for some real “blow them to smithereens” Podhoretz type stuff, but it never materialized. I think the most interesting thing is that he think Bush is an incredibly great president. It’s really weird. Matt on October 1, 2007 at 10:28 am Phil: “Benedict Arnold would be proud of this man!! He is truly a traitor to the US.” While I do appreciate your sentiments letâ€™s not forget that Arnold was a very good general in the Continental Army before he turned traitor. Nothing remotely close can be said for Pod.

Scott on October 1, 2007 at 3:20 pm Mud: Yes, the crazy drunk guys still do the football show on KAOS on Sundays. I heard ’em yesterday. mudshark on October 2, 2007 at 2:19 am hahaha, cool. maybe I’ll be able to catch them some weekend when I’m home long enough to hear them. been stupid here lately. phil on October 2, 2007 at 8:07 am Matt, My apologies to the military memory of Benedict. Reminds me of something Jim Trafficant said when one of his constituents referred to all Congressmen as prostitutes. Trafficant seized the moment and said that the comment was an insult to all the hookers out there, to be compared to lowly Congressmen. Stevec, If Kristol died, it would be tough to tell the difference.
