The Mustache of Freedumb

Think Progress » Friedman Blasts Liberals, Claims They Believe Arabs Are ‘Incapable Of Democracy’
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman was one of media’s most vocal advocates for the invasion of Iraq. On Feb. 5, 2003, he said, “I think I get this war, and, on balance, I think it is a risk worth taking.” On March 9, 2003, he added, “Regime change in Iraq is the right choice for Iraq, for the Middle East and for the world. Mr. Bush is right about that.”

Yesterday on NPR’s On Point radio show, Friedman began attacking liberals when a caller asked him about his early support for the invasion of Iraq. He sarcastically said that next time, he’ll “be a better liberal” and “will view the prospect of Arabs forging a democracy as utterly impossible. They’re incapable of democracy.”

You'd best get used to it, Tom. You're going to be getting a lot of such guff for the next twenty years or so. And it is going to be rather unseemly for you to complain too much, seeing as how you are a whole lot better off than those killed and maimed by your cheerleading.
