Cal Thomas is full of it (again)!

In the Thursday June 14, 2012 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Perspectives page, Cal Thomas opines on ‘Why are Republicans the only ones called extreme?). NOTE: I believe that headline was written by MJS editors since it is different than the one on Thomas’ website which can be found here.

His opening shot:

Don’t you find it odd that the word extremism seems to apply only to conservative Republicans?

From someone who has a permanent seat on the left side of the aisle, who’s weathered the conservatives doing everything in their power to demonize the term liberal, who’s experienced the current right tossing off epithets of socialist or communist everytime I turn around, and who’s been the direct recipient of bigotry as a ‘Marxist Jew’…all I can say about Mr. Thomas is…I CALL BULLSH*T!

In closing, here’s one thing we agree on (which is why he is slandering the left in the first place):

Terminology often drives political discourse and those who control the terms often determine the outcome.

  1. Cal Thomas is so out of touch with reality that I no longer read beyond the headline of his column any more. I just roll my eyes and move on to the next item. I suggest that others follow suit.

    Cal Thomas is a cantankerous old curmudgeon who endlessly repeats tiresome, already-soundly-refuted right-wing talking points. If he really believes his own BS, he ought to wake up and take the pulse of the American populace. They don’t. Far more likely is it that he knows he’s full of it and is merely another well-paid mouthpiece for those who pull the media strings in our once-great nation.

    Ignore him. He’s irrelevant.
