Thomas Lifson, The American Thuggee
A year ago Thomas Lifson, editor of The American Thinker, accused me of using an anti-Semitic code word in an article I had submitted to him. The word was “neoconservative,” which I had used in the context of describing the people who support President Bush’s pro-democracy doctrine, the very same people who write a continuing series of articles about themselves and their ideology with such titles as “The Neoconservative Convergence,” and “The Neoconservative Persuasion.” When I pointed out the absurdity and offensiveness of the anti-Semitism charge and challenged him to justify it, he cut me off, ending any further editorial relationship between us. Here’s the account I wrote about it at the time.
