Liberal journalist makes fun of Palin for saying she gets inspiration from C.S. Lewis
(Note, December 10: see correction and follow-up here.)
Richard Wolffe, who is from Britain, so he has even less excuse, evidently didn’t know that C.S. Lewis was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. He thought he was only a writer of a “series of kids’ books.” So who’s the one who is so dumb and ignorant he ought to crawl away and hide? The story is at The Daily Caller (via Michelle Malkin).
Daniel S. writes:
C. S. Lewis was one of my favorite authors (along with J. R. R. Tolkien) as a boy, and he remains a favorite into my adulthood. The Chronicles of Narnia series I devoured then, and his theological and spiritual writings are among my favorites now. The fact that a self-righteous liberal talking head like Richard Wolffe has never read C. S. Lewis is not surprising, being that Lewis was a proponent of Christian traditionalism and opponent of modern liberalism. I find, generally, despite their pretenses to intellectualism, most liberals have read little and just parrot whatever their particular gurus hand down to them. Honestly, are we to believe that a man like Wolffe has read C. S. Lewis, much less Hegel, Kant, Aristotle, Cicero, Hobbes, Machiavelli, Charles Dickens, Dante, and other recognized writers of the Western canon?
