12. that neocon worm Noah Rothman (a Glenn Beck fav) is on Morning Joe pushing that scaremongering line

 

along with claptrap like railing against re-regulation of anything that is a sacred cow of his. If we start to embrace his vision of societal arrangement (an encourage people like him just because they sometimes think Trump is shit on certain things) we are absolutely fucked as a party and a nation.

A sample of Noah's tosh

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST JULY 01, 2019
Noah Rothman | Episode 43
This week, Glenn is joined by author Noah Rothman who wrote the book, "Unjust: Social Justice and the Unmaking of America" to discuss the rise of the violent American Left and its ties to Russia.



Watch NBC political analyst Anand Giridharadas push back against right-wing hyperbole about "identity politics"

Giridharadas: "I think it is so fascinating that we are having a conversation about the problems of identity politics at a table with five men." (Rothman is doing his usual gaslighting on social justice)

ROTHMAN: The notion of the right to be believed, which was something that Hillary Clinton endorsed with regard to the claims of sexual assault victims, was perceived to be addressing a historical grievance and it is rooted fundamentally in intersectional theory and social justice theory which holds that the United States has such misogyny ingrained in its institutions that they cannot adjudicate claims like this, because they do not recognize --

SCARBOROUGH: Noah, when you say the right to be believed, you mean that -- what? What are you saying?

ROTHMAN: That a sexual assault survivor deserves not just impartiality but deference to their claims, which is antithetical to the notion of justice. And we had some high-profile examples of why that was, you know, unjust, but the ones that never make the headlines were the students who were made victims by the Title IX reforms under the Obama era. Both victims -- both accusers and accused, who were deprived of their Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights as a result of a perception that American judicial institutions cannot fundamentally adjudicate these claims fairly as a result of historical grievances dating back thousands of years. This is the kind of thing that I think is a conceptual misunderstanding of what the American idea is.

SCARBOROUGH: So Anand, are you here because you were the co-author of this book? Is that right? I'm joking. Your turn.

ANAND GIRIDHARADAS (NBC POLITICAL ANALYST): I think it is so fascinating that we are having a conversation about the problems of identity politics at a table with five men.
