I am struck by the intellectual cowardice and dishonesty by some on the right, particularly when the same moralists hold themselves up as superior to the smear merchants and scoundrels on the left whose libels and lies mirror the behavior of the newly deputized Perry posse.
The recent nasty and creepy flamewar that broke out as a result of my exposing the Aga Khan/Perry curriculum is an extreme example of the hubris on the right. They seem to be channeling that which they pretend to hold in the utmost contempt -- intellectual dishonesty despite the evidence, the concretes.
So unhinged and counter-intuitive are the Perrybots, they make the Paulians look ......... rational.
The big hitters in the right blogosphere criticizing my exposing the Khan/Perry curriculum cited an obscure blogger whose entire premise was false. The blogger used one teacher's lesson plan in a failed attempt to debunk my take on the entire curriculum as posted here.
We pride ourselves on being better in the blogosphere than the self-possessed elites in the mainstream media. We try hard every day to get it right. And when we don't, we correct the record. Right? Not.
Some of us do -- I stand on my record. And Stein, OTOH, represents the worst in blogging. Wrong and then wrong again and again. Digging himself deeper into a hole and then ......... keeps digging.
As for the big blogs that picked up on this pisher's mistake -- shame on you. I enocourage readers to study the curriculum here and make your own informed determination. No one should tell you what to think.
Stein wrote me, trying to wiggle out of his hole. Read the exchange here.
