Bill Kristol Isn’t a ‘Renegade Jew.’ Just a Sore Loser Throwing a Tantrum

No one in the conservative Commentariat has beaten up on poor Bill Kristol more than I during the past dozen years. I read David Horowitz’ excoriation of Kristol as a “renegade Jew” with chagrin; I respect David Horowitz  — and have spoken at his conferences on several occasions — and I reviewed admiringly his book A Point in Time.

But his choice of words was churlish. Kristol devotes considerable time to Jewish causes and genuinely identifies as a Jew, although his level of religious observance is low (as is David’s). Kristol certainly doesn’t think that he has reneged on his Jewish identity. But he is so absorbed in the cultish self-adoration of the neo-conservative clique, and so insecure about the perception of his manifold policy blunders (for example, his naive endorsement of the Arab Spring as near-equivalent to the American Founding), that his judgment of late has been dreadful. His third-party proposal will go nowhere.

    Bill Kristol needs to be chastened.
    He’s acting like an Obama tantrum baby.
    I still want to punch him in the face.

    Plenty of anti-Trump psychos in the comments there. How appropriate.

    You guys missed the biggest story of the day with Trump’s supreme court shortlist. Early indications are that it’s solid, and if that’s true, it will destroy the NeverTrump brigade. Still waiting for a detailed analysis of the list though. Quite possibly the most brilliant move by Trump yet this election season.

    As usual, Spengler speaks the truth.
