Opiate of the rich and famous

Julie Burchill goes after the peacenuggets with great gusto. So many good quotes:

Surely this is the most self-obsessed anti-war protest ever. NOT IN MY NAME! That's the giveaway. Who gives a stuff about their wet, white, western names?


On one hand the selflessness and internationalism of the soldiers; on the other the Whites-First isolationism of the protesters.


NOT IN MY NAME! is western imperialism of the sneakiest sort, putting our clean hands before the freedom of an enslaved people.

What can I say? In MY name I say "Thank you, Ms. Burchill, for saying what I have been struggling for words to express." (Via Tim Blair.)
