Gazing ever so briefly in the mirror, Churchill and his sycophants see no evil. Meanwhile, his critics want to ensure that he speaks no more evil. Both sides have become amazingly irrational and spectacularly wrong.
It seems like nearly everyone has chimed in on the hottest issue of the day… except the acerbic wits at the Rocky Mountain Progressive Network. With frequent biting commentary on most any news tidbit of political or cultural significance in Colorado, the Democrat Party-affiliated RMPN has approached the Churchill controversy with startling silence. While most of their Democrat friends in the Capitol were at least willing to condemn the substance of Churchill’s rancorous essay, RMPN has skirted the issue altogether.
Perhaps they would condemn the professor’s statements but defend his right to continuing employment. Perhaps they would hold him up as an imagined First Amendment martyr. Perhaps they secretly cherish his America-hating views. Perhaps they might agree with Governor Owens but are afraid to admit it. Until the RMPN speaks, we are left to speculate.
