Seattle Times Letters from the Lunatics

I read this nutjob letter to the editor on the Seattle Times web page.
More background, please

Jonah Goldberg and Charles Krauthammer frequently write as though they are the Voice of Israel. They are rarely, if ever, critical of any decision or action taken by Israel. For these writers to venture opinions [July 10] about the U.S. Supreme Court decision of Hamdan v. Rumsfeld that curtails Bush's grand ploy of absolute monarchy-dictatorship is beyond chutzpah.

Please enlighten your readers about the background of these two writers. Do they, along with Secretary Michael Chertoff, hold dual citizenship? Since Krauthammer advances the cause of military tribunals with suspects detained and locked away without legal counsel or their day in court, it is clear that he favors dictatorial powers for the unitary executive. Since Goldberg feels that SuperBush's cloak has been shortened by the Supremes, perhaps he would like to have a trial visit to Gitmo with all legal rights removed so he can write with authenticity about that grim prison that is likened to the Black Hole of Calcutta.

I am curious. Do they, along with Ann Coulter, advocate assassination for justices who curtail Bush's power to commit war crimes? They come just short of making such a recommendation.

— Sara DeHart, Lynnwood

and decided Jonah Goldberg might enjoy it so I sent him an email. He then posted the letter on NRO's The Corner and an update which has a link to the letter writers website, Bush Watch.
Sara Dehart, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Emeritus, University of Minnesota, MN is a freelance writer
and democracy activist, living in the Seattle, Washington area. She may be reached at
She is a University Prof, why does this not surprise me? She also seems to be a member in good standing of the "Bush is Hitler" crowd, such as The Indiscreet Charm of the Bush-Nazi Web Conspiranoids. Maybe the Times should "enlighten your readers about the background of this writer"

Her comments are completely reasonable... Unless you are the kind of fanatic that wants a King instead of a President... Or the kind of fanatic that cannot tolerate any criticism of Israel...

Are you that kind of fanatic? It's time for everyone to show their cards, I fear. The situation may blow over, but it's possible the greatest mistake of the 20th century - the re-establishment of the long-destroyed Jewish State - is about to become the greatest mistake in all of the monkey man's sorry history.

I for one say no help or support for Israel at all. We should recall our ambassadors and walk away. We have given them too much already.

While I disagree with this woman completely, nothing in there is cause for any kind of censure. This is run-of-the-mill lefty agitprop, and her statements are defensable.

Quite unlike the Frisch / Goldstein case IMO.

Right. She's clearly insane, but not actually dangerous.

Her comments are completely reasonable.

Her comments are leftist anti-Semitic bile. But then, possum, your comments are leftist anti-Semitic bile, so you wouldn't know.

A not so dirty secret of the Dems/Progressives/Left is the barely hidden anti-Israel and anti-Semitism that constitutes a significant subgroup here. You see it all too often, the unquestionable embrace of a terrorist organization (be it the PA,Hamas, Hezbollah, et al) over a democracy. A truly shameful wing of the Left....

You can't be serious. The greatest mistake of the 20th Century? There were two world wars that were raged accross the globe during the first half of the 20th Century alone killing millions and millions of people, one of which might have been prevented if appeasement was rightly discarded. Then you claim Israel is might be the biggest mistake? Pick up a freaking history book once in a while you obvious half-wit.

And the funny part is, Jonah isn't even Jewish.

Strange that she tags her email with 'ss' at the end- I'm sure it stands for Sarah-somethingthatstartswithS, but the coincidence given the context makes me smile.
