    If this does not offend you might I suggest that you are part of the problem?

    Guy is a clueless idiot who needs to be stood in the corner with a dunce cap for idiocy.


    But I refuse to be offended by his moronicism.

    I agree, why be offended? The author is a well known socialist so this is nothing new. Now if he had said somthing that was untrue, that would be offensive. Now this statement here....


    "Lauding Havel is not only doing a disservice to the millions of ordinary people in eastern Europe who have not been served well by his politics, but to the innocent men, women and children killed by the western military adventures he supported. While Havel was a man of undoubted talent and intellect, it's time we stopped eulogising people simply because they were anti-communist dissidents, and instead look at the bigger picture."

    That, I find offensive.
