“Trump and His Enemies”

William Voegeli is always worth reading. Quoting his latest essay doesn’t do it justice, but I particularly liked his comment about the New York Times’s editorial on the Orlando nightclub massacre: “Evidently, an Eighth Avenue blamestorming session was convened to alleviate liberal cognitive dissonance. The result was this postulate: if a) Islamophobia is evil, and b) homophobia is evil, but c) Islam is homophobic, then d) it’s all the Republicans’ fault.”
