Schama vs Phillips on the Trump victory: sound, fury and the 5th Column in our midst!

Here is Simon Schama ranting at Melanie Phillips about the Trump victory:

Here is a link to my first comment on The Financial Times web site:

A copy of my reply to @RiskManager:


Mr Schama declares Sen. Jeff Session’s remark about banker George Soros being demonstrative of ‘antisemitism’, the expression of the canard of  ‘International Banking Conspiracy’, which, in itself, might have a validity. Yet, then, Ms. Phillips calls out the ‘Left’ on Liberal Campuses, meaning the B.D.S. movement as an integral part of that rise,  no surprise!  B.D.S., Trump and the Populist Menace are part of the myth of a 5th Column in ‘The West’ that threatens an utterly collapsed Neo-Liberalism and its agents.

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
