Andy Divine of April 24 2020

Andy Divine never shuts up! But when he does come up for air, to pronounce on ‘The Pandemic’ he is adept at playing the victim! Even America’s favorite discrete Neo-Liberal, Obama, tweeted about this!

‘I have direct, personal experience of living through a plague once before in my life.’

His readers shouldn’t forget his publication of a long excerpt of ‘The Bell Curve’, In The New Republic of Oct 31, 1994 , Halloween, how appropriate! His aggressive advocacy for  The Iraq War, his  continuing war against Students , of a certain political stripe etc.

He continues the benighted tradition pioneered by the late Allen Bloom, of the 1987 Best- Seller ‘The Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students‘. A singular example of Neo-Conservative Political Theology’s desperation.

About stephenkmacksd

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.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
