"... Amis's slurs on Muslims." Why is "slur" in the plural like that? I only know of one slur, and that was pretty ambiguous, and he did a little groveling as a result. Or am I wrong?

Yes, as far as I'm aware there was just that one injudicious remark - but "slurs" in the plural makes Terry's argument sound so much stronger, no matter that it's not actually true.

There's going to be a lot more of this kind of talk in the coming years. Arguing with it is beside the point. Get ready for it.

It just occured to me that one could argue that Eagleton, whether he knows it or not, has become a supporter for stoning, the persecution of homosexuals, etc. At least that makes more sense than his corresponding argument.

Apparently he thinks there is a danger that socialists may 'find themselves behind bars with the zealots of al-Qaida'. Deranged!

Well quite. By not so much as mentioning such trivial matters, he is doing exactly that.
