Daniel Greenfield: Neo-Cons beat the drum against Iran war, the false meme behind attacks on John Bolton…….


Personally, I’m for parking US warships (in international waters) just outside every single port Iran sends its oil to for refining into fuel for domestic consumption…


Also, Tucker Carlson’s attacks against Bolton for supposedly being one of the architects for the Iraq invasion is wrong, ridiculous and means spirited.



The false meme behind the attacks on John Bolton.


Daniel Greenfield

When archeologists dig through blue state landfills, and reach the strata of the Bush years, they’ll find copies of Dude, Where’s My Country, Radiohead’s Hail to the Thief, and a million newspapers accusing the “neocons” of “beating the drums of war”.


Unlike Michael Moore and Radiohead, there’s still a drumbeat of drum beating headlines.


Washington Post piece claims that the Trump administration is “beating the drums toward war” while blaming John Bolton and the “neo-cons”. Alternet declares, “Neocons Won’t Stop Until They Get Their War With Iran”. At The National, there’s a headline, “Neocons of America Want War with Iran”.


An ad from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, one of the three hundred Democrats in the 2020 clown car, released an ad claiming that “Neocons/Neolibs” are clamoring for war in Venezuela. And then another ad accusing them of wanting a war in Iran. Throw enough darts at a map and you’re bound to hit something.


The Neocons are beating those metaphorical war drums. Against the war.


David Frum, the Never Trumper who invented the term, “Axis of Evil”, rolled out an Atlantic article titled, “Take It From an Iraq War Supporter—War With Iran Would Be a Disaster”.


The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin retweeted the article, declaring, “Agree with every word”.


Their new axis of evil isn’t Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea. It’s Trump, Trump and Trump.


A FOX News personality claimed that “MSNBC, CNN, Max Boot, Bill Kristol” were agitating for war.
