She self-embarrasses again!
Oh, Riverdaughter, you poor, sad person. At The Confluence, Riverdaughter continues to blog. No one can be sure why.
She's again attacking Chris Hedges. She's never understood Chris Hedges' arguments or where he's coming from. She's often lied and stated he supported Barack Obama. (He did not and he was trashed for refusing to -- trashed by many including Tom Hayden.) Today, she wants to write about a report Hedges did which, in her insulting manner, she calls a "post."
In Riverdaughter's one world, you either worship all things Hillary or you are an 'evil doer.' I campaigned for Hillary, I refused to vote for Barack in the general election (I voted for Nader) and yet even I couldn't meet Riverdaughter's purity test when it comes to Hillary. While a smart site like Hillary Is 44 allows that disagreements might come up with Hillary and doesn't see that as the end of the world, Riverdaughter's become a cultist.
(And, to be fair to her, she wasn't always that. But she has become what her 2008 critics accused her of. It took many years, but that's where she is now.)
She trashes Chris for using "corporatist" to describe Barack and wants to launch her one woman defense of corporations (maybe so she can print it up and pass it out to a prospective employer if she gets a job interview?) but then in the next paragraph ("one more thing"), she's agreeing with him on the concept but she's too stupid to know that. And it's cute the way she just found out about corporations in Germany as Hitler rose to power.
Of course, if she ever picked up a book worth reading, she might have known what she's 'just' found out by reading Hedges' own Death of the Liberal Class.
If she read that book, she might be forced to realize what happened and how.
I could dissect Riverdaught's bad post all night. Instead, I will merely note that all human beings will make mistakes. (Which apparently leaves out Riverdaughter.) She trashes Cornel West for having made a mistake.
Cornel West admits his mistake.
Everyone will make mistakes.
The test of maturity is can you admit your mistake and can you learn from it?
We know Cornel can do the first one. Time will tell if he can do the second.
But Riverdaughter can't grasp maturity because in her world you have to always be right. Which does explain why she deletes so many old passages when she changes her point of view, right?
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
