JIM GERAGHTY\’S FIVE QUESTIONS

Ken Berwitz


One of the most instructive parts of a Passover seder is when a child recites “die fier kashas” (the four questions).  This provides a discussion of four types of children, their different outlooks relating to Judaism, and eventually to the story of the events leading up to “passover” and why it is celebrated.

I doubt very much that National Review\’s Jim Geraghty recited die fier kashas very much while growing up.  But, in his latest commentary, titled “The Selective Argument that Political Rhetoric Leads to Violence”, he has asked five questions relating to domestic terrorism which are important enough for me to provide this link so you can read them all.

Here\’s the first of the them:

Let me get this straight. In the eyes of the Left… 

…criticism of Planned Parenthood means something like the shooting in Colorado “was bound to happen”… 

…but chants where people describe police as \’pigs\’ and call for them to be \’fried like bacon\’ doesn\’t lead to attacks on police…

Interested in seeing more?  If so I don\’t blame you.  

Wouldn\’t it be nice if our media did nothing more than report both sides about equally?

Not only would it be a quantum change in the current state of the art, it would also lead to a far more educated, understanding public.

What\’s wrong with that?
