One would not think that an opinion column “talking about shame” could be uplifting and refreshing, but Julie McDonald-Smith’s column was just that. Following the cue set by the mainstream media attacking the right, she dismantled the left with a casual, but accurately pointed, finger at the disgraceful behavior and absence before Congress of those elected officials boycotting Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech on March 3. People who do not want to hear the truth hate those who speak it. Julie McDonald-Smith addressed the issues of liberty, freedom and democracy in a clear, concise and honest voice.
The forceful and bitter verbal personal attacks against her, while avoiding any thoughtful rebuttal of her opinion, is the meaning of “diatribe.” But, that too, is ignored by those who simply know no shame.
