Why I am a "Reactionary" and not a "Radical."
I see that the Tenured Radical has again officially defined the position of "radical" US academics on Palestine by writing another attack on peaceful resistance to Israeli apartheid and colonization. This is why I am a "reactionary" and not a "radical." I do not support Israel just because it calls itself a social democracy and a Jewish State. I am not a "progressive." I am a hard line right winger and as such I support the national and human rights of the Palestinians. I believe they have the right to use not only boycotts, but also armed struggle to achieve their liberation. Of course that makes me politically incorrect and beyond the pale to all the leftists in US academia like Potter. But, so what? I live in Africa. Here there are still people alive that did fight for freedom and not all of that struggle was peaceful.
