In last night's verbal savagery in Brooklyn there were several striking moments.
Hillary Clinton's pandering to the supposed "toughness" of the denizens of New York City was pathetic in its demonstration of her universal appeals to any group that might ever have thought itself wronged. Well, pilgrims, I suppose we expect that of her now.
But the very "best" was the moment frozen in time for me in which Sanders, in the sure knowledge that this would hurt him politically, told the audience that the 10,000 Palestinians wounded and 1500 Palestinian dead at Gaza in 2014 was a "disproportionate response" to the garage built rockets fired into Israel from Gaza.
A voice in the crowd then cried out "We are proud of that!" The voice seemed to be that of a woman. My wife thinks it was a woman.
She is proud of that? I can understand that one might think this butchery was necessary, but how can a human, any human, be proud of something like that?
Is there anything that could be done to the Palestinians that the voice in the crowd would not be proud of? Please tell me that we did not understand what she said. pl
