Clemens on Peretz and Soros

I’ve already mentioned New Republic editor in chief Martin Peretz’s lunatic screed against George Soros wherein the philanthropist and Holocaust survivor is made to answer to charges of being a Nazi collaborator. To me, it seemed the less said about this the better. But Steve Clemons wanted to say more, so I say give him a read. Soros, of course, earned his money, whereas Peretz obtained it through marriage. And Soros has spent his money on various charitable endeavors around the world. Peretz has used his cash to secure publication for his otherwise unpublishable work and, as Clemens says, is so deeply opposed to the notion of political accountability for the architechts of the present disaster because such accountability would necessarily bite him.
