Literary hypocrites

(Found on Nationalreview.com/corner)

I’ve been looking at the home page of PEN, an “association of writers working to advance literature, defend free expression, and foster international literary fellowship” (emphasis added).
There’s not a word about the Danish cartoons, the violent protests, the threats to journalists and to freedom of the press inherent in this controversy.
Instead, the first item under “Get Involved” is: PEN Goes to Court to Challenge Patriot Act Exclusions of Foreign Scholars.

Yes, show me an organization of liberals touting free expression and I’ll show you world class hypocrites;  Time and time again.
