Two round-ups

Democratic left round-up

Some good reads from blogs and websites on the democratic left, at Stuart’s place. Includes:

Marc Cooper blasts  the “worst of both worlds” in Cuba.

Right Wing Watch notes “Historians Agree: David Barton Is No Historian

Christopher Hitchens reviews the letters of Rosa Luxemburg More evidence that those who think Hitch has become a rightist are, to put it gently, wrong.

The week in links

A round-up by my companero Martin. Includes:

Another great column from Hitch (long may he flourish): reviewing Rosa  Luxemburg’s letters, and musing on how different history might have been, had her vision of socialism won out against the Leninist version. And on the subject of insurrectionary leftists, Julie Burchill is in blistering form, attacking the ‘Toytown Trots’ who think smashing shop windows is a revolutionary act, as well as the use of similar bullying tactics against Ahava for selling Israeli goods, so that ‘ we have now seen the first forced closure of a Jewish shop for QUITE A LONG TIME – give yourself a pat on the back for carrying on Hitler’s work so well, gang!’
