i’ll answer the question presently, but first I’d like to point out: if my criticism is silencing Frum, then this tweet is silencing me.
which obviously it isn’t
there has never been any sort of acknowledgment or reckoning on his part, and I think it is entirely appropriate to call him to account on that score
Normalizing Frum today partakes in that phenomenon, and we shouldn’t.
Is there room for forgiveness? Sure. It’s not appropriate for me to bestow it. I’m not one of the direct victims of the Iraq war.
Moral room for him to have a platform again? Maybe. But not without a reckoning first.
He’s not trying to help. He’s just trying to keep his plum spot. Reconciliation without reparation. So much for him.
