So here is an incomplete list of some of the many fantastic responses to MacDonald’s op-ed in the LA Times. They say many things more eloquently and at greater length than I, and I urge you to check them out. Also, make sure to read the comments, there’s lots of good information in those as well (as well as a few wannabe apologists, but just watch them get taken down).
We will be updating this post with new links instead of adding new posts on the same topic. Send us any links you come across!
