Tolerance vs Intolerance

A quote from Diana West, interviewed by Alyona Minkovski on the English-language Russian TV channel RT, March 5, 2010:

Hearing v. Deafness

Ms. West did a fine job in describing the reasons behind Wilders' and the PVV's recent electoral victories.  Unfortunately, Ms. Minkovski had decided the interview was to be friendly interrogation according to views cultivated at UCSC and influenced by the "anti-imperialist" masters of RT.  Instead of diluting or disrupting Ms. West's precision by referencing Hispanic-White relations in the United States or Western "imperialism", Ms. Minkovksi might have commented on how Putin deals with Islam, and how this differs from Wilders' repatriation proposals.
