‘The Onion’ Stands With Israel Because It Seems Like You Get In Less Trouble For That
It’s interesting to see the The Onion recognize that a difficult issue may have nuance. They often take hard line on a popular progressive position, as cowardly as it is transparent, so that it will play well with their base. They savage anyone who introduces any level of nuance into the conversation. Now, apparently, they’ve seen the light.
I should know better than to criticize The Onion online for their naked political hackery. There are many people out there for whom the articles on the site are like sacred texts, and I always find myself under fire for pointing out their shallow logic and utter failure at humor.
