the stupid left - again

the excellent Michael J. Totten,, whose collection of dispatches from Iraq "In the Wake of the Surge" I recommend, alerts us to the award, by the city of Frankfurt, of a prize worth 50,000 euros to an academic, American I believe, named Judith Butler.  He doesn't say why she is getting this award.  I had never heard of her before today, but it seems she is quite well known, and is a strong supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah.  But she can't be being rewarded for that, can she?  Search me. She describes those two organisations as "left".  Well, I dispute that.  Murder of homosexuals and Jews, destruction of the state of Israel (and there's no nice way to do that) - what's left-wing about that stuff?
