Kevin Myers

Undoubtedly, Myers is cranky and curmudgeonly, and infuriating and idiosyncratic. He is also, at times, brutally honest (in the sense of describing the world as he sees it), offensive, rude, and maybe, just maybe—occasionally mean. But he is not an anti-Semite. And when you and your organization support that charge, even loosely, when you know it is not warranted, you will find that you have watered the charge of anti-Semitism down into a meaningless talking point when you try to assert it against genuine dangerous and violent anti-Semites (who, I am sorry to say, actually exist in your country [the U.K.]). It might make you uncomfortable to stand with Myers because he is not a modern politically correct saint, but that is (in my view) your job, else the allegation of anti-Semitism becomes a sham.
