I do not often find myself in the position of defending Christopher Hitchens, and I'm not really going to start now, but I will say that this is the most transcendently ridiculous and immaculately overdetermined piece of casuistry I have ever read. The whole thing plays like a transmission from beyond Narnia. It is as magnificently absurd as a Gaudi. The author proposes that the existence of Jews proves the realness of their god, an exercise in question-begging that curiously applies to Jews and only to Jews, and he says that questioning the biblical accounts in Exodus is literally the same as Holocaust denial. Then he says:
Hitchens’ anti-Judaic diatribes may yet prepare the way for another Holocaust.May yet! Oh, Lulz. I may yet go home later today to find Johnny Weir, a sling, and a five-day-bender-worth of poppers. Go tell it on the mountain!
