Last Wednesday someone on a pro-Syrian FB group posted a link to a 
vitriol-filled blog post by Ben Norton from November 30th titled 
“Jacobin, leading neo-Kautskyite magazine, whitewashes SPD, erasing 
murders of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht”. I hadn’t given much 
thought to Norton since the Trump presidency began since it was apparent 
that the ultraright president had provided much less fodder to 
professional Assadists like Norton and Blumenthal. It was a bit 
difficult to write Gray Zone articles about the danger of regime change 
in Syria when there was every indication that there was a commonality of 
interests between the White House and these two knuckleheads over the 
need to destroy ISIS, al-Qaeda and any bearded man with the temerity to 
shout “Allahu Akbar” after taking out a Baathist tank.
