American Conservative co-founder, journalist and leading Paleo-conservative Taki offers unique perspective on anti-neocon thought and decentralization of government. To label Taki controversial is a serious understatement.
I look forward to Taki’s “Under The Black Flag” feature in every issue of the Paleo-conservative journal Chronicles published by the Rockford Institute. In the September issue, Taki’s headline was “Achtung, Spooks!” (subscription required) aiming at CIA spying on Germany, and suggesting that the CIA’s top man in Germany would be better served concentrating on weeding out Israeli spies in Washington. Taki comments, “It would make more sense, as Israel does spy on her benefactor, protector, and major ally, whereas Germany does not.” Taki reasons, “They (Germany) are law abiders with no desire to play dirty games now that the Cold War is truly over, and they definitely do not want to be Washington’s patsies in the war against radical Islam. In fact Uncle Sam could learn a trick or two from Uncle Heinrich in keeping above the fray. But with AIPAC busy stirring up trouble. I’m just whistling Dixie.”
In a concluding positive note on today’s Germany, Taki tells readers, “There is no better and more pleasant place to live than in Germany, as long as one keeps away from busy ports like Hamburg and Muslim-infested cities like Frankfurt.”
