Abstract

I’d heard about Wendell Griffen well before I met him. On more than one occasion the editorial page of the state’s largest newspaper, The Arkansas Democrat Gazette, took him to task for a number of legal/bench matters. And in this case the term Democrat is a misnomer; for even though it has somewhat ameliorated its editorial diatribes against anything liberal or Democrat, the paper’s editorial pages are still mostly hardcore conservative views. Occasionally Paul Greenberg, its former editorial page editor and Israel’s apologist in Arkansas, had taken Judge Griffen to task in an unprofessional ad hominem manner.

Greenberg, AKA Voice of Israel, is known for his trademark caustic and xenophobic attacks on anything Palestinian, Arab, or Muslim. And, if one were to parse Greenberg’s comments on racial matters, one is likely to note distaste for the Other, and there plenty of Others in this, a nation of Others/immigrants.
