The Enemy of my enemy is…?

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. I’ve never been sure the old maxim made much sense. It gives your enemies rather too much control over the identification of your friends. What’s more, it allows people who really aren’t your friends to identify themselves as such just by opposing your enemies. Doesn’t that make it easier for your enemies to plant agents in your midst with no more effort than it takes to stage a phony brawl?
Because they live in such a hostile media environment, conservatives are all too willing to embrace any media voice that seems to take on their left wing opponents. But this means that at critical moments (particularly when it comes to personnel choices) they will be susceptible to information provided by people who have only been fighting with their enemies in order to get into a better position to do in the people whose sincerity, ability and leadership offer conservatives the greatest promise of success.
In this regard I have observed that the most important information conservatives can get from Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News Channel is silence: the things and people Fox positively ignores. You can be sure someone you know to be conservative is standing firm for what’s right when you can’t remember the last time you saw or heard anything positive about them on Fox News. Think of all the reporting they’ve done on the issue of Obama’s eligibility for the Presidency.
Listen to the silence. Better yet, learn from it.
