The Belmont Stakes

Agree in spades re: Belmont.
The transference of "guilt," however, is not merely a major tactic of terrorists, but of leftists in general.

One tends to forget amid all the name-calling that the standard move for any leftist is scapegoating, which means here both (1) fingerpointing ("he is immoral, the bastard . . ."); (2) transference of guilt (" . . . and therefore I am innocent"). If for one week only all leftists were deprived by divine fiat of the capacity to speak, write, gesture the accusation of someone else's moral evil, you would hear silence, nothing but silence.

As for terrorists, you have the leftist's conviction of his own innocence (and therefore the guilt of those who do not do his bidding) played out to its logical conclusion.
