Must not call terrorists "knuckle-dragging savages from the 10th century"

The Leftist Media Matters is trying to drum up outrage because John Gibson of Fox News referred to Iraqis who are kiling one-another over there as "knuckle-dragging savages from the 10th century". I wonder what century Media Matters think the killers best fit? I guess the Politburo of the Soviet Union in the early 20th century would not be a bad fit: The Soviets that the New York Times regularly defended and which American "liberals" used to refer to as "just liberals in a hurry". They were right about that, of course -- though the corollary -- that liberals are just slowed-down Communists -- is rarely mentioned.

Riehl World has the details.
