The problem with postmoderns

I like Andrew Sullivan's points here, in talking about a pomo prof defending the Islamic protesters against the dastardly Danes:

What you see here is something very close to the surface among the postmodern left. They deny all truths, but somehow feel excited by being in the presence of true believers. It gives them a thrill, the way so many Western intellectuals once found Hitler's and Stalin's purism exciting.

Here is another good one from him. Speaking of British cops, the show MI-5 is quite good.
