Juan Cole Watch: What does Juan Cole’s secret Love Affair with the CIA say about Academia?

January 27, 2013


Middle East Studies professor Juan Cole fancies himself something of a superstar among academic armchair-leftists, thanks in no small part to his mindless and puerile blog Informed Comment, which is apparently quite popular among other academic armchair-leftists.  What are the “left-wing” credentials of somebody like Juan Cole, though?  It remains something of a question.  After […]

Getting to know Selecting Stones: A Basic FAQ

January 10, 2013


Q: Will capitalism survive the next storm or is this truly the end of the world? A: It depends on the proletariat.  The interests of capital and wage labor are diametrically opposed to one another.  But technically speaking, the end of capitalism does not necessarily have to mean that the world is coming to an […]

Juan Cole Watch: Why is Prof. Cole so concerned about Jesus’ wife?

September 26, 2012


Last week, when the story came out about an interesting papyrus containing an ancient Coptic text mentioning Jesus’ wife, Prof. Juan Cole of the University of Michigan, naturally, felt the need to chime in on the topic via his lackluster blog, Informed Comment.  The post, entitled “The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife and Sacred History from […]

Juan Cole Watch: Informed Comment panders for donations to fund Professor Cole’s travels

December 6, 2011


Juan Cole is now shamelessly soliciting his readers for money, $25,000 to be precise.  You, the Internet user, now have the privilege of writing out checks payable directly to “Juan Cole” (but addressed to Department of History, 1029 Tisch Hall, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1003), just for the joy of receiving a little […]

Hurricane Irene swallows up Juan Cole

August 26, 2011


By Larry Duvalier Well, not literally, but it certainly swallowed up whatever ability to think straight that he may have once had.  And that’s before it even reached North Carolina.  Good thing Ann Arbor isn’t on the coast! Today, on his blog Informed Comment, University of Michigan Middle East Studies professor Dr. Juan Cole chimed in […]

An Open Letter to Prof. Juan Cole

July 19, 2011


Dear Professor Juan Cole, You know so much about capitalism and unproductive labor, colonialism and social theory, ‘nativism’ and commerce, corporate privileges and onion ports. I can only assume that you come from a town such as Albuquerque, New Mexico, since you exhibit all the signs of the clever mind who sees through the world […]

Sharia in Oklahoma, or Who is the Bigger Idiot: State congresswoman Sally Kern, or Middle East Studies professor Juan Cole?

June 16, 2011


By Larry Duvalier Juan Cole just said something rather strange on his blog, Informed Comment.  The piece covers the arrest yesterday of five Pakistani C.I.A. informants by Pakistani authorities.  Big news, no doubt.  Cole notes that U.S.-Pakistan relations have recently been “breaking down” in “alarming ways.”  He cites the case of Raymond Davis, an American […]
