Reader comment on item: Blowback from Criticizing Trump

Submitted by C (United States), Jul 22, 2016 at 16:15

I admire and respect you greatly for your international and mid east analysis. However, I'm not sure why you chose to write about this and publish it. You're not a political pundit nor analyst nor do you have subscribers (such as myself) for the use of lecturing about your political views.

So why would you write something like that, no matter who the person? I'll continue to read your posts regarding your expertise in the field of the middle east but I hope you keep your political, social, etc. views out of any future posts.
Thank you.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I am a US citizen a voter, and someone who follows politics closely. Why should I not speak my mind?

Incidentally, if you go to the "US politics" topi at DanielPipes.org, you will see I have written 100 times on this subject..
