This is not the first time the NeoCons have tried to weasel out of the NeoCon label, which they themselves created.
Just days ago, I was looking up the Wikipedia page for Commentary Magazine, where it was described as a neoconservative publication. In the "talk" section of the page, where editors discuss edits, it turns out someone tried to remove the reference to neoconservativism, claiming it was an epithet to disparage Jews. Someone else pointed out (furnishing proof) that this was a label the NeoCons had come up with THEMSELVES. To describe, well, themselves. The term was not removed from the page. But who knows what could happen in the future? I suggest we keep an eye on that Wikipedia page!
If "NeoCon" has negative connotations, they might want to just consider the possibility that it's because, well, they've done negative things.
