      that can be denied. A wack-job paranoid fantasy -- Sandy Hook Elementary denial --  that all but the craziest Far Right extremists can say that they "doubt it."

      -- Getting the votes of paranoids is a key for Republican survival.

      -- America has 7.5-million paranoids, applying personality disorder standards. That means people who self-generate paranoid fantasies.

      -- America has tens of millions of people who fall for externally-generated paranoid fantasies. Who have weak defenses.

      -- Since 1959 with the John Birch Society, then with Lee Atwater's 1988 outreach to "Angry White Males," going for paranoids has been a top priority for the Right.

      You will hear the standard Bircher schemes from GOPer House Members. Bachmann and her fellow bircher madmen:

      -- Government Attitude Towards Elderly Leads to Euthanasia
      -- Oppose Ratification of the UN Treaty on Disability Rights
      -- Voter Fraud
      -- Signs of a Declining Economy
      -- Russia Rising and Communism Isn't Dead  
      -- Nobel Prize Goes to EU. Communist President of EU Commission Thankful.
      -- Arab Unrest and Voter Fraud (in America, somehow)
      -- Ron Paul Drummed Out of Republican Party
      -- Questions about the Aurora Colorado Movie Shooting
      -- Attack on Christianity and Restore Religious Freedom in America
      -- United Nations Ordering U.S. Troops to War
      -- Long-term Goal of a United Nations Standing Army Behind the Syria Solution
      That's word for word from

      They have 150 Members in the House. They've gotten corporate media to relabel them as a "tea party."

      In fact there is little difference between JBS extremism -- carrying on about the Aurora Colorado mass murder, for example -- and the extremism of this YouTube video.

      Far Right propaganda has one organizing principle. Always.

      "Have you left no sense of decency, sir, at long last?" Army Attorney to Sen. McCarthy, 1954. "We have done nothing to be ashamed of. We have nothing to apologize for." NRA 12/14/2012.
