  •  Oh.....so that's how they became an unAmerican (15+ / 0-)

    party of assholes, freaks, dimwits, and total fuck-ups.

    Have always wondered where "intelligent republicans" (pardon the term, English is a limited language) went.

    We do need to insert the Powell Memo in this context too. That really is the 'blueprint" for all the hateful shit these freaks perpetrate. It appears to have been dumped on us in 1971.

    The sources are varied and diffused. They include, not unexpectedly, the Communists, New Leftists and other revolutionaries who would destroy the entire system, both political and economic. These extremists of the left are far more numerous, better financed, and increasingly are more welcomed and encouraged by other elements of society, than ever before in our history. But they remain a small minority, and are not yet the principal cause for concern.

    The most disquieting voices joining the chorus of criticism come from perfectly respectable elements of society:

    from the college campus,

    the pulpit,

    the media,

    the intellectual and literary journals,

    the arts and sciences,

    and from politicians.

    In most of these groups the movement against the system is participated in only by minorities. Yet, these often are the most articulate, the most vocal, the most prolific in their writing and speaking.

    A veritable blueprint for all the stuff they consistently have attacked endlessly for nearly 40 years.
