More on the Rise of the New Right Wing

Chris Matthews' "The Rise Of The New Right-Wing

I blogged about the Chris Mathews' Rise of the New Right-Wing documentary on Daily Kos

Here's a reply from a dailykos blogger
Templar: "I remember when Goldwater was running around saying the same BS (I was in college at the time). The voters gave Johnson the greatest landslide since FDR. Relax - the more these cretins say - the more votes they lose. How many senior citizens will vote for someone who wants to take away their social security? How many young people
will support someone who wants to repeal the expanded health care law? How many minorities will give their vote to a candidate who wants to kick them out of the local coffee shop? It's just a matter of time. Caribou Barbie has just about used up her 15 minutes of fame."

Words of encouragement for sure but are they accurate? Here's my response...

It happened before: Yes, I too remember the Goldwater vs. Johnson election of 1964 and my fellow workers at the municipal courthouse were all afraid that Goldwater had a chance. But it seems we were all a bit wiser back then in the 60's or should I say more Liberal. But after Reagan was elected (no one ever thought this joker would get into the oval office) things changed and somehow the Republicans started to debase Liberalism as though it was something to fear, worse loath. And as they say, THE REST IS HISTORY. So even though these tea bag people seem nuttier than a squirrel's turd, if enough of them hop on the Nut Bandwagon... our goose is cooked and "Critical Thinking" will become a thing of the past. Lord help us! :-(

I found this interesting "critical thinking" piece, written by a Reagan Democrat activist, over at The Daily Reflector Give it a click or read an excerpt below. thinkingblue


This Is The Truth the Republican Party Operatives here and elsewhere Don’t Want You To Read or Know…

As many of you can see, there is a very clear agenda by the extreme right wing Republicans (not you evil “RINOs”) on these boards to silence truth and free speech. Any speech that challenges their narrow and supremacist anti-Constitutional views…well, you see they attack and castigate and try to silence such free speech by false labelings and unsubstantiated and frivolous allegations.

We’ve all seen its decadent mindset here.
It is hate-based and exemplary of the bigotry that eschews from
the extreme religious right. It’s everything the Founders
sought to protect us against when they gave us our secular Constitution.

As many of you know, I worked in the Republican
Party for a couple of decades. I’m a Reagan Democrat
activist who watched as the extreme “religious right”
absconded with the once-great Party of Reagan and turned it into
the anti-Constitutional Theocracy party that it has become. It
has a clearly stated agenda to overthrow our Constitution by all
means “…whatever the costs.” and to replace it and
our American values of free speech and speech with their narrow
and extreme religious dictates. It’s why the evangelical
Christian militias were gonna kill police officers and then
murder their families, women and children and relatives and
friends…potentially hundreds of families in a parade…as
some precursory match-stick to ignite an even larger evangelical
Christian militia uprising to overthrow our Government and
Constitution and replace it with their narrow evangelical
biblical interpretations…

“…whatever the cost.” It’s Machiavellian.

If you believe anything the RepubliKlanists're just about as stupid as they believe you are!

- Proud to be Liberal. I stand w/our Founders' secular vision: equality for all “regardless" of the racial, religious or ethnic bigotries of the few.
