"Here is a helpful rule of political rhetoric: When you begin a sentence, ‘It may sound a bit crazy
and off base, but...,' you probably shouldn't finish it."(I guess what we really need are more Jim Jeffords and Lincoln Chafees."Real Republicansvote Democrat" could be our new motto.)We are now at the point where any utterance at all that merely questions whether a politicianleans Marxist is immediate grounds for dismissal, derision and even banishment from theRepublican Party and the public conversation.It is "McCarthyism" in reverse, or more properly,real McCarthyism as it actually happened, meaning the accuser is the one who suffers, not theaccused.But what if they
Marxist?Excuse me, but isn't the great lesson we were supposed to learn from Nazism to recognize suchevil before it reaches critical mass-to quash such movements
things get violent?As areminder, the Holocaust count was 11 million;communism killed 100 million.
If we do not allow ourselves to call something "wrong" or "evil", we yield the battle withouteven a fight.Yet to
from such "invective" is what is now called "civil discourse" and theright "tone."
Bill Ayers called himself a "small ‘c' communist."
Is it OK to call him a communist?Barack Obamasaidthis in one of his autobiographies (at least he said it on tape,whether or nothe wrote
the book himself ):"To avoid being mistaken for such a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politicallyactive black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structuralfeminists and punk rock performance poets."Here's a hint: you have to bepretty steeped in leftist thought to even know that the adjective"structural" goes with the noun "feminist."Obama was essentially a "red diaper baby"who was raisedandeducatedby Marxists to be
Marxist.Communists really did spy on us.They had secret meetings.Communism is no longer"strange"; it is taught in our schools, sometimes by Marxists.Obama went to such schools, took such classes and personally sought out Marxists.Bill Ayers calls himself a communist.Barack Obama's run for elective office was kicked off at a meetingin Bill Ayer's house.His voting
record was the most liberal in the Senate in 2007, orleft of self-avowed socialist BernieSanders.Are we not to infer theobvious?
