@SenatorDurbinís Attack On Free Speech and Associatio
Red State ^ | 8-17-13 | Streiff

When the Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci encouraged the left to begin a “long march through the institutions” he had two goals: co-opting neutral institutions in the cause of socialism and destroying institutions that could resist socialism. To a great extent his dictum has been followed in American and it has been successful. Academia is a monolithically left wing environment where conservatives are shut out and free speech relegated to designated areas on many major campuses.

Where the left can’t co-opt it seeks to harness the coercive power of the state to do its bidding. The saga of how the IRS violated federal law with impunity in order to target grassroots groups opposed to the administration is well known to all. What is less known is how the administration is going after donors to conservative groups as a way of shutting them down. The National Organization for Marriage had its confidential list of donors leaked by the IRS to the White House and the opponents of that organization so donors and their businesses could be targeted by supporters of homosexual marriage.

Now, under the leadership of Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) they have set their sights on another conservative group: the American Legislative Exchange Council.

When Little Dickless Durbin attacked my soldier son fighting in Iraq (and protecting civilians from terrorists), he put himself on my shit-list.

Being from Illinois really tells us who he is - either a red, a fool, a bought fool, mentally ill, egotripper like Obama, or any combination of the above.

What he is not is a loyal, decent, American. He sounds more like something from Radio Hanoi or the old Pravda/Tass.

Whatever he is, he is an enemy of America, and you can take that to the bank.

Madmax you summed it up well.

Durban’s communist connections and support are well documented in Trevor Loudon’s “The Enemies Within”.
