Excellent point about the underlying non-seriousness of the Religious Right faction.
You call that an excellent point? You don't get out much, do you?
On a side note, I noticed this sentence: "It ought to be treated as a curiosity of the pre-Reagan right, a fantasy world where communist agents such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Dwight D. Eisenhower worked to undermine America.... "
One thing the nutbag Left has been successful in doing, largely due to their takeover of the media and Hollywood, is repeat, as accepted fact, that any accusations of communists infiltrating the US was always just paranoid fantasy, now discredited. Now that we see the fruits of the last 40 or 50 years of leftwing policies and propaganda, and the unbelievably drastic cultural and political changes they have wrought on this country, one would have to be a complete fool, ignorant of all 20th century US history, not to realize that those "fantasies" were, in fact, exactly correct, and the widespread disdain for those who raised the alarm, such as Joe McCarthy, are merely the natural result of that infiltration.
The fact that we have a communist like Obama in the White House, and a boatload of communists like Pelosi and Reid in Congress, with the approval of roughly half of the population, is ample evidence of communist infiltration and deconstruction of the American culture. Those things could never have occurred by force of arms 40 years ago, but have now occurred without a shot fired. McCarthy was a genius and a patriot, and Martin Luther King Jr. was probably a communist who worked to undermine America, despite whatever positive influence he may have been in terms of civil rights.

FF, I agree 100% with you and smell a lot of Lefty/Rookiefella perversion of reality in these faux conservative moles....as a new poster Yort may have a lot of learning needed before posting. IMO originating a contrarian POS post like this is a tell and indicates a trust but verify viewpoint even if the post smells a bit Trollish...if Yort would brush up on the history, read Blacklisted by History, the Venona Files or any of the documented history of the vast communist penetration of the Federal Gov., http://www.nsa.gov/public_info/declass/venona/index.shtml
) and respond again after actually knowing something about the pre-Reagan Conservative movement that should help to verify Yort's probity.

The other half, though, is educated enough to see what is happening and they are on the march to inform about our system of government and of how our Constitution is being trashed on that fast locomotive to Communism. The articles and comments on Freerepublic are doing a good job of pointing out the facts.

King was not a communist. There has been no evidence to support that, and quite the contrary, when I began to research this for my book ‘48 Liberal Lies’ I decided it could not in any way be supported and dropped it. His world view, by 1968, was a mixture of everything from Christianity to lower-case communism to existentialism, but an agent? Nope. No evidence at all from the recently released government files on him. HOOVER was convinced he was a communist, but remember Hoover was convinced the Mafia didn’t exist, and Hoover had substantial advance warning about the Japanese Pearl Harbor attack and failed to give it to FDR.
