Did someone just mention the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats who were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!

I remember them.
Well the bumpkins kicked butt yesterday. :-)
“My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway. In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”

The left is every bit as dogmatic and oppressive as they claim Christians are.
They know what is best for you because they believe they are more intelligent, more refined, and more advanced than the average citizen. If they have to put you in a cage, or kill you to make you understand, they have no problem with doing it.
Just bought the book based in VDH’s recommendation. Have only read the introduction and part of the first chapter but my impression is that it’s going to be a really good read.
Great find NYAmerican....
“The left is every bit as dogmatic and oppressive as they claim Christians are.”
The upper hierarchy of the left consists of pseudo intellectuals who think that they know best what is good for the peons. They give the false impression that they only want to helllp them, when in fact, they only want to make them their pawns.

I think it started in the 1900’s. One of the goals of compulsory schooling was to get children away from their parents and their teaching.
Which is why the great conflicts of today are not liberal vs conservative or Democrat vs Republican or North vs South but:
o The GOP Establishment vs Conservatives
o The Boston-Washington axis and the Left Coast vs "Flyover country".
o Washington vs The Rest Of Us
Reid hate common citizens coming into the DC palaces...
