Conservatives being accused of everything other than what they’re guilty of…loving and protecting the Constitution!
Only yesterday our local paper (Missoula, MT is a university town, and like most bleeding liberal) ranted about the Tea Party and “right wing” being fellow travelers with skinheads and, of course, the general term “racists,” and that new term I enjoy so much “Islamophobics.” The article quoted Devin Burghard of the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights, who was speaking at the annual convention of the Montana Human Rights Network.
Strangely, I saw no article tying the democratic party to communists, socialists, the black panthers, or other radical groups, who were in such attendance at their recent rally in D.C.? Nor have I ever seen one in the Missoulian?
This from the “Our Vision” section of the webpage of the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights:
“The white nationalist movement consists of an ever-shifting array of organizations, publishing houses, think tanks, websites and individuals with an interlocking leadership and cross-pollinating memberships. Two relatively distinct trends exist in the movement: a mainstreaming wing that hopes to build a political majority among white people, and a vanguardist wing comprised of hard-core cadres with a more violence-prone tendency. Both movement wings aim at establishing a whites-only political, cultural, and social dominance over the United States. The long-term goal of the most significant sector of the movement is the creation of an Aryans-only nation-state, separate from the rest of the country.”
There is no question that both parties and both sides of the political spectrum attract radicals, and yes, I would think that skinheads and racists would certainly tend to be attracted to the right, where people are concerned with immigration, with welfare, with the destruction of our cities which seem to enjoy a preponderance of minorities. Concern with immigration, which the skinheads would perceive as keeping the Mexicans out when the real intent of most those concerned (the 99% who aren’t “radicals”) is keeping the drug dealers out and, in fact, knowing who’s sneaking into the country to take advantage of medical care, social security, jobs (for which one can’t blame them), and the possibility of having an “anchor baby,” no matter their color or national origin.
It’s easy to bend someone elses motives to suit your own agenda. I’m reminded of a Mark Twain quote: ”Often the surest way to convey misinformation is to tell the strict truth.” So, yes, there are radicals on both sides of the spectrum. Let those who are innocent cast the first stone.
The excerpt from the “Vision” of the IREHR as shown above is typical of the rhetoric of those opposed to conservatives. I’m particulary offended by the statement, “….a mainstreaming wing that hopes to build a political majority among white people, and a vanguardist wing comprised of hard-core cadres with a more violence-prone tendency. Both movement wings aim at establishing a whites-only political, cultural, and social dominance over the United States.”
Then again, they may have part of it right, what they should have said in describing the right wing is: “…a mainstreaming wing that hopes to build a political majority, and a vanguardist wing comprised of hard-core cadres with a more violence-prone tendency, such as the minute men and the majority of our forefathers in the time of our revolution. Both movement wings aim at maintaining a political, cultural, and social dominance over the United States in compliance with the Constitution.”
Of course the only thing the left has to fall back on, now that their failed socialist economic policies are again coming to the forefront of attention to the average American, who concerns him- and herself normally with working hard and supporting his family, and paying his taxes without complaint, and leaves politics to those he’s elected and entrusted, is name calling. According to the IREHR, so faithfully reported by the local liberal rag, the conservatives (those who believe in and support the Constitution) are nothing more than racists, Nazis, Islamophobics, etc.
Sticks and stones will break our bones, but words?
Now, you name-calling weiners, let’s see what votes do.
As the Japanese admiral Yamamoto said when the success of their raid on Hawaii was reported, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” And you who want to make the Constitution into a living, breathing document–a euphanism, doublespeak, for changing it to meet your goals–have awakened the monster called “Americanism.” And we (yes, we white, brown, yellow, red, and black) think the Constitution is just fine the way it is.
