THE POLITICAL PENDULUM: CONSERVATISM AS PUNK ROCK AND A CAUTIONARY TALE FOR PROGRESSIVES

Posted in SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, THE POLITICAL PENDULUM with tags , , , on 30/07/2014 by sarahbloch

I have read a few pages of Kurt Schlichter’s new book “Conservative Insurgency” and as much as I wanted to dismiss this as yet another conservative wish list dressed up as fiction as I read I took a moment to consider the premise. Schlichter is a good writer and he touches all the bases as a writer that can keep a reader interested by by creating interesting characters with depth and presenting them in compelling situations. Okay, so much for my literary criticism. The politics of the book lay the groundwork for the premise. In 2041 the third consecutive conservative President of the United States has been elected and is awaiting his inauguration. Progressivism has been swept aside as a new wave of conservatism has overtaken not only politics but American culture. Strengthened are the values of the right in state and local governments, in the arts and in academia.

My Progressive friends, don’t laugh; for he who does not learn from history is damned to repeat it. Schlichter concedes a Hillary Rodham Clinton victory in 2016 and then explains how her administration fails completely because of foreign policy blunder that leads to a nuclear strike on Israel by Iran shortly after her reelection in 2020. Earlier in the prologue the author casts a progressive radio pundit at the age of 64 in 2041 lamenting the marginalization of her ideology in many of the same ways that conservatives lament the infighting and the endless defeats in the current Culture Wars.

There was a time that I would see this premise as laughable; today not so much. If there is one thing that I know about politics and societies that thing is that the pendulum always swings back to the center. Whether the pendulum swings all the way to the right or left after a cycle depends on how much the electorate feels change needs to be made. After Nixon resigned the nation wanted anyone to replace the feeling of shame about their highest elected office and that gave rise to Jimmy Carter. The scenario regarding the fictional Clinton is a hope by Schlichter that a similar foreign policy failure would bring her and her party down. Obama’s election and the massive influx of Democrats into the House and Senate in 2006 and 2008 was a direct rejection of the Bush Administration’s neoconservative policies in Iraq.

The other part of this story is the article written, clearly to promote his new book, about how the conservative ideology is like punk rock. This article is the opposite of Schlichter’s good writing in his book. This piece at Townhall.com is a sad attempt to present the conservative cultural program as something that it is not. Conservatism isn’t new, fresh or cutting edge. Conservatives don’t want to kick the walls of Progressive oppression down and “stick it to the man” because they are the man. The bitter progressive in his book is manifest in his own pitiful stretch to make conservatism cool in the current age. There is no amount to stage makeup that can change the current feelings about conservatism and conservatives, but in the not too distant future a few years of a comfortable majority in both houses of Congress and a twelve year occupancy in the White House could lead to a level of complacency in the Democratic Party that could prove as fatal as running bad candidates for the presidency from 1972 though 1988. My advice to Progressives is to buy Schlichter’s book and read it– twice.

NEOCON1 LIKE MANY JAPANESE SOLDIERS AFTER WW2 DOESN’T KNOW THAT THE WAR IS OVER AND THAT HE HAS LOST

I have to admit that I admire Neocon1 for something. No matter how many times it’s pointed out to him that his sources are flawed if the information that he sees makes the case for his worldview, disparages, minorities or insults President Obama, he’ll post it. To have that sense of blind ambition is something that may serve him well here in Hell. Here’s his latest comical screed posted at Blogs4Victory:

The Communist Takeover Of
America – 45 Declared Goals
From Greg Swank

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

I know, the smart kids in the room are rolling their eyes because they know where this is going to end. bear with me for a moment folks while I fill everyone else in on what’s happened here. The comment comes from a post made by Greg Swank at rense.com on 4 December 2002. That post is entitled “The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals” and details an alleged reading into the Congressional Record in 1963 by Florida Represetative A.S. Herlong Jr. the declared goals of global Communism. He got these goals sent to him by a Florida citizen, newspaper publisher and devout anti-Communist named Patricia Nordman of DeLand, Florida. I have put several staff on searching for this newspaper both here in Dis and in Florida and no existence of such a newspaper has been recovered. Also, there is nothing that I can find from the Congressional Record of the 88th Congress to support that this was ever read into the record.

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

These “Communist goals” have been touted at one point by Glenn Beck, but curiously that link has been broken and the record of it being posted only appears in the archives. The origin of this list [shown in full above] is from a book written in 1958 by W. Cleon Skousen called The Naked Communist. Likie much of Skousen’s works this list was a reaction to the very beginning of the decline of White Privilege in America. The far Right elements of American Conservatism have latched on to this list as “proof” that Communism is taking over America. This is important to document because it tells us something about the nature of the far Right in America today.

The people that are shouting at the top of their lungs from the Right about Obama being a Socialist and that Communists are everywhere in government, in schools and in churches come from a generation when the biggest baddest thing that could destroy their way of life was that demon called Communism. In thirty years, bigots newly minted in the fearful lustrum of years following the 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centers in New York City will be doing the same in regard to apostate Islamic terrorism even if like Communism the threat no longer exists. Neocon1 is a child of the middle of the last century. He went to war in Vietnam because the old white men in power at the time told him to go to war. He returned to a country severely divided not only on the war, but on women’s rights, gay rights, civil rights for minorities, what to do about the poor and a myriad of other social issues. Today Neocon1 still cannot let go of that struggle that defined him in the time when he came of age. Communism is a safe word for him to use to vent his anger when really what he wants to say is, Why is the color of my skin no longer a key that opens all doors?”

The world, the America, of Neocon1’s youth is dead and America is better off for it. Everyday another lobe of the cancer that is conservatism is snipped away, not by a Communist plot, but by cooler, more rational heads both within and outside of government. In less than 100 years America has transformed from a nation that would have suited Bill Logan Sr [aka Neocon1] very well where a man because of the color of his skin could murder a man in his own front yard, leaving him to bleed to death in the arms of his wife, and walk free for decades, into a nation where a simple disparaging comment against a person of color is generally met with a measure of brutal disdain both civilly and economically. And yet there is still much more Progress to be made.

DENISE ODIE JOSEPH II YOUR LIBERAL NEIGHBORS WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF THEIR HEARTS

Posted in BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE SEX SCANDAL, DENISE ODIE JOSEPH II, DINESH D'SOUZA, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS with tags , , , , , , , , on 19/10/2012 by sarahbloch

First Andrew Breitbart just drops dead and now this Dinesh D’Souza epic fail? Now the Right has made a martyr of Breitbart but with D’Souza not so much. The Sadow wrote a great post anchoring Dinesh D’Souza to his own Jovian level of hypocrisy and now it’s time for me to do the same with what many would have liked to think was the victim of this whole “scandal” Denise Odie Joseph II.

I wanted to compare this whole mess like a massive Hollywood breakup but an election didn’t turn and the ideological future of the nation didn’t change because Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston broke up. Denise Odie Joseph II was a conservative groupie who blogged on the fringe of the Conservative movement. From reading some of her posts I’ve gathered that she didn’t really care for the Washington Post and she’s voting for Romney because he husband told her to. Maybe her husband should have told her not to fuck other people less than a year into their marriage–that might have at least delayed D’Souza’s biblical crash and burn at the hands of some of his former colleagues.

That last bit is what I’m savoring the most. It wasn’t the Huffington Post or MSNC that brought down D’Souza it was his own scorned pals in the Conservative Christian apologetics movement that took him to task. D’Souza even made the desperate comment that he didn’t know, as a Christian, that he didn’t realize that being engaged before you were divorced was a real no no. Okay, either ‘Souza is just not willing to play by any rules that keeps him from his weet piece of ass or he is simply stupid. The latter makes more sense after watching his film Obama 2016 the former makes more sense if you listen to much of the hateful rhetoric he’s spewed over the last two decades.

Back to the very married and very skinny and likely very flexible [and not only in her morality] Ms Joseph II. The real victim in all of this is Dixie Brubaker, not D’Souza or Joseph, or even conservatism which gets another load of jizz in the eye because they have once again forgotten their leaders are human and have human desires. Even Joseph’s own blog was called, “I, Denise, Lust After . . .” and, of course it has been scrubbed from the outer integument of the Internet. Or maybe it imploded from its own hypocrisy? The Living may never know the answer to that one. Joseph’s opinions were little more than a set up to get closer to her ultimate target Dinesh D’Souza, but they also are so deeply hypocritical in the light of the affair that the only way to them justice is to post a bit of it and let you the reader reflect.

And because the societies their liberal ideas create are so incredibly, diversely stupendously fantastic, Type II Liberals are forced to pay $30,000.00+ a year to get their kids a basic K-12 education while demeaning Republican tax structured communities as racist, exclusionary, and backwards, ignorant to the fact that these communities take for granted resources and services Liberal ones can’t even imagine. Type II masochists, for all their learnin’, have no idea that public school requires tuition–in the form of their tax dollars–paid to that great behemoth of efficiency, The Department of Education. They have no idea that when they are forced to send their kids to private school because of the sorry and dangerous state of public education in their Liberal Meccas, they are not being honored but insulted and robbed in broad daylight. Apparently, highly concentrated populations of juvenile Trayvons in Trayvon-dominant schools aren’t considered acceptable company for Type II Liberal kids, though their plights make excellent dinner party conversation.

Sadly enough, Type II Liberals do precious little to hide their raging masochism and their penchant for setting up situations of suffering is painfully transparent. After spending all that money to ensure that their kids don’t eat lunch next to Trayvons in Trayvon-dominant schools, these very sames proudly and righteously brag about the significant (like 30 total) percentage of richly-and-incurably-wronged-racially-diverse-prize-pig-kids-from-the-ghetto, a.k.a Trayvons, their private school enrolls. (Libs love hyphenated identities.) Of course, these are the banner kids of banner progenitors who have been cheated by society in every conceivable way, shape and de jure and de facto form. When Trayvon comes to the party alone, Type IIs are happy, but when he brings his neighbor-hood of friends in hoodies…

Somehow, when The Annual Fund (oooh, doesn’t that sound fancy) time comes around each year, Type II parents, usually so proud of their 30 imported hyphenated-identitied kids, become downright p-i-s-s-e-d about forking over several thousand more in “gifts” which, by the way, pay the tuition of the 30 imported hyphenated-identitied kids. Type IIs however, are quickly soothed when the school prints their name as donors in some concert program or parent newsletter or cafeteria menu or something. Upon seeing the several different categories of donors listed and endowed with the competitive spirit that fuels their successful and lucrative careers, said Type IIs even silently vow to donate more next year since So and So’s Type II parents cannot possibly be listed as “Generous Donors” while they are only noted for their “support.”

Yes, Type IIs are suckers for punishment.

Finally, there is the third class of Liberals, none other than Type III. While I think Type Is are more likely than not afflicted with some form of mental illness, I do have some respect for those who walk their talk, whatever I may think of their talk. Type IIs are pathetic but in a way, and for whatever sick reason, are generous donors to that bottomless pit charity called the entitlement state. It is for the third class of Liberals that I reserve the most disdain. Maybe it’s because I rub their elbows daily—physically–as they walk home from their bureaucratic jobs and because I listen to them honk their tiny electric car horns at each other like the caring, compassionate, barbarians they really are. The kind caring kind who kindly care about every last species of tree frog on the face of the planet but who could live in the apartment next door and for their entire life, never deign to send as much as a lukewarm glance in your direction. I’m serious folks, if not for the bill collector, you could seriously DIE in your DC apartment and NEVER EVER be found.

Type IIIs, due to limited earning potentials, gravitate to Liberalism out of envy and narcissism. They know they can never afford multiple German imports so they zealously propel their clown cars up and down the road to Whole Foods, all the while secretly grudging the good fortune of their Type II brother. Soon, Type III thinks, his precious President O’s policies will cut brother down to size and force him to drive the expensive enough, but inevitably less-expensive than the 7 Series BMW, state-mandated vehicle. Type III women can find no man to marry them and know that even if they somehow did, their Type III household combined income could barely accommodate one child much less multiple children in Liberal $30,000.00 per annum land. Is it surprising then that those with Type III pathology become the most adamant birth control and abortion advocates?

As an aside, I think it is interesting how Obama pays the aforementioned 30,000+ to send his kids to school while doing his best to tax and policy-to-death other high-earners out of the ability to do the same for their kids. I guess if he ever becomes a victim of his own policies, he can simply write a book or make a speech demonizing the ‘rich’ and poof, he’s got more money than he can spend, with or without taxes. No need to worry about Sasha and Malia ever bringing home a Trayvon from a DC public school. Why in the world doesn’t he send his kids to public school with the richly-wronged people he supposedly adores and respects? Send his kids to school with integral members of his base? And just in case you were wondering, Type III men, troubled products of divorce and other progressive-society maladies, have no interest in buying cows when they can milk a different but equally unpleasant cow for free every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.

In short, Type IIIs are young, educated beyond their means, and firmly entrenched in their Northern Virginia condos, clinging to their tax bracket like the rest of us cling to our liberty. Simply put, these Liberals can’t afford hypocrisy and so take up the banner of Liberalism in the pursuit of an achievable status distinction. The ideology itself is a status symbol. Their psychological need for Liberalism is as great as the Welfare Mom’s physical one.

So which type of Liberal do you love to hate? Regardless of your preference, the following story has something for you.

Ms Joseph your liberal neighbors, all three types love you now. The only thing left to find out is if Dinesh D’Souza has binders full of women or just this one in a hotel room that he kept in a a keycard sleeve.

I’ve seen some really dumb things in my job here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork in the past 15 years doing research and for a brief time serving as interim Editorial Page Editor. Nothing, and I do mean nothing compares to this:

Okay, put into its simplest terms anyone that would drive this thing around has some issues. There’s a lack of love in his or her life that can only be filled by fanatical religious belief. Lucky for this person they live in America where people just shake their heads or laugh rather than pulling the owner out and setting trailer on fire. That said I want to show you what love looks like as a counter point.

So conservative reader, how is your marriage suffering because these two people are in love and have committed to each other? It’s love despite what Mitt Romney says and it should be respected in marriage if they choose to commit to marriage. Ownership of the word marriage is the bunker where conservative bigotry is making its last stand against Freedom in America. Love is so clearly fundamental to everyone it seems other than fundamentalists and a few black preachers who are still scared of the gay.


In Hindsight

The Culture Wars, as I have said many times really ended in 1920 when women got the right to vote. Now no matter how many qurans Terry Jones burns, or how many rallies for the TEA Party the Koch Brothers have or how many stern letters Catholic Bishops send to the White House they have all been exposed as frauds and the people have decided that America isn’t a faux Christian nation but a secular Liberal/Progressive nation that assures even the most vile and odious right wing religous nuts have the right to freedom of speech.

Pax Terra!

I read a Blogs 4 Victory post entitled, “The False Narrative” last night and went to bed with the words of a commenter turned poster Cluster ringing in my ears. That ringing turned to laughter as I thought of how I would reply to his positions on abortion, racism and the War on Women. Here’s the gist of his argument:

Abortion –The party with the extreme position on abortion is the democrats. They currently support federal funding, partial birth, and live birth abortion, and essentially the right to kill the unborn without question at anytime. This position is far out of the mainstream, and voters need to know this. Conservatives support life with the rape/incest exception, which is optional, and that position is actually the real pro choice position.

– Racism – Honestly the political party that harbors racists, are the democrats. Most of them simply believe that people of a darker skin color are victims of this society solely because of their pigmentation, and that without government help, they are incapable of living a productive life. This mindset is deplorable and offensive. They also believe apparently that they need to be the protectors of our first black President, because obviously he is unable to withstand criticism of most any kind, due once again to the color of his skin.

– War on Women – Once again, the political party that is waging war against women is the democrats. How offensive is it for most women to know that Obama and Sandra Fluke believe that women are incapable of providing for their own contraception needs? How hypocritical is it for liberal feminists to say “keep your hands off my body” but then expect us to pay for their abortion and healthcare needs? How denigrating is it to believe that a pregnancy is an obstacle in a woman’s life? The fact is, women are incredibly strong and more than capable of determining, and paying for, their way through life without anyones help.

Here is my response:

Abortion—The facts on this are simple. The Democratic Party supports a woman’s right to choose when she has a child. Thereby, a woman to the Left has a right to choose to have an abortion that takes place within the time allotted by federal law. I repeat federal law dictates the time span of fetal development where an abortion is legal. In some cases, where the life of the mother is in jeopardy, an abortion is medically necessary beyond this federal limit. I woman cannot, in any jurisdiction in the United States of America have an abortion procedure beyond 21 weeks simply by saying she wants and abortion. I do not know anyone who supports partial birth abortion on demand. I also understand the law that says any viable fetus born alive even in an abortion clinic must be kept alive or the physician and anyone attending can be charged with murder. What you have written is hyperbole for the conservative base and nothing more.

Racism—It is easy to throw this term around but I find this very dangerous. I think America has progressed concerning race more in the period from 1950 to 2000 than it has at any other time in its history. Since 2000 however, there has been a turn from the institutionalized racism of the last century to a reactionary bigotry over the last 12 years. One has to understand the difference between bigotry and racism to even engage in this conversation. Racism needs power to fuel it. The power comes from politics. If those in charge all come from the same racial demographic then it is far more easy to keep another racial demographic at bay with laws that segregate them. The post Civil War Democratic Party in the South, made up of the most ardent conservatives of the time, saw the opportunities they had once the Reconstruction ended to initiate laws that would secure them power for what they thought would be forever. Those conservative Democrats could not have seen the Federal Government ever exercising its power below the Mason-Dixon line again and for over one hundred years they were right. So instead of having the vision for the future that Grant held blacks were put into a lower caste by the ruling white elite in the South and life for them remained that way until 1946 when the first stirrings for a second emancipation began. By the time the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed and signed by President Lyndon Johnson the white powerbrokers in the South realized they needed a new strategy, one less embarrassing than the overt bigotry supported by racist thinking that has been broadcast to the world by CBS News night after night. It took four years for a savior to come to the conservatives in the South who while Democrats were more than willing to shed that label to keep the suffering status quo in regard to the Negro. President Nixon utilized the animus between working class white and working class blacks in the South to march to victory in 1968. Reagan in his very first campaign speech did the same in Neshoba County, Mississippi and reinforced the new ethic of conservative views on race with his alliance with the Moral Majority in 1980. Race was cast aside in the late 1980s by President George H. W. Bush in the name of continuing economic prosperity. Demographers, however, knew that in a generation a great decline was going to take place among the white electorate. Younger white voters were becoming more and more liberal. Black voters had allied squarely with the new Liberal post-Kennedy Democratic Party led by Northern Liberals and Midwestern moderates. The GOP once a party of Ed Burke of Massachusetts and Barry Goldwater was now the party of Strom Thurmond and David Duke. The overt race baiting politics of the 1930s and 1940s no longer had a place among the Conservatives as it was no longer socially acceptable. The bigotry had to come from a dedicated and older bloc of conservative voters who see blacks and Latinos as a drain on their wealth [keep our taxes low], see minorities as a violent threat to their personal security [flash mobs] and demand that any leader of the country be able to prove he is American even if it is clear he was born in the US [birtherism]. Conservatives don’t need Racism because as their demographics shrink over the next 20 years, with the dying off of the Baby Boomers having begun in earnest, the power base that would have driven it too will have died off. Young Conservatives will take a new more inclusive tack. They will put the moralizing and religious traditionalism behind them and work to make their party a more populist and albeit nationalist simulacrum of the moderate wing of the Democratic Party. The next fifty years will be very interesting politically for America. On December 31, 2064 the last Baby Boomer will be 100 years old. The country that you know now will be long gone. I imagine it will still be prosperous but that prosperity will be dominated by Liberal married couples made up of majority that is composed of those that conservatives most fear the most. Educated white women will marry outside their race more as more and more blacks and Latinos earn higher education degrees in a truly level playing field. Gay and Lesbian couples will become full citizens as their marriages will be recognized as marriage in every state in the Union. Abortion will become rarer as government provided contraception is made cheap and widely available as Obamacare proves to be as effective for the young worker as Social Security is for the elderly. Churches will once again be filled with people of Faith rather than peasants of Fear. I feel that America in 2064 might be in the shining diamond midst of a new global golden age and she cannot be that with retrograde racial thinking but only by the continuing efforts of Progressives to keep up the pressure on the wobbling old man of Conservatism.

The War on Women—Post Clinton America finds itself in that phase the demographers of the 1980s warned conservatives about. Not to beat the issue to death but the pro-life position on abortion, as a political issue, while cloaked in the sweet intentions of preserving life is really nothing more than the most desperate reaction to a societal failure by white conservatives. The birth rates of Latinas and black women outpace that of white women nearly 8 to 1. Double that number for college educated white women over the age of 30 while the same demographic of black and Latinas is still a 4 to 1 advantage. It is politically perfectly understandable why a group of people who wants to stay in power, to have the America that they want would turn to issues of abortion and contraception when they are being beaten in the breeding race by such a wide margin. Also, marrying race with gender, this gives the Right another canard they can use—that women are to blame for the loss of white conservative political power through their desire to hold positions of power in a world they see as a man’s domain. American women don’t like this and they don’t like Mitt Romney no matter how many times Ann Romney begs for America to get to know her husband.

THE MARIANNE GINTHER INTERVIEW, NEWT’S DAUGHTERS SPEAK OUT AND THE QUESTION OF THE DAY, “WHAT SHOULD INDEPENDENT VOTERS TAKE FROM THE WORDS OF MARIANNE GINTHER?”

The GOP presidential field is a mess. We, Ourselves, of The Collective have not seen such a tattered gathering of candidates in quite some time. And over the course of the next 24 hours things will get worse for at least one of those seeking the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. On the morning after the revelation that Mitt Romney has hidden millions of dollars in offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands, Newt Gingrich faces a series of exposing interviews from his second wife Marianne Ginther.

The story of Newt Gingrich is a tale of phoenix like rises and falls from ashes of his own creation. Once dubbed the smartest man in Washington Newt is far more likely to be recalled in history for his fatal flaws– his greed and his lust for women of a certain age. The millions of Gingrich supporters some of them noted bloggers on the Right will wave Mr Gingrich’s extramarital dalliances while shouting the name Bill Clinton and The Collective feels this is a fair comparison. What is unfair is that those on the Right refuse to examine Newt Gingrich’s character as well as they were and still are willing to examine that of former President Clinton.

The readers of this blog and the people of the United States have a clear picture of what American Conservatism stands against in the 21st Century. We, Ourselves know the American Conservative is against abortion rights for American women, against gun control, against the civil rights movement for American gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders and queers, against the separation of church and state, against voting rights for American minorities and against single payer health care for all Americans. Above all of these things they are against the 44th President of the United States to a level of vitriol that some of them even do not believe he was born in the United States.

But with this said what are American Conservatives for? They say they are for “The Family,” but what this really means is that they are for the unit of the family that was a fortress to their success from a century long dead. That century would be the 18th the last century before the changes from the Civil War to Women’s Suffrage changed the American sociopolitical landscape as surely as electricity and the interstate highway system changed the technoindustrial landscape. If this is the case, then how can American Conservatives with the lofty religious values regarding home and hearth justify their support for New Gingrich a man who has broken his vows not once but twice and committed adultery not once but twice?

The daughters of Newt’s first wife Jackie Battley have issued a video where they stand in support of their father. Jackie Cushman and Kathy Lubbers make an appeal to American Conservatives that the woman Gingrich left their mother for is lying today. The Collective will withhold judgment on this until all the facts are in and Ms Ginther can be heard.
