The OP article looks like a remake of The Paranoid Style in American Politics by Richard Hofstader published in Harper's Magazine in 1964, which I read back when I thought conspiracies were some thing special.

When you think about it, all conspiracies are just normal politics.

Yep!!! It's just a cycle......

The leader of the Communist Party of the US states that his group is a wing of the Democratic Party.

No GOP bashing article will ever change that fact.


Evidence?

So he didnt' say that at all - here's your actual quote:


“Ah well, Yea we’re a part of what I kind of call the Progressive, pro-labor wing of the Democratic Party. I mean it’s no secret and we’re apart of a very broad movement of organizations: labor movements, civil rights movements, other movements, women’s movement, what not, that find their home in the Democratic Party.



so this is how he sees it - "what I kind of call" - you really should have stuck to the facts - it probably would have supported your point well enough, but now you are shown up as falsely manipulating information for partisan ends - something I suspect you get rabid about when your "opponents" do it!!

THANK YOU, Aloysius.

Please, don't abandon ship just to argue it on the other thread.

It isn't off topic at all, actually, when you bring it up like you did.

If it's off-topic, why did he bring it up in the first place?

Trolling?

Ah..yes, trolling and derailing and whatever it is he likes to do.
wait....let me check...........

Aloysius is exactly right...this is from xuen's OP, copied and pasted, the quote right there in black and white:

Bachtell: “Ah well, Yea we’re apart of what I kind of call the Progressive, pro-labor wing of the Democratic Party. I mean it’s no secret and we’re apart of a very broad movement of organizations: labor movements, civil rights movements, other movements, women’s movement, what not, that find their home in the Democratic Party.


gasp!!!!!!!!!

Jesus.

I answered one simple question and then didn't want to make a tangent in this topic.

But if it's on-topic, OK.

dude you misquoted the man.

I don't know what you're up to, and you know that you befuddle me with your cryptic one-liners. Yet never seem to address my questions. So - what is your point? Please? Yoda?

Do you have anything pertinent or constructive to add to this thread?

Exactly. The post-Depression era. FDR put millions of people to work. The Civilian Conservation Corps.... that is actually a fact.


Oh he did did he ?

FDR confiscated American gold, and silver from the 'masses', and that wasn't good enough from Fort Knox.

Then he rounded up all them evil Japanese-Americans(funny there weren't hypenated American names back then) I smell a 'conspiracy'.




The Paranoid Madness of the Democratic Party


Don't forget were all gonna die because the planet is out to get us.

Don't forget them evil bankers, and corporations, and gun owners are out to get us.

LOL that is what American politics is.

Which side is MORE paranoid than the other, and use machinations(not conspiracy) to fool the masses in to voting for them.

The most paranoid side WINS.

More like spiral ...

into totalitarianism.

Government never gets smaller, the budget and law book always get bigger, every election.

And now they own the night,

and know every purchase, every phone call made, every book read--and which pages lingered over, and all TV series watched very week etc...

An interesting point about how The Gold Reserve Act may actually be what got the U.S. GNP higher during the mid 1030s, rather than "fiscal" policy.....



Between 1933 and 1937 the GNP in the United States grew at an average rate of over 8 percent. This growth in real output is due primarily to a growth in the money supply M1, which grew at an average rate of 10 percent per year between 1933 and 1937. Previous held beliefs about the recovery from the Great Depression held that the growth was due to fiscal policy and the United States’ participation in World War II.

Oookay then.
THAT's disturbing. I've heard of all of those issues, but these details are utterly convincing.

We really are screwed. Thanks for the vid.
It's so depressing. Hate those guys.


( Have you ever read Captains & The Kings by Taylor Caldwell? It discusses the same thing, but during the American Civil War)

Despicable


(Now - can you help me "unknow" all of that??
Please? It leaves me feeling so hopeless for my kids and so unmotivated to do anything at all. That sucks.)

There it is.

American politics is like the matrix.

A choice between the RED pill or the Blue pill.

Just say no to drugs.
