Although perhaps not so secret, these days. Still, it’s fascinating to watch the putative heirs of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr. twist themselves into knots defending dictators, one-party states and egomaniacal nut-jobs abroad, and wannabe komissars and larval-stage strong-men at home. Some recent examples:
Cold Fury vivisects Oliver Stone, mostly by just permitting him to condemn himself out of his own mouth.
Don Surber catches Bill Maher having wet dreams about black men with guns.
Powerline gives Thomas Friedman the floor, where he expresses a desire that “we” could be China for a day.
And those seeking, I presume, to restore the Aztec empire are captured in photographs by Donald Douglas.
Meanwhile, people who fled to this country to escape totalitarian governments are baffled and fearful over our headlong rush to the socialist dystopia.
