When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. In this video, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, illuminates the life of the mild-mannered 19th Century German whose ideas led to the rise of some of the most brutal dictators in world history
I have no love for the Confederacy. Slavery was evil. The cause of Southern secession was unjust and deserved to be defeated.
However, this abrupt cultural paroxysm in which monuments honoring rebel leaders and soldiers are torn down or removed in the dead of night is not a healthy development. Decisions like this should be made by townships and cities after a healthy debate and then a vote.
This rush on the part of craven politicians and crazed activists is just virtue signaling. They are more righteous than you. They are better people than those Southern rednecks.
But just as same sex marriage wasn’t really about same sex marriage. And Obamacare wasn’t really about health care. We will all discover that the tearing down of these monuments is not about Southern monuments.
The scandals that characterize the Obama regime are unique in their mind-boggling numbers, and the manner in which the Pratetorian media have refused to report, much less investigate, the most corrupt administration in American history.
The Benghazi atrocity most certainly leads directly into the Oval Office. That’s why the Democrats are doing everything to avoid telling the truth. You can be sure if Benghazi happened under a Republican POTUS, he would have been impeached—and quite rightly—a long time ago.
Charles Krauthammer compares the latest email revelations to the Nixon tapes.
Obama calls them navigators.
As always, the radical left manipulates language in order to create a new reality. It’s a tactic pioneered by the Bolsheviks, and then brought to it’s logical apotheosis in Mao’s “Cultural Revolution,” which led directly to the murder of 60 million people.
No surprise here, but the Obama zombies who have been appointed Obamacare, ahem, navigators, are — drum roll, please — Planned Parenthood ghouls.
