Is it 1984 yet? Or if you can’t spell Frederick Douglass, the house bets you’re a Tea Person.

30 Jul

I will state up front that Mother Jones has a left leaning, progressive bias.  Their history is rooted in investigative journalism and they use facts, not deceit, opinion or the shrill alarm of congenital paranoids to substantiate the stories they write. The group which is the focus of this story could care less about the American public. They serve themselves, their social connections and the industries whom they are paid by to lobby for. (Lobby: a civil war era term used to describe people who hung around in the Lobby of the capital hoping to gain access to elected officials.) These folks can pretend with all the bluff and bluster of an award winning actor that they have the public good at heart, but they do not. They cannot stand the very idea of America. Every effort this group is making is to disseminate propaganda, not to improve the lives of people or to improve the efficiency of government. They want to return to 1850 or 1950 and scare the shit out of the fearful and those incapable of critical thinking in order to accomplish their goals. The bad news? This group exists. The good news? They can’t spell.
