One of Andrew Breitbart's nemeses, (and there were many) Max Blumenthal wrote once of The Powell Memo (a smoking gun of Hilary Clinton's "vast right-wing conspiracy") ...
"...To roll back the surge of democracy that supposedly threatened corporate predominance, Powell urged the Chamber of Commerce to finance the creation of a new political and cultural infrastructure — a “counter-establishment” capable of unraveling the liberal establishment. The infrastructure would consist of pseudo-scholarly journals, “experts” promoted through speakers bureaus, campus pressure groups, publishing houses, lobbyists and partisan idea factories masquerading as think tanks. He wrote that operatives of the network would have to affect a “more aggressive attitude,” leveling relentless personal attacks against the perceived enemies of big business. By the last days of the Nixon administration, Attorney General John Mitchell was boasting that his conservative friends were going to take the country “so far to the right we won’t recognize it.”
This is of course the exact opposite of what Breitbart wailed about for the last twenty years of his life... the left-leaning conspiracy of modern media... his personal justification for pushing and bullying a right-wing agenda that he believed was being held back from the American people...
Well, the right seems to have captured the podium and where has it gotten the United States? How is our financial situation? How is our health? How is our environment? How is the education system? How is the global empire faring?
Conservatism in this country has done more damage to America that the Empire of Japan, Nazi Germany, The Soviet Union and International Terrorism combined.
Where is our manufacturing infrastructure?
Where have pensions, and unemployment compensation gone?
Where are the Savings & Loans institutions?
Why has our military spent twice as long fighting in Afghanistan than it did in World War Two?
The list goes on. What made America great in the eyes of the world and in the lives of Americans has been attacked, beaten, derided and bombed.
Who polluted the Susquehanna River?
Who stole the consumer's money from MF Global?
The answers to questions like these and what we do about them, will determine if we survive as a free nation this century. And this is precisely where the right-wing media is betraying us.
If terrorist attacks made as many people homeless in the United States as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, we would have nuked Saudi Arabia by now.
Conservatives are wrong. Republicans, yes even your neighbors, friends and family members are right-wing enablers and enemies of the American way of life. Sadly, most aren't even aware of their role in the end of the American Republic. They are dupes of the media, Breibart's media, but he doesn't have to live with the consequences anymore. He left that to us.
