  •  And the GOP is now the Birchers (7+ / 0-)

    From My Diary of about a year ago, Doesn't anyone remember the John Birch Society?

    The 2012 Republican Party is barely distinguishable from the John Birch Society.  It is funded in large part by the Koch brothers, the heirs of Fred Koch, one of the Birch Society's founding members.  The Kochs may not be members of the Society, but their ideas -- extreme  laissez-faire capitalism with communism lurking in any regulation, unions, health care and even Civil Rights laws -- are virtually the same. (One of the current right's few attempts to avoid looking like Birchers is morphing communism into "socialism." No need to explain to the faithful that they're really the same.)
    What is infuriating is not just that the Republican Party has gone mostly Bircher, but that the media refuses to recognize this.  One party is advocating killing the New Deal, starving government by cutting taxes on the wealthiest, using the noxious voter-suppression methods of the most vicious segregationists, and tolerating racist conspiracy theories.  That is not business as usual.

    The GOP: "You can always go to the Emergency Room."
