The finger, having accused, points

Illustrations from the May 1945 issue of the National Police Gazette. A time of grand-standing, politically power-crazed Government oppressing the brilliant by crushing dissent, fear-mongering, pandering to the gullible and telling the easily manipulated there was a bogey-man under the bed. People think they have it bad today...

  1. Hey you know who was a Democrat? Estes Kefauver. Another lefty? Frederic Wertham.

    Why are republicans demonized for trying to protect America from a few individuals, while Democrats are praised for giving a few individuals nanny control over the entire population?

  2. Oh, I don't know. Maybe because Republicans are oppressive, fear-mongering power mad psychos interested only in crushing freedom beneath their boots?

  3. Repeating, more slowly...

    Republicans... sometimes overreact in protecting America from enemies. Sometimes we express moral disapproval of abberant behavior.

    Democrats.. always overreact in protecting people from too much "freedom" - i.e. having too much money, facing consequences of bad decisions, protecting delicate ears with speech codes, trying to stomp out free-speech alternatives (like that pesky omnipotent AM band, the only conservative access to media), banning comics "for the children!"... the list goes on and on.

    Dems also don;t seem to understand the difference between expressing moral disapproval (which Republicans like to do), and using the force of law to demand compliance (which Democrats like to do)

  4. Maybe if the Republicans had spent more time governing instead of trolling for anonymous gay sex in airport bathrooms and starting useless wars based on lies, they might have a shred of credibility. As it is, they had their chance and they blew it.

    Am also amused at the concept of conservative media being restricted to AM radio. I guess Fox News underwent some big changes in the past sixty seconds.
