Revenge of the ‛60s Radicals

Written on Monday, March 26, 2012 by

60s radicals

I graduated from high school in 1968, the best known year of the fabled ‘60s decade.  My generation was known as the “hippy generation,” a generation characterized by drugs, anti-war demonstrations, and long greasy hair.  Suffice it to say that a person can be IN a generation without being OF that generation.  That was me.  While my peers were growing their hair and dodging the draft, I had a crewcut and served in the Marine Corps.  As for drugs, they weren’t even on my radar screen.

I once naively believed that with the election of Ronald Reagan America had experienced a rebirth of patriotism, respect for the military, and a return to the traditional values that made America great.  I thought we had finally put the last vestiges of the ‘60s behind us.  Boy was I mistaken.  With President Obama in office, the ‘60s radicals who had not been heard from in a while crawled out of the woodwork with a vengeance.  By supporting, advising, and guiding Barack Obama, former members of various organizations such as the misnamed Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the even more radical Weathermen are once again influencing America’s future.

Writing for Townhall magazine, Kathy Jessup had this to say about the reemerging influence of 60’s radicals on American politics and culture: “…unlike tie-dye shirts and platform shoes, the Marxist or Maoist or socialist SDS politics never went dormant.  Former leaders of the original SDS and also its splinter Weatherman group—labeled ‘a domestic terrorist group’ by the FBI—are installed in academia, organized labor, advocacy organizations and in the highest levels of the Obama administration…In fact, the ‘60s college-campus political phenomenon seeded today’s new left.”

It turns out that in the intervening years, ‘60s radicals have not just been biding their time.  Rather, they have spent their adult years climbing the career ladder in higher education, organized labor, and various advocacy groups and using their positions to prepare for a reemergence once America elected a president more open to their Marxist views.  The grown up radicals got just what they wanted with the election of Barack Obama.  Those who lived through the ‘60s will recognize the names of William Ayres, Bernadine Dohrn, Tom Hayden, and Mark Rudd—big names among the most radical of ‘60s radicals, and all sharing various ties to President Obama. If you are too young to remember these names, search for them on the Internet.  Doing so will be a real eye opener.

There is an old saying that you can tell a lot about a person by who his friends are.  President Obama’s friends are some the most vociferous anti-American radicals in our nation’s history.  They are Marxists, Maoists, socialists, and communists who hate America and everything it stands for, and they are helping establish Obama’s agenda.   Next time you find yourself wondering why President Obama is so anti-military, anti-Christian, and anti-business, just consider where he gets his advice.  The ‘60s were about more than just burning bras and draft cards.  They were also about burning down the values that made America great and replacing them with the socialist values of ‘60s radicals.

    If you, as a politician, plan to take us to war it is best that you understand what you are getting us all into.
    If Buch and Chainy, and the rest of those loons had been to war they might think better then to send people to die for some trumped up oil game.

    300,000,000 weapons are in the hands of Americans now.
    Ya, they could all be taken away, right…
    The NRA’s LaPeePee was for background checks and then he changed
    his mind even though 85% of the NRA are for it.
    Again, if you want to send people to die in a war it is best you know what it is like…
    Chainy had 5 deferments. Weinberg had nearly as many…
    President Eisenhower said… “Beware of the military/industrial complex…”
    Sounds like he was talking about Chainy…
