"Student radicals behaved like feral beasts not only because of the group dynamic of a crowd, but because they had no criticism." — Ann Coulter, re 1960s ("Demonic; how the liberal mob is endangering America")

"You may think you're helping us, but you're not." — Wisconsin state legislator (Dem), to "protester" in gallery

CULTURAL "EVOLUTION" OR JUST DEGENERATION? Some recent headlines:

- Five-year-old girl drowns baby brother

- Eight-year-old murders five year old

- Physics professor, age 71, arrested on on-line prostitution charges

- Former president of U. of New Mexico, age 68, also arrested

- Hugh Hefner, age unknown, stood up at the altar by 25-year-old

- Summer weather brings nightly shootings of all ages in most U.S. cities

- Hearings held on ATF gun-running scandal

- Floods in Minot, ND caused by snow-melt in Saskatchewan

- Al Gore continues to nag us about "global warming" and "rising seas" (from his home on the beach)

- New York "legalizes" homosexual marriage (greatly increasing the need for gay divorce lawyers, I suppose)

- Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) says the Prez is becoming "an absolute monarch"

BTW, Nadler also said that "we have been sliding for 70 years to a situation where Congress has nothing to do with the decision about whether to go to war or not," and, that we could become an empire rather than a Republic.

The good news is that the majority still favor the Constitutional Republic idea, but the bad news is that once a Caesar gets into power, it may be to late to stop him.

Our Fearless Leader is the first black President to sue Arizona on behalf of an invading horde of drug gang bangers and pimps. Our FL is the first black President run a car company, fire its CEO, and order Chrysler to sell to Fiat and to dump dealerships (based upon which article of the Constitution he doesn't have a clue. Or care).

[I ought to write a column on "The Top Ten Stupidest Things Ever Done by the Feds." High on the list would be the subsidizing and mandating of ethanol from corn and restricting oil drilling. Also on the list would be subsidizing new car purchases such as the Volt, plus having taxpayers help buy new foreign cars (Cash-for-Clunkers). BTW, those Chrysler dealers who were shut down are now mostly selling Toyotas, Hondas, and Nissans.]

Anyway, I started reviewing Ann Coulter's new book last week, and I want to continue to emphasize its importance. Some of the major points it documents are:

1) The French and American Revolutions were nearly polar opposites.

2) The French, Russian, and Maoist ones, plus the Hitler-Mussolini Axis, were virtually all cut out of the same cloth.

3) The 1960s "Youth" revolution was nearly a mirror-image of 1860s Nihilism in Russia

[see www.RenewAmerica.com/columns/Dahlgren/100826 ] which eventually yielded the Bolshevik Revolution.

4) Both had two camps: one favoring immediate revolt and another favoring patient, stealth Revolution (or in today's terms, "transformation").

5) The 1960s radicals were the rich kids compared to the Young Americans for Freedom (the SDS is the group that had the most spoiled brats).

6) Neither the university administrations nor the mainstream press criticized those brats.

7) Many of those brats — even violent felons — ended up on the university faculties (and are still "influencing" our children); others still are working for the Federal government, including the White House.

P.S. Regarding the "war" in Libya, the Prez essentially transferred the initiative and real power to NATO — even though we're still stuck with most of the bill. And for what, really — the "Arab Spring"? Here's an excerpt from an article in today's Jewish World Review:

"The whole history of humanity is littered with such populist revolutions that only bring in their wake oppression and dictatorship, many times worse than the regime that they dispossessed. The French and Russian revolutions are only two examples of this bitter historical truth. The current "Arab spring" shows signs of turning into such a type of disaster as well."

PPS: This Prez could be the first black President to give Israel a 30-day "notice" to give up land (or else!) — if current rumors are true. As someone said in "Star Wars," I have a bad feeling about this.

More to come, I'm afraid.


A few closing quottions:

"You are not going, I hope, to leave the destinies of the British Empire to prigs and pedants . . . Cosmopolitan critics, men who are the friends of every country save their own." — Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1882)

"These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own." — G.K. Chesterton

"And there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake." — Revelation
