Looking for something "scary"?; Great liberal quotations, part 2

"If the very old will remember, the very young will listen." — Chief Dan George

HALLOWEEN ON SUNDAY AND ELECTION DAY ON TUESDAY? Two out of three ain't bad, but if you want something really really scary, here are a few more words from the lips of famous Liberals:

"This nation, this generation, in this hour, has man's first chance to build a Great Society, a place where the meaning of man's life matches the marvels of man's labor." — LBJ

"First, Ah'm gonna give you a two-minute lecture on integrity, and then Ah'm gonna ruin you." — LBJ (to a Texas politician)

"A revolution is coming . . " — Robert F. Kennedy

"There is a revolution coming. It will not be like revolutions of the past. It will originate with the individual and with culture . . . " — Charles Reich *

"When the sexual energy of the people is liberated they will break the chains." — Julian Beck

"The back seat produced the sexual revolution." — Jerry Rubin

"The object is for everyone to do their own thing, but the thing is to make one's thing the Revolution." — Eldridge Cleaver

"A revolution does not march in a straight line. It wanders where it can, retreats before superior forces, advances wherever it has room, attacks whenever the enemy retreats or bluffs and, above all, is possessed of enormous patience." — Mar Tse-tung

"Women must become revolutionary. This cannot be evolution but revolution." — Shirley Chisholm

"By the end, everybody had a label — pig, liberal, radical, revolutionary . . . If you had everything but a gun, you were a radical but not a revolutionary." — Jerry Rubin

"American youth is looking for a reason to die." — Jerry Rubin

"Violence is as American as cherry pie." — Stokely Carmichael

"We had a sense of importance that would have led us to risk our lives for our rhetoric." — Jerry Rubin

"The bigger the mess we could make, the better . . . We had to do whatever we had to do." — William Ayres

"There were no 'innocent Americans.'" — Mrs. William Ayres

"High school studfents are the largest oppressed minority in America." — Jerry Rubin

"Our parents are our first oppressors." — Jerry Rubin

"We need to soak the rich because they had good parents." — New Republic (2010)

"Up against the wall, m------s!" — Columbia University students (1968)

"The first part of the Yippie program, you know, is [like] kill your parents." — Rubin

"Shoot to Live!" — the Weathermen

"Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker. I hope his kidneys fail." — Wanda Sykes

"Why hang out with celebrities when I can hang out with the people who made me one?" — B. Obama (White House correspondents' dinner)

"Nobody's changing what you've got. You get to keep it." — B. Obama

"There comes a time when you've made enough money!" — B. Obama

"Almost every great innovation was [created] by government." — Joe Biden

"I'd throw dollars out of helicopters if I had to, to stimulate the economy." — Ben Bernanke

"Except for me, we'd be in a world-wide Depression." — Harry Reid


Konrad Adenauer once said, "We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon." In the 1960s Norman Thomas said:

"If you want a symbolic gesture, don't burn the flag, wash it."

* Speaking of "culture," November 2, 2010 is another mile marker on our long cultural revolution. What did Charles Reich mean when he said it would originate with culture? The answer to that one is "fundamental cultural change" (in part entertainment, part education, and part media propaganda). So far the liberals, the radicals, and the revolutionaries must be very pleased with their "progress."

In 2010 a poll asked the question, "Is the fourth of July one of our most important holidays?" and only 63 percent said "Yes"! Only 54% agreed that America is a nation "with liberty and justice for all."

And that was after "ObamaCare" was passed! Every day more and more people are finding out that we won't get to "keep" what we have. Someone said that "assisted living centers" may soon have Assisted-dying Annexes.

Besides that, the economy hasn't "turned the corner" yet — and may not have even "hit bottom." Liberals have been playing Trick or Treat for far too long.

The 1994 off-year election was laughed at as a "white male temper tantrum." The 2010 elections are going to be a "tantrum" by BOTH sexes, including the mama grizzlies! The liberals won't be laughing this time!


P.S. The late congressman Adam Clayton Powell once said:

"Beware of Greeks bearing gifts, colored men looking for loans, and whites who 'understand' the Negro." [That includes "liberal whites," by the way.]

PPS: Before you cast your ballot this week, ask yourself why the United States has to be the only nation in the whole world with an OPEN BORDER??
