Kent State Anniversary=May 4th. Ronald Reagan said he wanted a blood bath.

I was just listening to Neil Young’s Ohio since it was close to the massacre’s anniversary…tin Soldiers and Nixon coming (youtube link).

Three weeks before the Kent State massacre, California Governor Ronald Reagan issued the following statement "If it takes a bloodbath, let's get it over with. No more appeasement."

Nice one Ronnie.

Yet another reason why Murray Rothbard said of Ronald Reagan's legacy "Has the Reagan Administration done nothing good in its eight ghastly years on earth, you might ask? Yes, it has done one good thing; it has repealed the despotic 55-mile-per-hour highway speed limit. And that is it."

Ronald Reagan: An Autopsy by Murray N. Rothbard

Rothbard also correctly realized that the neoconservative movement had parasited into the Reagan Regime and corrupted it in his article:

"Two important new ingredients entered into, and helped reshape, the conservative movement during the mid 1970’s. One was the emergence of a small but vocal and politically powerful group of neo-conservatives (neocons), who were able, in a remarkably short time, to seize control of the think tanks, the opinion-molding institutions, and finally the politics, of the conservative movement. As ex-liberals, the neocons were greeted as important new converts from the enemy. More importantly, as ex-Trotskyites, the neocons were veteran politicos and organizers, schooled in Marxian cadre organizing and in manipulating the levers of power. They were shrewdly eager to place their own people in crucial opinion molding and money-raising positions, and in ousting those not willing to submit to the neocon program. Understanding the importance of financial support, the neocons knew how to sucker Old Right businessmen into giving them the monetary levers at their numerous foundations and think tanks. In contrast to free-market economists, for example, the neocons were eager to manipulate patriotic symbols and ethical doctrines, doing the microequivalent of Reagan and Bush’s wrapping themselves in the American Flag. Wrapping themselves, also, in such patriotic symbols as The Framers and the Constitution, as well as Family Values, the neocons were easily able to outflank free-market types and keep them narrowly confined to technical economic issues. In short the neocons were easily able to seize the moral and patriotic "high ground."-Rothbard"

So I think Ronald Reagan has become the Golden Cow of the neoonservative movement to worship (hey W. sucked, but remember Ronald Reagan, Hear hear) especially when I hear Rush Limbaugh constantly referencing the great Ronaldus Magnus every day.

i think the media's latest trounce

on sanford demonstrates that he is no friend of the establishment.

neocons

If we could get rid the neocons we might be OK, but we would probably still get the big government stuff.

ecorob's picture

the msm sold us a "bill of goods"...

on the "superhero" ronnie, aka, the gipper...as the savior of the world from communism (collapse of the ussr) and the savior of our country from "liberalism" (carter)...

when, in truth, by placing ghwbush in the vice presidency he placed the final piece of the puzzle into the nwo plans...from 1988 until now we have had bush/clinton/bush in control...REAL CONTROL, not just the CIA behind the scenes control and vice presidency control already exerted by the satanic elder bush...

and lets not forget that it was also reagan who implemented the draconian drugs laws, drug tests, and drug cartel influence on america...

so, tell me again faux news, how is reagan the hero of our country that EVERYBODY aspires to be like?...and now, the author of this thread relays how he accepted a "blood bath" to quiet the vietnam war protesters!
...how did that work out for you, ronnie? or, as i like to affectionately call him...666...for the letters in his name...ronald wilson reagan! (just something to keep you CT's amused (it has kept me "amused" for 29 years...)

...so, again, who are the real heroes of our lifetime? (Ron Paul company accepted)

i say JFK, RFK, and MLK...tragic how the nwo/cfr/bushies killed them all, isn't it?

O Captain, My Captain, rise up and hear the bells!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

heh

I wouldn't go that far. I'm not so sure about the "New World Order" thing..

Trying to pretend Reagan was a good guy gags me

thanks for the reminder.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

He became a good guy as soon as he became "poor old ron"

I suppose we were all supposed to share his memory.
