Kent State Anniversary=May 4th. Ronald Reagan said he wanted a blood bath.Submitted by Invalid10 on Tue, 05/05/2009 - 23:17
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 Yes, it has done one good thing; it has repealed the despotic 55-mile-per-hour highway speed limit.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."
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.
