Is That Why They Call Them “Red States”?

Pretty fucking astounding list of quotes, comparing the rhetoric of David Horowitz’s “Mommy, there’s a liberal college professor under my bed” movement and Mao Tse-Tung’s “Mother, we must exterminate the traitorous bourgeouis college professors under my bed” movement.

The similarities are truly uncanny.

[Props to mk for the title recommendation]

  1. Good gravy……These people are just awful.
    I guess a ‘liberal’ prof is one that encourages
    students to question their preconceived notions
    regarding the world around them. Hmmph…..Certainly
    wouldn’t want any of that ‘questioning the status
    quo’ nonsense to take place in an institute of higher learning ….
    ….Typical Rightwing/corporate garbage -
    ‘Don’t try to take on the message….Simply use
    character assassination to silence the messenger’.
    If they weren’t so destructive and dangerous,
    these ‘conservatives’ would actually be pretty funny…..

  2. Totally! I find myself laughing at the ridiculousness of it all, and then I remember that it’s actually happening.

  3. Pretty astounding!! Very impertinent of that Horowitz fellow, to say nothong of counter-revolutionary.
    What nerve to use the Left’s own justifications and tactics and try to get away with it.

    To the ramparts everyone!!

  4. Lol……yeah. Okay.”the left’s own
    tactics”……Sorry, I’m a bit chagrined to say
    that people on the ‘left’ generally attempt to
    support their arguements with facts and a realistic
    interpretation of the given situation - that’s why we’re
    so easily defeated. Americans have short attention
    spans and limited time….they respond much better to sound bites, platitudes,
    character attacks and fear tactics - and those are essentially the exclusive
    tactics of the right. Let’s see….as an example….Oh, I know!
    How about every single political campaign the right have run since -at least- the turn of the century.”The left’s own tactics” indeed.
    Stuff and nonsense.
