Speechless, I Am

I love the person who sent this to me, who agrees with it entirely, she says, but the video clip here is quite likely the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of in my life:


Yes. It’s true. “Commies” are trying to take down America, and they’ve succeeded, pretty much, by following the point-by-point agenda revealed in “The Naked Communist,” a tell-all, we’re told, by a former FBI agent.

Google Rep. Curtis Bowers. He appears to be a wellspring of misguided, albeit sincere, fears that rooms full of dedicated Communist “professionals” in their 60s, 70s, and even 80s — with briefcases! — have pretty much won the day; you’re suffering from their successes far more than you realize, evidently. I think that perhaps Rep. Bowers is in a bit over his head. Further, the alleged Josef Stalin quote below is not prescient because of Communism, regardless of his intent. The Religious Right has corruptively used these three pillars of American strength far more egregiously, and far more effectively, to damage our nation than stadiums full of Bolsheviks.

Let the eldercommies totter off into the night. It’s men like Bowers who frighten me a whole lot more, because they multiply and become Tea Party organizers, pastors, legislators, and media pundits. Tragically, good people, like the woman who sent this to me, take them at their word, believing it to be the Word, and perpetuate the whole thing by voting. And hitting the “send” button.

So. Josef Stalin, on how to weaken the United States, as quoted in the video link above:

“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”
