Another one-time member of the Reagan administration expresses his frustration with the state of the right: My break with the extreme right.
All of today’s right-wing darlings got there by mastering what Burke feared most: screaming “J’accuse! J’accuse!” Turning people against each other. Taking seeds of fear, anger and hatred and planting them to grow a new crop.
Indeed. This is certainly the behavior of people of like Limbaugh, Breitbart’s progeny, and any number of bloggers and radio talk show host. Is it rampant anit-intellectualism based primarily in mindless opposition to “liberalism” (whatever that may mean).
