The future according to some

I heard an interesting thought the other day.

One of my friends told me that his left-leaning son had told him that he was not worried about conservatives, after all within twenty years they will all be dead.

We deserve better

    Looks like Anonymous has been reading a little too much Daily Caller and hanging out in the Heritage Foundation lounge.

    The above referenced JFK writing was from his personal diary. It was sold a few years back at auction by his longtime research assistant. A simple search will confirm that.

    “When JFK said that Hitler ‘had in him the stuff of which legends are made,’ he was speaking to the mystery surrounding him, not the evil he demonstrated to the world,” Henderson told People. “Nowhere in this diary, or in any of his writings, is there any indication of sympathy for Nazi crimes or cause.” JFK, after the war was a journalist and he also was a historian of some note. He was writing in those contexts.

    As for FDR and Mussolini:
    After 1945, the term “fascist” conjured up images of Nazi death camps, but in the 1930s it had a very different connotation, meaning the centralization of political power as in Benito Mussolini’s Italy and of a “third way” between communism and capitalism. While most American businessmen thought Roosevelt was hostile to them, critics on the left said he was too friendly. Comparisons of American domestic programs to fascist economics are not necessarily pejorative as one of the motives behind the Interstate Highway System was that President Eisenhower was impressed by Adolf Hitler’s autobahn system.Early in Roosevelt’s first term, supporters and critics alike found similarities between the National Recovery Administration (NRA) and Italian corporatism. In 1935 and 1936, after Italy invaded Ethiopia and the Supreme Court struck down the NRA, contemporaries stopped comparing the NRA to Italian corporatism. Interest in the subject returned in 1973, when two prominent historians[who?] wrote articles on resemblances between the New Deal and fascist economics. According to James Q. Whitman, by the late 1980s it was “almost routine” for New Deal historians to identify similarities between the New Deal and fascist economic programs.Similarities are in anti-depression policies as in totality the New Deal and fascism were very different.

    Perhaps a better way of looking at things is to see what the CURRENT political parties are doing (Locking immigrant children in cages and supporting Klan rallies seems okay with the GOP these days) and not what happened 150 years ago.

    That’s what their teachers and professors tell them.

    Hatred is just as strong in the Democrat party today as it was the day John Wilkes Booth killed the first Republican President; Nathan Bedford Forrest lead the Ku Klux Klan; James Earl Ray killed Martin Luther King, Jr.; etc.

    John F. Kennedy wrote glowingly about Adolf Hitler after returning from a trip to Europe in his college days. He characterized Hitler as having “stuff of which legends are made”.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt (and many in his administration) very much admired Benito Mussolini.

    Enough said. If you understand the history of the Democrat party and can still be a Democrat then you be you. You should, however, stop calling everyone else things that Democrats have been for generations: racists, misogynists, violent, murderous, etc.
