Skip the Green Beer today and visit the Whiskey Bar for its Scenes from the Cultural Revolution

Nothing more needs to be added to this BRILLIANT juxtaposition of quotes from the militant cultural conservatives of Mao's China and 21st century Amerika.

The Whiskey Bar
doesn't add commentary to its well-chosen quotations, so I shouldn't either, but it is especially chilling to think about the potential destructive power of patriotic students in the hands of the ruling powers. I'm getting to be very afraid of my flag-waving and yellow-beribboned young neighbors who have been brought up to actually BELIEVE that Ronald Reagan was a great president. The Liberal media is dead (or at least playing dead). The Liberals in government are gone (or impotent and ignored by the "liberal" media). Only a few Liberal professors left in academe are still willing to quietly whisper a dissenting truth or two to our youth. So there is a SERIOUS effort afoot to demonize them, just as Marxists like Angela Davis, Eugene Genovese and Herbert Marcuse were hounded from state universities when we were young.

Sorry, I didn't mean to distract you on your way to The Bar, but I couldn't help myself.

Erin go Bragh,
True Blue Liberal
