Everybody knows - but no one wants to say - that the Democratic Party has become the party of special interest bigots and racial dividers.

It is important for conservatives to make distinctions between those on the Left who were (and are) traitors or self-conceived enemies of the United States, and those who were (and are) the fellow-travelers of enemies of the United States, and those who are neither traitors, nor enemies, nor friends and protectors of enemies, but are American patriots who disagree with conservatives over tactical and policy issues.

The difference between the Paleo-cranks and the Commie-cranks is that the Communists are in love with an America in the future that's designed in their image and the Paleos are in love with the America of the 18th Century.

The so-called peace movement today is led by the same hate-America radicals who supported America's totalitarian enemies during the Cold War.
