Radical Right on Site Map subfolders
Bob Altemeyer's site, The
Authoritarians, "... is about
what happened to the American government after
"conservatives" gained control of Congress in the 1990s
and the White House in 2000. It’s about the disastrous
decisions that government made, which have created the
enormous problems we face now. It’s about the corruption
that rotted the Congress. It’s about how traditional
conservatism has nearly been destroyed by
authoritarianism. It’s about how the "Religious Right"
teamed up with amoral authoritarian leaders to push its
un-democratic agenda onto the country."
Without a positive agenda of its own, the Republicans
are being defined by extremist voices - from the
"birthers" who insist Obama was born on foreign soil to
"race-baiting" media bloviators like Glen Beck of Fox
News, who recently proclaimed that Obama "has a deep-seated
hatred for white people." Most Americans now see the
Republicans as "a right wing, Southern regional party" hostile
to minorities, immigrants, women, city dwellers, and
gays. America has always had its share of "loons," said
Leonard Pitts in The Miami Herald. "For Republicans,
though, lunacy has become the show, a circus of extremism that
now defines them." [The Week, August 14, 2009]
