How Radical Conservatives May Succeed in Destroying Democracy
Door Chris Hedges, Truthdig / Alternet, 15 oktober 2010

There will be no swastikas this time but seas of red, white and blue flags and Christian crosses. No stiff-armed salutes, but recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance.
There is a yearning by tens of millions of Americans, lumped into a diffuse and fractious movement, to destroy the intellectual and scientific rigor of the Enlightenment

The ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes spent his life battling the assault on democracy by tyrants.(...) Aristophanes, who had the temerity to portray the ruling Greek tyrant, Cleon, as a dog, is the perfect playwright to turn to in trying to grasp the danger posed to us by movements from the tea party to militias to the Christian right, as well as the bankrupt and corrupt power elite that no longer concerns itself with the needs of its citizens. He saw the same corruption 2,400 years ago. He feared correctly that it would extinguish Athenian democracy. And he struggled in vain to rouse Athenians from their slumber.

Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, is a senior fellow at the Nation Institute. He writes a regular column for TruthDig every Monday. His latest book is Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle.

The NAACP Exposes Ties Between Tea Party and Racist Extremist Groups
Eric W. Dolan, AlterNet / Raw Story, 21 oktober 2010

The Tea Party movement has links to white supremacists, anti-immigration groups, "birthers" and other "extremists," according to new report. Caution: 'Although the report outlines several links between the Tea Party movement and hate groups, the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights and the NAACP explicitly reject the generalization that the Tea Party is a wholly racist or hateful movement.'

Fascist America: Is This Election the Next Turn?
Sara Robinson, Blog for our Future / Alternet, 22 oktober 2010

It's not fascism yet; but if the Tea Party manages to get its hands on the levers of power, it will be.

Met de relativerende opmerking: 'Zij die denken dat het nieuwe populistische rechts de politiek terugbrengt naar vooroorlogs fascisme zijn te paniekzaaierig.'
