Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Remembers John Birch

Nobody Remembers

I was thumbing through a few liberals blogs last night, when I came upon a blog called: Liberal America: The article was titled: The Koch Brothers, Ron and Rand Paul, and the John Birch Society.John Birch

Whoa. This guy was WORRIED. According to him, the John Birch Society, that evil, radical, right-wing KKK organization from the 1950’s, has been resurrected AGAIN…as the Tea Party. And the Koch Brothers are funding it.

The JBS was founded in 1958 by Robert Welch, a Massachusetts Republican Party official, wealthy business man, and board member of the ultra conservative National Review. It was named after a U.S. Intelligence officer who was killed by Chinese Communist shortly after World War II.

He goes on to say that the members of the John Birch Society do NOT want to tax the rich, want regular people to be poor, uneducated and powerless, and union less.

Fred Koch, was an original founding member and backer of the JBS.

In 1980, David Koch was the Libertarian Party Candidate for Vice President.

And now, the Koch Brothers fund the Tea Party Express and Americans for Prosperity.Koch Brothers

So, the Tea Party, has taken up the very same principles as the John Birch Society, but they just don’t know it yet. As you can see below, they are almost identical. Most Tea Party people would cringe at the comparison.  Why? Because the progressives have been working for years to destroy the common rights of the people, and so, a John Birch Society member was vilified with relentless animosity. The name of John Birch was put right up there with Hitler.

Pure propaganda, and lies.

Still…as we see by the results last election—that poor liberal blogger must be freaking out…so let’s see exactly what is so scary about the John Birch Society? :

Here’s a few lines from their statement of principles, printed in the Congressional Record on June 12, 1962:


With very few exceptions the members of the John Birch Society are deeply religious people. Our hope is to make better Catholics, better Protestants, better Jews,—or better Moslems, out of those who belong to the society. Our never-ending concern is with morality, integrity and purpose.

We believe that communism is as utterly incompatible with all religion as it is contemptuous of all morality and destructive of freedom. It is intrinsically evil. It must be opposed, therefore, with equal firmness, on religious grounds, moral ground and political grounds. Our ultimate quarrel with the Communists is that they insist on imposing that way of life on the rest of us by murder, treason, and cruelty rather than by persuasion.

The present United Nations was designed by its founders for the exactly opposite purpose of increasing the rigidity of government controls over the lives and affairs of individual men. We believe it has become, as it was intended to become a major instrumentality for the establishment of a one world Communist tyranny over the population of the whole earth. One of our most immediate objectives, therefore, is to get the United State out of the United Nations, and the United Nations out of the United States.

We believe that a constitutional republic, such as our founding fathers gave us, is probably the best of all forms of government. We believe that a democracy, which they tried hard to obviate, and into which the liberals have been trying for fifty years to convert our republic, is one the worst of all forms of government. This is a republic, not a democracy: let’s keep it that way.

We are opposed to collectivism as a political and economic system, even when it does not have the police-state features of communism. We are opposed to it no matter whether the collectivism be called socialism, or the welfare state of the New Deal, or the Fair Deal or the New Frontier, or advanced under some other semantic disguises. We believe that increasing the size of government, increasing the centralization of government, and increasing the functions of government all act as brakes on material progress and as destroyers of personal freedom.

It is extremely important in our case to keep our township, city, county, and state government from being bribed and coerced into coming under one direct chain of control from Washington.

We think it is even more important for the government to obey the laws than for the people to do so. But for thirty years we have had a steady stream of government which increasingly have regarded our laws and even our Constitution as mere pieces of paper, which should not be allowed to stand in the way of what they, in their omniscient benevolence, considered to be “for the greatest good of the greatest number.” We want a restoration of a “government of laws and not of men” in this country, and if a few impeachments are necessary to bring that about , then we are all for impeachment.

So, there you go. Fine thoughts, and sound thinking all around. In the tavern of rational logic the pints would raise the toasts to “ALL HAIL the Republic!” would be …

Okay…we could tweet it, and then drink. Family and fReedom

The fight between the progressives (communist/Marxist) and the people who believe in the right to their own freedom, has been going on forever.

They just don’t teach history anymore. And they have made SURE that the “lies” about the Tea Party and the John Birch Society just keep piling up.

Oh…one more thing:

He said this:

William F. Buckley, Jr., widely recognized as the father of modern American Conservatism and the founder of the National Review, became concerned about the growing influence of the JBS over the Republican Party and Conservative politics. Beginning with his February, 1962 essay, Buckley began warning readers of the dangers posed by the JBS, eventually effectively removing it from the GOP and banishing its followers to the far right-wing fringe of American political thought.

Was this the moment the Republican Party joined up with the Progressives and split from the people?

After all, FDR really DID have 17 card-carrying communists in his administration.

Anyway, here’s their website: But let me warn you:

It’s really ….nice.
