Far Right Republicans Return To Their Roots

Those in control of the Republcan Party today are those who were on the fringe in the not too distant past. They have far more in common with the Birchers, KKK, and neo-Nazis than with traditional Republicans. With their support eroding they are falling back to their old tactics to maintain their base, as we see an increasing use of code words for anti-semitism and racism. A column at attempts to deny the growing anti-Semitism on the right which is fueling their claims of a war on Christmas. I do not find passages such as this very reassuring:

The sad fact is that the ACLU is made up in good part of Jews, and it is that organization and its lawyers who are leading the assault against Christmas. What makes it particularly unfortunate is that most Jews are not only opposed to the policies of the ACLU, but are embarrassed by and ashamed of the organization. However, when every ACLU lawyer who appears on TV to announce the latest attempt to remove Christian symbols and traditions from America seems to be Jewish, it’s all too easy for Christians to assume the rest of us support this vile campaign.
