Earlier this month I applauded
columnist James Pinkerton for his powerful denunciation of the STRIVE bill
, in which he demonstrated an exemplary grasp of the fraudulent economics and despicable politics of this specimen of special interest log-rolling:
â€?the STRIVE Actâ€¦ represents one groupâ€™s attempt to manipulate the system against another group - and also against the national interest. Do you think the working class in America has it too good? Do you want to make sure that you always have the option of replacing your current workers - the ones who do your meatpacking, or landscaping, or household toiling - with even hungrier workers? And do you not care about crime and social chaos, as long as they happen in someone elseâ€™s neighborhood? Or perhaps disuniting the whole United States, after youâ€™re dead? Then STRIVE is for you.
Today I do not applaud Pinkertonâ€™s hopeful essay on Presidential aspirant Mike Huckabee Huckabee a real right-wing long shot Newsday.com April 26 2007
. While it may be true that, generally,
Huckabee is not far from where the country is right now - even if, right now, he`s a long way from the White House.
Huckabee is a real conservative. He is anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, anti-gun control, anti-open immigration
has to be questioned. VDARE.com has been watching Huckabee for a while
. The sight is not pleasant. He has been an enthusiastic participant in the Majority-guilt
dance, and has also displayed precisely the same irresponsible Chamber of Commerce low wage lust
which Pinkerton so eloquently denounced. Only two years ago he was denouncing
an Arkansas bill to restrain illegalâ€™s access to State services as â€?race-baiting and demagogueryâ€?.
Mike Huckabee, like Sam Brownback
, appears to be a case of Presidential fever inducing a moment of sensitivity to the grassroots, after a career of GOP Establishment courtiership
