Neocons Are Back—But Not in the GOP

I have long suspected the neoconservatives would move leftward as the GOP’s electoral fortunes declined.

The Democratic Party’s Long History of Racism

The American Thinker Long  owning the default position, the pure, tolerant Democrats easily assume a  morally superior attitude while labeling  those who differ from their  point of view as morally deficient, quickly dousing  dissenters with the  2008-2012 election buzz word–racist.
