Articulate and perceptive . . . he angered those who could not compete with his grasp of current issues and frustrated those who could not refute his arguments . . . a conservative who could state his case while respecting the right of others to disagree, and yet earn the admiration of his opponents by admitting his own admiration for their sincerity. His sarcasm was limited to those who refused to concede that there are legitimate differences and his wisdom was in understanding that sincerely held belief was different from, and superior to, political rhetoric.
When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.
oh yeah, one of america's heros big fan and defender of U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy; supporter of segregation in the South, refering to whites as "the advanced race;" former member of the John Birch Society - hey at least he finally came out in favor of the legalization of drugs, although he apparently decided it would be a good idea to ban the use of tobacco in America (he died of emphysema, brought on by his inability to control his own smoking habit.)
Yeah, we need a few more like him...
I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?
“The central question that emerges…is whether the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail, politically and culturally, in areas where it does not predominate numerically? The sobering answer is Yes—the White community is so entitled because, for the time being, it is the advanced race.” —William F. Buckley, National Review, August 24, 1957
