    Do American Conservatives and Libertarians adore dictatorships, totalitarianism?

    Is there enough evidence out there to make a legitimate case that American Conservatives and Libertarians hate liberalism so much, they have turned their collective backs on the liberal values that were undoubtedly the foundation, of the United States of America?

    let us start by taking a look at a recent thread here @ USMB:
    Here it is impossible to deny the right wing lunatic @ USMB who goes by the anon-nitwit-name The Professor argues the USA should be more like North Korean, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, China, Venezuela, Cuba...

    ---

    We have people like The Professor admiring Americans like Neal Boortz who made his bones with angry America (conservative/libertarian wingnuts) writing speeches for Lester Maddox. Poor Neal, the self-described Libertarian with the education from the then-unaccredited John Marshall Law School

    We had the great Conservative hero, the late Senator Jesse Helms with his unbridled support of the regimes: Zimbabwe Rhodesia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Chile, South Africa (the apartheid gov)...

    ...to be continued...

    All Barry needs is one of those funny little totalitarian mustaches for full effect.

    You are projecting, Dante.

    Do you think the Leftist totalitarianism push we are experiencing this is anything new?

    Is Obama the first smooth talking populist that worked the common man into a lather to believe the bad rich people were controlling all of 'our wealth'?

    This disaster has been repeated MANY times throughout history, and always ends badly.

    Let's see.

    Conservatives supported the Contras, which engaged in large numbers of human rights violations, including outright murder through what became known as death squads.

    Then there was the conservative support to the racist Apartheid regime of South Africa.

    And who can forget the Heritage Foundation's and Grover Norquist's support for Joseph Savimbi and UNITA in Angola?
