It’s 1968 All Over Again
National Review, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/12/2017 1:19:12 PM

The United States and the world appear to be reliving the language, politics, and global instability of 1968. Almost a half-century ago, in 1968, the United States seemed to be falling apart. The Vietnam War, a bitter and close presidential election, antiwar protests, racial riots, political assassinations, terrorism, and a recession looming on the horizon left the country divided between a loud radical minority and a silent conservative majority. The United States avoided a civil war. But America suffered a collective psychological depression, civil unrest, defeat in Vietnam, and assorted disasters for the next decade — until the election of

Yes Victor! Just what I have been thinking too-this is 1968 revisited. The liberal left loved that year, but it was hell. The culture went crazy and way liberal in one year. In one year the country turned against the Government and the war in Vietnam, and therefore the solders, most who had no choice. In one year the music went from love tunes to hard rock and protest. In one year movies went from sex happening off stage to right in your face. In one year you went from story´s about love and getting married to women just being something to sleep with. And don´t get me started on those stupid min-skirts. I spent 5 years never bending over to pick anything up or worrying about the wind! And free love-bull-never works-always destroys the family and women. Somethings righted itself by the 80´s but much, much was lost.

Yes, it is 1968 all over again. A key similarity is that the msm forced/ is forcing its progressive meme on the citizens to try to get us to submit and give up our liberties. A key difference however, is that both political parties were somewhat functional in 1968 and their policies hadn´t had time to fully fail yet whereas today, both parties and their policies have failed and there is nothing left to bring the country forward.

For years I´ve been saying that between 1968 and 1972 the democrat party was taken over by people (marxists) who hate this country and the freedoms she stands for. To destroy it, they had to destroy the family and our culture. They have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. First legalizing the killing of babies, then promoting homosexuality as normal, Even ten years ago, who would have believed that men would be given the right to use women´s restrooms and dressing rooms? That sex is ´fluid´? That one day one could say they were a woman and the next say they were a man. That someone could be jailed for using the wrong pronoun to a ´gender fluid´ IT but not for deliberating giving someone AIDS?

I´m not so sure about that. Yes, we´re still involved in Afghanistan (in smaller numbers than the 500,000+ troops we had in Vietnam in 1968, a much more divisive involvement), but no religious or political figures of the stature of MLK Jr or Bobby Kennedy have been assassinated, major cities haven´t been put on curfew or aren´t burning because of riots (only portions of Progressive-led cities by a relatively small number of Antifa malcontents - things are relatively calm and quiet in Republican-controlled cities or states), the Nat´l Guard isn´t out (yet) patrolling or shooting protesting university students.

I think the political, cultural and social atmosphere is better than it was in 1968 (I was 12 then.)

The media only want us to believe it´s that bad now. We´re not as innocent as we were - we only had three major TV networks lying to us - and we lacked the ability to instantaneously find out for ourselves if they, politicians and the military were misleading us. With New Media such as the Internet, Twitter, Instagram we are better informed and prepared to confront the lies.

BOTH political parties are unraveling (the GOP much slower) but DemoRATS are faring much worse. The GOP controls 33 states to the DemoRATS 5 or 6.

The end result for DemoRATS will be uglier. They know they´re bleeding their traditional special interest constituencies (as well as losing political power) and that´s why they´re angry and causing mayhem and confusion. They believe the solution is to continue turning Hard Left Socialist and they´re being enabled and assisted by the media and Hollywood.

President Trump has just exposed it all.

Didn´t the Democrats and Communists have something to do with that then as well? Today the entire leftist cabal is involved. The media not involved can be counted on one hand.

BTW, speaking of Communists, Obama is going back on the campaign trail.

FTA: The smears “racist,” “fascist,” “white privilege,” and “Nazi” — like “Commie” of the 1950s — are so overused as to become meaningless. There is now less free speech on campus than during the McCarthy era of the early 1950s.

What is the opposite of diversity? University.

As a retired Marine I have a had a tough month after watching the Ken Burns Vietnam series which glorified the Anti war movement and the damage it and JFK/LBJ did to this country. 1968 is indeed a year that help destroy this country.

Yes 1968 was tumultuous. From the USS Pueblo seizure to the all the events in the interim prior to the election of Nixon. But 1969 was fairly momentous as well. The Manson Family. The Moon Landing. The Joe Namath Jets and the Miracle Mets. Woodstock and Altamont. Cappaquiddick. The first draft lottery. The Days of Rage. Hurricane Camille.

In my humble opinion, and no disrespect to Dr. Hanson, the events of the last couple of years pale in contrast but seem more consequential because the media megaphone is so much louder and pervasive than at the end of the 60s.

ICE Director Hits Back at CA Dems Over
Possible Raids: ´We Are Enforcing Laws
Congress Enacted´

Acting ICE Director Tom Homan hit back Thursday at California´s Democratic senators, who criticized his agency over reports of planned immigration sweeps in the sanctuary state. Local law enforcement officials have reportedly stated they will not assist ICE in raids aimed at apprehending 1,500 illegal immigrants in northern California. California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris wrote a letter to the agency, asking for a briefing on the raids. They argued the action would be "an abhorrent abuse of power" and a diversion of resources to "score political points" and "punish" the state for its policies toward illegal immigrants. Homan

Trump: Government shutdown looming
because of Senate Democrats

President Trump argued Friday that a partial shutdown of the federal government is on the horizon because Senate Democrats refuse to support a continuing resolution, and said voters should send more Republicans to Congress in November as a result. "Government Funding Bill past last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders. Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!" Trump tweeted Friday morning. (Tweet) The House passed a spending bill late Thursday that would keep the government open through Feb.

The Democrats’ 2018 chances will be damaged by the government shutdown if voters blame the Democrats’ pro-amnesty agenda, a Washington Post report admitted Thursday evening. The good news for President Donald Trump and the bad news for amnesty-advocates was buried in the last paragraph of the article, which is based on a poll conducted for Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer: If Democrats can make this looming shutdown about Trump and his ability to govern, they will be in a strong position to win the fight nationally and help the “Big Five [Democratic Senators]” hold their own. If Republicans can make

CFPB director a new hero on the right

The acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), former congressman Mick Mulvaney, has submitted a budget request that may be a first in the history of government. The CFPB is an independent agency that recieves its funding from the Federal Reserve. The director must submit a budget request to the Fed every quarter. The most recent budget request came from former director Richard Cordray, an Obama appointee. Cordray asked the Fed for $217 million. But Mulvaney shocked official Washington by making a budget request for zero dollars. That´s $0.00 in taxpayer funds.

As President Trump racks up undeniable wins related to jobs (unemployment is falling, including historic lows among blacks and Hispanics), economics (Trump’s tax bill resulting in over a hundred companies giving large cash bonuses to their employees and Apple repatriating some $250 billion back to the U.S.), and foreign policy (ISIS being systematically eradicated from Syria and Iraq, North Korea and South Korea announcing they will attend the upcoming Olympics under one flag), there are those in the media and elsewhere who are reluctant to give him credit. On the contrary, not only do they downplay these achievements, they insist

If a picture paints a thousand words, then the White House’s choice of image for its homepage—featuring President and Mrs. Trump in the Vatican Sistine Chapel—tells an entire story of the President’s commitment to religious liberty. The photograph, taken during the first couple’s visit to the Vatican last May, bears the caption: “No American Should Have to Choose Between Faith and the Law.” The backdrop for the image is Michelangelo’s massive fresco painting of the Last Judgment.On Tuesday, President Trump declared January 16, 2018, as “Religious Freedom Day,” while specifically referencing notable examples of violations of this fundamental freedom even

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month.

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP?
