the_gneech just posted a link to this wonderful article in his LJ, and I felt compelled to do the same.

This is beyond a shadow of a doubt the most exhaustively researched and documented listing of the mind-numbing hypocrisy and ignorance of fact and logic that has permeated the Conservative American Right for at least the last decade. It is an astounding read, and deserves to be posted everywhere.

Remember when Goldwater was an extremist? What world did that happen in?

Gods, no kidding! Or Bob Dole being called a right-winger!

It's safe to say that the "party of Reagan" has really been the "party of ragin'" for decades.

...and the "Party of Lincoln" (as they like to boast) hasn't been ideologically aligned to him since about the turn of the twentieth century.

I can only imagine the size of this guy's article archive. Clearly, this has been an article that has been brewing for a long time!

Gay people are seen on the same level as animals and child molesters? Yikes!

To some very vocal members of the GOP, yes, indeed.

Holy crap. Just because the demon for sodomy also happens to be the demon for pedophilia doesn't mean those two things were actually ever related in terms of mental illness or sexual preference.

I cannot see modern people believing that. I've never run into that in my traveling and studies.

See, you are applying thought and logic to the argument; both those concepts are abandoned the second the right wing argues anything.

The people who do believe such things--and sadly, there are a lot of them--are not "modern" by any stretch of the imagination. They are backward-looking people who pine for their own version of the good old days. You know, back when darkies, faggots and women knew their rightful place.

Well I can't fault the sheer size of the thing. I mean its huge!

Consider, also, that there is a lot he left out. I am sure his article--and his references--could have gone on for quite a lot more.

Theoretically we could help it... grow.

By which I mean add new links and stories to postings of the article and repost the URL when new stories hit.

Folks have already been posting additional links in the comment section of this article. I would not be surprised in the least if the original poster generated an even more thorough version of it somewhere down the line.
