This book explains the history and thinking super concisely. But broadly, GOP needed a voter base that wouldn't question power of the state being handed over to private industry -- thus they won over the devoutly religious who wouldn't question anything beyond simple morality. Then beginning with Carter, and going full steam with Reagan, to escape 70's stagflation (rising inflation causing a stagnant economy) America rejected the economic theories of the preceding 40 years under Keynes and embraced slow but steady deregulation of all markets and public services, or at least everything they could, under the guise of "small government" and an ideal of the individual. Around the time of Clinton's presidency, Democrats could do nothing but sustain the cycle as Reagan had butchered much of what was previously under government ownership -- to turn the tide back would be far too costly and lose the election, as it would be a total U-turn of the country.

Tip for formating links: take out of the amazon title from the part in parenthesis, and only have the link in that part. Like this:

I heartily recommend The Black Count, the story of Thomas-Alexandre Dumas: the first person of color in the French military to become brigadier general, the first to become divisional general, and the first to become general-in-chief of a French army. His son Alexandre Dumas (author of The Three Musketeers) went on to become one of France's most widely read authors of all time.

For my Illustration class, we had to either do a caricature or a statement portrait of a public figure. I chose to do a statement portrait of Donald Trump and Joe McCarthy, who is famous for McCarthyism/Second Red Scare. In short, he used the labeling of people as "communists" and similar labels to not only remove their trustworthiness and patriotism, but to justify the unlawful search of themselves and homes, as well as government surveillance. I believe we are entering another Red Scare, but instead a Brown Scare, where the people portrayed as the "enemy" are brown and black people, most notably Latinx, Arabic, and Black individuals. McCarthy is not shaded in to symbolize how he doesn't feel real - a person in the past - while Trump is very present and very real, and thus shaded. The style is intended to mimic 40's-50's political cartoons. The backgrounds are how information was spread about the two people - behind McCarthy are blurred newspaper articles about him, while behind Trump are blurred tweets from his Twitter account. Their signatures are above their portraits in case people do not know who they are. Excellent reading material to go with this art is Griffin Fariello's Red Scare: Memories of the American Inquisition , which contains the accounts of people who lived during McCarthyism - both governmental targets and government workers.

Please share this art with the hashtag #brownscare, it is meant to be circulated and become a political meme.

Amusing note, it turns out Joe McCarthy looks a lot like Richard Nixon.

Not quite as fancy but it works

I used to use one of these to change the channel in the chow hall from Fox News

This is a scary read (or listen, if you’re partial to a bit of audible) - Hitler's American Model: The United States and the Making of Nazi Race Law

Although I'm sure /u/Catcac won't believe it ever happened but once around the same time as the event I describe above. I was waiting for a bus to go to work reading a book. The neighborhood was predominately minorities, so at this stop was about five black people and me. So, I'm sitting at a bus stop with a shaved head, wearing a long coat and realize I'm reading a book titled White People. No one said anything or even noticed as far as I could tell but I put it away.

And apparently some copies have neo-nazi publishers' marks. Disgusting. You can report it here, I did: - Giant "Send Feedback" link at the bottom of the page.

Before he was a senator, Al Franken wrote a book called, "Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right".

It destroys Ann Coulter, and it's one of the most hilarious books I've ever read.

Fuck that guy so hard.

The book The Red and The Blue: The 1990s and the Birth of Political Tribalism gets into all that ish.

E. Ugh amazon links.

I think you should know better than to assume the Internet is a window into reality rather than a frame into the individual creators mind. People acting wildly get clicks. People being outrageous get attention. Like a car on fire in the street, we are fixated by potential threats. Your own behavior is unfortunately the result of this mediated environment, and it's more unfortunate still that somewhere it is being recorded.

May I suggest a few books?

Give those three a try and let me know when you're finished.

Scholarship on what soldiers (both North and South) actually said and wrote about why they went to war, and what they thought they were defending, points to them all understanding that they were fighting to protect and expand slavery (Southerners) or, once it became clear the war would not be over quickly, fighting to destroy slavery forever Northerners). So.

>Read a history book on the civil war.

I just finished reading The Battlecry For Freedom, actually, by James McPherson. Great book, and you should check it out. Sounds like you're the one who's never actually read a book about the civil war.

Regarding my idiocy, I'm not going to debate my intelligence with a stranger on the internet as I'm sure I've been called worse things by better people but below is a selection of quotes you that rebut your historical revisionism regarding the causes of the South's secession.

"No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law denying or impairing the right of property in negro slaves shall be passed."

~ Article IV of the Confederate Constitution

"The Confederate States may acquire new territory... In all such territory the institution of negro slavery, as it now exists in the Confederate States, shall be recognized and protected be Congress and by the Territorial government..."

~ Article IV Confederate Consitution

"We but imitate the policy of our fathers in dissolving a union with non-slaveholding confederates, and seeking a confederation with slaveholding States."

~ South Carolina's Dissolution of Union Statement.

"African slavery, as it exists in the United States, is a moral, a social, and a political blessing."

~ Jefferson Davis, CSA President

"Our new Government is founded... upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and moral condition. This, our new Government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth."

~ Alexander Stephens, CSA Vice President

And that's just a few.

The Civil War was a struggle over States' Rights inasmuch States had the right to enslave people and treat human beings like property. This whole "It wasn't about slavery," revisionism drives me up the wall. Gee well heck yeah the Federal Government SHOULD impugn upon your sovereignty if your soverignty is predicated upon something as immoral as slavery.

The Confederacy made clear in their very own founding documents that they wanted to enshrine human slavery as part of their society FOREVER. Anyone who wants to posit that the CSA seceded for other reasons, such as Federal tyranny, can get right TFOH with their apologetics for White Supremicism and enslavement of other human beings.

The Boys on the Tracks were two teenagers who were murdered in Arkansas because they stumbled upon a drug smuggling ring being operated while the Clintons were governors. This includes links to the CIA and their dark funding operations from the same drug smuggling.

The Democrats have long ties with the mafia. JFK and Biden elected with mob help, and JFK and his brother were killed specifically because they went after the mob. Add to this the list of suspicious deaths that have directly aided the Clintons.

It's believed very reasonably that the Clintons benefitted from, were likely privy to, and possibly even directly involved with several murders. This info has been around since at least the late 90s.

The whole Monica Lewinsky thing wasn't about the president getting a BJer, it was about trying to nail Bill Clinton with anything that would stick to make him pay in some part for his crimes.

Obama got elected because while many on the right hated the fact he's black, there was much less evidence that he's a bad person and much more indication that he's a stellar human being. His character was his shield on his way to the White House.

But Clinton? She is seen as being a loathsome, murderous (expletive).

That's a far cry from "a few blemishes."

For all the horrible things Trump has done (and he is a horrible person who should never ever have been president), he's never been accused of being a murderer.

The Clintons are the reason why he got elected.
