1% tryna play that Godwin's Law card...,

wsj |  Regarding your editorial "Censors on Campus" (Jan. 18): Writing from the epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its "one percent," namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the "rich."

From the Occupy movement to the demonization of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, I perceive a rising tide of hatred of the successful one percent. 

There is outraged public reaction to the Google buses carrying technology workers from the city to the peninsula high-tech companies which employ them. We have outrage over the rising real-estate prices which these "techno geeks" can pay. We have, for example, libelous and cruel attacks in the Chronicle on our number-one celebrity, the author Danielle Steel, alleging that she is a "snob" despite the millions she has spent on our city's homeless and mentally ill over the past decades.

This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking. Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendent "progressive" radicalism unthinkable now?

It's a pity this poofy old aristo couldn't experience his comparison firsthand - circa 1943 - so that he might realize what a ridixculously clueless poodle he is. But no, it wouldn't, would it?

This is the same argument the New York Times maintained which is why they purposely did not cover the Occupy Protest in their media...

By all means - please tell me what you need me to clarify about Dr Reed's agenda?


1) He is pushing LEFTISM - without any evidence of push for the "DEVELOPMENT of Black people"


2) Judging from what he has already said - He would rather see "Democrats elected over Republicans" more than he cares to voice ANY ASPECT of the Black community that has its foundation OUTSIDE OF POLITICS


3) He says that there can be no legitimate "Leftist Leader" that is NOT ANTI-CAPITALIST. If we asked Pro Reed - exactly how "ObamaCare" receives its funding for subsidies - do YOU think that he can admit how valuable the Federal Reserve is to his "Anti-Capitalistic" agenda?


CNu - I have given you 3 SUBSTANTIVE arguments that I have observed about Dr Reed. (I read a few of his articles a few years ago). Yet for some reason you prefer to be dismissive of me because I am critical of someone that you appear to have YOUR ideology vested in.


The ONLY "URL" that I need to give to you are the references to the various 'Mission Accomplished Cities' - that after being centers of successful "Political Opportunism" runs - Prof Reed - (like Peniel Joseph) is able to DOCUMENT accurately (to both of their credit) but their own IDEOLOGICAL BIGOTRY renders them useless in rendering STRATEGIC PLANNING going forward - at least not for any Black people seriously interested in REGULATING the access of the POLITICAL OPPORTUNISTS (regardless of the ideology) to the BLACK COMMUNITY CONSCIOUSNESS NUCLEUS.
