Liberal Betrayal of America and the Tea Party Firestorm
Former Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich sees the Democratic Party of the 21st century as a different animal
from its former self: “It’s a hard-Left, AFSCME (public employee unions), trial-lawyer, teachers union party,
and they play for keeps, unlike business.” Novelist Allen Drury perceives that liberalism itself has been
transformed into a “rigid, ruthless, intolerant, and unyielding orthodoxy.” Author and Yale professor of
computer science David Gelernter finds that the resulting confrontation between the rebels and American
society “is turning into a full fledged war.” And so it has.
America is once again “engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and
so dedicated can long endure.” Fortunately this new Civil War is not marked (as yet) by such bloody battlefields
as Gettysburg, where Abraham Lincoln spoke those words on November 19, 1863. In the Civil War of 1861-
1865 the Confederates of the South fought simply for independence from the Union. There was no intent to
transform the culture or structure of the North, as the new Civil War intends to do for the entire nation.
In its earlier stages what was to become a Civil War was commonly called a culture war, and had no centrally
organized command or purpose. Each contingent attacked on its own front in its own way. But the separate
insurgencies all shared the inherent goal of civil war, which is to weaken or dissolve existing social values and
institutions and transform society.
Gradually the liberal assault against America has heavily infiltrated or captured the public schools, most of the
print and broadcast media, the arts, the universities, the environmental movement, organized labor, leading
elements of science, and much of the judiciary and the federal bureaucracy. The insurrection has destroyed or
corrupted supporting ideals and institutions affecting religion, sexual relations, the family, the rule of law, how
words are used, and patriotic loyalty. Underpinning the Civil War, and adding strength to it, are persistent
efforts in core scientific disciplines to denigrate and even mock the value of human life.
The rebels promote massive growth of government power at the expense of individual liberty. Knowing that its
true intentions lack support, the rebellion is intolerant of opposing speech, writing, or broadcasting, which it
seeks aggressively to suppress.
The culminating assault of the Civil War was carried out in the election of 2008, its true intent concealed behind
a glittering facade of “Hope” and “Change.” When the political branches of the federal government were
decisively captured in that election the insurgents achieved a centrally controlled national base for their
revolution. In a sophisticated “bait and switch” maneuver the agents of this “full fledged war” against America
moved rapidly from idealistic campaign rhetoric to the consolidation of raw power. Destruction of the America
we have known—economically, politically, and morally—is well under way. It is the horrifying specter of
America destroyed that ignites the firestorm response of the Tea Parties, and the millions more of true
Americans that have been awakened to strike back in defense of liberty and country.
The engine that powers this assault against America was assembled and set in motion at American colleges and
universities during the 1964-1965 academic year. A well-planned uprising led by a few thousand students was
carried out on hundreds of campuses across the country. It was a rebellion calculated to challenge the legitimacy
of authority on each campus attacked, and by extension the authority of society as a whole. The target selected
for the first strike was the Berkeley campus of the University of California.
Liberalism today is anti-American revolutionaries on a tear, tearing down the structure of our democratic
society and free enterprise economy. The true purpose of its leaders is their drive for power; the power to
command and control the daily lives of the American people. The essence of the destruction being wrought, an
understanding of how this has come about, a feeling for the horror of the intended results, and what might be
done about it is the subject of this book.

In the summer of 1964 Clark Kerr, President of the multi-campus University of California system, received an
alert warning him that radical student groups across the country were planning a concerted, nation wide
