Alternet has the article The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan to Hijack American Democracy. This is an interesting analysis of what frequently goes under the label of Libertarian.
Kristin Miller: You referred to a movement as a fifth column. Is it still a stealth movement, do you feel, or is it more in the open these days?
Nancy MacLean: … So I don’t think “fifth column” is necessarily the best term, but it identifies that element of their thought, which is really so far on the radical right that they have such a hostile attitude toward our democracy; it’s almost as if they’re outsiders bent on what one of them called a hostile takeover.
Nancy MacLean also explains why I am against paying so much attention to Trump’s Tweets.
Nancy MacLean: Well, the first thing I’d say is stop paying such attention to Trump’s tweets. They’re a total distraction. I think we should instead be carefully watching the actions of groups like Freedom Partners, Chamber of Commerce, the Koch’s big donor operation. The Club for Growth is another part of this, and Americans for Prosperity on the ground.
