(National Sentinel) Lapdog Hypocrites: You may not have lived through the turbulent 1960s, but there is plenty of material on YouTube, Netflix, and other platforms if you care to research the period.
They were shape-shifting times for certain. The Vietnam War was in full-swing and increasingly unpopular.
The old societal norms were being destroyed by Left-wing academics and rising cultural icons revolted against “The Establishment,” which was primarily a reference to ‘government’ in general, but the federal government in particular, and all of its various law enforcement and intelligence agencies which had been unleashed against people Martin Luther King, Jr., and others.
My, how times have changed, writes Breitbart‘s John Nolte. Yesterday’s Left-wing, establishment-hating hippies are, today, quite content with the same establishment that once persecuted their cultural heroes.
And President Donald Trump is the cause of their sudden change of heart, he notes in a column:
Here is what I never thought I would see…
The children of the ’60s — you know, the hippies — and their ideological offspring in academia, politics, and, most especially, the media, are now not only okay with a sitting president’s weaponizing the intelligence community against a rival presidential campaign; they are all rolling over like whipped dogs to believe everything the intelligence community tells them, most especially when it is coming from the CIA — the CIA! — and the FBI.
Basically, Trump has driven the hippies and their offspring so crazy they are not only A-okay with the CIA’s spying on American citizens, totally cool with FBI spies infiltrating a rival campaign, and feeling warm all over about wiretaps, unmasking, and lying to federal judges, they do not want any of this investigated.
The other day, Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame was on CNN fuming over the fact that there will now be an investigation of the Obama administration, the Department of Justice, the CIA, and the FBI, after it was discovered they are all guilty of spying on the political rival of a sitting president.
Carl freakin’ Bernstein does not want the watchmen watched.
Bernstein, you may recall, was one half of The Washington Post reporting team who, with partner Bob Woodward, exposed the Watergate scandal, which led to the indictment of some 40 White House officials and President Nixon’s resignation.
Oh but…wait. Nixon and his staffers were Republicans. Got it.
Nolte notes further:
After the civil rights movement, the best thing to come out of the ’60s was a healthy skepticism of our national intelligence apparatus and a vigilance against its abuses. The era of the unquestioning ’50s was finally over. But now, because of Trump, all of that has vanished. The hippies have become the squares, the round haircuts, the unquestioning white bread, middle class, Ward Cleaver 50s dads who blindly salute their G-Men.
The more things change, the more they stay the same when it comes to the Left.
