Blog Fight!

Xoff points out that a new blogger, the Brew City Brawler, has no time for Dad29. (I am very sorry for that.)

Actually, BCB calls Dad "the nuttiest blogger in the Badger State." The point of departure is Dad's suggestion that the left's recent victories are generally violations of the right to life. (Actually, a really smart guy agrees with Dad and just wrote a book about it.) BCB mentions a lot of stuff from the 40's, 50's and 60's, including winning WWII, starting the Cold War and the civil rights movement.

But would the left support any of these things today? After all, Hitler had nothing to do with Pearl Harbor. The last big name Dem to support the cold war was Scoop Jackson (whose presidential bids fared about as well as Joe Lieberman's) and the left abandoned the moral imperative behind the civil rights movement (which, as I recall, had something to do with treating others based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin)back when Bill and Hillary actually still liked each other.

"Brawler" does not allow comments from me on his blog.

So I'll post a snippet: Brawler claims that HSTruman was a "warrior" in the Cold war.

That's a partial-truth. HST (and George Marshall, by the way) wanted to help "Uncle Joe" Stalin; it was only the Republican congressional landslide of 1946 that stopped them--and only the Republicans in Congress who actually "fought" the Cold War.

Ron Reagan won it--after the temporizing and limpwristed Carter, Kennedy, Eisenhower (!!) and HST Administrations had managed to lose (inter alia) Mainland China, Eastern Europe, several countries south of Russia, and Cuba, plus or minus a few Asian places such as North Vietnam.
