I'm still reading, but this article is too good not to post. Don't miss it.

Robin of Berkeley writing at American Thinker: "Silence of the Lambs"

I don't know who this person is. For whatever personal reasons, he/she elects not to give a last name. Perhaps this person still resides in Berkeley and is worried about getting beaten with a tire iron by the "tolerant" Left. Just guessing.

Robin of Berkeley discusses Progressivism: "Up until early last year, I was a progressive. There are no liberals in Berkeley. We might arrive here a liberal, but after steeping in leftism, we either leave or buy into the program. Progressivism is not just a political persuasion. It is a cult, with deep roots in violent movements: Communism, the Black Panthers, the Symbionese Liberation Army, the Weatherman. These groups had an artillery of weapons. Their enemy, within: capitalism, white imperialism. . . .

"How many radicals must preach to Obama, write books for him, advise him; how many brother to brother handshakes and hugs and bows must we witness before we get to ask: Is Obama one of us or one of them?". . . . Call me names: Hysterical. Paranoid. A Fear monger. Racist. It doesn't really matter. . . .Truth is not here one day and gone the next. It will survive when we are long gone. We speak, not for ourselves, but to strengthen and carry each other. We speak for the children, born or still a dream."

It's an excellent read. Don't miss it.
