"We need the National Guard to clean out all our cities and round them up...They have no problem slitting your throat and taking your money or selling drugs to your kids or raping your daughters, and they are evil people."

"I don't care if Mexicans pile up against that fence ... just run a couple of taco trucks up and down the line..."

Neal Boortz
Anti-immigrant talk radio host

“The question we Americans need to address, before it is answered for us, is: Does this First World nation wish to become a Third World country? Because that is our destiny if we do not build a sea wall against the waves of immigration rolling over our shores…Who speaks for the Euro-Americans, who founded the USA?…Is it not time to take back America?”

Patrick Buchanan

"America was indebted to immigration for her settlement and prosperity. That part of America which had encouraged them most had advanced most rapidly in population, agriculture and the arts."

James Madison


Stomaching Ayn Rand

A film adaptation of the 1957 novel Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand, is now showing in couple of theaters across the nation. The release of the film has coincided with a resurgence of popularity for Rand on the American Right.

TEA Party members have been heard to boost that they have now read one other book than the Constitution. They have also mentioned that Atlas Shrugged is quickly becoming the favored boat achor for the TEA Party fishing crowd.

The trailer for Atlas Shrugged had its world premier at this year’s CPAC conference, the Tea Party group FreedomWorks has rolled out a massive campaign to promote the film, and the story’s opening line — “Who is John Galt?” — has appeared on numerous signs at Tea Party rallies.


Paul Rand, Ron Rand, Ru Paul, Whatever Meet Ayn Ryan

Some of the right’s leading political and media lights have heaped praise upon Ayn Rand. The author of the Republicans’ new budget plan to gut Medicare and Medicaid, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), has said Rand is the reason he entered politics, and requires his staff to read her work. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) have both declared themselves devotees of her writing. Conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has his law clerks watch the film adaptation of Rand’s book The Fountainhead. She’s also received accolades from right-wing pundits Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, John Stossel, and Andrew Napolitano.

During her lifetime, Rand advocated “the virtue of selfishness,” declared altruism to be “evil,” opposed Medicare and all forms of government support for the middle-class and the poor, and condemned Christianity for advocating love and compassion for the less fortunate.



Individual Rights

"The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities." Ayn Rand
