The Farmer has a post about Iran/Contra felon and Bush Administration member Elliot Abrams and his association with Rev. Moon, titled, “managed democracy”… …and Elliot Abrams dances in the Moon-light. Excerpt:
Sun Myung Moon, 1987:
“There are three guiding principles for the world to choose among: democracy, communism and Godism?It is clear that democracy as the United States knows and practices it cannot be the model for the world.”
Well, that doesn’t sound very “patriotic” or freedom loving or democracy spreading does it? Hey?, where did all the Jesus shouting treason police wingnuts go? Where are all the hoots and monkey noises from the Cult of the ‘W’ Stofstrupp about the death of western civilization and Christianity when this diseased theocratic fascist cult-toad lets one rip? Huh? Where’s all the foot stamping outrage! at the fawning exploits of Elliot Abrams. Oh yeah, I forgot. When it comes to guzzling the Moon-shine the right-wing faithful are all lined up at the back porch door; tin cups in hand.
It’s a good thing the “True Parent” hadn’t suggested that he was a model for some character from Love Story, or some similar horrible deception like that. For surely, had that been the case, the ferocious media sniff-dogs would have been at his heels like hyenas onto the scent of a wounded wildebeest.
I love this post. And why is it that the associations between the Bushes and Moon, and the Right and Moon are not talked about more widely? Is it one of those things that is just so weird that people think it couldn’t be true? (Like the idea that the leaders of a country would make up lies to convince their people to go to war against another country?)
Remember the STF rule: when Republicans accuse others it’s a good bet THEY are doing what they are accusing others of. And now they accuse others of being “against God” and of undermining Christianity, and things like that… while in cahoots with Moon the whole time. From the Farmer’s post:
Grover Norquist and the College Republicans circa 1980’s Robert Parry writes:
In the 1980s, Norquist was a leader of the College Republicans when they were getting subsidies from the secretive fortune of Sun Myung Moon, a South Korean theocrat whose organization has a long track record of illicit money-laundering. Moon was pumping tens of millions of dollars into American conservative organizations and into the right-wing Washington Times.
Some Republicans raised red flags, citing Moon’s history of brainwashing his disciples and his contempt for American democracy and individuality. In 1983, the GOP’s moderate Ripon Society charged that the New Right had entered “an alliance of expediency” with Moon’s church.
Ripon’s chairman, Rep. Jim Leach of Iowa, released a study which alleged that the College Republican National Committee “solicited and received” money from Moon’s Unification Church in 1981. The study also accused Reed Irvine’s Accuracy in Media of benefiting from low-cost or volunteer workers supplied by Moon.
Leach said the Unification Church has “infiltrated the New Right and the party it wants to control, the Republican Party, and infiltrated the media as well.” Leach’s news conference was disrupted when then-college GOP leader Grover Norquist accused Leach of lying.
For its part, the Washington Times dismissed Leach’s charges as “flummeries” and mocked the Ripon Society as a “discredited and insignificant left-wing offshoot of the Republican Party.” [For details on Moon’s ties to the GOP and the Bush family, see Robert Parry’s Secrecy & Privilege: Rise of the Bush Dynasty from Watergate to Iraq.]
Over the next two decades, with billions of dollars from the likes of Rev. Moon and media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, the conservative media infrastructure grew exponentially, becoming possibly the most potent force in U.S. politics. – [see following link for source]
