Town Square

An Apology from a Former Berkeley Leftist...Now Conservative

Original post made by amy, Del Prado, on May 11, 2009

The following reprint from the American Thinker website, is an interesting read. Why other liberals don't understand what is happening is still hard for me to understand. However, this letter is somewhat encouraging to those of us who are very concerned with where Obama is taking this country.

Obviously this is fake. I had a very similar assignment in my journalism class at Columbia.

One could very easily write a similar letter about the conservatives in the country.

Both parties are now in the hands of their respective lunatic fringes. And the 50-60% of us in the middle are getting squeezed.

Mike:
Your faculty and alums at good ol' Columbia would be proud of your leftist, anti-American, pro-socialist views.

Yours truly,
A pro-American, pro-capitalist, proud American

It doesn't matter if its fake, read it as an essay/op-ed as I think it was intended.

I'm not all that impressed....personally, I think anybody that votes down party lines is pretty short sighted. Additionally, I think politics has become so far removed from the modern man (and woman) that most feel, at best we can hope for the "status quo" in a politician. Someone much wiser than myself once said, the problem with politics is those we would want to lead us and our country are smart enough to know not to.

Tell me which part isn't true.

(However, I do know that the actress who advocated the gang rape of Palin was SANDRA Bernhardt, not SARAH.)

Obama didn't turn darker, he has always been darker that most caucasions.

Patty Hearst joined up with the SLA because she was angry and spoiled and needed to mouth off about a cause. She enjoyed every second of her crime spree. She committed the crime and did the time!

Robin is a prostitute living in SF and she is the person that led the fight to pass Proposition Q in Berkeley. When Q lost big time, she go ticked off and split for SF and recently has been musing about having cancer. Robin Few is a big time loser and if you Google her name, it pops up all over. Yup, bad lady!

Web Link

Note: She sometimes spells her name Robin. On this site, her name is spelled Robyn.

Nobody said that the twin towers were taken out by the US. Everybody that I know reports that a 2 planes took out the towers! Get you facts right.

Also, if you want filthy streets, drive in the Mission District, SF or up Geary Blvd. It's NASTY NASTY NASTY!!!

I've heard Sarah Palin speak on TV and that was more than enough of that rat for me.

Now she is screaming at her daughter's ex because he wants to visit the baby! He is after all the BABY DADDY! Right? The latest is that her daughter is skipping around town preaching abstinence as if she knows anything about it. Sheeeeeeeeeeesh...

As for Geraldine Ferraro, she was rooting for H. Clinton who is now the Secretary of State.
HC did pretty good, turned nice and got a cool job! GO GIRL!!!

It is sad that some of you actually believe this post is true in some sense. But I do believe you do! Arbeit macht frei! This too was believable in 1940.
