Eating Their Young. Part Deux - or - What The GOP Should Learn From The Left

Januarly 15, 2006 (No matter what the postdate says.)

Alger Hiss. The Rosenbergs. Tookie Williams. Sacco and Vanzetti.

Innocent victims of that crazy Right Wing Conspiracy. Accused spies. Darlings of the Left. Anarchist/murderers. Convicted. Harrassed. Executed. Innocent.

Once again we see that the Left doesn't care. Never cared. About the truth. We've learned that Hiss was guilty. The Rosenbergs were guilty. Williams was guilty. And, now, thanks to the muckraking leftist, Upton Sinclair, we learn that Sacco and Vanzetti were guilty.

Here's how it went...
" During his research for "Boston," Sinclair met with Fred Moore, the men's attorney, in a Denver motel room. Moore "sent me into a panic," Sinclair wrote.
"Alone in a hotel room with Fred, I begged him to tell me the full truth," Sinclair wrote... He then told me that the men were guilty, and he told me in every detail how he had framed a set of alibis for them...
"...My wife is absolutely certain that if I tell what I believe, I will be called a traitor to the movement and may not live to finish the book," Sinclair wrote Robert Minor, a confidant at the Socialist Daily Worker in New York, in 1927."
It's another example of the left eating their own. With the Left, the competition of ideas can be deadly. I've never subscribed to that old saw, "Better Dead than Red," for one thing I was a little busy watching Sky King and Pinky Lee, but, apparently, the Left was taking care of that problem all by themselves. Look at the attempt to discredit David Horowitz, an original Berkeley Free Speech New Leftist who had "Second Thoughts".

Once his path was clear, his books were no longer regularly reviewed by the New York Times or other MSM outlets. His struggle to emerge from the smears is the struggle Upton Sinclair refused to attempt. Sinclair had to know that while his cause was just, his movement was corrupt. Surely there are lessons we can all learn from this. Aren't we all watching the House GOP struggle with its identity? Many of us will be watching carefully.
