Ignorant Wingnut Cliche'

"Just 50 years ago, in the 1950s, America was a great place, it was safe. It was decent. Children got good educations in the public schools. Even blue-collar fathers brought home middle-class incomes, so moms could stay home with the kids. Television shows reflected sound, traditional values". - author William Lind

There is so much stupid in that quote, it literally hurts. Gee, wonder why every wingnut on television and radio always talks about how "wonderful" the 1950's were. I'm sure it's a coincidence that they are all white men.

Oh, those good ol' days when no one had to share a lunch counter with dark people. Moms could stay home and drink and take pills. Television shows depicted white people going about their lovely lives with their issues about hurting a friends feelings and black people were just dancing and smiling. White people could wear white robes and hoods without embarrassment. Those nasty, slutty bad girls were forced to get back-alley abortions. Whites streets were safe for white people (unless they were gay).

Your fantasy 50's are over wingnut. Unless you plan on recreated your fantasy scenario over for the 2050's. I know that you and your people will try.

Bring back the 1950s and in ten years you'll just get the 1960s.

Say, that doesn't sound like a bad idea!
