Paranoia in the White House


The Republicans' contempt against the politically active Democrats in Hollywood can be traced way back when Pres. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by a Shakespearean actor.


Threats, imagined or exaggerated, on Pres. George Bush's life have been flashed and over-bloated on TV news lately. There was a low tech grenade in Tbilisi, Georgia thrown near him when he delivered a speech on stage. Luckily, it did not explode. It must be one of those rusting weapons, remnants of Russia's "iron grip" in Eastern Europe. The White house was evacuated the other day due to a small plane piloted by a student flyer, who got lost within the "no fly" zone. Perceived assassination attempts from the Muslim extremist camps monopolize the President's security protocol.

It is, indeed, tough to be a Republican president. I think this paranoia of dying from an assassin's bullet while in the Oval Office started when Pres. Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, was assassinated by a theater actor. Such fear was compounded when Pres. James Garfield, another Republican, was shot. When Pres. William McKinley was assassinated by a deranged anarchist, the same paranoia ballooned among the psyche of the Republicans. A failed assassination attempt against Pres. Ronald Reagan, which had a bizarre connection to Hollywood's Jodie Foster, seemed like the modern recurrence of the fear plaguing the right.

I believe this is one of the reasons why the right wing conservatives do not trust the left, which, according to the Republican vocabulary, are composed of communists, radicals, liberals, homosexuals, feminists, anarchists, antisocials, anti-establishments, anti-capitalists, trade unionists, social activists, atheists, progressive thinkers, artists and writers, and yes, Sen. Joseph McCarthy's arch-enemies, the Hollywood and Broadway intellectuals. Muslims whose propaganda is based on social justice not exclusively on religion, like Malcolm X's, fall in the same category. Even the non-violent, racial equality-based civil rights movement pioneered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was considered by some conservatives as left extremist like that of the Black Panther's. The Republicans' definition of what is left is vague, unfounded, and complicated. Following their rhetoric, it seems everyone but fundamentalist Christians and US servicemen and women is leftist.

When you look at it, the backbones of the Republican politics are guns and the holy bibles. The right wing conservatives are more trusting towards preachers and soldiers. It is safe to sum up that every Republican leadership in the white house since the early 1900's, the height of America's colonialist "manifest destiny" to civilize and christianize the non-Western world, as the administration of war and Jesus, and of course, their imagined, exaggerated fear and hysteria. Assassination is definitely a scare among Republican leaders. Such paranoia is their curse. Don't wonder if the security protecting Pres. Bush is serious, overzealous, and unpenetratable. It's also not surprising why security during the Republican presidential terms in the White House since Pres. Dwight Eisenhower in the 1950's, the pronounced spread of communism and beginning of the Cold War, has always relegated economy to the backseat. They have the American History to remind them of their vulnerabilities and their paranoia lurking in their subconscious.

I disagree with your premise that the Republican Party was founded on right-wing ideology or that progressive thinking is the domain of the Democrats. Granted, it might not seem like it now, but it was a Republican president that ended slavery. It was Republicans that passed the first civil rights act in 1866, and successfully added the 13th, the 14th, and the 15th Amendment to the Constitution. A Republican president created the first national parks and really started the environmental conservationist movement in the US. The Civil Right Acts of 1957, 1960, 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed by Congress with immense Republican support against Democratic resistance.

But anyway, besides that little quibble, I thought it was an interesting post!

hey, i did not say republican party started as a conservative. I do believe though that Republicans started to use guns and cross as the foundation of their party ideology in 1900's.
