    The Cubans assassinated Kennedy. That's a **** load more than microscopic.

    1. No, Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated Kennedy.

    2. I said "influence in academia;" the Kennedy assassination is completely irrelevant to this discussion. Do try to keep up.

    You said, Cuban influence". Oswald was working for the Cubans.

    Cuban influence IN ACADEMIA. Like, today. Not 50 years ago. As in, the topic of the thread. Again, please do try to keep up.

    Naturally it's 'leftist ' in academia who are being approached. Who else would support communist dictatorships? They supported them for decades and not much has changed at all.

    Next, you'll be independently saying that leftists hate America, my independent friend. That'll really get other independents to see that independent streak you're known for. You're such a great independent thinker, Grant. Always independently stating your positions which are independent from any other ideology. Yep, you're an independent guy, alright. I hope to one day be an independent like you.

    By the early 1970s, the openly defiant and revolutionary New Left had spent its political capital and was a dying movement.

By way of its political ascendancy within the Democratic Party, the New Left, in a political sense, effectively killed off the classical centrist liberals who had vigorously opposed Communist totalitarianism. After accomplishing this parricide, the New Left occupied the corpse of authentic liberalism (i.e., the Democratic Party) and appropriated the name, "liberalism."..."<

    Nice try apdst but we're trying to have a serious discussion here. It's no time for jokes. An economically/militarily powerless nation trying to get at the information that 15 year olds from 4chan can hack into is no laughing matter.

    Very good synopsis on the development of the radical left.

    You don't cover the latest developments in their political movement, being three primary additions:

    1] Alliance between the SDS camp and the Radical, Open Genocidal Advocating, Extreme Greens

    2] Alliance between the SDS camp and the Radical Muslims

    3] Transition from being an underground subversive organization, to becoming the official state powers, and the abuse of those powers (IRS Lerner, DOJ Holder) to shut down all opposition and free speech which might hinder their acquisition of political power. In essence, the emergence of the American Progressive-Fascist State.
