“Three of the biggest [terrorist] incidents before 9/11 were actually incidents of US culpability. In 1976, a Cuban airliner was brought down … the death toll was seventy-three … by Luis Posada Carriles, a longtime CIA operative, who was later indicted for terrorism. And the US refused to extradite him. They’re harboring him… The Indian Airlines bombing in 1985, an Indian jetliner was blown up, about 300 killed. The bombers were later found to have received training at a US camp in Alabama… The Iranian jetliner shot down by a US ship, the Vincennes, also with roughly 300 killed, in 1988, the captain of the ship who did that, he got a medal from Bush Senior for exceptionally meritorious service.”

The Republicans have emerged as a unique phenomenon in American history – a fervently doctrinal party, zealous, ruthless, antidemocratic …
In ceasing to be a genuine opposition party the Democrats have smoothed the road to power of a party more than eager to use it to promote empire abroad and corporate power at home.

“Clinton, and most other contemporary Democrats, did not and will not do what is best for us or the world we live in. We don’t pay their bills – the top 10 percent do, and it is their will that will always be done…
So is there a difference between Democrats and Republicans? Sure. The Democrats say one thing (“Save the planet!”) and then do another—quietly holding hands behind the scenes with the bastards who make this world a dirtier, meaner place. The Republicans just come right out and give the bastards a corner office in the West Wing. That’s the difference.”

“In no small part because they coveted the same corporate money, Democrats practically walked away from the politics of struggle, leaving millions of working people with no one to fight for them. We see the consequences all around us in what a friend of mine calls “a suffocating consensus.” Even as poverty spreads, inequality grows, and our quality of life diminishes, Democrats have become the doves of class warfare.”

“I warn you all.
You were not elected to create a Democratic majority.
You were elected to restore this country.
You were not elected to serve the corporations and the trusts who the government has enabled for the last eight years.
You were elected to serve the people.
And if you fail to pass or support this legislation, the full wrath of the progressive and the moderate movements in this country will come down on your heads.
Explain yourselves not to me, but to them.
They elected you, and in the blink of an eye, they will replace you.
If you will behave as if you are Republicans – as if you are the prostitutes of our system – you will be judged as such.
And you will lose not merely our respect.
You will lose your jobs!
Every poll, every analysis, every vote, every region of this country supports health care reform, and the essential great leveling agent of a government-funded alternative to the unchecked duopoly of profiteering private insurance corporations.”

“”Fearful people are more dependent, more easily manipulated and controlled, more susceptible to deceptively simple, strong, tough measures and hard-line postures.”"
“”We see how the powerful countries, all of them so-called democracies, manipulate multilateral bodies to the great disadvantage and suffering of the poorer developing nations.”

The most worthless of mankind are not afraid to condemn in others the same disorders which they allow in themselves; and can readily discover some nice difference of age, character, or station, to justify the partial distinction.”
Was he talking about Dems vs Repubs?

“The United States has only one party – the property party. It’s the party of big corporations, the party of money. It has two right wings; one is Democrat and the other is Republican.”

“A well-functioning democracy has a culture of free speech, not simply legal protection of free speech. It encourages independence of mind. It imparts a willingness to challenge prevailing opinion through both words and deeds. Equally important, it encourages a certain set of attitudes in listeners, one that gives a respectful hearing to those who do not embrace the conventional wisdom. In a culture of free speech, the attitude of listeners is no less important than that of speakers.”

“I have the greatest admiration for your propaganda. Propaganda in the West is carried out by experts who have had the best training in the world — in the field of advertizing — and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency … Yours are subtle and persuasive; ours are crude and obvious … I think that the fundamental difference between our worlds, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. You tend to believe yours … and we tend to disbelieve ours.”
