Useful Idiots in Modern America

Today, in modern America, there are useful idiots on the right who blindly support anyone who attacks Obama because Obama is a so-called “liberal”.

Equally, there are useful idiots on the left who blindly support Obama and try to defend his bailouts of the financial giants, his escalation of the Afghanistan war, his defense of Bush administration torturers and war criminals, and other indefensible acts because they think he is the great liberal savior.

Stalin’s useful idiots – like Robeson – were blind to the reality of what the communist tyrants were actually doing. They were too caught up in ideas about what was happening, instead of looking at the effect of the actual policies being carried out.

Those on both the left and the right who fall for the rhetoric of the Democratic and Republican party leaders are useful idiots who are failing to look at the effect that those parties’ policies are actually having.

Indeed, the Republican and Democratic parties have been promoting virtuall identical economic policies, which is why economists from the left and the right have slammed both Bush/Paulson and Obama/Geithner’s actions.

Failing to see that the financial elite are controlling the agenda of both parties is a form of useful idiocy.
