Tea Party and the John Birch Society

-A A +A
By The Staff

In his recent letter to the editor, “Have a Spot of Tea,” Dick Foster appears to be somewhat supportive of the Tea Party movement. Be that as it may, but he said that we shouldn’t belittle the Tea Party because they are being courted by the “John Birch Society, an organization of people with good income, education and social status.” Good social status? Well, not with me! I remember the John Birch Society very well and all reasonable people should be alarmed that this organization of paleo-conservative paranoids is showing its ugly head again.

Yes, I remember the John Birch Society when I was growing up in the South in the late 1950s and early ’60s. The JBS was everywhere. Members claimed that President Dwight Eisenhower was a communist agent and that fluoridating our public drinking water was a communist conspiracy (and from a recent interview with their president, they appear to not have completely given up on this fluoridation plot).
