Scary Look Inside the Mind of a Leftist: See Why Their Ideas Lead to Deaths



Wow! It is interesting to peek into the clearly delusional world of the typical liberal. Thomas Sowell’s Conflict of Visions is a terrific book for explaining why the “situations matter” philosophy argued by Sommers has led to enormous levels of violence and oppression as leaders seek to alter “situations” so that they produce the supposed benefits for the people. In reality, of course, this “situations matter” philosophy was responsible for the worst mass murderers of the previous century – Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. If you’ve ever owned a business or managed employees, then you will quickly understand why successful people pay great attention to both personality and character when they make their hiring decisions.

Censored Again: Dr. Drew Banned by 1kthomas and Liberal Fascists at Ephblog

EphBlog has no official connection to Williams College. 
Here is a great exchange that was apparently censored by one of the folks over at http://www.ephblog.com/  I imagine that the Dr. Drew fans paying attention to that site will be curious to see what information is currently being censored.  It starts with one of the editors, 1kenthomas, adding his "Potential Hate Speech" warning to the speech I gave this week at the Capistrano Republican Women Federated on April 20, 2011.  I thought my former students at Williams College and others would be interested to see it.  This is where the fun begins.

Otherwise, you’re engaged in a witch hunt and I’m not going to condescend to treat that witch hunt as anything but what it is.

WRT John C. Drew,

I’m not attacking anyone. Various individuals have expressed concerns about your postings, and I’m merely applying the best descriptive label I can to let people sort, at this point.

By ‘potential,’ I mean that your postings may potentially be considered hate speech, as I understand the articulation of that (admittedly questionable) term.

There are, of course, twenty-some other odd editors here, any of whom who can choose (wiki-style) to contradict me.

Otherwise, John, I don’t intent to deny you a forum at this point, but in my book, you look like a loon and quack like a loon, and are being treated as such :)

Please… LOL

I can’t believe you have time for this sort of controlling, plainly aberrant behavior.

I wish someone from FOX News was watching this exchange right now. Your implied threat of your mysterious status as a high ranking government official is particularly bizarre.

It is a good example of why giving liberals just a little, itty bit of power rapidly turns them into scary, even dangerous people. You are behaving like a liberal fascist. I can’t believe, for example, that you are making up two new categories in the field of “potential” hate speech simply because you are too lazy to defend your outright censorship of my comments.

You should read A Conflict of Visions by Thomas Sowell. FYI: I’m also an appointed member of the Orange County Republican Central Committee. I’m sure that an extremely important diplomat – like you – certainly understands the meaning of “appointed” when it comes to credibility in the real world.

My wife and I have been willing to give our lives – and to risk our business – to get the word out about my face-to-face observations of young Barack Obama’s extremist Marxist ideology.

Dear John C. Drew,

I have given you a wide leeway in face of objections of others, and in fact in the face of PO-ing a great deal of others on this forum.

Any restrictions you face are not content-based but based on the quality and nature of the material you post, and the behaviors you engage in.

In particular, you posted links to your “work” which suggests that Barack Obama’s mother is … something dark, shall we say… because one of her names is, in your rather uninformed opinion, typically “male.”

If that’s not “demeaning others” (for non-substantive reasons), I don’t know what is.

I did not censor this piece of material, but I did mark it in a way that our visitors might identify clearly, as, among other things, outside our norm.

That seems fair to me, though since we are a collectively edited site, other editors are free to express objections or take contrary actions.

You then began to engage in a childish game of tit-for-tat. Well, we’re not going to play such games, if for no other reason than I am not amused by them.

I hope this provides some explanation, insomuch as I am not seeking your understanding or consent. This is likely to be the final explanation you receive.

I’m sorry, but your last comment has caused me to think that you are seriously mentally ill. If you persist in this behavior, I’m going to put you in the same classification as “jeffz” – someone it is not fair for me to argue with…

To any normal person, naming your daughter “Stanley” is a sign of dysfunction in a household. As one of the few political scientists in the nation who has also taught courses on child abuse and neglect, I think you are dangerously out of touch with reality if you sincerely believe my comments on this aberrant, deviant behavior by Obama’s grandparents is, in any way, hate speech.

===WARNING HARSH WORDS FROM DR. DREW==FYI: There is no such thing as “potential” hate speech.===DR. DREW’S HARSH WORDS ARE NOW OVER===

Your suggestion that centuries ago some girls were named “Stanley” strikes me as plainly silly and beside the point. I wish you had been in one of my child abuse and neglect classes while I taught through the political science department at Williams in the mid-1980s. You would better understand the implications of Dunham’s cruel decision to name their daughter after her father without regard for the damage this would do to her life and her mental health.

As far as I can tell, all the comments that you have blocked from me are focused on making fun of your silly, snippy behavior last night. In these posts, I’m ripping up your pretentious, self-importance and the sheer nonsense that your cloak in politically correct jargon. What a joke! You don’t even post here under your own name. I feel sorry for the people around you who put up with you snippy behavior and what we used to call – at Opera Pacific – ‘queening out.”

I’m really amazed at kthomas’s behavior. I think when, if ever, my comments are released, objective NYT reporters will be amazed at this example of pure liberal childishness.

What is particularly funny to me right now is kthomas’s aristrocratic language – reminding me that I’m not his equal on this forum :-) – or the really funny, “I’m not amused” comments. LOL This is a perfect example of everything people find frightening about liberals.

I’m grateful that I have my own website and my own access to the public through American Thinker and David Horowitz’s News Real Blog Site. This is a bizarre episode in my life. I give a well-received speech to one of the top Republican organizations in the nation and enjoy tremendous applause. Here, however, the exact same talk is given the bizarre label of “potential” hate speech. This is a fitting reminder of how sick, mentally ill and dangerous liberals have become to freedom of speech. In the current political climate, liberals are increasingly dangerous to the cause of liberty.

===WARNING MORE HARSH WORDS FROM DR. DREW==FYI: There is no such thing as “potential” hate speech.===DR. DREW’S HARSH WORDS ARE NOW OVER===

Sadly, in a divided nation, the real "hate speech" is the censorship and hostility directed at young, white, male and female conservative students.  As this censored exchange demonstrates, there is little sense of humor, or reality, among the liberals like Kenneth Thomas who think they know better than the rest of us what is the right course for our nation.  Standing up to these bullies is becoming an important part of protecting our freedom and liberty.

Video: Why Obama's Past is More Important Than His Future

I want to thank O.C. congressional candidate, Mike Munzing, for taking out time to record my recent speech at the San Juan Capistrano Republican Women Federated meeting on April 20, 2011. 



I think this is a pretty good start at explaining the path that lead Obama and I to become Marxist socialists in 1980, the minor role I played in persuading him that there was not going to be any Communist revolution in the U.S., the straight line of ideological consistency passing from Frank Marshall Davis, me, Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright and Alice Palmer, and the dangers posed to our nation by an Obama second term, a second term that would give him the opportunity to stack the Supreme Court with people who would bend the Constitution to facilitate his Marxist socialist perspective. 

One of the sweet ironies surrounding my speech is that, on this same day, President Barack Obama spoke at a "town hall" at Facebook headquarters, with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in Palo Alto, California. Palo Alto is within minutes of where he and I first met in Portola Valley in the fall of 1980.

By the way, please check out the nice applause line for Tricia - for her bravery - in helping me get this message out at about 11:00 minutes into the video.

Listening to My Old Hart High Graduation Speech: Little Did I Know I Would Be Hammered By Affirmative Action

I've got a little bit of audio showing what I was like as a public speaker back in 1975.  I think it is sad that the vibrant, awkward, sensitive young man revealed in the speech would go on to face a huge number of racial and ethnic barriers to success simply because he was a young Armenian-American and not the member of a more politically powerful minority group.




This should bring back some warm memories from over 35 years ago.  Especially for members of the graduating class of Hart High and their relatives in attendance.

Wow! Loveline's Dr. Drew Pinsky is Now on HLN: Thoughts from the Real Dr. Drew

As I switch channels between FOX News and MSNBC I'm finding my eyes fixing on my own name on television: Dr. Drew.  The reason is not because my story about young Obama's Marxist ideology has hit the mainstream media, it is because Dr. Drew Pinsky has a new show on HLN. 

Accordingly, I have an odd story to tell about how Dr. Drew Pinsky started referring to himself as Dr. Drew and not Dr. Pinsky back when he was a co-host of the seedy Loveline radio talk show here in Southern California.  As you may know, Loveline went national in 1995.  The television version was launched on MTV in 1996 where it was hosted by Dr. Pinsky and Adam Carolla. 

Above all, I think it is time to claim my status not only as the "real" Dr. Drew, but as the "first" Dr. Drew.

The whole "Dr. Drew" concept started when I was running for office in my home town of Santa Clarita between 1990 and 1992.  I bought billboard space to promote the Dr. Drew name.  I knew it was considered tacky to call myself Dr. Drew, but no one else in the race could make that claim, I liked the alliteration, and as a poor white guy with no money - it was all I had to appeal to the voter's best interests. 

My memory is that these billboards seemed to have a tangible impact on the culture around me even as they did me next to no good at all in securing a spot as an elected official representing the interests of my home town. 

In the worst consequence, some of the kids at Canyon HS - where my brother taught biology - started scratching the name DREW into the surfaces of their school lockers and using the name DREW as a bizarre form of graffitti.  In an era where gangs were starting to mark-up my hometown, it was ironic to see the DREW name competing with street gangs. 

I can report with certainty that Dr. Drew Pinsky was near enough to me in terms of geography and politics to perhaps benefit from the modest "Dr. Drew" visibility campaign taking place in Santa Clarita, CA.  Pinsky, after all, was born in near by Pasadena, California.

He is a year younger than me.  He majored in biology at Amherst College and graduated in 1980.  He came back to CA to earned his M.D. at USC's School of Medicine in 1984.  He later became chief resident at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena before moving into private practice.

Loveline began in 1983 as a Sunday night dating and relationships segment on Los Angeles radio station KROQ.  As Loveline developed the show began referring to him informally as "Dr. Drew".  I don't have the timing exactly right, but my memory is that I didn't start hearing anything about a "Dr. Drew" on the radio until after my modest media buys in the Santa Clarita area.  The timing for me being the original Dr. Drew seems about right since it was only in February 1992 that Loveline expanded from Sunday nights to five nights a week.

Around the same time, I noticed a second Dr. Drew imitator, in the form of the rapper, Dr. Dre.  As you may know, Dr. Dre made solo debut, The Chronic, in 1992 and and released it under Death Row Records.  He became one of the best-selling American performing artists of 1993. My story is that I never noticed anyone combining Dr. with the words Dre or Drew until after my little media campaign hit the Southern California area. 

I'm not 100% sure, but I've always thought that Dr. Pinsky stumbled on the seeming popularity of the Dr. Drew advertising campaign and realized it was a useful way to build a brand identity without having to associate his own "Pinsky" name with a sleazy, sex-talk radio show.  Now, however, I think people are more likely to mistake me for him than the other way around.  Nevertheless, I think I have a case for saying that I was the first to promote the Dr. Drew name in the media markets he and I shared in the early 1990s.

Dr. Drew Reacts to New Barack Obama Ad: Hey Marxist! Where Are the Jobs?



It was kind of creepy to watch the young white guy praising President Obama. I don't think this young guy understands what it is like to apply for a number of teaching jobs and to keep coming in second to the minority candidate because of affirmative action. It's painful to get ready for those interviews, know you are the strongest candidate, and then end up living in poverty, without health insurance simply because you are a poor white guy and not a member of a wealthy, privileged, politically protected minority group.

I knew the young Obama. I can verify that he was an ideological extremist in 1980.  My story has appeared in Michael Savage's Trickle Up Poverty, Paul Kengor's Dupes, Stanley Kurtz's Radical-In-Chief and Jack Cashill's Deconstructing Obama.

I don't think any older white guy should "trust and respect" Obama until Obama comes clean about his long-standing commitment to extremist revolutionary philosophy. Obama should, at the very least, explain his ties to the extremist Midwest Academy.

My wife has been looking for a new job since March 2009. It is difficult to even write about the financial pain we have suffered as a consequence of the low unemployment associated with the Obama stimulus package. I pray that the American people wake up to this disaster and take the actions they need to take to return our country to fairness and prosperity.

Barack Obama and the Legacy of Frank Marshall Davis: A Note From Dr. Drew to Davis's Son, Mark Davis

John Drew with David Horowitz
at a special event for the Freedom
Center.

I think it might be valuable to place on the public record my most recent comments to Mark Davis, the son of Obama's famous mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Pictured here, me and one of my favorite people, David Horowitz.

Dear Mark:

I think you are missing the forest for the trees right now. Your argument seems to be missing the big picture. Stalin died in 1953. You father was interested in the Communist party beginning in 1931 and was officially a member of the Communist party long before Stalin's death.

If your father's famous friend, Paul Robeson, knew about - and helped cover up - Stalin's atrocities, then I don't think it is unreasonable to assume Frank Marshall Davis was also totally aware of Stalin's murderous ways - at least by 1953.

As I understand it. Never once did your father complain about Stalin's behavior as a mass murderer. In fact, your father praised Stalin's views on Christianity and praised the Red Army.

I've never heard that your father apologized for supporting Hilter during the Hitler-Stalin pact. Your father sounds like a very scary, very dangerous person to me.

I think Tidwell made a big mistake by not using all the information available in your father's FBI file. I think Tidwell made a mistake when he underestimated the significance of your father's long standing interest in the Communist Party USA, a party which lives in infamy because of the way it ended up supporting both Hitler and Stalin - two of the worse mass murderers of the last century.

Unfortunately, your father's devotion to Marxism and the Communist Party USA, as revealed by Tidwell in a letter from your father to a friend, helps us understand why your father was so closely tied to some of the most extremist ideologues of the last century.

Your father's ideology - and distaste for Christianity - meant that he did not have the moral compass needed to stand up and fight child pornography or the  evil of either the Nazi or Communist parties. It is frightening for me to realize that the president of the United States would choose as his mentor a fellow who was on the wrong side of both our fight against Hitler in WWII and the USSR during The Cold War.

I think it is a real stretch for you to suggest that your father was a normal, wholesome, average American who should be honored at the same level as Martin Luther King. In my view, your father's decision to publish his fantasies about child rape sort of disqualify him from MLK status. I'm also thinking your father is unworthy of MLK status because of his decisions to side with some of our most cruel enemies during some of the great conflicts of the past.

Sincerely, John
