This is not about the 1960’s book Silent Spring, written by the environmentalist Rachael Carson.Uh, gee, why would I make that mistake? After all, The Silent Scream is among the most famous of right-wing-lunatic cudgels and I expect nothing less than the standard blood-curdling gore and fulmination about genocide. On to it!
It is about the 1960’s people who read the book and who fought against the pesticides released in the environment about which Carson wrote. Now known as the Baby Boomers, they went on to fight against civil rights injustice and fight against the Viet Nam war.Okay, still not seeing any fetus gross-outs...
It is about a group of people who read Hegel and Marx.
They were misguided but willing, in their youthful idealism, to stand up and protest the perceived wrongs they saw occurring in their country and their culture. They became the teachers and Professors in our Universities. They trained and taught the next generation of Americans, who are the Obama voters today. Looking back now it is apparent that the push towards Socialism which drove this 60’s revolution, was actually the sword of Damocles which Barak Obama has used skillfully to destroy this country. It is from these people, the Boomers, whose head the sword hangs over, that a silent scream can be heard.Okay, just stop. DOG-WHISTLE REVOKED.
Not only is the Boomer generation suffering because of their Marxist ideologies but they are suffering at the hands of their offspring. The socialist push, so pervasive in the Obama administration, has fallen on complacent if not compliant ears. These are the Americans, in their twenties and thirties that have been nursed on the tit of Karl Marx. They have very little knowledge of historyJUST SHUT UP.
