Really?

Reasonable conservative David Frum asks neocon David Horowitz, and by extension, all wingnuts, the following pertinent questions:

David, do you really want to abolish the Federal Reserve? Do you think the United States should have allowed Merrill Lynch, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and other banks to follow Lehman into bankruptcy in October 2008? Do you think that any cuts to Medicare amount to a death panel for grandma? Do you think we can sustain an adequate military – never mind finance future tax reductions – if we allow healthcare to continue rising from its current 16% of GDP to a projected 20% of GDP a decade from now if nothing changes?

I can’t believe you do. And if you don’t believe these things, is it not dangerous to have talk-and Fox whipping a couple of million conservatives into frenzy over things that are not true?

Anyone who answers “Yes” to any of the questions in the first paragraph is either gullible or stupid — or both.

Anyone who answers “No” to those questions but spreads or cheers the spreading of those lies is irresponsible and dangerous in a shouting “Fire” in a crowded theater way, but on a much grander scale and with national and possibly global consequences.
