In all the current media frenzy over alleged ties between people around Donald Trump and Russia, Sean Spicer reminded reporters that Hillary Clinton had far deeper ties to Russia and the media turned a blind eye to them. Click the link for a reminder of those warm, pre-New Cold War days when Hillary offered her Russian friends Reset Buttons and one-fifth of our uranium. You know, hearing all this paranoia over whether someone in Washington actually talked to the Russian ambassador got me thinking: Isn’t it the liberals who always accuse Republicans of “wanting to turn back the clock to the 1950s”? Yet, who is actually bringing back the 1950s? The smears against White House officials as Russian sympathizers are perfect illustrations of the left’s cartoon shorthand version of McCarthyism. We also have liberal government leaders in Europe telling women to dress less provocatively, as if it would be their own fault if they got raped (at least, if they got raped by a Muslim migrant), just as young ladies were told in the pre-feminist ‘50s. In America, liberals are arguing that the First Amendment has gone too far, and we need government censors enforcing what even stand-up comedians are allowed to say, in case it might offend someone (just like in the pre-Lenny Bruce ‘50s.) We even have some SJWs on college campuses demanding “safe spaces” for black people only. Welcome back, 1950’s-style school segregation! Will these black-only safe spaces also have black-only water fountains? At least when conservatives talk about “making America great again,” we mean bringing back the good stuff from the past, like border security, industrial jobs, patriotism and individual freedom. Liberals want to bring back McCarthyism, sexism, censorship and segregation. I don’t think they’ve got the hang of this “nostalgia” thing.
