Robert Welch Was NOT George Lincoln Rockwell!*

“I am not now nor have I ever been a member of the Communist Party John Birch Society, “concealed” or otherwise. Moreover, I have never been a supporter of that party society.” – Guffaw

Funny, growing up in a white-bread liberal college town as I did, I heard mostly that Robert Welch (of the Welch Candy Company(Sugar Babies) and the John Birch Society) was nothing more than an ignorant, fascistic, fear-monger, as were the members of his society.

Then I listened to the words in the video above…

It appears as though he has been characterized erroneously.

He was actually a libertarian (of some variety)!

(I’m NOT saying I believe in everything the man stood for, and I am NOT a Bircher, but it appears character assassination of non-liberal individuals has been going on for generations!)

I’m guessing none of the members of the current administration (or their parents) were present in the audience to hear Mr. Welch speak.  Unless, of course, they were outside agitators community organizers bent on disrupting the proceedings…

(not unlike the guy on the right)

*If you youngsters suffer from a failed public education, here’s the Wikilinks – Robert Welch, George Lincoln Rockwell

  1. Perceptions, and the media… Actually HEARING the speeches ‘can’ point out a significant difference…🙂

    • Reminds me of the liberal outcry about the racism of the Tea Party – which automatically disqualifies them from participating in any discourse. Of course, no one seems to have any hard evidence of any pervasive racism, just conjecture…
      And continuing to repeat the lie.

  2. It’s a sad commentary on the state of America that so many historical figures are maligned – or adored – due to the collectivists’ twisting of the words that those figures actually used. You have to go back to the original source.
