Roberts is a fruitcake. An extreme right wing white supremacist one.
Yup, he's a protectionist, and thus has criticized the current neo-liberal paradigm. He also believes that the more you cut taxes the higher the tax revenues.
He is a big critic of Bush's abuses of civil liberties, but I don't think he has the same understanding of freedom that you or I have.
In his somewhat idiosyncratic understanding the current assault on America's freedom is the fourth and weakest of a series, effective because America's strength and freedom had been so badly sapped by the earlier three.
The first and greatest one was the Civil War when Lincoln, America's Pol Pot launched a war against the truest upholders of America's freedoms - the Southern elites.
The second was the New Deal which turned us into a a collection of government-dependent interest groups and welfare beggars.
The third was the sixties Civil Rights revolution and the opening up of America to dark skinned immigrants at the behest of evil multicultural intellectuals who denied the power of race and tribe. It turned America into a feudal system with whites suffering the dominion of black overlords and where the (white) rich suffer oppression greater than the black slaves ever did - democracy is evil, dontha' know.
On another front in the war of evil against good, Chile is seeing the destruction of Pinochet's legacy of freedom
Explain to me why this fascist nut is worth listening to?
Clearly, he is also a contrarian. And contrarians are useful, because they increase the variety of perspectives.
The quotation of Robert's I gave did two things: it quoted from Bush's speech, and then gave an interpretation of that quotation. The quote is simply a matter of fact, so there is no reason for me not to quote Roberts for that purpose. As for the interpretation, lots of other people make the same interpretation. So again, there is no reason for me not to use this quotation of Roberts'.
In saying that I should not be citing Roberts, your line of thinking seems to be of an ad hominem and guilt-by-association type. I was not citing Roberts as an "authority". I was merely quoting those passages to spare me the trouble of saying the same things in my own words.
