Wing Nut direct mail king sez: Obama a "socialist"

Here's the May 20, 2009 email update from the godfather of wing nutty, direct mail stupidity, Richard Viguerie:

91% of Conservatives Believe Obama is a Socialist, Marxist, Communist or Fascist

MANASSAS, VA -- An online poll by the

Web site found that 91 percent of 1,848 self-identified conservatives believe President Obama is a socialist (46 percent), Marxist (24 percent), communist (11 percent), or fascist (10 percent).

Only 7 percent considered him to be a liberal (5 percent), or a progressive (2 percent).

Richard Viguerie, Chairman of, commented on the results:

"While this is not a scientific poll of conservatives, it is a meaningful indicator that most conservatives (the GOP base) see Obama as a dangerous radical.

"Rather than Americans coming together as a result of the election, it appears that America is becoming much more polarized.

"Because so many conservatives see President Obama as a radical leftist, Republican politicians will be under pressure to step up their criticism of President Obama and the Democrats who are closely cooperating with him.

"It will also make compromise more difficult for GOP officials. Any Republican who wants to be a national leader will feel obligated to view Obama as the vast majority of the GOP base sees him."

The poll, conducted from May 12 through May 19, asked, "How Would You Describe President Obama's Political Philosophy?" The complete results* from conservatives were:

* Socialist 46% (842)
* Marxist 24% (437)
* Communist 11% (200)
* Fascist 10% (193)
* Liberal 5% (87)
* Progressive 2% (41)
* Moderate 1% (24)
* Other 0% (9)
* Populist 0% (8)
* Conservative 0% (7)
* Libertarian 0% (0)

* Percentages may not add to 100% because of rounding)

NOTE TO EDITORS: Richard A. Viguerie pioneered political direct mail and has been called "one of the creators of the modern conservative movement" (The Nation magazine), one of the "conservatives of the century" (The Washington Times ), and one of 2008's "top 25 influencers" among Republicans (NewsMax magazine). He is the author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause.

I really don't know how much further to the "right" idiots like Viguerie want to go? Attlia the Hun? The "divine right of kings?" Gather-hunter tribes?

And why do Republicans need step up their criticism of President Obama and the Democrats who are closely cooperating with him[?] Fuck there are plenty of Democrats who've already stabbed President Oreo, and the rest of the country, in the back. Moreover Obama's shown on a couple of occasions that in reality he is nothing more than your typical, run-of-the-mill, centrist, milquetoast Democrat. So what's to complaint, wing nuts?
