In the same post Dave Weigel quoted a Texas businessman in the 1930s
“The capitalist system can be destroyed more effectively by having men of means defend it then by importing a million Reds from Moscow to attack it,”
It is true that reds from Moscow Russia are not much of a threat to the capitalists system. But red staters from places like Moscow Idaho practically destroyed it last week.
And yes, of course I found the Republican against the ruling class contrarianism in Slate. What did you expect ? The Daily Right To Worker ?
