There has been gossip about neoliberal Thomas L. Friedman’s recent claim that a “centrist” third party is in the works. Michael Collins Piper reports:
The new party will shun both the “liberal left” and the “conservative right” and stand for “centrist, bipartisan” policies. Or, should that be tri-partisan? Friedman’s column is part of an increasingly open campaign by monopolistic media controllers to conjure up a “centrist” rebellion in America, even to the point of launching a third party to vanquish both liberal Barack Obama—presuming he is re-nominated by the Democratic Party—and a “conservative” Republican challenger. AFP warned this “centrist” movement would be a classic “controlled opposition,” dominated by the very big money forces—here and abroad —in the Rothschild banking dynasty’s sphere of influence that have controlled both major parties through their stranglehold over major media outlets shaping public opinion. Friedman’s column was titled bluntly: “Third party rising.” He wrote: “There is a revolution brewing in the country, and it is not just on the right wing but in the radical center.” Friedman described “two serious groups, one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast,” working to build third party movements that the columnist said would “challenge our stagnating two-party duopoly that has been presiding over our nation’s steady decline.”
It’s nearly comical that Friedman is championing a party to combat a decline that people like him helped to bring about. Regardless, if Friedman has anything to do with this party, expect it to be:
It will be Clintonianism with a new face. How revolutionary! And don’t forget to add in anti-occidental, as Clinton was the first president openly to celebrate that the soon U.S. will no longer be a Western country in terms of demographics. Thomas Friedman is a mediocre writer and second-rate thinker at best. Upset by the failures of the Obama Regime and hoping to cash in on tea party angst, he’s now promoting a legerdemain of passing off failed ideas as something new and revolutionary. In that respect, he’s already in line behind Dick Armey and Grover Norquist.
