A Good Overview of the JBS

By Dave

I’ve been working on an overview article on the John Birch Society and their peculiar worldview and their role in undermining legitimate conservative activism. In the process I found a rather good and surprisngly balanced overview article on the left-wing site publiceye.org. The site is pretty skewed overall, but their article on the JBS is informative. I think the bulk of it may have originated somewhere else since parts of it seem familiar.

Here’s a telling quote:

“In a sense, the Birch society pioneered the encoding of implicit cultural forms of ethnocentric White racism and Christian nationalist antisemitism rather than relying on the White supremacist biological determinism and open loathing of Jews that had typified the old right prior to WWII. Throughout its existence, however, the Society has promoted open homophobia and sexism.”

This article also made me aware – though not surprised – that Phyllis Schlafly of the reprehensible Eagle Forum was associated with the JBS. Which in turn makes me wonder how heavily mormon influenced the group may be.

    It’s actually very complex in this active life to listen news on Television, therefore I just use the web for that purpose, and take the most up-to-date information.|
