Quotes

The John Birch Society makes itself sound patriotic and benign. Read "Wrapped in the Flag: A Personal History of the Radical Right" by Claire Conner, whose parents were John Birch insiders
"I have devoted most of my life to understanding the principles that enable people to improve their lives." He began. "Unfortunately, the fundamental concepts of dignity, respect, equality before the law and personal freedom are under attack by the nation's own government. That's why, if we want to restore a free society and create greater well-being and opportunity for all Americans, we have no choice but to fight for those principles. I have been doing so for more than 50 years, primarily through educational efforts. It was only in the past decade that I realized the need to also engage in the political process."
...Grand Old Party veered right and set the stage for crushing defeat that fall, the young moderates and liberals who formed the Ripon Society argued, "The spirit that gave birth to Republicanism is still alive in the land of today."
"Obviously, he has the freedom to say what he likes. That's academic freedom" Cross said in an interview. "We want people to represent different points of view."
