The Rise And Fall
Of Frank Church:

A Lesson for Conservatives

by Larrey Anderson - February 11th, 2010 - American Thinker

...when I a teenager, I thought Frank Church walked on water.

By accident -- or maybe it was fate -- my opinion of the senator from the great state of Idaho, and of his politics, started to change. I heard Frank Church deliver two speeches in two different parts of Idaho. (This would have been in the summer of 1974... )

Senator Church's first speech was given early in the day at a college in liberal northern Idaho. He banged on the podium and, in his stentorian voice, promised the (mostly progressive) audience that he would do whatever it took to protect the newly granted woman's right to choose under Roe v. Wade. The crowd (mostly young college students and their professors) went wild.

The second speech was presented in conservative (and mostly Mormon) eastern Idaho. Instead of banging on a podium, Church clutched the edges of the dais. Tears swelled in his eyes as he told the audience how precious were the lives of the unborn. The audience was emotionally enthralled by his oration.
There was a reporter who attended both speeches with me. He was a liberal friend and confidant of mine. The reporter seemed unperturbed...

This was 30 years ago. Yet Republicans still allow Liberals to get away with this hypocrisy. We still allow reporters to ignore the corruption of progressives. This article goes in to great depth of the evils practiced by Church in subverting the CIA, including allusions to the number of foreign allies who were killed as a direct result of this evil man's indifference to the costs of progressive corruption. The co-option into progressive corruption by the NRA is noted prominently in the article, with their on-going endorsement of progressives who pretend to be conservative by paying lip service to the idea of second amendment rights as their only conservative position. They quietly aid in the subversion of even these citizen rights where they can.

This article is an important lesson in the consequences of pretending that progressives are good people. They are not. They are evil and duplicitous and the consequences of their actions always harm our nation.
