Coddling those America-haters

Atrios raises an excellent point WRT the matter of "Marxists" leading the antiwar marches in this post today:

For all the talk about how the protesters were "supporting ANSWER" why do my friends on the other side never worry too much about supporting the theocratic aims of Reverend Moon and the Unification Church?

There's little doubt the Unification Church is a more potent threat than Marxism in today's world. For one thing, they have a lot more followers.

And there's little doubt about his motives. He calls America "Satan's harvest" and has vowed to remake it as a theocracy, with himself as head of state: "History will make the position of Reverend Moon clear, and his enemies, the American population and government will bow down to him," he told his followers in a mid-'80s speech. "That is Father's tactic, the natural subjugation of the American government and population."

And as Atrios adeptly points out, the complicity of the GOP in this man's operations goes way, way beyond merely showing up at a demonstration he organized.
