Will Big Sis come and get me for this?
A commenter at Lydia McGrew’s blog at What’s Wrong with the World wrote the other day:
BTW, this snippet of Lawrence Auster’s will fuel the liberal leftist’s unhinged paranoia about conservatives:
UPDATE, 7:50 p.m.: Now that I think about it, the word “overthrow” carries the meaning of “to terminate a government by force.” I believe that it is a crime to advocate the overthrow of the U.S. government by force. So I’ll change the word in the original entry to “dismantle.” I personally have believed and have said for many years that the modern regime of the U.S. is unconstitutional and that large parts of it need to be dismantled. The point of my comment about counterrevolution is that as of June 28, 2012, any conservatives who do not think that the present regime of the U.S. should be dismantled, any conservatives who still believe in the U.S. as presently constituted, are supporters of a leftist lawless state. The ONLY genuine conservatism now is counterrevolutionary conservatism.
Another way I’ve seen it put:LA replies:
You may be right that it looks better with the hyphen. For some reason, I’ve always spelled it without the hyphen.
