Not ultra conservatives

Reader comment on item: Conservative Professors, an Endangered Species
in response to reader comment: Why ultra-conservatives feel marginalized

Submitted by Biresh (India), Jan 11, 2009 at 15:16

Dear writer, Though I agree with the spirit of your article I wish to clarify that bush and Co were conservative only in name. They were in fact neo fascists of the extreme right. The war on Iraq was no war on terror like the one being fought in Afganistan. Iraq war was about oil. Bush gave billions of dollars to an unrelaible islamofacsist military govt in pakistan. These people should not be called ultra conservative. Ultra conservatives are traditional conservatives who apart from having strong religious and cultural beliefs, behave like garden variety conservatives. Fascistic neo cons are not ultra conservatives. Many erstwhile facsists realised the horrific consequences that a fascist revolution can bring and they became ultra conservative. For example Mr. Franco Fini of Italy. I too am a hindu ultra conservative. I am from India. Fascists, anarco facscists, neocons and terrorists believe in using violence to further political objectives which an ultra conservative would be afraid of. And yes, ultracons are educated also though they may not look that smart.
