Fred Siegel: Liberalism Has Moved Too Far Left

Thursday, 20 Feb 2014 07:30 PM

Liberalism has moved so far to the left that John F. Kennedy would no longer recognize the Democratic Party were he alive today, says Fred Siegel, author of "The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class."

"It really begins in the wake of Kennedy's assassination," Siegel, a senior fellow at The Manhattan Institute, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"In the wake of his assassination, liberals are never able to come to grips with the fact that Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist, spent time in the Soviet Union."

Story continues below video.



"In a certain way, liberalism loses its mind …. All sorts of bizarre conspiracy theories are concocted and to this very day, if you would pick up the New Yorker on the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination, they were still blaming the city of Dallas for his assassination. That's bizarre."

Siegel believes the mainstream press collapsed in 2008 with the election of President Barack Obama.

"There is no mainstream press anymore. The press attached itself to Obama," he said.

Siegel added: "In a certain way, liberalism is stronger than ever as a political organizing force. Intellectually, it's in very bad shape."
