Journal Jeremiah Cornelius's Journal: Mort Sahl: Prophet 3

"Once the neo-fascists became bold enough to slay the President on the street, they showed their hand. They showed how arrogant they had become."

"(America) has to hang on through a period of the military and the CIA who have a blank check trying to sell fascism. If she can hang on long enough, Americans may yet live in the country in which they were born. And that is the country structured by Tom Paine and Tom Jefferson."

"(Fascism in America) started with the death of Roosevelt. They moved in and they negated every treaty we made with every world leader who didn't fit the fascist/militarist mold."

Ahhh.. Sahl never lived to see his anticipated renaissance. Nor shall we.
