1
00:00:14,290 --> 00:00:16,130
The american nation cannot,

2
00:00:16,460 --> 00:00:18,630
must not, and will not permit the

3
00:00:18,960 --> 00:00:22,800
establishment of another communist
government in the western hemisphere.

4
00:00:24,890 --> 00:00:31,730
If America's soul totally becomes poisoned
part of the autopsy must read Vietnam.

5
00:00:41,700 --> 00:00:43,320
Let us be united in peace

6
00:00:43,990 --> 00:00:47,700
let us also be united against defeat.

7
00:00:50,870 --> 00:00:51,750
For General Electric,

8
00:00:52,290 --> 00:00:53,290
here is Ronald Reagan

9
00:00:54,250 --> 00:00:57,670
Good evening ladies and gentlemen
tonight it's my pleasure to appear

10
00:00:59,630 --> 00:01:01,050
in the General Electric theater

11
00:01:20,730 --> 00:01:24,240
In 1970, attorney general John Mitchell
gloated:

12
00:01:25,110 --> 00:01:29,370
'This country is going so far right
that you're not going to recognize it.'

13
00:01:30,120 --> 00:01:32,870
But how much further to the
right could the US go?

14
00:01:33,960 --> 00:01:39,880
In 1970 there was Vietnam, Cambodia,
Laos, nuclear threats, surveillance,

15
00:01:40,300 --> 00:01:45,130
sabotage, dirty tricks, official lies,
racial polarization, crime,

16
00:01:45,880 --> 00:01:49,930
and still to come were war on drugs,
Chile and Watergate.

17
00:01:51,470 --> 00:01:55,390
But compared to the world that
Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush

18
00:01:55,850 --> 00:01:59,270
would usher in, one could almost
look back nostalgically on the

19
00:01:59,820 --> 00:02:01,360
Nixon era.

20
00:02:10,780 --> 00:02:13,830
Right-wing forces have always
operated freely and openly in

21
00:02:14,580 --> 00:02:18,540
the dark chasms of American life
where racism, militarism,

22
00:02:19,290 --> 00:02:24,090
imperialism and blind devotion
to private enterprise festered.

23
00:02:24,760 --> 00:02:28,590
The raw underbelly of fanaticism
has spun groups as disparate as

24
00:02:29,340 --> 00:02:30,680
the Ku Klux Klan

25
00:02:32,510 --> 00:02:33,850
Nazi party

26
00:02:34,600 --> 00:02:35,810
the Liberty League

27
00:02:36,600 --> 00:02:37,770
the American First'ers

28
00:02:38,850 --> 00:02:40,190
the John Birch'ers

29
00:02:40,940 --> 00:02:41,940
the McCarthyite's

30
00:02:42,360 --> 00:02:43,280
and the Tea Party

31
00:02:43,690 --> 00:02:48,200
spilling either hatred, bigotry or
simply ignorance of history.

32
00:02:49,620 --> 00:02:52,780
Beginning with Nixon's courting
of a new republican south

33
00:02:53,240 --> 00:02:56,500
and the success of George Wallace
as a third party candidate

34
00:02:57,250 --> 00:03:00,290
these forces migrated from the
fringes of American politics

35
00:03:01,080 --> 00:03:06,550
and the nether reaches of rationality
to a new home in the republican party

36
00:03:06,970 --> 00:03:11,600
which gradually banished its once
thriving moderate and liberal wings.

37
00:03:12,550 --> 00:03:16,630
Nixon had once said, domestic politics
interested him about as much as

38
00:03:20,020 --> 00:03:24,360
But on his watch, whether he liked it
or not, 18 year-olds won the vote

39
00:03:24,820 --> 00:03:26,030
censorship declined,

40
00:03:26,570 --> 00:03:29,610
and gays and lesbians emerged from the shadows.
