Trotskyite turned Bircher

To all ex-SWP'ers out there:

In the Jun 19 Nation, Marc Cooper reports on the NRA convention. Guess
who turns up as a member in good standing of the NRA *and* the John Birch
Society? None other than Lee Smith, a minor functionary who spent 15
years in the party.

Of all the people who went through the revolving doors of that mental
institution, Lee seems to be the single person--as far as I know--who has
done a "Mussolini". Hmmm, could this mean that we're not living in so
reactionary period as we think?
