Marcus Tullius Cicero---Roman Statesman---Speech in the Roman Senate - 42 BC
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
The punkneos cut their politics to fit their hidden agenda. The "Uriah Heep Factor" kicked in big time.
Conservatives were aware that the "Uriah Heeps" were plotting and planning to co-opt conservatives for their own hidden agendas------and were obsessed with religious cleansing of the Repub Party. The Uriah Heeps manhandled social conservatives----and diluted the party for their own self-serving agendas.
Dickens' Uriah Heep was notorious for wielding undue influence, a bounder who was always planning and plotting, ingratiating himself into the confidence of others. Uriah was obsequious, manipulative, and wormed his way into positions of influence. Uriah was a consummate con man, and not to be trusted. Translated into the language of the popular culture, the Uriah Heeps manipulated and used conservatives to advance their own agendas and ambitions.
The neopunks smelled the power of conservatives, and grew in their desire to exercise control over the Republican party, and to kick so/con conservatives to the curb.
The Uriah Heeps' sense of entitlement fed on the victories of others. They become more and more power-hungry and will deploy their self-serving strategies to selfish purposes. These charlatans bring harm to conservative interests, to the rights of the unborn, religious freedom, the restoration of American culture.
At their very core----the Uriah Heeps evince an elitist, unmitigated contempt for religious conservatives, and all we stand for, but held their noses, and co-opted the party for their self-serving purposes.
