Interview with Tom Bethell

Interview with Tom Bethell, American Spectator, December 1991.


“The Democratic party is falling apart,” he said. “Which is lucky for us. It’s completely out of sync with the public. What’s happening to the Democratic party is the same as what has been happening to the Labour party in England. It’s becoming more and more the captive of ideological groups who are very influential but do not constitute a majority. I do not see how that can change.” He cited the feminists, who already were baying on behalf of Anita Hill–long before they could have known whether she was telling the truth. “And the media is populated by these same people, which gives them tremendous resonance,” Kristol added.
