How to Tell if You've Joined the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy

I have been reading Harry Stein for over twenty years and have always enjoyed his work. Although he has gone to the "other" side - that is, become a Republican, he hasn't lost his sense of humor. These are from his latest book.

How to Tell if You've Joined the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy

- "You hear someone talking about morality and you no longer instantly assume he must be a sexually repressed religious nut."

- "Watching network news, you notice that the person opposing affirmative action is identified as a 'conservative spokesman,' while the one supporting it is just a 'Harvard professor.'"

- "Black history month seems to last from February to July."

- "At your kids' back-to-school night, you are shocked to discover that only dead white male on your 10th grader's reading list is Oscar Wilde."

- “And by the end of the night you realize the only teacher who shares your values teaches phys ed.”

- "Try as you might, you just can't get yourself to believe screwing around on your mate qualifies as an addiction."

- “You’re actually relieved that your daughter plays with dolls and your son plays with guns.”

- “You sit all the way through Dead Man Walking and at the end still want the guy to be executed.”
