there's nothing new today; in 2007 they are called the "green guard"

In 1966 they were called the "Red Guard." Today, they could be called the "Green Guard." I call them Liberaliars, and they are part of the 2007 version of liberal fascism.

The following is an excerpt from an article called "China's Cultural Revolution." It was written by Jim Yardley and it appeared in the December 11, 2006 version of "Upfront Magazine," published by The New York Times. As you read this excerpt, ask yourself one very important question--Are there any differences at all between the 21st Century radical left, as represented by people like Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, etc., and the Cultural Revolution of Mao Zedung?

By the afternoon of May 25, 1966, a group of radical professors at Peking University had finally finished drafting a large political poster. They took it to a campus commons area, hung it outside, and waited for a reaction. It would not take long.
The poster was a blistering attack against university administrators for failing to obey a new political campaign by China's paramount leader, Mao Zedong.
Mao was ordering a new revolution in China--one targeting the "bourgeoisie," capitalists, and authority figures in general--and he expected the masses to revolt. The poster at Peking University became the spark Mao was hoping for. Masses of students began protesting on campus in support of the revolution.
Mao ordered that the poster's message be broadcast nationally on the radio and published in newspapers. Soon the whole country was swept up in the furor.
The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, as the government called it, plunged China into a decade of chaos that brought the nation of 750 million people close to anarchy and civil war......
Students attacked teachers and teenagers attacked their parents in the name of heeding Mao's revolutionary call. People hung posters denouncing their neighbors. College and high school students across China formed groups called Red Guards that became the shock troops of the movement.
"To rebel is justified!" declared a famous slogan of the era.
Mao held massive rallies of Red Guards and called on students to destroy the so-called Four Olds: old culture, old customs, old ideas, and old habits. It was a rallying cry that unleashed the young against the old.
