I need help with some fact checking!
Our Opinions pages fact-checking staff of one (me) could use some help with a letter to the editor that arrived on my desk a few days ago. Can any of you help me verify the following statements in this letter?
1. Theodore Roosevelt is in the center of the TPM (The Progressive Movement) flag.
2. The latin words novus ordo seclorum (a new order of the ages) on the back of the $1 bill are proof that The Progressive Movement, led by Barack Obama, and deeply influenced by the followers of Marx and Lenin, are attempting to take over our nation and turn it into a "socialist state."
3. Teddy Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover were "Progressives."
4. Lenin said, "Students are useful idiots."
5. The preferred way of referring to President Obama is B.H. Obama.
6. We should not fear, because God is on the side of those fighting to save us from the evils of Obama and TPM (The Progressive Movement).
