Author's Notes:

[1] There is no indication or evidence that any of the historical figures quoted in the Hague First Inaugural Address or elsewhere in this chapter, among whom are Patrick Buchanan, M. G. Robertson, Paul Weyrich, Keith Fournier, Gary Bauer, Jerry Falwell, and Newton Gingrich, would have supported or associ ated themselves in any way with any of the actual positions or actions that Jeffer son Davis Hague or any members of his government or political parties took, at that time or in the future.

[2] Named for the island on which it took place, "Iwo Jima" marked the penul timate major battle of the Pacific War in 1945.

[3] In her Note Conroy did not identify which sections of the speech were based on the words of which of the "patron saints." But with some detective work and using the process of elimination, it has been possible to determine with a fair degree of certainty just who was responsible for what. The putative sub"'authors are named in the text in [ ], and the putative sources are listed under their names in the reference list at the end of the chapter.

[4] Poughton could also have referred to the use, start ing in the 1980s, by Right"'Wing Reaction with help from the Right"'Wing Democrats, of the Immigration (see Chapter 4) and Welfare (see Chapter 7) issues as if they were truly significant causes of the major problems facing the country, which they were not, to promote distraction and hate.

[5] See also the quote from Michael Levin that ap pears in Chapter seven (below), p. 88
