1968

Is This Worse Than '68?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

After his slim victory, Nixon declared that his government would take as its theme the words on a girl's placard that he had seen in the Ohio town of Deshler: "Bring us together." Nixon tried in his first months, but it was not to be. According to Bryan Burrough, author of "Days of Rage, America's Radical Underground, the FBI, and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence," "During an eighteen month period in 1971 and 1972, the FBI reported more than 2,500 bombings on U.S. soil, nearly 5 a day." No, 2018 is not 1968, at least not yet.
