Via lots of leftie blogs, comments on Jonah Goldberg’s jaw-dropppingly stupid new book: ‘Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning‘
I’ve just looked at what’s on Amazon about it, and read the cites on the blogs.
At some point, you dilute the meaning of words until they don’t mean anything at all. I don’t like lots about what passes for liberalism now; and I’m also not shy about suggesting that the Islamists share characteristics with fascism – but here’s a key difference: fascists actually brutalize and kill people.
Liberals are annoying, and over-regulate things.
When gangs of Green thugs start beating down Hummer drivers, we can start talking about this. Until then, can I implore everyone – right and left – to find a new friggin’ metaphor?
