Fascism

You are currently browsing the archive for the Fascism category.

Sarah Palin is being ripped to shreds by two NYT Op-Ed columnists, first, Gail Collins in Sarah’s Straight Talk yesterday, and today in Now, Sarah’s Folly by Maureen Dowd.

Reader’s comments are closed on Sarah’s Straight Talk, but the one with the most votes is #13 and reads as follows:

Palin’s incoherence and lack of concentration are her political strengths. The segment of the electorate to which she appeals does not value intellect or eloquence. In fact, these qualities are feared because they imply a lack of faith. A person who is well educated, thoughtful, and can answer questions directly, in complete sentences, is exactly what Palin’s supporters do not want.

Comments on Now, Sarah’s Folly are not closed yet, but the most popular one so far is #14 which reads as follows:

I believe it was F. Scott Fitzgerald who wrote, “When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag carrying a cross…we will have fascism with a happy face.”

I can’t think of anyone who embodies that prophecy better than Good ‘Ol Sarah.

Finally, Debi has come up with some great quotes in her admittedly off-topic comment #3 to my previous post on the Bouncing Boltzmann Brain. Check her out!

What more could I add? :grin: :?:

Raving Lunatic Week!

Here’s a video by Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo explaining that this is the second day of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, October 22 – 26, 2007. Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is the brainchild of David Horowitz, a severe critic, it seems, of anything to the left of Attila the Hun. Students at George Washington University created a poster satirizing Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week and David Horowitz did not take this too kindly, as Josh describes in the video.

Josh is asking for email suggestions of how to celebrate Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week and says he will publish the most interesting suggestions.
