I suggest everybody read the book

"LIBERAL FASCISM The Secret History of the American Left From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning.
By Jonah Goldberg."

I quote from a review in, of all places, the New York Times:

"“Liberal Fascism” is less an exposé of left-wing hypocrisy than a chance to exact political
revenge. Yet the title of his book aside, what distinguishes Goldberg from the Sean Hannitys and
Michael Savages is a witty intelligence that deals in ideas as well as insults — no mean feat in the
nasty world of the culture wars."

The words "Liberal Fascism" in the title are, while in some extent
accurate, not reall what the book is about. It is about
the book's subtitle. And it really **is** "an exposé of left-wing hypocrisy"
and a good history of the word "fascism" and its relation to the
left.

It's also devastating, positively annihilating, to the far left.

Um... no. no, no, no, no, no.

I've watched this silly middle-school name calling food fight with a
sort of detached amusement, but wow... I'll give you the credit that you
honestly believe what you wrote above, but that doesn't mean it has any
semblance to what actually went on in Iran.

The Shah was nearly universally reviled and despised by the average joe,
and for good reason. Regardless of how "nice a guy" he may have
appeared to be in person ("A gentleman is someone who says one thing and
thinks another"), his government was exceedingly corrupt and he ruled
with an iron fist. Any dissenters tended to "dissappear" without
notice.

That's exactly right. But because you're stupid you didn't even
notice that THOSE ARE YOUR OWN WORDS.
