You've probably already read about the Tea Party takeover
of the WWII memorial in DC.
"I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up," said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group.
I call upon Larry Klayman to lean over, shake his head, and dislodge the rocks from the confines of his skull. Here's the part
that wowed me:
A group of mostly Tea Party protesters waving the Confederate flag...
They waved a Confederate flag at a WWII monument? Interesting. These people have a very odd view of history.
The difference between the Confederacy and the Third Reich was...what
, exactly? If we allow any elasticity at all in our definition of fascism
, then I would argue that Jeff Davis ran the first fascist government.
