Lots of liberals call conservatives “fascists” today…

But they obviously don’t know the meaning of the word.  If they knew, they’d know that today’s fascists reside on the left–not the right.  It’s fascists who want to tell you where you can and can’t smoke.  It’s fascists who want to tell you what to eat.  It’s fascists who want to tell you what cars you can buy and what clothes you can wear.  It’s fascists who want to tell you how much money you can make and take whatever they think you don’t need.  It’s fascists who think your kids belong to the state and that your parental rights only extend to providing them food and shelter.  It’s fascists who want regulated speech on the radio and college campuses.  Mussolini, Hitler, and Lenin were all fascists (Marx wasn’t–but Lenin realized that the only way he could sell Marxism was with nationalism attached–hence, communism).  Communists tried to separate themselves from fascism because it was a competitor for the same market–not because it was distinctly different.  Then it became fashionable for communists to call anybody that didn’t tow the party line a “fascist”-kinda like American liberals do today.

For a great read on the fascism of the left, see Jonah Goldberg’s book,
