The Left's Favorite 'F' Word

Phil over at Umbrae Canarum achieves the right level of righteous indignation in his post on the Left's misuse of words like 'Fascist' and 'Nazi.' I think Phil may have gone too easy on Jesse Jackson. He might have pointed out how Brother Jesse always used to refer to Newt Gingrich's Contract with America as the Contract on America. And then there was Jackson's Hymie town remark. . .

Phil nicely encapsulates the essence of Fascism, and in a way that makes clear just how idiotic it is for a leftist to call a libertarian or a conservative a fascist. One must be spectacularly boneheaded to confuse someone who wants to limit the reach of government with a fascist.

Keep up the good work, Phil.
