Think our president smells a tad fascist these days?

Thanks for sharing this article. No question about it, Bush is a fascist (and Cheney and Rumsfeld and Rice, et al.) and too many people are afraid to say it. Remember the great article (Slate?) with an interview of novelists about who they'd vote for? Russell Banks called Bush a fascist there and I was so proud of him for speaking the truth. In my small conservative community, I wrote many letters to the editor during the campaign. I was afraid to use the word, but I took an accepted definition, much as Beck does in this article, and then used the attributes of fascism to describe the Bush regime. When you do it that way, it really is indisputable.

There are some frightening stories of people being harassed for having bumper stickers or speaking their minds. And this business of having his face on a billboard is...well, it certainly mimics the fascist mentality, doesn't it?

This is terrifying, but a really, really good article. Thanks for sharing, Katrina.

Your welcome, Katie! The whole administration is terrifying. And some people's complacency.
