Orcinus / David Neiwert's first take
on Goldberg's book.
Goldberg sure has struck a raw nerve amongst liberals. If it's all a bunch of crap, then why is it driving you so insane?
For the same reason it would irritate you if a liberal wrote a book called "Conservative Communism," which tried to sell the idea that Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh and Castro were all right-wing conservatives, and that liberalism is completely blameless for any of man's problems.
In other words, because it is crap. Liberals are not fascists, and fascists are not liberal. Conservatives are not communists, and communists are not conservative.
