Seeing the truth

As if to prove my point yesterday, the exact same wingnut website used by the racist/white-supremacist Holocaust-denier terrorist who attacked the Holocaust Museum yesterday, today attacked conservative commentator Shepard Smith of Faux News. The charge was called by the leading wingnut site, which made attacking Smith its mission. Reason? He dared to call them out when they’re crazy. They’re trying to get him fired, but what else are they up to? I hope Fox has good security, because militants who think that site is real and legitimate may very well decide to go after Smith.

It strikes me as notable when a conservative Faux News host, albeit one more normal than most, can see the reality of right wing extremism in America. Great! Now, what are they going to do about it?

I'm sorry to hear that. The current British brand of fascism - the British National Party - won two European Parliament seats in our recent elections.

This resurgence isn't surprising, it's a recession after all, but it's deplorable.

Any British readers of your blog might like to take a look at HopeNotHate.org.uk

The BNP victory even made the news here, with the clear subtext that this was a worrying thing. Actually, the BNP was the original subject of the two videos with the Lily Allen song that I posted awhile back.
