Fascism and fundamentalism


Fascism and fundamentalism

” In the Christian world, the trend is much less pronounced but still present. It exists in the increasing identification of mainstream fundamentalism with its more radical components, particularly the anti-abortion and anti-gay rights extremists. It is latent in the openly theocratic approach to governance propounded by Christian Reconstructionists and neoconservative moralists like Antonin Scalia.

And it has gained a popular voice in the violently eliminationist rhetoric increasingly aimed at liberals, particularly those opposed to President Bush’s war policies, much of it inflamed by conservative propagandists on talk radio like Rush Limbaugh.”

Scary stuff. Read the whole thing, as they say.
