Isaac Chotiner catches a great exchange between Glenn Beck and Jonah Goldberg:
BECK: What a nightmare this is. Can you give me any example in history where this kind of stuff has happened, what’s happening today, and what does it lead to?
GOLDBERG: …I’m not calling Barack Obama a Hitler and I’m not calling him Nazis and all the rest. But, you know, in fascism, we saw the people’s car. We call it the Volkswagen, where the state said what we’re going to do is we’re going to take over the auto industry, government and business and unions are going to get together and we’re going to create cars to fill a political need rather than a market need and give people these cars.
Also, am I the only one who thinks of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (“Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism’s in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself.”) every time I hear Jonah Goldberg sounding off on Liberal Fascism?
