Islamic fascism

Originally published 9/12/06:

I like this man’s take on the new term, “Islamic Fascism.”  He says:

“The rhetoric about “Islamic fascism” is a pack of lies–another attempt to repackage the increasingly unpopular “war on terror” by identifying a current enemy of the U.S. government with something that everyone can be counted on to oppose.”

He goes on to explain that those we unify under this banner don’t have anything in common with the entities we called fascist back in the day.  I suppose that this term is used by us in much the same way we use the term, “terrorist.”  Another way of separating us from them, us as the pillar of righteous morality, and them as the low-lives.

It’s a nice article.  I don’t agree with everything he says, but read it for yourself.
