To my knowledge there's just one man
That's really a true American: George Lincoln Rockwell.
I know for a fact he hates Commies cus he picketed the movie
Exodus.

--Bob Dylan, "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues" 

Q. Who wrote the following?

"The white male is the Jew of liberal fascism."

A. Strom Thurmond

B. Ian Stewart Donaldson

C. Jonah Goldberg

D. P.W. Botha

E. Lester Maddox 

Answer: C. Tribune company star columnist Jonah Goldberg. While I find it deeply amusing that the former Web editor of the National Review is emerging as the Louis Farrakhan of upper-middle-class white conservatives, I wonder if Sam Zell might be better off retaining an actual reporter over Goldberg, because such sentiments can be found anywhere.

The bloggers at Sadly, No! got an advance copy of Goldberg's upcoming masterpiece Liberal Fascism: From Hegel to Whole Foods (cover art stolen from a white supremacist girl group), and they've done a masterful job of tearing it apart. Did you know that the Nazis were environmentalists, and thus environmentalists are fascists? That some Nazis were gay, and thus gay rights are fascist? You'll learn that and much more from one of the youngest and most widely read syndicated columnists in the country.
