The Glenn and Helen Show: Jonah Goldberg on Hillary, Huckabee, and Liberal Fascism
It's sure to make a splash, and it's already got some left bloggers in a tizzy even though it doesn't come out until next week. It's Jonah Goldberg's new book, Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning. The title comes from H.G. Wells, and the history won't be news to people who've paid attention -- which means it will be news to a lot of people -- but Goldberg has a lot to say about the "progressive" roots of both socialism and fascism and the way they're reflected in contemporary politics. (He goes out of his way to make clear, though, that he's not saying liberals are fascists.) Plus, thoughts on the Hillary and Huckabee candidacies.
