I wouldn’t doubt the editorial board of the NYT is also aware that the policy of the Nazi party was pretty close to what they are recommending, the confiscation of guns — for the National Socialists so that they could be sure they were only in the hands of those deemed acceptable (not Jews, etc.). To use Orwell’s term this time, that would make the NYT “objectively pro-fascist.”
But perhaps less harmful than our own government. Reacting to the San Bernardino Islamic ideology-based terror rampage… er, workplace violence… the first thing out of our attorney general’s mouth was to warn James Comey, director of the FBI, that the real danger from this event was anti-Muslim backlash and to watch his language. In other words, don’t call a duck a duck. According to DCWhispers, the order had come down from Obama and Jarrett to Lynch, in which order was unspecified, that Comey’s statements should be bowdlerized. It was.

(By the way, to demonstrate my new bona fides, I am writing this from the Bullets & Bourbon event at Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose, Texas. It’s been great. Hope you can make it next time. Photo [below] features me with Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit, PJM’s Dr. Helen, and Nina Yablok, PJM’s attorney, at Rough Creek Lodge’s tactical shooting station.)
