This is a well research book that makes the point that the American progressive movement of Wilson and others was closely linked philosophically to the fascist movements of Italy and Germany. Goldberg supports his theme with many quotes from progressive heros, leaders from Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, and historical documents and facts. Whether you agree or disagree you will find the text full of interesting facts.

Goldberg's Perfidious Revisionism Would Make Joseph Goebbels Proud

The Book "Liberal Fascism" would be funny if it were written in the context of a Monty Python comedy but unfortunately, Goldberg's book demonstrates the very essence of fascism itself by attempting to invert the meaning of a well known word in order to confuse and distort a well documented historical phenomena. To equate Liberalism (from the latin word Liberalis which means "free man") with fascism is tantamount to calling someone a "communist-capitalist, or "Catholic-Jew" or confusing a dog for a dolphin or giraffe with a salamander. The two have nothing in common, and are diametrically opposed virtual "opposites'. This book is in itself, a cynical, deliberate and contrived attempt to obfuscate the fact that the far right-wing sociopaths have ruthlessly hijacked the Republican party and have saturated their media disinformation industry with zealous assets who dispense pure calumny and lies on a 24/7 basis - all for the deliberate and malevolent purpose of subverting our precious democracy with true USA grade neofascism.

History irrefutably shows that liberalism is the mortal enemy of totalitarianism whether it be fascism or communism. Liberal institutions, policies, ideas and individuals have been systematically attacked, persecuted and killed by fascist and communist regimes throughout the historical record. Therefore it begs the question, if right-wing Republicans are anti-liberal, then they are by definition, "anti-liberty" and "anti-freedom". What does that tell you they are for? Do the math!

Fascism is thoroughly documented with in-convertible facts throughout the historical record in all it grisly incarnations whether it be German, Italian, Spanish or American fascism. Fascism consistently operates under the guise of nationalistic jingoism and the pious guise of religious fundamentalism, when the opportunity to exploit religion presents itself. The current USA brand is successfully masking itself under the harmless cloak of apple pie, cookies, flag, guns and Jesus, and Fox News which is not news but Goebbels inspired 24 hour a day propaganda willfully designed to mislead and ensorcel the viewers. Very clever, and it works!

In essence, Johna Goldberg is a paid propagandist for the true Oligarchical nucleus of American and maybe unwittingly, international "fascism". A word that the true fascist movement cleverly attempts to distort and twist so its unrecognizable and therefor allows them to continue their stealth operations under the sanitized, umbrella guise and grossly misleading term "conservative". To call Limbaugh, Palin, O'Reilly or Beck conservative is tantamount to describing Charles Manson as a mischievous boy-scout or Hitler & Stalin, "activists". Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Fox (fixed) News and their nefarious affiliates have one singular agenda: to continue their toxic metastases by applying the tried and true methodology of the infamous Nazi minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels "Big Lie" which simply repeats a simple theme and lie knowing that if the "lie is repeated often enough, the people will believe it". This is the true mantra of the right-wing and until we recognize it, expose it and defeat it, it will inevitably destroy the essence of American democracy and the "liberal" tenants that this country and constitution were built on. The hour glass is running, its almost checkmate.
