Paging Dr. Oshinsky


A reader just sent me this clip from Bloggingheads where Jonathan Alter concedes “there was a lot of fascism in the NRA.”

Of course, readers of my book or my  piece in the  current Claremont Review of Books, will also remember that Alter thinks FDR had pro-dictatorship speech writers or advisers pushing him to establish a dictatorship. It’s just that Alter doesn’t think it was a very big deal since FDR didn’t completely go along with that.
