The Corner

Permanent Research Request

This is a request without deadline. Any time you see a prominent liberal refer to conservatives or Republicans as “fascists” or “Nazis” (or Hitlerite, Brown Shirts etc) I’d like to hear about it. Anti-war protestors, letters to the editor, obscure blogs and other below the radar venues aren’t that helpful. But Democratic Party officials, politicians, intellectuals in elite magazines, newspapers or interviews: these are the things I want. Those of you who’ve read or remember my “Springtime for Slanderers” column will understand what I’m looking for. Old quotes are useful too. I just need as much attribution as possible (date, place, link if possible, etc). Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. One request:pleaseput “fascist quote” or “Nazi quote” in the subject header.

This ... Read More

Good question. Last week brought the news that the head of Shambhala ... Read More
