Liberal Fascism

Catholic Report Review LF

An excerpt:

With my book, The Tide Is Turning Toward Catholicism, I have personal experience in trying to convince a world whose mind seems to be made up that Catholicism is declining, when in actuality it is not. Because of my experience, I have the utmost respect for Goldberg who tries to convince us that there is such a thing as “Liberal Fascism.” Goldberg takes us through a perilous journey that looks all too real. The teachings of the Church belittled priests and bishops mocked, the faithful laity ridiculed. It sounds a lot like a few cosmopolitan cities in 2008. However, Goldberg shows us this was well under way in some European cities in 1938. Like 1938 it seems that in 2008 the world looks on and pretends that attacks on the faithful and those nations who would do us harm are simply misunderstood. Goldberg shows us that in 1938 the purveyors of hate and terror were not misunderstood, but rather underestimated. Suddenly 2008 and 1938 don’t seem so far apart.

Ivy-League Schools Wither

A  number of liberal bastions are daily being hammered — especially the elite university and Silicon Valley. A Yale and a Stanford, or Facebook and Google, assume — for the most part rightly — that each is so loudly progressive that the public, federal and state regulators, and politicians would of ...

In Defense of the Iraq War

Today is the 16th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, and Twitter is alive with condemnations of the conflict -- countered by precious few defenses. Yet I believed the Iraq War was just and proper in 2003, and I still believe that today. When Donald Trump condemned the war during the 2015 primary campaign and ... Read More

Beto-mania and Our Cult of Personality Politics

Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s biggest fans and supporters insist he is a forward-thinking, future-oriented visionary, but no contender for the Democratic nomination feels more familiar than the former three-term congressman from El Paso. That’s because he has the highest combined score in both déjà vu ... Read More
