Liberal Fascism

Terror Versus Warmth

From a reader:

As a liberal Democrat I hate to say this.  I do, however, find something

unsettling about the way the left finds it perfectly appropriate to use

fear-mongering about global warming to scare up votes, but then reacts in

shock and dismay when Republicans use fear of terrorism to scare up votes.

I’m not sure why “if you vote for Republicans temperatures will rise and

Florida will sink into the ocean” is any better than “if you vote for

Democrats terrorists will win and a nuclear bomb will go off in New York

City.”  To be sure, I find the later much more distasteful, but I’m not sure

I can think of an intellectually satisfying reason why.

Me: I’m on a deadline, but I have some strong thoughts on this. More in a bit.
