Is America a fascist state? YES, YES, YES argues The Daily Kos, whose case is slightly undermined by the fact that The Daily Kos hasn’t been shut down and none of its contributors executed in the street. Glen Wishard takes an opposing view.
Those poor Kos people, all convinced that the US somehow opposes Bush. Here’s news: even Syrians were in Bush’s corner:
While the results of this year’s American election may have liberal Democrats and much of the extended international community shaking their heads in disbelief, a surprising number of Arabs seem to have not only expected President George W. Bush’s return to power but also supported it.
Since I began teaching in Damascus six months ago, I have been continually surprised to find support and even admiration for Bush in that city, mixed in with the usual polemics about American imperialism. The presumed wildfire of anti-American and anti-Bush sentiment that has consumed much of Europe and Asia has apparently skipped over parts of the Arab world, where people often have more in common with Middle America than they do with the Middle East.
