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.

    1. but tim, all this cheap oil we’re getting now is fueling the gulags in minnesota, where dissedent slaves are forced to laboriously hand-copy like monks of old lileks’ book! that’s why he’s constantly imploring us to buy more copies, to keep all those slaves painfully busy!

    1. Holy Keyrist, the Washington Post is exposing US military secrets on Page 1! Did you know about the secret jails for Al Qaeda killers? Neither did they!

      This is the dumbest fascist state ever, it can’t even keep its secrets…

    1. Well, honestly.  What else do you expect from a Diary Whore?

      I say, let’s show ‘em real fascism, and force them to unzip and measure.  Then we can all stand around and point and giggle.

    1. Kos and some of his comrades admirably fit the description of people who are educated beyond their intelligence. I say “some” of his comrades, because many give evidence of lacking even a veneer of learning, as well as being deficient in basic cognitive ability. I wonder if Soros really believes he’s getting a good return on his investment?

    1. Mr. Bingley: what’s really sad is they have to hand-illuminate copies of Interior Desecrators. Several have already succumbed to madness after attempts to render the wallpaper on page 122.

    1. There was an article on AM today about a pro-USA Palestinian.

      KHALED ZIGHARI (translated): No doubt whatsoever, I look at the US soldiers as people who liberated me, I have great respect for them. Without them, I would still be a guest of Saddam Hussein.

      It also describes Abu Ghraib as “Saddam Hussein’s most notorious hell hole”. Glad to see the media has got a sense of proportion for a moment.

      No idea, but one thing that has always struck me about the Daily Kos with its myriad “contributors” is that it’s obviously trying to make up in quantity what it lacks in quality.

    1. “…none of its contributors executed in the street.”

      More’s the pity.
