Ah yes, those darned "liberals" are just so tolerant, open minded, warm and loivng aren't they?

Leftism and "liberalism" is a one way street.

The clerk probably wouldn't be able to define the word 'fascist' even after reading its definition.

Just wait till the right people are in charge, then this book clerk will be the first in line to put a bullet through the skulls of those who hold intolerant views.

Next time I'm North Beach I think I will stop there and see if they have Ann Coulter or David Horowitz's latest books.

"I do not believe in vile acquittals, phony appeasements, easy forgiveness. Even less, in the exploitation or the blackmail of the word 'peace'. When peace stands for surrender, fear, loss of dignity and freedom, it is no longer peace. It is suicide." -Oriana Fallaci

Leftists never actually believe in "Freedom". They know that practically no one will accept the logical outcome of Marxism which is the destruction of personal freedom in favor of collective control. Their kind of Freedom is better defined as "License".

I bet you could find a copy of Mein Kampf in City Lights.

Probably a few copies of the koran too.

I once knew a young Wellesley College graduate (no, not Hillary Rodham Clinton), who declared to me with a straight face that Ayn Rand was a fascist. Of course, Ayn Rand is well-known as an anti-fascist. It stands to reason that Rand's brand of freedom would be anathema to any "educated" leftist. I doubt that she came to use that word by accident, though - I imagine that the word 'fascist' was intentionally degraded, by the teachers at Wellesley and probably by those at other leftist bastions, to an all-purpose epithet devoid of any true meaning (other than that anything that they had been taught to disagree with was by definition 'fascist').

One of my sisters is also a Wellesley graduate. I love her very much, but sadly I know from firsthand experience that even though she is very bright, she is physically and mentally incapable of having a reasoned discussion of anything that crosses some imaginary line of political correctness. That must have been a learned response - because she shares the same genes and similar childhood home environment with me.

I am perfectly capable of fairly stating the views of my political opponents and debating them on an honest level - if I had to, I could take the opposite side in such a debate and score plenty of points. But that is out of the question with her and with her Wellesley-educated peers that I have met. My sister did not formally major in the intellectually- and academically-bankrupt field of "women's studies", but the stubborn and dogmatic responses that she shows to certain topics lead me to believe that she got infected with a full dose of it just by spending four years on that campus.

Todays liberals are the real fascists. And probably not all that bright. Calling things "fascist" by reflex is a good way to not have to think about them. I despise liberalism.

This reminds me of seeing two different cars this week with a sticker calling bush an "American Terrorist. The drivers of both cars were either in their late teens or 20's. I am not very that much older than they are. I could imagine some of the music they listen to. It is really sad to see people believing that tripe, especially when there is so much information to counter it. I wonder if these same idiots would hail Castro has a great humanitarian.

This is the kind of hypocrisy that is typical of the far left.
There is nothing surprising about this story at all except that the author was apparently surprised.

But let's also say that one of the great paradoxes of our time is that two groups most endangered by political Islam, gays and women, somehow still find ways to defend it.

Evil always eats its own. "By their fruits shall you know them," we were promised, and with failing to recognize their own harvest, fashionable moralists unite themselves to their own destruction.
