A startling revelation from that World-Renowned scholar, J. Goldberg, Pt.Ld.
This combination of state power and murderous, genocidal intent is nowhere on display in America today, not in the Obama administration (contrary to what some overheated right-wingers claim) and certainly not among out-of-power conservatives and “tea partiers.”
Well, that’s a relief. And it’s best not to be confused on this point. Dr. Goldberg has, you’ll recall, assured us at some certain length (specifically, interminable) that Liberals are Fascists. But, you see, they are nice fascists, of the sort that don’t do what historical fascists most liked to do, namely, beat the everliving shit out of people they don’t like. To be sure, that doesn’t mean they’re not fascists, a term Goldberg specifically uses because he is, uh, opposed to name-calling. But still, gosh, genocidal intent! Obama? How ludicrous and absurd and ludicrous! How vulgar. Judicious Scholars such as the Reasonable Conservative J. Goldberg would never dare suggest such a thing…
(If you don’t already know where this is headed, welcome, new readers.)
For the Truly Enlightened, the precise sense in which Obama is a fascist is, according to an older, presumably less “evolved” Goldberg, or in other words a Goldberg of last summer, not that sense in which Obama has genocidal intent, heh, but, er, that sense in which his intent is genocidal:
From the LA Times:
Reporting from Washington — President Obama suggested at a town hall event Wednesday night that one way to shave medical costs is to stop expensive and ultimately futile procedures performed on people who are about to die and don’t stand to gain from the extra care.
In a nationally televised event at the White House, Obama said families need better information so they don’t unthinkingly approve “additional tests or additional drugs that the evidence shows is not necessarily going to improve care.”
He added: “Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller.”
There’s an interesting contradiction here. According to the pro-choice perspective, it’s outrageous for the state to interfere in a woman’s decision to terminate a pregnancy. But it’s pragmatic and reasonable for the state to consider terminating a person, if some money can be saved.
This logic is nothing new.
The final link, and you could see this coming down Broadway with its fly open blaring a tuba and rocking a clown nose… is a Wikipedia Final Solution link.
Goldberg has a powerful expressive interest in whipping up the crazy, but is terribly afraid of being called on it because then he just looks like a clown, and he desperately wants to be Taken Seriously.
