The PC Jackboot?

Reader comment on item: Bad News from Slippery Rock

Submitted by Paul Wakeford (United Kingdom), Apr 11, 2006 at 15:14

The first weapon of fascists and communists is to pull in the gullible and weak through thought control.

Both ideologies seek first to shame those who disagree - then ostracise and punish those who dare to continually and openly dissent.

Are we seeing a new fascism arising where, good is bad - bad is good. How much difference is there really between the ruling class of Animal Farm, Goebbels and his thugs and the new PC elite?
