For those of you interested in the debate surrounding Jonah Goldberg’s forthcoming book, Liberal Fascism, you will want to check out his appearance on the Glen and Helen Show:
It’s sure to make a splash, and it’s already got some left bloggers in a tizzy even though it doesn’t come out until next week. It’s Jonah Goldberg’s new book, Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning. The title comes from H.G. Wells, and the history won’t be news to people who’ve paid attention — which means it will be news to a lot of people, but Goldberg has a lot to say about the “progressive” roots of both socialism and fascism and the way they’re reflected in contemporary politics. Plus, thoughts on the Hillary and Huckabee candidacies.
I have already commented on the book in galley form, but I plan to review it more fully once it is published. I think anyone who listens to the podcast will see that Jonah has done his homework and has interesting ideas to debate.
