The Mask of Fascism


In the opening of his book Liberal Fascism Jonah Goldberg quotes this wisdom from the late George Carlin:

When fascism comes to America, it will not be in brown and black shirts. It will not be with jack-boots. It will be Nike sneakers and Smiley shirts.

Mr. Carlin was very close with his prediction. It’s a smiling face but on a mask instead of a shirt. Many of the occupiers are wearing the Guy Fawkes mask from the movie V.

Andrew Klavan has an excellent essay reviewing the movie and the OWS gang’s philosophical connection to its fascist outlook. Read the whole thing.
