I was called a Fascist this week....

People network in social and professional environments, hence the popularity of such sites as Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. These keep us, as friends and colleagues, a click away from each other. I use all three sites on a daily basis and received my first official insult this week. The insults were just words and considering the source I am not offended, but the link he used to justify his claim left me utterly speechless. First, check out the YouTube link he provided and then check out the original article, sources, and a critique. I know what you are thinking, YouTube is a creditable source-why in the world did you ever look past that.
Being called a Fascist really got me thinking about the differences between our two main political parties. I think we can all agree it has moved past just the issues of taxes and abortion into a entirely new realm.


  1. Incredible but not surprising. The country has lost its way, I may not be around long enough to see it come back.

  2. They are losing ground and are getting desperate. Take it as a compliment. They feel you are worthy of the energy of attacking you. You must be doing something right. Here is a link to a video that shows that forms of govt are not right on one side versus left on the other. It runs from dictatorship to anarchy. What we are supposed to have is a constitutional republic. Not a democracy. Very educational.

    Oh, and if you can put up a followers gadget, I would love to follow your blog. Thanks.

  3. If they call you a Fascist, you must be doing something right.

  4. More than likely, he had no idea what it meant.

    Do what others have been saying, take it as a compliment.
