“The quintessential liberal fascist,” says the cover blurb on Liberal Fascism, the new book of National Review writer and right wing blogger Jonah Goldberg, “is not an SS storm trooper. It is a female grade school teacher with an education degree from Brown or Swarthmore.”*
And they’re worried about how WE teach history?
AFT’s Ed Muir has a screenshot of the pertinent section of the book cover, along with other relevant information such as the fact that Swarthmore has no education major.
* This statement is so bizarrely outlandish that we initially wondered whether it was a parody or a spoof. But it appears not to be the case: Jonah Goldberg has actually just published a book by that name, which one can purchase at Barnes and Nobles, and there are screen shots of the entire book cover here. If an author can seriously argue that Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton are all fascists, does an elementary school teacher stand any chance?
