THE SPINE SEPTEMBER 25, 2007

Left-wing Fascism

As everybody knows Columbia University hosted Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on campus Monday.

Now, the Hoover Institution, a historically conservative center at Stanford University where several Mensheviks lived out their lives, wants to appoint Donald Rumsfeld as a senior fellow. The first item I saw about this was on the editorial page of the WSJ. The editorial was called "Demon Rummy."

Of course, there is a petition going around demanding that he not be appointed because Rumsfeld is "fundamentally incompatible with the ethical values of truthfulness, tolerance, disinterested enquiry." Already 3,000 professors, students, and alumni have signed it.

So it's Ahmadinejad, yes; Rumsfeld, no. Both are actually instances of left-wing fascism.
