Jonah Goldberg at Northwestern

Rightie pundit and author Jonah Goldberg will speak at Northwestern as a guest of the college Republicans on May 27th. Goldberg is often on the OpEd pages of theTribune, though his most recent piece, "Why we need nukes and Gitmo", appeared in the LA Times yesterday. No doubt he will be happy to sign your copy of Liberal Fascism.
Tuesday, May 27, 7pm,
NU College Republicans Present:
Jonah Goldberg
"Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning"
Harris Hall, Room 107
1881 Sheridan Road
Evanston, IL

Free admission, free parking

About the book:

"Fascists," "Brown shirts," "jackbooted storm troopers"—such are the insults typically hurled at conservatives by their liberal opponents. Calling someone a fascist is the fastest way to shut them up, defining their views as beyond the political pale. But who are the real fascists in our midst?

Liberal Fascism offers a startling new perspective on the theories and practices that define fascist politics. Replacing conveniently manufactured myths with surprising and enlightening research, Jonah Goldberg reminds us that the original fascists were really on the left, and that liberals from Woodrow Wilson to FDR to Hillary Clinton have advocated policies and principles remarkably similar to those of Hitler's National Socialism and Mussolini's Fascism.
