The mask slips again

I've posted about the fascist "Long Live Death" sensibility before: it includes a lip-smacking love of violence, a doctrine of eliminationism, racial and/or cultural exclusionism, and crazy-ass paranoia about "Others."

And I've noted that, certainly on the fringes, there is no longer a clear demarcation between fascists and far-right conservatives--if there ever was. Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, for one, has finally had to acknowledge that bitter truth.

Just a short update then, if I may, before I attempt to rekindle my Christmas spirit.

I've already noted Best Blogger Kate McMillan's approving reference yesterday to the murder of journalists--68 in 2009 alone. It behooves one to read the comments of her regulars, as well: loyal psychopathic footsoldiers, for the most part, relishing violence and death--essential elements, it seems, of their diseased politics.

And here, unsurprisingly, is Nick Packwood (Ghost of a Flea) cheering on the beating of unarmed, passively resisting demonstrators in Copenhagen by Denmark's finest. He expresses his strong agreement with the UK Telegraph's Gerald Warner, a man whose pro-fascist leanings extend to defending the bombing of Guernica, and who put matters thus:

There was one good moment at Copenhagen, though: some seriously professional truncheon work by Danish Plod on the smellies.

Interesting how the allegedly anti-State folks--among whom we must number several Speech Warriors™--go all soft and gooey when the State brutalizes those with whom they happen to disagree, and happily applaud the murder of journalists who tell them what they don't want to hear.

Defending vicious homophobes and neo-Nazis against the fearsome Human Rights Commissions is, we are told, a matter of principle. It's all about freedom of expression, not the substance of that expression. Odd, then, isn't it, that those who crush that freedom with guns and truncheons attract the cheering support
of these erstwhile libertarians?

Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
