The Rise Of The New Fascism

Daniel Pipes writes at NRO on the left's new target for worldwide revolution: an imaginary construct labelled "Empire." Once again, we see the confluence between the left and Islamofascism; as usual, the bad guys are America and Israel, and as usual the proposed solution is meant to be the final one.

Pipes references Ernest Sternberg, who teaches at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. The author of Purifying the World: What the New Radical Ideology Stands For,
[Sternberg] then asks the vital question: Will the Left’s latest incarnation once again turn totalitarian? He finds it too early to answer definitively but points to several “totalitarian warning signs,” including the dehumanizing of enemies and accusations of mass murder. He warns of an inflection point when left-fascists “stand true to their cataclysmic rhetoric and strap on suicide belts or take up arms to become martyrs.” In other words, the dangers are real and present.
