      As the Orcinus blog often pointed out, Jonah Goldberg had to tie himself in knots to avoid mentioning real Fascists in the United States, from the German American Bund in the 1930s to the present.

      It would be possible to debate whether the KKK is actually "Fascist," but they do march with NeoNazis. So, maybe not "Fascist" per se, there's a big overlap in their beliefs and even group affiliation.

      Whenever some goober on the WaPo comments section would say "Nazis were  liberals" I would say "Well there are plenty of real Nazis around, and I'd be happy to drive you around to find some so you can explain to them that they are "liberals," just as long as I can record the video of when they curbstomp you."
