I’ve long found Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center one of the most ridiculous figures on the American right wing. He has an amazing ability to make the dumbest statements with an arrogance that far surpasses his actual abilities. The rant he gave at CPAC is an excellent case in point:
For nearly 20 minutes, Bozell ran through a litany of right-wing outrages and supposed scandals as he declared that “something terrible is happening to our country [as] the radical left now controls most levers of political and cultural power and is using both in a relentless campaign to destroy the last vestiges of freedom in America.”“Tyranny is knocking at our door,” he warned, before declaring that the left “will do anything, using any means at their disposal, legal or otherwise” to strip conservatives of their freedom of speech and saying that the government isn’t “all that different from the East German Stasi.”
“Cultural fascism has arrived in America,” Bozell said. “Let us understand this soberly and unequivocally.”
Be afraid! Be very afraid!
