Frank Schaeffer’s Newspeak

Click here to see an interview by Rachel Maddow of Frank Schaeffer, former conservative and son of the great evangelical teacher Francis Schaeffer. He makes some legitimate points about unnecessary rowdiness at town halls about health care, as well as descriptions of the Obama administration as Nazis or Obama himself as Hitler. (It’s legitimate, however, that parallels are drawn between the Obama admin and fascist ideology; read Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism.”)

However, he unfortunately also says that all of this demagoguery will lead to violence on the part of conservatives. Unfortunate because the violence has come not from the right, but from the left. Here is one example.
