Subject: RE: BS: RFKennedy, Jr., - Palin quotes fascist
It shouldn't be too hard to find positive statements about the culture of small-town America from any number of sources, since that sentiment has been expressed by many writers over the last 200 years. You don't need to read Nazi ideologues to find a quote like that. The fact that his writings were used at all says something significant about the mindset of Palin's team.
The Goering thing is quite different - if anybody was an expert on manipulative warmongering, he was, so it's telling to have him saying how he did it in his own words, and to find that those words are such a close match to what the American state is doing at present.
