Like creationism, there has to be some pushback against all forms of well-funded and highly orchestrated movements to propel ignorance into the mainstream. Goldberg's book hit #3 on the NYT best seller list. We can try to ignore, but unfortunately not enough of America will to make it a viable strategy. Helpful reviews like Michael Tomasky's and the work done at Orcinus that place well-deserved ridicule on Liberal Fascism are necessary, unfortunately.

Ignoring Liberal Fascism; Worked Well for Dealing with Creationism
As much as it would be nice to ignore Goldberg's stupid thesis, that is probably the worst response the left could embrace. Liberal Fascism is a lot like creationism: selective use of facts, quoting out of context, the supposed "oppression" from the intellectual elite. Most scientists think that the best response to creationism is to just ignore it. Yet it continues to fester. Right now, creationists are pushing change public school curricula standards in FL and TX to include creationist and/or anti-evolution view points.
