There are no fascists there

Hoo boy, look at ex-Chi newsman Roger Simon’s saying today’s war on Muslim terrorists is not “ fighting predatory fascism that [is] trying to take over the globe.”  It’s at Transterrestrial Musings, where Rand Simberg draws a bead on that notion.

 If that word [totalitarianism, substituted by Simberg for fascism, now applied to any disagreement with any leftist position] can't be applied to people who want to run every aspect of everyone's daily existence, will brook no dissent, and have no apparent value for human life, as the Jihadis objectively do, then to who does it apply?

Etc.  Very good, Rand Simberg, but it’s to whom, dammit.
