'I do not think that word means what you think it means!

Via Wonkette, we get this lovely little rundown about Bill O'Reilly's...misunderstanding...of the word 'fascism.' How fascist are we? Let me count the ways!
From Wonkette:
Last night on "The O'Reilly Factor," in a debate about the teaching of intelligent design Bill O'Reilly dropped his own personal F-bomb:

O'REILLY: But what the argument is is that nothing about intelligent design should be introduced. And I think that's fascism.
Kind of a low bar, really.
We wondered what else O'Reilly might think is fascism.
Via Nexis, a partial list:
• The tactics of the ACLU
• Not letting city halls have a nativity display
• Prohibiting schools from calling winter break "Christmas holidays"
• Laws that ban discrimination against people with piercings
• The Virginia Military Institute not allowing time for voluntary prayer
• A flat tax on the wealthy
• Really, the tactics of the ACLU
• The Justice Department not answering his questions
• Crowds who shout down Arnold Schwarznegger
• Seriously, the ACLU is bad
• Liberal 527 groups
• Exposing kids to racy images is "libertine fascism," and we're just going to let that lie.

Boy, there sure are alot of fascists running around these days. And here I thought Generalissimo Francisco Franco was still dead!(Hat tip to Jesse Walker at Hit and Run for the link!)(Crossposted by Bostondreamer at FloridaBlues)
