Fascism raised its ugly head at the DNC

And if this isn't fascism, let me know the right word for this kind of behavior.

Conservative talk-show hosts who came to Charlotte to interview political figures are furious. For the first time in anyone’s memory, Radio Row — the designated set of booths available to visiting talk-show hosts — has seen restrictions placed on its use by Team Obama. DNC staffers at Radio Row will book leading Democrats for slots on conservative stations but then cancel the appearances an hour or so before broadcast “because you’re not our audience.”

Roger Hedgecock, a former mayor of San Diego now hosting a nationally syndicated talk show, decided to pack up and leave Charlotte early because “we were blocked from getting any guests that mattered. It was a complete freeze.” Larry O’Connor of Breitbart Radio told me, “It was the most bizarre act of censorship. These shows paid large fees and spent thousands on equipment setup and they couldn’t do their programs because of interference.”

Oh, hey. I'm back.

I looked up fascism. Here's the complete, illustrated definition.

    "Oh, hey. I'm back."

    And right glad we are to have you, too.

    I would note that fascism's ugly head was reared all over that convention. What a fustercluck! From the crumbling sand Messiah to the incredible shrinking venue to the floor fight over God it was an unmitigated disaster.

    Dems showed what they really are...ugly. Voters will remember in November.

    If the "leading" Dems choose not to appear that's their choice - fascism is about not having a choice. How is this fascism? And the only reason conservatives want Dems on their shows is so they can bully them about what the conservatives think and not give them a chance to defend themselves - that's how all these conservative shows operate - I've seen it time and time again on Faux News, and it's simply astonishing to me the amount of spin that's being applied to this situation.
