 American fascism at the grassroots

The always excellent Dave Neiwert has a long piece on how the whole Chan Chandler event is just the tip of the iceberg:

Anyone, even children, who dare to voice a dissenting opinion about our "glorious leader, George Bush" are immediately labeled as trouble makers and the kids are subtly ostracized by not being invited to birthday parties etc. Most of the teachers aren't right-wing radicals but the administration is and they dare not disagree with anything that the headmaster says for fear of losing their jobs....
