One of the Radical Reich’s favorite piñatas, Juan Cole of Informed Comment, has a scathing piece up at Salon showing how much Aunt Sarah and her fellow quasi-Dominionists have in common with Islamic Fundamentalists.
An oldie but a goodie from 2003 in the same vein is “God’s Warrior Twins: Christian & Islamic Fundamentalism have a lot in common,” an article written by Kimberly Blaker. And if you’re not familiar with Frederick Clarkson of Talk to Action, you might want to take a gander at his work detailing the dangers that American Talibaners like Palin and her ilk pose to America.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Where some people see The Handmaid’s Tale as a dystopian warning, monsters like Palin see it as a blueprint.
