Sorry Al, but people who offer corrections to partisan lies in the press aren't "digital brown shirts". If you don't believe me, ask Lileks or Powerline.
If you want to throw around the "brown shirt" idea, then use it somewhere where it applies. Like with this: Movie Goer Assaulted at Fahrenheit 9/11 Showing. Or when protesters express their opinions and are assaulted by Teamsters. The goons are on your side, Al.
But then I guess we can't expect a man who flunked divinity school during the Vietnam War to know jack about history.
