(EDITOR'S NOTE: Left? Right? Who can tell anymore? When former Trotsky lovers and Commie bitches like Chris Hitchens and David Horowitz reinvent themselves as "neo-conservatives," all bets are off. Now the formerly "conservative" National Review, founded by CIA-Reptilian William Buckley, is publishing what amounts to a love letter to the notorious mass murderer Leon Trotsky, who himself was murdered by an NKVD assassin in Mexico.)
In one of the more grotesque episodes in the ongoing slide of conservative opinion into nonsense and ideology, Stephen Schwartz, in a commentary for National Review Online, (http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment-schwartz061103.asp)
offered a flattering depiction of onetime Soviet Communist leader Leon Trotsky (1879-1940).
The loser in a power struggle with Stalin after the death of Lenin in 1924, Trotsky in exile, first in Norway and later in Mexico, had warned against the rise and spread of fascism.
According to Schwartz, who has made a career denouncing the danger of Islamofascism, the democracies should have heeded the admonitions of the antifascist Communist revolutionary Trotsky.
