Hitch = Hitler 

You haven't quite made it until you've been called a fascist.

So - welcome to the club, Hitch. Glad to have you with us.

That this life-long Trotskyite and a mortal and vocal enemy of bin Ladenism and Saddamism should be called a "fascist" shows just how clueless some on the left really are. With his anti-Stalinist background, though, I'm sure Christopher Hitchens will understand the delicious - though sick - irony of being tagged with the all-purpose communist term of abuse.

In the past, the term "fascist" was used by the Kremlin and its stooges who of course knew better (for example, members of Poland's Home Army who spent six years in the forests fighting the Nazis were called fascists). Nowadays, it's just used by those who should know better, but who in reality wouldn't know fascism if it came over to them and repeatedly kicked them in the groin with a jackboot.
