It's book burning time! Yay! Let's get the S'mores!

Nazi book burning Berlin May 10 1933

The conservative (nee Fascist) magazine "Human Events" nominated their "Ten Most Harmful Books." There are predictable names and titles amongst the list: Hitler, Marx, Mao...but...Betty Friedan? Simone De Beauvoir? Margaret Mead? John Stuart Mill's "On Liberty"?????? OMGWTFBBQ?!?!

Well, that definitely shows where their head's at. Feminism bad. Liberty bad. Napster bad.

Here's some of the Great Deep Thinkers who came up with the list:

Harry Crocker
Vice President & Executive Editor
Regnery Publishing, Inc.

Phyllis Schlafly
Eagle Forum

Fred Smith
Competitive Enterprise Institute

AHA! There's what's wrong with this picture!

Anyway, here's the list, complete with sponsored Amazon.Com links. :P And here's the DailyKOS diary that brought the list to my attention.

I still can't get over the fact that John Stuart Mill is on the runners-up list. Why do you hate our freedom? Why do you hate America? Why? Why??????
