Chinese Cultural Revolution Redux

When I read the words and witness the actions of the right-wing-nuts, I often conjure up comparisons with other cultural and social bigots, but it's always an unsatisfying exercise. In some respects, they are beyond compare, unique in their own right (no pun intended). Their whining, their intolerance, and their uber alles thinking are fertile ground for democratic criticism. But no one has yet done better comparisons than the billmon post on his blog.
