Fox News is evil incarnate (IOW, they're an "arm" of the GOP) -- so says White House Communications Director Anita Dunn. But one of the greatest mass murderers of all-time [Mao]? Dunn thinks he's just terrific.
Given that Hube often cites Newsbusters, I suspect he will be less than pleased [because he tries very hard to be intellectually consistent] to find this somewhat parallel instance of apparent Mao worship on that very prominent conservative media-watch website commenting on how to cure America's drug problems:
First, drug addiction needs to be viewed as a choice, not an illness. Mao Zedong, the former leader of China, cured 20 million opium addicts over just one weekend by announcing that anyone still addicted would be shot on Monday.
Yes, I realize that there is a large degree of difference between a website and a presidential advisor.
But it is really pretty difficult to lambast the other side with a straight face for citing one of the greatest mass murderers of all time when folks who share your own perspective are doing the same thing.
