The punchline is fascism ...

... Adam Kirsch takes down Slavoj Zizek: The Deadly Jester.

It's about time somebody took serious aim at this odious gasbag.

The curious thing about the Zizek phenomenon is that the louder he applauds violence and terror--especially the terror of Lenin, Stalin, and Mao, whose "lost causes" Zizek takes up in another new book, In Defense of Lost Causes--the more indulgently he is received by the academic left, which has elevated him into a celebrity and the center of a cult.
Maybe the academic left is no more liberal than Zizek.
